“Mr. Duterte is determined to stop corruption.” This is the assertion of Jay Sonza to begin his FB post.
Sonza remarked that even in his last stretch of his term, the President remains determined to stamp out corruption in the government.
“Sa kanyang huling taong panunungkulan, nanatiling marubdob ang naisin ng pangulo na wakasan ang katiwalian at nakawan sa pamahalaan.”
Sonza said that Sen. Go, a close friend of the President, also reported the steps being taken are proof of President Duterte’s determination.
“Ito ang binigyan diin ni Sen. Christopher Lawrence Go, malapit na kaibigan ni Mr. Duterte. Patunay dito ang mga ginawang hakbang sa nakalipas na limang taon, dagdag pa ni Sen. Go.”
According to Sonza, as per statement of Sen. Go, President Duterte remains determined to end corruption despite the challenges he encounters over the past 5 years. In addition, the President is pinning his hope that younger generations will enter government service and bring positive changes regarding government corruption.
“Sen. Bong Go said that President Rodrigo Duterte remains determined to eradicate corruption in the government amid challenges and difficulties faced over the past five years of his term. Go also mentioned that the President remains hopeful that new and younger generations, should they choose to enter public service, will make significant difference by helping fight corruption from within.”
Sonza revealed what is going on in the mind of President Duterte with regards to the people in government who are caught stealing from the government and what are his instruction.
“Halos bawat linggo may nasu-suspend, natatanggal at nakakasuhan. Sabi naman ng Pangulo, kapag mapatunayang nagnakaw ka, sibak ka! Kahit exasperated na si Pangulong Duterte, hindi pa rin siya nawawalan ng pag-asa. Patuloy pa rin ang kanyang pagtatrabaho hanggang sa huling araw ng kanyang termino,” Go said.

“It is the system that is rotten…at sagad na sa buto ng pinoy ang corruption…not unless you grab the scalpel ang do the necessary surgery on the table…” commented a netizen.
“Hindi lang sa gobyerno may corruption, pati mga private citizens dapat liable din. ABS nga nagagawa nila kung ano gusto nila gawin dahil sila mismo ang corruptor at protector ng mga politiko pero malaya sila at patuloy sa gawain ng corruption,” added another.
This netizen doubts corruption can be eradicated. “Sa totoo lang hindi mawawala ang corruption sa bansa kasi mula na sa pinakababa mayron kung baga ang roots ay nakakalat na at malayo na ang nagapangan”
“spell ‘determined’ kung wala namang ikinukulong.. malambot po yung sibak lang, hindi bagay sa kamay na bakal.. yung adik at pusher tinutumba, pero etong mga magnanakaw sa gobyerno, binibigyan ng graceful exit.. how unfair…” another doubting Thomases commented.
