President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday said he tried his “very best” to fight corruption in the government.

“I tried my very best to control corruption… Marami na akong Cabinet members, over the years, I think I fired six Cabinet members,” Duterte said during the inauguration of the new Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Sta. Cruz, Manila.

The President reminded public servants that they are paid to do work properly and efficiently.

“We are paid to see to it that the welfare of the people under whose care we are given to, you know, intindihin mo lang ang Pilipino, at ang response should really be kung ano lang ang tama,” according to him.

“Huwag sumobra, huwag magkulang. Just do what is right,” he added.
