Any takers? Duterte to sell Mercedes Benz he got as a gift
President Rodrigo Duterte has been given a Mercedes Benz as a gift, but he’s not interested in taking it for a ride.
Duterte on Sunday (March 12) announced that he’s willing to sell the luxury vehicle he received from a kind-hearted person (“nagmagandang-loob”) since he’s not into cars.
‘Ito nga totoo eh, nagbigay sa akin Mercedes-Benz, totoo ‘yon. Punta ka sa PSG, nandiyan sa compound. Until such time na. Pero nagmamagandang-loob, sabi ko okay,” he said.
“Hindi ko tinatanggap, lagay ko lang diyan. Interesado ang sinong taxpayer, bilin mo sa gobyerno, ipagbili ko. Mercedes-Benz,” Duterte added.
Duterte mentioned the Mercedes Benz he received after expressing his readiness to have his and his family’s records in the Bureau of Internal Revenue investigated to find out if they are paying the correct taxes.
