City Hall worker’s TV stunt aims to destroy me – Treñas


Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas said the appearance of city hall employee Rosita Camacho in the government-owned People’s Television Network’s “8888 Digong Hotline’ show” is aimed at destroying his political ascendancy.

Camacho, a special operations officer at the Iloilo City Hall, had accused Treñas of coercion and oppression.

Treñas accused Camacho, a supporter of former mayor Jose Espinosa III, of being under the influence of a master. (

“She is no ordinary employee. And there is somebody using her,” the mayor said.

Before she became a regular employee at city hall during the Espinosa administration, Camacho had already been working as house maid of the Espinosa family, said Treñas.

To recall, Camacho claimed that the mayor pressured her and a few others to file a six-month leave of absence, otherwise they would be facing charges.

“Sa mahal naming Presidente, humihingi po ako ng tulong. Ordinaryong empleyado lang ako. Natatakot ako sa buhay ko kung ano ang mangyari sa akin. Ikaw nga e, hinamon ka n’ya noon ng suntukan,” she said during the show.
