Journalist and blogger Raissa Robles, an anti-Duterte and obviously an anti-Marcos, earned the ire of Mindanaoans in particular and the public in general by tweeting that incoming Tourism Secretary Frasco should prepare herself for ransom negotiations and worse, the ASG might even personally ask her to negotiate personally.
In other words, Robles is telling the incoming Marcos administration to forget promoting Mindanao for tourism to foreigners because the Abu Sayyafs and other terrorist groups would be so pleased of so many potential kidnap victims.
Retired broadcaster and journalist Jay Sonza, who calls Mindanao his home, wasted no time in calling out Raissa Robles whom he call the typical neighborhood Marites or gossip lady.
Why? Because Raissa Robles likes to write things that she hears from the rumor mills. The typical gossip girl pretending to a journalist, said Sonza.
Sonza wrote that Raissa Robles cannot claim expertise on Mindanao because in the first place, she is not a Mindanao resident or resided in this part of the Philippines but live in jungle of Metro Manila and yet she wants her reader to believe that Mindanao is a dangerous place for tourist to come and visit.
Sonza ended the FB post by telling netizens not to allow themselves to be deceived to the likes of Raissa Robles who present themselves as experts whose real expertise is to weave tales of lies.
You may now read Jay Sonza’s original FB post below.
RAISA ROBLES is your typical neighborhood Marites. Nagsusulat ng mga bagay bagay salig sa mga kuwento-kuwentong nasasagap. Iyong tipong chismosang nagkukunwaring journalist daw.
She is not a resident of Mindanao and has not resided in this part of the Philippines. She lives in the concrete jungle of Metro Manila But she wants her reader to believe that Mindanao is a dangerous place for tourist to come and visit.
Ang sabi niya ang Mindanao ay pugad ng mga terorista, kidnaper, mamamatay tao at iba pang masasamang loob. Malayo po ito sa katotohanan. Kami na naninirahan dito sa Mindanao ang patunay na kabalintunaan ang mga pinagsasabi ni Raisa Robles.
We live in peace. Maayos ang buhay namin, Sa nayon, sa bayan o siyudad man. Tahimik ang aming pamumuhay. masaya at panatag ang aming kalooban sa tuwina. Naglalakad kami, araw man o gabi sa parang o sa gitna ng lansangan na walang pangamba o pag-aalinlangan.
Katunayan, sa malaking bahagi ng Mindanao maari mong iwan ang iyong mobile phone o pitaka sa lamesa ng resto na hindi dadamputin ng sino man, maliban siguro kung madaan si Raisa at pag-interesan ito.
HUWAG PO TAYONG MAGPAPALANSI SA MGA KATULAD NI RAISA ROBLES NA NAGMAMARUNONG AT BISYO NA YATA ANG MAGLUBID NG MGA KASINUNGALINGAN.
