Leni And Sara: The Gloves Are Off, And We Score The First Punch!

DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao City Bureau) – The gloves are off, and we are witness to the first punch Vice President Leni Robredo receives from Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

Robredo stuck her stinky finger into the internal affairs of Davao by suggesting that Sara’s city can learn a thing or two from the way Cebu City has been handling the Covid-19 pandemic. Never mind that Camarines Sur has been flagged by Octa Research because of the surge of Covid cases in Robredo’s home province.

Sara responded with gusto!

The Adobo Chronicles has scored this salvo 5-0, in favor of Sara,

For one, Sara’s response was written in perfect English, very clear, concise and direct to the point, unlike Robredo’s characteristic repetitive, vague, and oftentimes empty comments and statements.

We can’t wait for the second, third punch!

1Sambayan Fined A Hefty Fee By National Historical Commission!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The National Historical Commission has imposed a heavy fine on 1Sambayan for violation of Republic Act 8491.

RA 8491 lays down the rules on the use of the Philippine national flag and anthem. It recognizes only ONE national anthem, “Lupang Hinirang” composed by Julian Felipe.

Many will recall that during 1Sambayan’s June 12 event in which it announced its short list of candidates for the 2022 Presidential and Vice Presidential contests, it played Ryan Cayabyab’s “O Bayan Ko” in lieu of Felipe’s “Lupang Hinirang.,”

“This is the highest form of disrespect for the country, its flag and its national anthem,” a spokesperson for the NHC told The Adobo Chronicles.

NHC, which is in charge of implementing RA 8491, did not reveal the amount of the fine, but sources say it is in the nine figures.

1Sambayan Announces Wild Card Presidential And Vice Presidential Candidates

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – From the initial six names announced on June 12 for 1Sambayan’s choices for President and Vice President candidates in 2022, four have withdrawn their names: Grace Poe, Eduardo Villanueva, Chel Diokno and Vilma Santos-Recto. That leaves Leni Robredo and Antonio Trillanes on its list.

But the game’s not over until it’s over.

The Opposition coalition announced its second short list — wild cards if you will — for their 2022 Presidential and VP choices: Kris Aquino, Mar Roxas, Maria Ressa and Angel Locsin. As of press time, none of the wild cards have accepted or rejected their “nomination.”

This is a developing story.
