“I think it’s really timely. Kailangan ng peace of mind ng mga tao. I’m going to answer that not because inaakusahan ko ‘yung tao. Walang ganu’n" explained Gel.
“Magiging objective lang tayo. Kasi ako rin naman naakusahan publicly na without going through due process. So, hindi magandang pakiramdam ‘yun.”
"“Kung ano lang ‘yung kailangan natin I would say kung ako ‘yung presidente ng Pilipinas, yes I will fire Secretary Duque," said the actress.
"Not because naniniwala ako he is corrupt. Wala po sa ganon, but because ‘yung pag-e-explain lang sa mga tao na dito napunta ‘yung tax natin na binabayaran," said Gel.
Again, she clarified that it does not automatically mean that Duque is guilty.
Angel Locsin or Angelica Locsin Colmenares is a famous actress and endorser in the Philippines, who is best known for her portrayal of the superhero Darna. The actress is currently engaged to Neil Arce.
Angel Locsin has buzzed the online community after she was featured on Matteo Guidicelli's podcast, #MattRuns. During the said interview, Matteo went ahead and asked Angel how she knew that Neil Arce was "the one." Much to the viewers' surprise, Angel said she initially saw and treated Neil like a "brother" or a "tropa." According to Angel, Neil became her "takbuhan" whenever she encountered several heartbreaks back in the day.
She took to social media to air her thoughts on Sec. Harry Roque’s circulating video. It could be seen in the leaked video that the Presidential spokesperson became emotional during an IATF meeting. He could not help raising his voice while opposing a doctor who pleaded to retain NCR under hard lockdown. On her Instagram Stories, Angel bravely questioned Roque’s way of raising his concern.
