A post by a local businessman giving credit to Robredo for facilitating the donation of Wilkins bottled water to quake victims has put Robredo in a bind.
Coca-Cola already issued a statement regarding the issue. Check the embedded post from Coca-cola’s page.
But Jake Miranda, the guy named by social media as Leni’ worshipper deleted his post just today after it has gone viral and stirred a controversy and dragging the Leni Robredo’s name with it.
If you check the post here, he insisted Robredo really made the Wilkins bottled water donation possible. Check the post here.
SO FOR THE IGNORANT. I am an active local citizen, volunteer, etc. VP staff called me early on Saturday morning asking for need, and I relayed ‘drinking water.’ VP sought assistance of Coca Cola Foundation, and a truck of water was immediately dispatched from a nearby city and arrived same day Saturday night. No fanfare. It was the first donation to arrive so I checked source and learned VP facilitated. Tell me, would Coca-Cola Foundation be quick to deliver water without someone directing? City promptly distributed 330 cases and 90 cases left is earmarked for one whole barangay. SO THERE.
Check screengrab below.
But wait! Let’s take a look at the screengrab from the conversation between a Robredo follower and the HR Executive of Coca-cola to once and for all clear the credit-grabbing issue.
The Wilkins bottled water credit-grabbing fiasco has incensed Atty. Rivera and give Robredo and whoever started the brouhaha a good tongue lashing that would give him or her a nightmare even with eyes wide awake. Lol
DO THE JOB BEFORE TAKING CREDIT
I do not understand why people take credit for something they have not done. Coca-Cola gave the water as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility. It does not need any politicians directive. And assuming for arguments sake that the OVP did call them, it would still be improper to claim credit.
If you want to make the Vice-President look good, she has to work for it. VP Binay went to two different locations in a day just so he can be seen and be able to help. People accused him of using disasters to make his presence felt but at least, he did the work so he can claim credit. Some people called him “trapo” because he was on the site, gave relief to the victims and claimed credit.
The Vice President should realize that people are not stupid. We can smell a PR stunt from a mile. But a PR stunt without the actual deed is something even I cannot just let go. Trickery, deceit, slanted truths, exaggerated achievements and cover-up have become the hallmarks of your political party. The one you wish to lead. The one you declared shall rise again.
The least you can do now is just be “trapo”. If you want to take credit, then do the work. Anything less than that is betrayal of our trust.
