President Rodrigo Duterte named Senator De Lima’s name when he was interviewed by Susan Enriquez from GMA 7 on Wednesday at the NAIA press briefing.
You libeled me, you slandered me. I kept quiet because YOU ARE A LADY. Sumobra ka na,’ says President Rodrigo Duterte, referring to Senator Leila de Lima
Speaking at Camp Crame, Duterte exposed the female senator’s affair with her driver who supposedly had links with the druglords at the New Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa.
“Here is a senator complaining when one day I will tell you on how her driver himself who was her lover was the one collecting money for her during the campaign,” Duterte said.
Although he did not name the senator, Duterte called the lawmaker as “an immoral wowan.” The woman he is alluding to is Sen. Leila de Lima.
” As far as the wife of the driver is concerned, its adultery—here is a woman who funded the house of her lover,” Duterte said.
