DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is known for his off the cuff comments about sensitive issues, including rape.
In a recent comment, Duterte admitted that he had molested the family maid when he was a teenager.
The admission didn’t sit well with Rappler CEO Maria Ressa who had previously revealed that she has been receiving rape threats. The Filipina women’s group GABRIELA is demanding the President’s resignation. Even die-hard Duterte supporters have taken to social media to express their indignation over the comment.
Today, Duterte’s partner, Honeylet Avanceña has broken her silence over the comment.
The Adobo Chronicles asked Ms. Avanceña about her reaction to Duterte’s revelation, and with obvious conviction and resolve, she simply said: “Digong will be outside the kulambo starting tonight.’
For our readers who are not familiar with the Filipino expression about “outside the kulambo,” it simply means one will not be allowed to sleep in the same bed.
