Sikretong malupit! Alejano claims Cimatu’s trip to Israel related to Duterte’s health


Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu has an ulterior motive in flying to Israel ahead of President Rodrigo Duterte’s visit next month, Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano said Saturday (August 25).

Citing sources, Alejano said Cimatu’s trip is related to Duterte’s health.

“Ayun sa aking bubuwit, itong trip na ito ay hindi patungkol sa OFW kung hindi patungkol sa kalusugan ng pangulo,” the lawmaker said in a tweet.

Alejano’s post was linked to a news article about Cimatu’s purpose for flying to Israel.

According to the Philippine News Agency, the former Armed Forces chief of staff was ordered to check on the situatioj of Filipino migrant workers in Israel before Duterte flies there on September 2.

Concerns about the President’s health surfaced anew after Communist Party of the Philippines founder Jose Maria Sison claimed he had fallen into a coma.

Duterte has disputed Sison’s claim through public appearances and speaking in a Facebook live video.
