Bolivian President Speaks with New Voice after Larynx Surgery

LA PAZ – Bolivian President Evo Morales publicly tried out his new voice at the press conference he held on Monday after completing his convalescence from the larynx surgery he underwent in Cuba on April 1 and which until now had him speaking in a low, quiet voice.

After meeting with the armed forces high command, the president spoke with the media at Government Palace in La Paz early Monday morning, repeating that his throat operation “happily went well” and thanked everyone for their “prayers, blessings and the rites of native peoples” so that he would get better.

Cuban doctors at Havana’s Surgical Research Medical Center (Cimeq) removed the benign tumor from Morales’s left vocal chord that was making him hoarse.

“I feel really well,” said Morales without the gravelly voice that had afflicted him increasingly since last January, when he made a long speech to commemorate his 11 years in power, then kept making it worse with the many speeches he gave around the country.

He added that when he was recovering in Cuba, he heard reports that he had died, and to those who would say such a thing, he responded that he feels “much stronger, restored and really overhauled enough to keep on working.”

Until this Monday, Morales has followed doctors’ orders not to talk a lot and only in a low voice to aid his recovery.

Asked by the press, Morales spoke easily on what the government will do about the two construction works abandoned last month by the Spanish company Corsan Corviam and the wage negotiations with the Bolivian Workers Central (COB), among other subjects.

After meeting with the media, Morales traveled to Cochabamba to give a speech at the opening of a school in the San Francisco community, and hours later was to visit the southern city of Tarija to deliver tractors.
