A caravan rolled into Havana on Thursday to commemorate Fidel Castro's arrival after the triumph of the revolution in 1959, EFE reported. See story.
"Fidel is biding his time (to make a statement) because he is a great prophet who waits for the right moment to say something," said Lt. Col. Hugo Perez Silva, who came to Havana 56 years ago with the revolutionary leader as is known as the "Caravan of Freedom".
The arrival of the delegation to the capital comes amid a new wave of rumors and speculations on social networks about the death of Fidel Castro, 88 and removed from power since 2006 by a disease.
His last public appearance was a year ago today when he attended the opening of an art studio of the painter Alexis Leyva "Kcho" in a neighborhood of Havana, while his last articles in the Cuban press last were published October.
