With dark skin and unstable walk, Duterte in a coma – Joma Sison


Communist leader Jose Maria Sison is alleging that President Duterte is enduring a health crisis.

Sison, in a Facebook post, said Duterte has reportedly “gone into coma” since Sunday. He said guests who attended the San Beda Law fraternity Lex Talionis event last Saturday night in Davao noticed the President’s darker skin and unstable walk and handshake.

“The latest report (still to be verified or negated) is that Duterte has gone into coma since the afternoon or evening of today, Sunday, August 19. The report is still being verified by the press from the palace,” he said.

He said the public expects the President’s next public appearance and a medical bulletin from his office.

Malacañang has rejected Sison’s allegation as wishful thinking, saying the President is healthy.

“Contrary to what Joma Sison said, the President is fine and well in Davao participating in Kadayawan. He will have a public appearance tomorrow with the League of Cities in Cebu City,” Presidentil Spokesperson Harry Roque said at a Malacañang news conference.

“As usual Joma Sison does not know what he talks about. How would he know about the state of the President—state of health of the President when he is in faraway of The Hague, Netherlands, not the Hague but I think another city in the Netherlands,” he said.
