The daughter of former president Jeanine Áñez, Carolina Ribera, affirmed that the governor of Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, in prison since last week, was part of the de facto government that her mother headed between 2019 and 2020 and requested many ministries.
“She had to put together a cabinet and she had to do it with the people who were there because without a cabinet you cannot govern,” Ribera said in an interview with a local media outlet.
“Luis Fernando Camacho was also part of the Government and asked for many ministries, many spaces and my mother always said from the beginning: this is a fight of the civics, of the citizens and I am going to do what is appropriate because this fight is theirs. Rivera said.
In 2019, Fernando Camacho, in his role as president of the Civic Committee for Santa Cruz, was one of the leaders of the protest that led to the resignation of then-President Evo Morales and the subsequent irregular assumption of Áñez.
Among his ministers were his former colleagues from the Social Democratic Movement (Democrats) in the Legislative Óscar Ortiz, Arturo Murillo, Rodrigo Guzmán, María Elva Pinkert and Víctor Hugo Zamora. While on behalf of the civic movement Jerjes Justiniano Atalá and Luis Fernando López.
Camacho together with Marco Antonio Pumari were the people who led the civic movement during the 2019 crisis that led to the coup against Evo Morales in the midst of an atmosphere of convulsion, after a police riot and the “suggestion” of resignation from the Armed forces.
“In her (de facto) government there were mistakes, there were people who acted in bad faith that she trusted, because she is a very decent and correct person and she trusted that people were going to act like her,” Ribera said.
Camacho, a former leader of the right-wing Civic Committees, was sent by Judge Sebastián Pacheco Diamantino for four months to the Chonchocoro prison, for the Coup d’état I case, referring to the departure of Evo Morales from the Government in the 2019 crisis .
Áñez is being held in the Miraflores prison for the so-called Coup d’état I and II case, in the latter she already has a 10-year sentence.
