27 October 2011
Another of Dilma's ministers hits the dustbin.
Sports Minister Orlando Silva resigned after ongoing media allegations over massive corruption.
Silva is the 6th minister from president Dilma Rousseff's cabinet to resign...since June.
Dilma staunchly defended Silva...until the supreme court announced an investigation.
He was a holdover from Lula da Silva's administration...and alleged to have received $23mn in kickbacks for himself and his Communist Party...from contracts.
In office only 10 months, the disorder in Rousseff's cabinet raises more concerns about her ruling coalition...and Brasil's preparations for the showcase 2014 World Cup.
