Secret escapade? ‘Masked’ Duterte in Hong Kong with Honeylet, Kitty- report
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte has taken a quick break from running the country to spend time with his family in Hong Kong– and the media was clueless about it until Saturday night (October 6).
Journalist Ellen Tordesillas wrote that Duterte was spotted inside a Uniqlo store in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, with long-time partner Honeylet Avanceña and their daughter, Veronica or Kitty.
Posted on Tordesillas’ blog were photos of a man who looked like Duterte, and persons who resemble Avanceña and Kitty. They were accompanied by security escorts.
Interestingly, Duterte wore a face mask and cap inside the store, presumably so he won’t be recognized.
Malacañang never mentioned that Duterte will be in Hong Kong until photos of a man who looked like him were posted by Tordesillas.
It is unknown until when the President and his family will be out of the country.
Duterte’s overseas trip comes amid speculation about his health after he missed an event in Malacañang on October 3.
He later said he went to Cardinal Santos Medical Center for medical tests.
