Mexico’s chief warlock said the fact that six former or current presidents have or have had cancer shows that Latin America was the victim of “evil eye” and prophesied that two more leaders would get the disease.
Antonio Vazquez, who has a wide following in Mexico and is considered an authority on “white magic,” predicted Tuesday that the new cases would occur in South America, but he did not identify the leaders.
Latin American leaders should “do a ‘cleansing’ to rid themselves of evil eye,” Vazquez said.
Argentine President Cristina Fernandez is undergoing surgery on Wednesday to remove a tumor found on her thyroid gland last month.
Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff and former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva have suffered from cancer.
Lula, however, was diagnosed with cancer after leaving office and Rousseff was successfully treated for lymphoma before taking office.
Former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe has precancerous keratosis, the first stage in the development of skin cancer.
Fernandez will be “completely” cured, but she “will have a tough year because Argentina will not have growth like in the past,” Vazquez said.
Chavez “has not been cured of the disease, but he has not been cured of arrogance either,” the warlock said.
“Power is strong and he is going to keep fighting, but I don’t believe he will go ahead with the 2012 elections because he is going to have a relapse in the end,” Vazquez said.
Mexico will have “much prosperity, money and lots of jobs” in 2012, and women will stand out in the political, economic and social arenas, but not enough to win the presidency on July 1, the warlock said.
The cards revealed that Enrique Peña Nieto, the candidate of the opposition Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, will be Mexico’s next president, Vazquez said, agreeing with most public opinion polls.
