The leader of the Sinaloa Cartel "El Mayo" Zambada is back with narco blankets in Jalisco and Sonora
After several blankets and messages signed by the 'Zambada May' appeared in various states of the Mexican Republic, where it is stated that, "the old school has arrived", indicating that they will make "a cleaning", the same message appeared in Cancún, precisely in Cumbres.
Only 10 days have passed since a jury convicted Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera, ex-leader of the Sinaloa cartel, of 10 criminal charges, including distribution of drugs and conspiracy to commit murders, in the United States.
"El Chapo" is now waiting for Judge Brian M. Cogan to issue a sentence on June 25, in what is expected to be a life sentence, while Sinaloa's lawyers continue to work with the media to try the judgment is annulled.
Throughout the more than two months that the process lasted the defence of "El Chapo" tried by all means to believe that Guzmán Loera had a secondary role in the Sinaloa cartel and that the real leader was Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada
The last time we heard about "El Mayo" Zambada was in April 2010, when journalist Julio Scherer interviewed him.
In these days, several theories about what will happen inside the Sinaloa cartel have been published. Some believe that without the intervention of "El Mayo" the organization will end up dividing since they also do not see a clear leadership in the children of "El Chapo".
At least five narcomantas were hung in different points of the city with a warning message to the criminal groups and signed presumably by Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, member of the Sinaloa cartel.
The spaces that the Sinaloa cartel has freed given the confrontation between its leaders were occupied by the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel, led by Nemesio "El Mencho" Oseguera, a former ally of "El Chapo". Both criminal organizations maintain a war in several points of the country in search of the control of squares and routes of transfer.
Narcomantas in Jalisco, land of the CJNG
At least five narcomantas signed by Ismael 'El Mayo' Zambada have appeared in different parts of the state of Jalisco.
According to the report of the weekly Proceso, the appearance of narcomantas signed by the disappeared member of the Sinaloa Cartel has increased in recent days.
The supposed narcomantas of 'El Mayo' are white canvases with red and black letters in which all the cartels are invited to negotiate with Zambada, since they will "clean up" the country, presumably with the help of the federal government.
Start cleaning in the country we come with all the support of the federal government Return the old school welcome to dialogue all the posters or align or align them. Atte: Mayo Zambada "(sic), is read in the narcomantas.
The messages appeared in the New Tonalá Truck Station; one on a pedestrian bridge on the free highway to Zapotlanejo, at the height of Las Torres, and another one in Patria and Las Torres.
Likewise, two more narcomantas were placed in a store located on Avenida Niños Héroes, in Tlaquepaque, and González Gallo and Niños Héroes in the Álamo Industrial.
"El Mayo" Zambada appears on the list of the 10 most wanted fugitives by the DEA (Administration for the Control of Drugs in the United States), which offers a reward of 5 million dollars to the person who gives information that leads to his capture.
According to the US authorities, "El Mayo" would be in charge of the operations of the Sinaloa cartel, which also operates in part of the Pacific coast of Mexico, in Cancún, Quintana Roo, and Monterrey, Nuevo León.
The DEA accuses Zambada of money laundering, possession of firearms, violent crimes, drug trafficking, among other crimes.
It is stated that "El Mayo" lives hidden in the Golden Triangle with a low profile, and that he is ill with diabetes. He is currently 71 years old.
