‘Kay Garcia kasi’: Osmeña calls out SunStar for skate park ‘obsession’
He already had plans to build a skate prior months before the athlete’s big win.
Mayor Tommy Osmeña called out Cebu’s Sun Star newspaper for peddling fake news that he has become “obsessed” in politicizing the Asian Games victory of Margielyn Didal, a Cebuana who brought home a gold medal for skateboarding.
“SunStar, before you lie about ‘Tommy Osmeña is obsessed with politicizing Margie Didal’s gold medal’ by building a skate park, would you like to note that while Ms. Didal won her gold in August 29, I announced the skate park LAST MAY?,” the politiko shared.
He added that the plan was ripe even before Didal’s sweet win, but that it sparked renewed interest as she brought pride to Cebu City. Osmeña went as far as exposing that the paper is portraying that the SRP — where the proposed skate park will rise — is owned by bilyonaryo Henry Sy.
“There is a saying, ‘Sa SunStar, petsa ray sakto.’ I know you are owned by the Garcias, but study your petsas naman,” Osmeña added.
