"Mama still doesn't know that Lech is dead. She has been in poor mental condition for a long time and has sometimes mistaken me for Lech, something which had never happened before. She is now fully lucid and in the coming days I should tell her the truth. Honestly, I am scared."
Since the news had been broken, Jaroslaw Kaczynski has not spoken publicly. His aide, Elzbieta Jakubiak said she didn't have any details because the family was spending time together in private.
A spokesperson for the late President's brother told ABC News, "Their mother took the news very badly, but not tragically. She is strong enough. A tough woman, a soldier in World War II. She understands she had sons who served the state. Today, she fully realizes she has only one son left who must continue in the wake of his brother, the late president. Even in her frail condition, from her hospital bed, she will surround her remaining son with the love and support he now needs to run for office."
