Bolivian leader Evo Morales: Hero or villain?
President Evo Morales portrays himself as an environmental defender at the United Nations (UN) while Bolivia burns.
The socialist leader does not hesitate to take the pressure off himself and blames the capitalist system for the fires that have devastated more than 4 million hectares of forest and jungle.
However, his critics point out that during his speech at the UN, Morales did not mention the devastating fires started as a result of his decree that gives the green light to permanent burning.
The leftist also blames the millionaire without mentioning that in the 13 years Morales has been in power his fortune has tripled.
On the contrary, official reports show that during the same period, Bolivia is the country that makes the least reduction in poverty in the entire region.
