Alleged white house “mansion” of de Lima’s driver surface online, netizens react!

While the nation sleeps, a photo of the alleged white house ‘mansion’ owned by Senator de Lima’s driver surface online has gone viral.

The photo has been published by the Philippine Daily Inquirer at around midnight, leaving the netizens who were still awake agape!

In a country where family drivers earned less than the average minimum wage or at best equal that of the minimum wage, it would be unthinkable for anyone earning a driver’s wage to build a house that grand, in ordinary Filipinos standard.

What makes the revelation more shocking is that the Mr. Ronnie Palisoc Dayan owns another bungalow house nearby. Neighbors said it took some time to build and eventually completed last march this year.

Neighbors told the PDI that Mr. Dayan and his family used to live with his parents’ small house in the village.

But things change when his wife and children relocated to another province while Mr. Dayan moved to the white house where he and De Lima were often spotted, a resident who refused to be identified told the PDI reporter.

The lady senator is a visitor of the village said the neighbors. The last time the good senator visited was last December where she generously distributed 50 pesos to innocent children and 100 pesos each to the adults. The PDI report said, she did not go out of the house to distribute the Christmas gifts, but the people seek her out at the white house.

The senator and the driver are often seen visiting the hometown of the driver. They would drop by at the public market to buy fresh vegetables and fish, the residents told PDI.

Senior Supt. Ronald Lee, provincial police director claimed during a forum with the local press in Lingayen on Thursday, “It’s an open knowledge in the village who financed the building of that house.”

The post has been eliciting mixed reactions on social media that ranges from the hilarious to a high degree of consternation!

Driver ang papa ko pero bakit wala kaming ganyang mala mansion na bahay?? Ang sagot? Kasi nag tatrabaho ang papa ko ng marangal, wala kaming koneksyon sa mga drug lords at lalong hindi sya naninilbihan kay de lima. Yung mga baho nyo ngayon kasama ng mga amo mo de lima nag lalabasan na sana hanggang huli mag kakakampi pa dn kayo baka malamang nyan pag nag kabukingan na talaga laglagan nakayo. Aabangan ng taong bayan yan. We support president duterte for his action against you madame de lima
