CARACAS - Venezuela's convalescing President Hugo Chavez said he would be home on Thursday for a thanksgiving ceremony at a religious shrine after checks in Cuba following cancer treatment.
"Tomorrow we will be in Venezuela! We will go and fulfil our vow to the Christ of La Grita! We will overcome!" Chavez said via Twitter, referring to a Catholic religious shrine in the west of the South American nation.
The 57-year-old socialist leader went to Cuba on the weekend, saying "final" checks would declare him cancer-free.
