‘Ambisyosong ahas!’ Francis Zamora claims receiving death threats for challenging Estradas
San Juan City Vice Mayor Francis Zamora has reportedly received a death threat over his plan to challenge Mayor Guia Gomez’s reelection bid in the 2016 elections.
In an interview with Radyo Inquirer, Zamora showed a text message sent to him recently warning him to tone down on his statement against the Ejercito-Estrada clan.
Gomez is the mother of Senator JV Ejercito.
The text message supposedly read: “Hoy Francis napaka-ambisyoso mo talagang ___________ ahas ka! Kung umsta ka parang Mayor ka na… Alalahanin mo Estrada pa rin ang may hawak ng San Juan. Ayusin mo kilos at pananalita mo lalo na sa mga Estrada bago pa maubos ang pasensya ko at may mangyaring masama sayo.”
While Zamora didn’t name the Ejercito-Estradas as the one behind the threat, he recalled Gomez’s statement blasting him as a “traitor” for challenging her candidacy despite their earlier agreement that he won’t run for mayor until after she finished her third and final term.
However, Zamora said he decided to run because of the Ejercito-Estradas supposed plan to turn back on their agreement by grooming Janella Estrada, Senator Jinggoy Estrada’s daughter, to take over Gomez’s place when she can no longer run for reelection.
Recalling Gomez’s hurtful statement, Zamora said: “Nasaktan kami ng aking ama, we I felt betrayed, sinuportahan namin si Mayor Guia sa mahabang panahon.”
