Duterte says Sara dominates family with ‘alpha’ attitude: ‘Pag nagsalita siya tahimik ako
President Rodrigo Duterte may not have second thoughts speaking his mind, but he shuts up when his eldest daughter, Davao City mayor Sara Duterte, opens her mouth.
Duterte described Sara as the “alpha” member of their family in a speech before the Filipino community in Papua New Guinea Friday (November 16).
“Eh ‘yung bunso namin talagang takot sa kanya ‘yan pati ‘yung elder. Siya ‘yung naging alpha ng pamilya noong naghiwalay kami ng nanay nila,” he said, referring to Sebastian or Baste, the youngest of his three children with former wife Elizabeth Zimmerman, and Paolo, his eldest son.
Duterte again told the public to watch out for his daughter because her attitude is one of a kind.
“Ito namang Inday na ito, bantay kayo diyan sinabi ko. Iyong binugbog ‘yung sheriff. Ganun kamaldita ‘yan. Iyan ang ‘pag nagsalita, tahimik na lang ako,” he said.
Sara has sought to carve her own identity as a politiko by creating her own regional political party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago.
Duterte also confirmed recently that his daughter masterminded the ouster of Davao Del Norte Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez as House Speaker.
