Duterte’s close ally goes MIA to hide secret addiction
Someone close (SC) to President Rodrigo Duterte has been skipping encounters with him to avoid exposing his dirty little secret: an addiction to illegal drugs.
SC has only been recently hooked on drugs to cope with his various problems, including an issue that concerns his career.
While other addicts get high on marijuana or Ecstacy, SC’s drug of choice is cocaine. He can very well afford to buy it since his family is wealthy anyway.
With cocaine’s help, SC has been able to put on a brave face whenever he’s seen by the public. It’s uncertain, however, how long he will be able to keep his secret from Duterte.
