That’s not health-related, it’s more of an emotional issue.

This was the response of Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque to observations that Duterte looked tired during his talk to troops in Zamboanga City last Friday.

“Matamlay talaga siya dahil talagang kusang malungkot. Doon ko lang nakita na napakalungkot ng ating Presidente. Para siyang ama na namatayan ng mga anak dahil nag away away,” Roque said during his virtual presser Monday.

Duterte, he added, was “emotional” over the death of the four soldiers at the hands of police in Sulu province last week.

“He took it very personal itong nangyari sa Jolo kaya nga nangako rin sya na bibigyan ng katarungan. Yan ang kanyang hiling sa lahat ng involved, sa ating kasundaluhan, sa ating mga kapulisan,” according to the Palace official.

“Hayaan muna natin mag imbestiga ang NBI, dahil siya mismo ang pinaka apektado, bukod sa mga pamilya na namatayan,” he concluded.
