Duterte promises HK trip to female soldiers in Marawi. But what about the guys?
Female soldiers who have been deployed to Marawi City can look forward to an out of the country trip once the crisis is over.
President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday (September 11) promised to fly to Hong Kong the female soldiers assigned to Marawi City.
“Kayo, pagkatapos nito, maawa ang Allah, Hong Kong kayo lahat,” Duterte told female soldiers in a speech at the battleground command post in Marawi City.
Male soldiers, however, would have to rely on luck to go on a similar trip.
“Magpa-raffle ako, marami rin. Kung maka-tsamba ka, ipadala mo asawa mo pati anak mo,” Duterte said.
The President said all soldiers who win the trip to Hong Kong will have an allowance for their families.
Duterte has visited Marawi four times since the fighting started in May.
