Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Dead at Age 58

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has passed away at the age of 58!

The controversial political leader lost his two year long battle with cancer in a military hospital in Venezuela on Tuesday (March 5).

Vice President Nicolás Maduro just announced the news and said that he was on the way to the hospital where Hugo was being treated when “we received the hardest and most tragic information that we could transmit to our people.”

Hugo had not been seen nor heard from since releasing some proof-of-life photos on February 15.

He was NOT a dictator because he was chosen by his people!! Or maybe you’re just so ignorant that you don’t know the difference…

This has looked like a murder since Day 1.

given cancer by the cia

a good man and leader… IF someone have not something good to say , better dont say a thing… for respect…

Unfortunately, he will not be entering through the pearly gates. He died young. Must have been all the venom inside him.

he was NOT an amazing man he was a murderer and a dictator that destroy everything GOOD that my venezuela was.. I live here and right not he couldnt be happier!! yes, he was a human being! and you’re asking right now for respect?? where’s the respect to all the people starving to death?? or to all the people that lost everything they had?? including jobs, houses! everything they worked for?? stop saying he was amazing! he WAS NOT! thanks to him we are also known for being one of the most dangerous cities in the world! right now we only can pray for what’s next.

I’m venezuelan, and is true, he was a dictator and he REALLY won the first election…. The rest was bought by money, because he gave away a lot of money…. All the powers are controlled by “chavistas” by people who just do what he want to do

RIP Hugo Chávez. I’m not happy about his dead but I’m not sad either… he split my country… Now we need faith to Venezuela back to what used to be

leader? legend? this fcker killed millions of people, cheated on voting polls, robbed people of their properties, gave away the country’s only resource, fckep up relationships with other countries, stole, FOOD is a fcking luxury ok? people live off of flour and cola, vegetables and fruit needing to be imported and therefore pricier than they should be. this guy, for the last ten years, has been on a traveling spree, barely setting foot in the country, his kids going off to paris for madonna concerts while “his” people plain struggle. and dude, he’s been dead since like, last year, the government kept hiding it, telling people he had “just arrived from cuba” shown “recent pictures” of him. all bullsht. GOOD EFFIN RIDDANCE

why the hell is this on justjared?

@Sofia: He WAS a dictator that only became president for many years because he manipulated the population with his fraudulent laws,with the media and by brainwashing people.He was crazy and delusional.He wasn’t an angel.He was a human being,but wasn’t a good person.Venezuela was a great place before Hugo Chavez,but after him,it became poor,unstable and corrupted.If i feel for a crazy dictator’s death?No.But if i feel for his family…?Yes.Cancer is a horrible disease,and nobody deserves dying because of it.But he was a delusional dictator,a criminal.
