NegOcc mayor Mangilimutan wants proof NPA supporting politicians
La Castellana Mayor Rhumylla Nicor-Mangilimutan of Negros Occidental urged the military to show proof that some politicians in the province are supporters of the New People’s Army (NPA).
The Armed Forces of the Philippines should prove any information linking local officials to the local rebels, said Mangilimutan.
“If you are taking care of your community and the delivery of services is there, I think there will be no rebels,” the lady politiko said in The Daily Guardian report.
Based on her recent meetings with the town’s peace and order councril, Mangilimutan said that La Castellana does not have any notable NPA presence.
According to her, she has not received any extortion messages – only threatening text messages that she believes are “politically motivated.”
