House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano is in hot water over the problems plaguing the country’s hosting of the Southeast Asia Games.

Many netizens have scored Cayetano, head of the organizing committee for the SEA Games, for the latest logistics problems suffered by visiting athletes while others demanded his resignation over alleged poor handling.

Twitter was abuzz with negative sentiments against Cayetano following social media posts about the poor transport and hotel accommodations for the athletes. The organizing committee has apologized for the incident and vowed to do better.

“Alan Peter Cayetano Remember the name. This guy was given 6 BILLION PESOS to host #SEAGames2019 and all we have so far are substandard athlete provisions, unfinished/untested sports facilities, chaotic arrangements, and a mint-new 50 million cauldron. Nakakahiya!,” @MissEverywhere_ tweeted.

@LarryDomingo15 commented: “Calling the resignation of the corrupt #SEAGames2019 head Alan Peter Cayetano & the Philippine Sports Officials! Massive corruption, lack of accomodation & transportation to foreign athletes. You are destroying the reputation of the Filipinos. What a mess!!! #CayetanoResign.”

“Reports are coming in about unfinished venues, poor services for athletes, and corruption on the #SEAGames2019. We loaned 11B for this hosting to push thru, yet the main organizers (Cayetano) poorly prepared everything & even had the gall to justify their lavish spending. Shame!,” @seanthakur said.

“Southeast Asia is football crazy. If you don’t treat their football teams well, you’re inviting an international scandal. To put it simply, the PHL is ill prepared for the SEA Games. In the words of Alan Peter Cayetano, “all talk”. Puro ingay. Wala namang kwenta ang ginagawa,” @Buchukoy24 tweeted.
