While the socialist dictator visited the Giza pyramid complex, Venezuelans, who can only dream of engaging in tourism of that kind, continue to face the consequences of Bolivarian Socialism in the country.
Maduro, for whom the U.S. State Department has an active $15 million bounty out for information leading to his arrest and/or conviction, has used the COP27 climate conference to reap international legitimacy and rebuild diplomatic relations after much of the free world condemned him for clinging to power through sham presidential elections in 2018.
The socialist dictator’s weekend visit to the Giza pyramids was highlighted by Egypt’s State Information Service, noting that Maduro, his family, and entourage had visited landmarks such as the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx before moving onto the Egyptian Museum of Tahrir and especially the collection of King Tutankhamun, where they were “very interested” in taking souvenir photos with the Golden Mask of the Egyptian pharaoh.
The socialist dictator published a video of his visit to the pyramids on Wednesday through his account on the Chinese social media platform TikTok. In the video, Maduro is seen interacting and taking pictures with several tourists of different countries.
Somos bendecidos de contar con el cariño sincero de hermanos y hermanas del mundo. ¡Gracias a #Egipto por regalarnos esta experiencia tan maravillosa!
“We are blessed to have the sincere affection of brothers and sisters around the world. Thanks to Egypt for giving us such a wonderful experience!” the text that accompanied the video read.

Venezuela woman Olga Lucila Mata de Gil has found herself in trouble with the law after her TikTok video mocking the country’s government led to her arrest for terrorist-related crime.
In the now-deleted video, which only lasted 21 seconds, a woman asks Mata de Gil what arepas are available, Mata de Gil responds by naming the arepas after Venezuelan politics, in a joke that highlighted the frustration citizens feel with the increasingly authoritarian government.
