(Scroll down for video) A woman threw a mango at the president of Venezuela.
However, rather than being arrested, the woman received a fully paid house.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro agreed to give the woman a home after asking for a home by hitting him in the head with the mango.
Marleny Olivo threw the fruit at the president as he drove a bus through Aragua. The mango had a message on it, in which the woman pleaded for his help.
President Maduro picked up the mango and showed it to the crowd. It had the woman’s telephone number and she asked for the president to be in touch with her.
Olivo wanted to bring attention to the “Great Housing Mission of Venezuela,” which is looking for more affordable housing for families.
When Olivo threw the mango, the president lowered his head, but he was hit just above the left ear. He then calmly picked it up and showed it to the crowd.
Later, the president discussed the incident in one of his television broadcasts in which he explained that the woman is having a housing crises.
He then told the woman that she will be getting her new home within the next few hours.
The president is a former bus driver and likes to connect with the citizens by touring local communities while driving a nice bus.
