Take physic, pomp

Peru run by corrupt politicos? Nah surely not!

César and Yary: cheats do prosper

IKN has a memory and that memory stretches back to April of 2009 this morning to remind people of this post. In it, we get to hear how a Lima woman managed to buy a large swathe of prime real estate in the trendiest beach resort in Peru for the price of two US cents per square metre. The woman, Yary Valencia, paid $10,000 or so for land that’s, quite literally, worth millions.

So why drag this one back today? Well, that’s because her husband César Zumaeta is on all accounts about to be installed as the new head of Peru’s Congress! A guy knee-deep in illegal land deals doesn’t get kicked out of power in Peru, he gets rewarded. You can’t make this shit up, ah promizzez yaz.
