Frozen delight: Cabinet official loses favor with Duterte
From being one of President Rodrigo Duterte’s most trusted men, Cabinet Official (CO) has become someone he and other top officials just seem happy to ignore.
While Duterte’s staff is diligent in informing other Cabinet executives of upcoming meetings, CO was the last to know about the details.
CO is also finding it increasingly difficult to access the President, when before he’s one of the select few who can have a word with Duterte anytime.
Word has it that the President is just waiting for CO to quit– perhaps out of frustration over his “frozen delight” status–since Duterte has become cool to working with him.
While the cause for the falling out between Duterte and CO is uncertain, it’s a sad development for two men whose ties go a long, long way back.
