President Rodrigo Duterte has finally made it clear that he is free of cancer. He reiterated that his medical exam pointed out his Barrett’s esophagus which he admitted of having even before.
KAMI has learned that during a Cabinet meeting, he discussed about his health condition.
“Hindi pa ako cancerous so do not be afraid to go near me, I will not contaminate you. It’s negative,” he assured the public.
“Pwede tayo mag-inuman ngayon,” he added.
The President then admitted of going back to his old habit which led to his worsening medical illness.
“It’s badly eroded because I was told to stop drinking years ago but of late, bumalik kasi ako. I don’t know for one reason or another I just like to drink. Brandy boy ako eh, ayan ang totoo,” he said.
“And, before I sleep, even if I’m alone, nag-te-three shots ako bago matulog,” the President added.
He also mentioned about letting the public know about his health condition as stated iin 1987 Philippine Constitution.
“It is not for public consumption. The constitution says that you must let the people know, but the procedure [does] not go directly to the people,” Duterte said.
As previously reported by KAMI, Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher “Bong” Go has assured the public that President Duterte will be finishing his term and the people should not worry anymore.
“He will finish his term and live beyond 2022. Tuloy lang po ang aming trabaho. Salamat po sa inyong concern sa kaniyang kalusugan. I assure you, there is nothing to worry about," he said.
President Duterte is the oldest to be elected as President in the country. He took his oath when he was 70 years old.
