Buhay na naman ang red tape! Palace: Duterte exasperated by delays in Marawi rehab


By Prince Golez

Malacanang on Thursday admitted that President Rodrigo Duterte was “exasperated” by the snail-paced rehabilitation efforts in Marawi City.

“Yes, he was exasperated but then again, tapos na iyong red tape na iyon, eh mag-uumpisa na eh,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said during a press briefing.

Panelo said that Duterte has ordered the “full implementation of the rehabilitation” and that the groundbreaking for the reconstruction of the city’s most affected area will start “at the end of the month.”

The government initially set the groundbreaking ceremony in June and has already been delayed several times.

“Hopefully, dire-diretso na tayo,” Panelo said.
