Late President Hugo Chavez is being mourned by Venezuelans across the country, but nowhere more so than in his home town.
The Chavez family are akin to royalty in Sabaneta, a small town in the state of Barinas.
Hugo Chavez brother Adan is the state’s governor, and his other brother Anibal is a mayor.
Many residents in Sabaneta are disappointed that Chavez would not be buried in his hometown. The deceased had once said in an interview that he wanted to be buried there.
