Lula’s Depression

The Correio Braziliense of 27 July describes an obviously dejected Lula.

In a luncheon organized by Itamaray (Foreing Affairs Ministry)honoring visiting Botswana President, Festus Mogae, Lula looked “annoyed”, “had a lost look”, kept “a pensive air” and had “a very low tone of voice”. During his protocol speech: “Without raising his head, he hurried to finish and returned to his place, arousing discreet whispers.”

Lula is known for his high energy and charm. His party has been bombarded with corruption allegations during the last few months; allegations that are affecting both his behavior and popularity.
