- Senator Leila De Lima wishes for the president to stop attacking her and for a new love life for her birthday
- President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that a certain “Warren” is the senator’s new boyfriend
- Duterte also presented a “matrix” showing her links in the drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison
Senator Leila De Lima will celebrate her 57th birthday tomorrow and one of her wishes is for the president to stop attacking her.
“My No. 1 wish at the moment, given all that is happening. I hope the President stops attacking me. I hope he puts an end very soon to this whole madness,” De Lima told the media at her advance celebration in the Senate on Thursday.
“I am not asking that for my own sake, but it’s for the sake of my family, for the sake of the President himself, and especially for the sake of the country. I feel like the attacks have been coming one after another, no let up,” she added.
As if denying the allegations about her alleged lovers that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte kept revealing in the media, De Lima said that her second wish is for her to find a new love.
“I don’t have a love life right now. So that brings me to my second wish … . I wish I had a love life now, so I would have a partner to be beside me through all of these,” De Lima said.
Rumors about the senator’s affair with her driver and bodyguard Ronnie Palisoc Dayan are rife since President Duterte made the shocking revelation last week. The president added that De Lima’s boyfriend is her alleged collector of drug money from the drug lords in the New Bilibid prison. This week, the president said a certain “Warren” as the senator’s new beau.
Duterte also released a “matrix” charting her alleged links to the drug trade in New Bilibid Prison. However, the senator just laughed it off calling the matrix as “garbage”.
The senator warned the president to stop or he will lose face for his baseless allegations, to which the president answered that this is beyond De Lima’s control and more revelations will come.
De Lima pushed for a senate inquiry on the extrajudicial killings happening under the current administration. - Kami Media
