Feeling his age! Duterte complains about rheumatism, arthritis after signing tons of documents


President Rodrigo Duterte is already feeling every year of his 73 years and he has three more years to go as President.

In a speech in Malacanang, Duterte admitted feeling exhausted doing his daily chores, specifically poring through piles of paperwork.

“I’m tired, I’m late because I’m — akala ko kasi uwi na ako ng Davao. So I was upbeat the whole day and I tried to finish all so that I go home without any baggage for the things that I have left behind to do,” said Duterte who regularly flies to Davao City for the weekend.

“I do some signing almost a minimum of 700 signatures a day. Nasira na ang kamay ko tuloy. Nagkaroon ng rayuma, arthritis,” he added.
