Duterte reveals real reason why ‘hardworking’ mayors travel many times to Manila
Being a former mayor for more than two decades, President Rodrigo Duterte knows all the tricks of trade in running city hall, including their escapades.
In a speech before municipal mayors last March 15, Duterte revealed that mayors travel a lot and it’s not always for official business.
He said some “hardworking” mayors use their official travel as an excuse to visit their harem of girlfriends.
”Marami ‘yan dito eh. Magpakasal dalawa, tatlong beses. Noong barangay captain pa ang y***, isa lang, may girlfriend. Pagka mayor na, dalawa, tatlo tapos dalhin ‘yung isa sa Maynila, dito. Dito papatirahin. Kaya sige byahe dito kunwari,” said Duterte.
“Akala naman ng tao hardworking. Iyang mayor ninyo hardworking sa kama,” he added.
But Duterte was quick to say that he was only joking.
”Hindi, ano lang ‘yan ha, biro lang ‘yan, biro lang ‘yan. Kung ikaw ang tinamaan, [nirese ka?], Ngayon, ilan tayo? Marami tayo nagkaproblema ng ganoon. Ayan pa, may masabi ka pa sa akin,” he said.
