Ex-Cebu governor blasts Digong.
He may be leading in some of the surveys in Cebu, but former Cebu governor Tingting dela Serna said if Davao City mayor Rodrigo Duterte means what he says, then his presidency would be a chaotic one. Dela Cerna based his statement on Duterte’s own words; specifically the statements he issued against the US and Australia, whose ambassadors criticized him for his “rape joke.”
My idea of a president is one who might not be able to do much for the country as much as we want but who will definitely not do anything to damage it more. Dili na nato tiwasan ug guba bah. We cannot get a perfect president…Pero ari lang ta sa presidente nga dili lang ta mosamot ka-empyerno. Vicente dela Serna.
