Joy Belmonte shares how Inday Sara worries about dad Sonny
Her concern was genuine.
Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte found yet another reason to idolize Presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
Belmonte recounts how Duterte was deeply worried about her dad Sonny Belmonte as they all stood under the sun’s heat during the Hugpong ng Pagbabago campaign rally in Quezon City.
“My father who was so excited for us to host the HNP rally joined us on stage under sweltering hot conditions. Mayor Sara whispered to me, ‘hindi dapat naiinitan si Speaker SB dahil may edad na siya. Ninenerbyos ako para sa kanya,'” she said.
Belmonte tried but failed to send his dad off the stage to a more chill spot, so the Davao mayor did the work for her.
“So Mayor Sara had to speak to him gently and tell him na sa lilim muna siya umupo. When he went down she told me ‘nag-alala lang talaga ako sa kanya.’ Thank you Mayor Sara for being a daughter not just to your father, PRD, but to mine as well,” she said.
