Duterte doesn’t mind ending up in jail: May pagkain na, may taga-gising pa!
President Rodrigo Duterte welcomes the prospect of going to jail over the administration’s war on drugs.
In a speech in Zamboanga City Sunday (March 3), Duterte said he is unfazed by the International Criminal Court’s preliminary investigation on him in connection with the death of drug suspects under his administration.
“Eh ano kung makulong ako, ‘di kulong. May pagkain man doon tsaka matanda na ako,” he said during PDP-Laban’s campaign sortie.
“So ‘pag 78,79,80, mabaho ka na. ‘Di doon ka na lang sa presuhan May taga-gising pa, ‘Hoy, sige na.’ Anywhere tha I would fit, the least disturbance that I create, would be good for me,” he said.
Without admitting to any wrongdoing in connection to the drug war, Duterte said a president must know how to kill.
“Alam mo sa totoo lang, kung gusto mong mag-presidente ka ng Pilipinas, kailangan marunong kang pumatay. ‘Pag hindi ka pumatay umalis ka diyan, ikaw ang papatayin diyan,” he said.
Duterte has warned that the last three years of his term would be the most dangerous for drug addicts and pushers.
