José ‘Pepe’ Mujica urges people to take action against politicians before it’s too late.
NeonNettle| The former President of Uruguay José ‘Pepe’ Mujica, also known as the World’s Poorest President, has issued a stark warning to the public: “Remove the wealthy Elites from politics before it’s too late.”In an emotional message to citizens worldwide, he has urged people to wake up to the financially motivated corruption that is rotting democracy from the core.
Mujica was the Uruguayan President between 2010 and 2015 and was a former urban guerrilla fighter with the Tupamaros who was imprisoned for 13 years during the military dictatorship in the 1970s and 1980s.
Often referred to as the “world’s most humble president”, he retired from office in 2015 with an approval rating of 70 percent and had touched people globally with his selfless messages.
He famously donated 90 percent of his salary to charity which offered a strong contrast to politics in the United States, where the average member of Congress is worth more than $1 million and corporations are free to donate to political campaigns with many of the same rights as individuals.
