The former governor of the state of Sucre, Luis Acuña Cedeño, died in Caracas on Sunday, August 27. He was being held in a private medical center in the Venezuelan capital, after suffering complications from a respiratory infection.
“Among the good guys, one of the best left for a light ride on the old wooden plane he had carved with his own hands. My dear brother and friend, we could not harvest the coffee fruits together, but we admired the mountains in full bloom of hope,” former Minister of Land Transport and Public Works Heyman Al-Trudy posted on his Twitter account (X).
According to Pete, Acuña was 77 years old and belonged to the ranks of the Unified Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).. Among his most recent positions were that of Minister Counselor at the Commission, and Chargé d’Affairs at the Venezuelan Embassy in Canada.
He also took charge of the Ministry of Higher Education from 2007 to 2010. He was a member of the National Assembly from 2005 to 2011. He was Research Coordinator at the University of the East (UDO), Nucleo Sucre, between 1987 and 1990, and its Dean between 1992 and 1994.
