Hotel In Cuba Claiming Fidel Castro Is In Good Health & Didn’t Suffer A Stroke

News spread like wildfire on Friday that Fidel Castro suffered from a massive stroke and was on his death bed. Reports said that Castro was doing so badly that he only had weeks to live, couldn’t speak or eat, and had a hard time recognizing anyone. Now Havana’s Hotel Nacional issued a statement saying that the 86-year-old former dictator is alive, well, and made a public appearance there on Saturday afternoon. There are no pictures or other proof other than the statement made by the hotel that he is alive and when Cuban officials were asked about it, they directed the questions to the hotel. It seems to me that Cuban officials and the hotel are just attempting to keep the truth about Fidel’s health a secret so they don’t seem week, which has happened in the past in other dictator run countries.
