By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte clarified Sunday that there are no generals involved in illegals drugs trading.
During his arrival at the Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao City after his five-day official visit in Russia, Duterte said he was confused about the current ranking classifications of the police.
“Alam mo I must admit my ignorance actually. Iyong ranggo kasi nung nauso ‘yang sup-sup, superintendent tapos kung ano-anong… Kaya sa panahon ko sabi ko bumalik kayo doon sa police colonel, police major, police lieutenant, kasi pati lahat ng tao nalilito ‘yang sup-sup na ‘yan. Superintendent pala ‘yan eh. Eh sa Bisaya ‘yang sup-sup is sucking — ice drops,” according to him.
“Wala, walang generals. I’m sure of that. Sa aking report na dumating sa akin, wala. Parang — colonel I think. Nalilito kasi ako diyan sa superintendent-superintendent na ‘yan kasi ang alam ko lang superintendent ‘yung superintendent ng eskwelahan,” he added.
On Thursday, Duterte revealed that two generals are “still playing” with illegal drugs.
