During his press conference in Davao, he shared his condolences to Sen. Miriam’s family, “I would like to express my deepest condolences. I grieve with the family, with Narciso, the husband, si Benjie used to be a general of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. To the children, I share your grief.”
“We have lost a leader,” said the President and added that he will definitely miss Sen. Miriam’s “colorful language also and above all her brains.” Pres. Duterte would also like to visit the wake if he makes it back on time in Manila.
“We’ve lost a good guy in the government,” he said and we couldn’t agree more.
