JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo and a select group of politicians are in South Africa reportedly to witness the first-ever head transplant to be performed by an international surgical team based in Johannesburg.
It will be recalled that Robredo, in a video message to a United Nations Conference, had accused the Philippine government and its National Police of a scheme known as “Palit-Ulo” (Switch Head), whereby family members of suspected drug lords are apprehended when the target individuals are not around during a raid.
Apparently, Robredo misspoke about the scheme which, in actuality, is a police strategy to let go of small-time drug suspects in exchange for information on the bigger fish fry — the illegal drug lords.
So, in order to be better informed about how Palit-Ulo is done, Robredo and her team have volunteered to personally witness the head transplant in Johannesburg.
First-hand information is always best.
