Fidel Castro criticizes health rumours as fresh pictures emerge

Havana, Oct 22, (RHC), — Cuban Revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro criticized those who spread rumours about him being seriously ill in an article published Monday by Cuban media.

Fidel Castro has insisted he is in very good health and can’t even remember “what a headache feels like”.

Photographs of the revolutionary leader looking the picture of health, as he strolled around a farm wearing a straw hat and plaid shirt were also released on Monday.

”Birds of bad omen! I don’t even remember what a headache is,” he wrote, saying said he was offering accompanying photos to “show what liars they are”.

The photos showed a relaxed looking Castro strolling between trees on what appeared to be farm, supported by a cane. In one, he held Friday’s copy of the Communist party’s Granma newspaper.

”Although a lot of people in the world are taken in by the organs of information, almost all of which are in the hands of the privileged and the rich that publish these stupidities, people are increasingly believing less and less in them,” he wrote.

On Sunday, visiting former Venezuelan vice president released a photo of a meeting he had the previous day with Fidel in Havana.

”He had the courtesy of bringing me to the hotel,” Elias Jaua said Sunday, adding that the Cuban leader had been “very lucid” and looked “very well.”
