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.
