DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rodigo Duterte’s common law wife, Honeylet Avancena, finally broke her silence a day after a video went viral showing the President kissing a Filipina lady on the lips during his meeting with the Filipino community in South Korea.
The video elicited comments from both Duterte critics and supporters, with the latter defending the President’s actions.
Today, The Adobo Chronicles spoke with Avancena by Skype and we asked her to comment on the controversial video. She said:
”He’s the President, so he can do as he pleases. But I’m his wife, and I can do what I want at home. So when he comes back from South Korea, Digong will be sleeping outside the kulambo for the next six months.”
(Outside the kulambo is a popular phrase used by Filipinos and usually refers to a husband banned from sleeping in the same bed as the wife as punishment for his misdemeanor.)
