(OPINION) The sentiments of many Nicaraguans was expressed on Twitter by Gioconda Belli: “Ortega has not given interviews in his country for eleven years, but now he is dedicated to washing his hands of his bad government and repression by giving interviews to journalists who barely know what is happening in the country and which is made to appear as the president victim of his people!”

Over the past week, Ortega has given interviews to Fox News, albeit it appears like a canned interview given the and Ortega were not in the same place; TelesurTV that is owned/sponsored by Nicaragua, Venezuela, Cub, Bolivia, and Uruguay; and CNN en español that will be aired Monday night.

For more than 100 days Nicaragua has been gripped by a political crisis that has left more almost 450 dead and thousands injured in clashes with police and paramilitary forces loyal to Ortega.

So how did this happen in a country once called the “safest in Central America”.
