A newspaper in Buenos Aires has just revealed that one of Ernesto Che Guevara’s daughters, Celia, has recently sought (and been granted) Argentinean citizenship.
Ms Guevara, who was born in Cuba 44 years ago, is a veterinarian at Havana’s Aquarium, has two sons and lives in a VIP zone in the capital that is reserved for foreign diplomats and the most senior Communist Party officials. As you would expect.
Described by the newspaper Clarin as la mas castrista of all the Guevara offsprings, she applied for citizenship in January - funnily enough, just five months after Fidel Castro came close to death.
But please, don’t think for a minute that Ms Guevara, who describes Castro as her surrogate father, is thinking of departing the land of her birth for good.
Not at all.
It seems she has told friends that she has no intention of leaving Cuba but the Argentinean passport will make it much, much easier for her own sons to travel overseas at will.
Unlike ordinary Cubans, of course.
