President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that he would fire another government official for corruption.

In a speech at the Clark airbase in Pampanga Wednesday, Duterte said: ‎”I am about to fire somebody from here. If it is proven that… Kung humingi siya ng pera, may opisyal dito na tatanggalin ko. In a few days, I’ll fire him.”

Last April 2, Duterte axed Interior Secretary Mike Sueno in the middle of a Cabinet meeting for allegedly buying overpriced Austrian firetrucks.

Duterte said he has very low tolerance for corruption and he would hesitate to remove them from office ‎even if they were his campaign supporter or career officials.

“Kaya hindi tayo umaasenso, kasi puro magnanakaw ang nandiyan sa gobyerno halos. Lalo na diyan sa baba, kayong mga director, I will not hesitate to fire you, even if you have been there for the last 25 years,” he said.

‎”Huwag ninyong gawain talaga sa panahon ko, uupakan ko kayo. Baka ‘yan pang baril ibaril ko sa inyo. Mga yawa kayo,” he added.
