As it is known to many, the PCOO Assistant Secretary has her own “Mocha Uson Blog” in which she posts her opinions regarding various issues in politics and society.

In line with the case filed by Akbayan Youth to the Office of the Ombudsman against the Asec, Senior Deputy Executive Secretary Menardo Guevarra stated that the administration does not believe all the allegations being thrown to Uson, based on the article published in Bandera.

“Of course not,” Guevarra said regarding the said issue.

On the other hand, the Secretary admitted that he was not able to read all the write ups published in the blog of the PCOO Asec.


He added that his statement is based on what Uson said to him and he believes it.

“Well, I really don’t have—to tell you frankly hindi ko naman binabasa iyong lahat noong mga nasa blog ‘no. I don’t really have much time to go over all of this things but she has consistently denied it ‘no. So, I take her word for it, as a fellow worker I take her word for it,”

With all the fake news allegations against Asec. Mocha Uson, Guevarra believes that she will be able to defend herself.

“Well I’m sure Asec. Mocha will be able to defend herself. Mayroon namang mga processes to follow and to observe and she’ll be given her fair chance ‘no to be able to explain,” Guevarra stated, based on the article.
