Peru quiz of the day

Via @ensustrece , the required reading twitter account for Peru run by César Hildebrandt.
Who recently said, “An indigenous person who has a cellphone isn’t an indigenous person”?
Answer: Nadine Heredia, first lady of Perú, power behind the throne and widely regarded as being the person really running the show behind the trophy husband. What’s more said said it while in the process of personally firing a Vice-Minister of Culture because said person had the temerity to do her job and defend the rights of indigenous people against the petroleum industry’s designs on the much-coveted Lot 88 project in the Peruvian jungle. And she did the firing even though the First Lady has no official political power at all in Peru.
Tell me again about this left-wing government you guys up North were all trembling about  in 2011?
