Well,even though an official release has not been made in that aspect,suggestions are that diverticulitis which he suffered from could have been a big reason for his death.It is also a known fact that he has been in poor health since 2008.“Diverticulosis is a condition that occurs when pouches (diverticula ) form in the wall of the colon. If these pouches get
inflamed or infected, it is called diverticulitis.”
There is a twist to his first marriage though.The first wife was said to have divorced him because he cheated.She then left him for one of his political rivals,Emilio Nuñez Blanco.
He had children with both his first wife and the second woman he was rumoured to have married.
He had a fondness for women and had many mistresses and children.He was almost assassinated by one of his mistresses in a CIA assassination plot.
