As the debate on whether or not the death penalty shall be revived heats up, some Cebuanos await the stand of a lady lawmaker who has been popular for her “pro-life” stance in the past.
Currently a supporter of President Duterte, people wonder whether she will stand up for what she consistently believed in or will she compromise her principles to serve the agenda of the country’s top local executive.
“Hilom pa man. Abangan na lang natin ang susunod na kabanata (She is still quiet. Lets just wait for her next move),” a Cebuano said.
About 800 persons joined the “Walk for Life” in Cebu City last Saturday.
Except for a bishop and a priest, members of the local clergy were not seen during the event.
One person who joined the activity expressed dismay over the failure of priests to lead the way.
“Asa kaha ang mga pari? Sila baya gyud unta ang manguna. Syaro sa kadaghang pari sa Cebu, usa o duha ra gyud ang nitunga. Pagka-pait!” he said.
(Where are the priests? They are supposed to lead this walk. It’s sad that there are so many priests in Cebu but only one or who came.)
SMALL FRIES ONLY
Has the government been successful in its war on drugs?
Not so, a broadcaster said.
“Ang magtsinelas og nagpurol ra man kasagaran ang napatay. Ang mga drug lords ug police general nga ginanglan ni Duterte, wala man hilabti,” he said.
(Only those in slippers and shirts were killed. The drug lords and police generals named by Duterte are untouched.)
