President Rodrigo Duterte has insisted that his darker complexion was a result of sunburn amid lingering questions about his health.

In a speech before the Filipino community in Israel Monday (September 3), Duterte denied Communist Party of the Philippines founder Jose Maria Sison’s claim that he is suffering from skin discoloration as a result of a lingering illness.

“Alam naman ng mga ano ‘yan. Hindi ako naggagamit ng… Eh pumupunta ako ng mga kampo sa military ang init niyan, maglakad ka pa,” he said.

Duterte said he doesn’t like applying sunscreen creams.

“Kaya nasusunog pero if I take a few days off mga one week after, two weeks, nawawala ‘yan,” he said.

Duterte also recently dispelled Sison’s allegation he was suffering from a kidney disease, showing his arms off to prove he hasn’t been undergoing dialysis.
