By Prince Golez
Malacañang has dismissed the issue questioning President Rodrigo Duterte’s health, saying the chief executive rode his motorcycle around the Doña Luisa subdivision in Davao recently.
“It only shows na kung nakakamotor siya, in good health. Yan lang ang ibig sabihin nun,” Presidential Spokesperson told reporters on Monday.
Duterte has been absent from public eye over the past few days. His last public activity was attending the 118th police service anniversary in Camp Crame on August 9.
“In fact he shared to me yesterday, sabi nya, ‘Alam mo ba na I went out sa motorsiklo?’ Nag motorsiklo daw siya sa subdivision niya. Hindi ko na alam kung kahapon yun o the day before,” Panelo said.
“Kinukwento niya sa akin, pagkatapos, sabi niya, lumabas siya, pagkatapos parang ginanahan siya mag motor, lumabas siya ng subdivision. Eh di nataranta ang PSG. Pero after a while daw nakita na niya,” he added.
The Palace official said Duterte told him that people took pictures of him riding his motorcycle.
“Yun kinkuwento niya marami sa akin na kumuha ng picture. Sabi niya ang mga nakakita sa akin na nakamotor,” according to him.
