Di niya inutos! Duterte: I killed because I felt GMA wanted it
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte, known for cracking jokes to lighten the mood, said he killed someone because he felt that House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo agreed to it.
At the farewell dinner for Arroyo Tuesday evening, Duterte said he admires the former president’s “strong-willed leadership and decisive governance.”
“Bilib ako sa iyo, ma’am, kasi you might want to know that even when I was mayor and for the years that President Arroyo was there, I was really working for her,” according to the President.
“Of course, wala akong pinatay na tao na utos niya. Pinatay ko na lang kasi feeling ko gusto niya,” he said eliciting a laugh from the audience
Duterte, who once served as Arroyo’s anti-crime adviser, had been accused of running a death squad when he was mayor of Davao City.
