Duterte has fired a new set of officials because of graft allegations

President Rodrigo Duterte announced that there is a new set of government officials who were dismissed from their duties due to graft allegations.

This is part of his promise to get rid of all the people in the government who are proven to be doing corruption.

It can be recalled that before he flew to China for Boao Forum, he was asked who will be the next officials to be taken out of his cabinet.

That was the time the President sarcastically answered a reporter from Inquirer for making him hasty to reveal who will the next to be ousted of his cabinet, based on a previous article.

Now that the list was revealed, Duterte said that he is sad to inform the public that last week he fired another set of officials, based on the article published in The Philippine Star.

Though the Chief Executive did not disclose the names of the said officials but he said that they were among his longtime supporters.

“Eh nakakahiya. But you know as supporters, early on, even during my mayorship days, they were already around and yet they f*** around. Alam ninyo ang ayaw kong mahiya.” Duterte said.

Since he started his administration last June 2016, the President has already fired more than a dozen of high-ranking officials. The list included former interior secretary Mike Sueno and former National Irrigation Administration chief Peter Laviña.

He also said that those who showed intense encouragement to him to run as President when he was still the Davao City Mayor were the ones who committed graft and corruption after they were appointed.

On the other hand, his initial perception for all the people who supported him was wrong because eventually they did something which destroyed his trust.

“Ayaw ko kasi mawalaan ang aking kapwa tao. I don’t want to nurture something that I would be suspicious of anybody in front of me. Ayaw ko sana ‘yung mawalaan ako ng bilib sa kaibigan o kakilala. I hate it because I know you – they meant well,” the President said, based on the report.
