Mother of a young woman who died in the Saratoga explosion demands answers from the Government

The mother of the Cuban Shady Cristina Cobas Mesaone of the 47 fatalities of the explosion at the Saratoga Hoteldemanded answers from the Government of what happened and attacked the mismanagement that the case has been made from the highest spheres.

“Hello. Here I am next to the car of the Mayor of Old Havana, Alexis [Acosta Silva]who got out of the car, passed me and went from there to there, and did not attend to me, ”said the woman at the beginning of a video that has gone viral on social networks in the last few hours.

“That It’s been a month and ten days since I lost my daughter because of the ‘bomb’ they put in the Saratoga and no one has come to my house to give me an explanation of what happened, of what it was, or to put a hand on my the shoulder as a citizen of this country that I am”, added the lady, visibly indignant.

The woman questioned the lack of education and the disinterest in serving her on the part of the authorities. “That I’ve been here since 7:30 in the morning of the car and he got out of the car at 9:00 and went to make a little video for the Materno.”

She then added that she went to the hospital to speak with Acosta Silva and that they told her that “it was not possible, because the video was something private and they had to wait for it to end.”

“She was working for this country and this government when they planted the bomb and she died. She was the last victim they took out of the Saratoga. I was in the park for six days. I want this country to give me an answer, since Díaz-Canel was the mother’s day in the Capitol dancing with the president of Mexico”, reproached the afflicted mother, who referred to the controversial cultural activity that on the weekend of the tragedy starred the highest Cuban ruler together with his official guest, the Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
