Davao City Mayor Rodrigo ‘Rody’ Duterte may not be the usual soft-spoken politician we know. In fact, many Dabawenyos (people from Davao) claim that he is not really a bad person after all. But what’s more interesting to know is that some Duterte stories reveal that he has helped not only Dabawenyos. Below are only 2 of My Duterte Story testimonials we found on social media.
As we all know, there were mixed reactions from netizens when Mayor Duterte cursed Pope Francis in his speech. Celebrity performers Kitchie Nadal and Gab Valenciano recently questioned Duterte for having a second wife and two girlfriends, while Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda and actor-action star Robin Padilla are both supporting Duterte for president in 2016.
Recently, a My Duterte Story Twitter account was created along with a Facebook page, and collects testimonials of people who had wonderful encounter with him. Using the hashtag #MyDuterteStory, many Dabawenyos praised the effectiveness of his leadership. In addition, two non-Davao City residents share their stories when Duterte immediately gave a helping hand.
