It’s Always the Weakest Link in the Chain that Breaks / Juan Juan Almeida
Posted on March 17, 2014

According to the newspaper Granma, five directors of state-owned chains
of shops have been suspended from their posts, and five others have been
disciplined because of illegalities in the sale of cooking tools to
customers and distorting the credit policy implemented by the Cuban
government.

The disciplinary measures implemented by the Minister of Internal
Commerce, Mary Blanca Ortega Barredo, were applied to executives of the
CIMEX corporation, the TRD Caribe chain and the Union of Business and
Cookery of Havana. Up to that point, everything’s fine. But I would like
to know who punished the person behind the ridiculous national
energising campaign, which obliged many Cubans to buy Chinese
refrigerators which don’t refrigerate, electric saucepans which don’t
cook, and hotplates which never worked. These people are now up to their
eyes in . That is what, in Cuba, and in , is called getting
swindled.
