Ronnie Brunsjwik, Vice President of Suriname: Football player at 60, Banks Thief, Guerrilla and Narco

The Mexican journalist Marco Cancino did not give a credit to the footballer whose movements were to narrate at the Concacaf League Party, something like the UEFA of Central America, between Honduran Olimpia and the Interina Moengotapoe of Suriname of this Tuesday: "History is the owner by Ronnie Brunswijk, 60 years old! Vice President of Suriname, has been rebel, bank thief, politician, businessman and has 50 children! " (sic). Although the match will end 6-0 and the Inter, maybe, it needs to renew the staff, the athlete got a milestone: to be the most veteran player in playing an official match. After the meeting, he distributed banknotes in the dressing room of the enthusiastic Honduran team.

Cancino accompanied the tuit with a video where the sexagenary player settled a few pockets in the center of the countryside, followed by a lazy stretch: a slight shake of legs. But what he affirmed was true, rigorously true. Last year Brunswijk became the first cimarron vice-president - Slawsence-Slaws- de Suriname, a small country of half a million people, before Dutch Colony. Al CV must also add elite parachutist and drug trafficker. The only man capable of drawing Limónov.

The New York Times interviewed him in January of this year. "Everything I have, I give it to people," he told the New York newspaper, who illustrated the report with a photo in his office, the image of a huge man who hardly fell into him. The story of him begins with a stroke of luck. Born in a family of poor farmers, he was the only one elected by a Catholic priest from among the 10 brothers of him to enter an orphanage: the first time he saw electricity and the beginning of a galvanic personality.

In 1980, with 19 years, he arrives at Paramaribo. The intention of continuing the studies of him mutated soon and he enlisted in an incipient national army created by the caudillo desired botchers. The physical nature of him led him to be a parachutist and Cuba, where he was trained in the castren discipline. Carved physical and acquired war skills, bullshit it chose him as a personal bodyguard, creating a close relationship that deteriorated when the dictator began to kill opponents.

In 1984, the most cinematographic part begins, an impossible script by Sacha Baron Cohen. Brunswijk premiered in the attack of banks for, according to him, to distribute the booty among the poor. That Robin Hood was the nickname that was faraged seems foreseeable. But before the police caught him and the streets were soapped with his face, he fled to the Netherlands, where design a guerrilla with which to return safely to his country in 1986. The militia, Jungle Commando, composed of 1,200 men, generated a Civil war that lasted six years and an estimated balance of 500 dead. According to the diary cited, "the war ended in a democracy in which He controls the main springs." He did not finance it with a crowdfounding, of course, but through cocaine drug trafficking. Hence the convictions that on him weigh in Dutch and French courts, in addition to an order of search and capture of Interpol. He denies the facts and ensures that the money came from the wood and gold trade.

Stabilized, he bought an island on the Maroni River and began his political activity and football, reaching the presidency of the team with which he played on Tuesday. His mother now enjoys the 50 grandchildren of him, although she can not identify them accurately. The enormous amount of Prole, which would have served to make the repopulations of Carlos III, is such that Ronnie's mother hugs any child who approaches him.

The president of the country, Chan Santokhi, is a former policeman who pursued him in the eighties, he declared the New York Times that "we could analyze his story and see her as a barrier"; But they expect "a better future because we are two leaders who have been entrusted with the leadership of this nation."
