Saguisag thinks only a few people gained from Duterte’s 1st year in office. Find out who they are
Former Senator Rene Saguisag is not happy with the first 365 days of fellow San Beda alumnus President Rodrigo Duterte and he let it all out in a rant of a column at the Manila Times.
“Has Digong’s ascent from local mayor to the presidency, been good or bad karma for the nation? Aside from Honeylet Avanceña and his reported two kulasisis in Davao City, where his children are mayor and vice mayor (the Durants’ “paradise of pedigree”), and his alleged kalaguyo in Cagayan de Oro, his fellow Davaoeños and frat brods, how many of us can truly say “I am better off today than a year ago?” asked Saguisag in his July 7 diatribe.
“What used to be denied is now flaunted, very much in the open. Prez Digong does not deny, but even exhibits, if you know what I mean. Change has come, and I just may have to eat my heart out here,” he added.
Saguisag sounded off on how Duterte has not won any war whether it be against drugs or against China’s “creeping baseless spurious irredentism” which has reducedthe country’s territory or against the worse than ever “killer traffic” which appears to have not affected Duterte at all as he has said or done nothing about it.
“To be fair, Digong is entitled to his fair share of rookie errors or lapses. But, positive change must come, beginning with bettering and refining his limited vocabulary. Has his continued cussing given us a better life? His audiences may stop applauding. Kumita na po ‘yan,” said Saguisag.
