My house is the same size as Mabilog’s kitchen – Duterte

President Rodrigo Duterte continued his tirade against Iloilo City Mayor Jed Mabilog who has gone on sick leave due to stress-induced diabetes.

After describing Mabilog’s mansion along the Iloilo River Esplanade a “palace”, Duterte said his house on a 200-square meter lot on Sapphire Street in Doña Luisa Phase 1, a low-cost private subdivision in Matina District, Davao City, was as big as Mabilog’s kitchen.

“Ang totoo talaga niyan, ang bahay ko, kusina mo (Mabilog) lang. Nagpunta ka man doon sa bahay ko,” said Duterte in a television interview.

“Hindi sabihin na hindi ako maka-afford. Maka-afford ako pero ipagbili ko lahat. So maghiram pa ako. Na mag-retire na ako after five years, may babayaran pa ako, matanda na ako. Bakit ka pa papasok ng ganun?” he added.

Mabilog, a second cousin of Senate Minority Leader Frank Drilon, has been tagged by Duterte as a narco-politiko and Iloilo the “most shabulized” in the country.
