Duterte chides Dick for plastering face on PRC ambulances: ‘Akala mo naman guwapo’
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte once again accused reelectionist Senator Dick Gordon of using the Philippine Red Cross to his advantage.
Gordon is the chairman and chief executive officer of the PRC, a humanitarian organization that provides social welfare services during emergencies and disasters.
“Kita mo kawalang-hiya ‘yung panel ng mga sasakyan ng Red Cross nilagay niya ‘yung mukha niya. Akala mo naman guwapo,” Duterte said during a speech delivered in Cainta Rizal Tuesday.
The President said the PRC s is supposed to help communities recover from emergencies and people in need of blood, not decorate its vehicles with images of his face.
“Iyang Red Cross para ‘yan sa emergency, sa dugo, hindi ‘yan ginagamit para iplastar mo ‘yung mukha mo doon,” according to him.
Prior to this, Duterte criticized Gordon for allegedly stealing P86 million in public funds when he was chairman of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.
Gordon chairs the Senate panel that investigated the alleged anomalies surrounding the government’s contract with Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corp. for Covid-19 supplies.
