This country leader warned government brass that “unexplained wealth means unexplained death”.
“I assure you pag sinumbong mo na sa akin iyan I guarantee you, tawagin ko iyan sa harap mo at sabihin ko talaga, mag-hingi ka uli p*tang ina mo, papatayin kita (I assure you if you report him to me I guarantee you I am going to hail him before you and will tell him son of a bitch I am going to kill him),” Philippines President Rodrigo R. Duterte warned them at the recently held Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Incorporated (FCCCI) meeting in Manila.
It is high time for the citizens to inform the media or call the government’s Anti-Corruption Hot Line 888 and report callous faces public officials and their kin who stashed government funds and flaunt some of them at social media Face Book.
I saw some government officials and family members who shamelessly posted at Face Book their palatial mansions, sports utility vehicles, yacht, and other properties that are beyond the means of the salaries of the concerned brass.
One of the parents in an exclusive school in Manila told me how scandalized she was seeing this government executive embellished her body with expensive jewelries like those huge diamond earrings and million pesos’ Rolex watch in a Parents Teachers Association meeting while her chauffeur waited outside with her new flashy car.
