Whether or not spoken in jest, President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday ordered rebel returnees to kill greedy businessmen in the country.
In a speech during the ceremonial distribution of benefits to former rebels in Leyte, Duterte called them “ulol” (insane) and “tulisan” (thief).

The Chief Executive also lashed out at Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala and Manny Pangilinan for the onerous water concession deals with Maynilad and Manila Water.

Just like Ayala and Pangilinan who own Globe and Smart. They are all thieves, those sons of b******. That’s the whole truth,” he added.
