Suriname’s vice president plays a match at the age of 60

The Vice-President of Suriname played the first leg of the 16th round of the “CONCACAF” club league within the club Inter Mongotabo, which he heads and owns, against CD Olympia of Honduras in Paramaribo.
Vice-President, Guerrero Ronnie Brunswick, who wore a shirt with the number 61 on it, the year of his birth, and took the captain’s armband, played 54 minutes during his team’s brutal 1-6 home defeat to his Honduran counterpart.
The vice president participated in the offensive line, along with the number 10, Damien Brunswijk, one of his relatives, knowing that Brunswick regularly participated in his team’s matches.
The famous sports commentator, “Mr. Chip”, said on Twitter: “Rone Brunswick (Vice-President of Suriname and President of Inter Mongotabo) has become the oldest player (60 years and 198 days) to play an international club match.”
This former army sergeant and wealthy businessman led the rebellions against the policy of dictator Desi Bouterse in the 1980s.
He was sentenced in absentia for drug trafficking and sentenced to 8 years in prison in 1999 by the Dutch judicial authorities (the former colonial power), and was also sentenced to 10 years in prison by the French judicial authorities, without implementing these rulings because the law is not allowed to Suriname to extradite its nationals .
He was elected as a deputy in 2005, recently allying with the former Minister of Justice of Suriname and the head of the main political opposition organization, Chandrika Prasad Santoki, who was elected president by acclamation in July 2020 by Parliament for a five-year term, while Ronny Brunswijk was appointed as his deputy.
Brunswick will not risk traveling to participate in the second leg of the round of 16 of the “CONCACAF” tournament (North and Central America and the Caribbean) in Honduras due to his legal problems and fear of arrest.
