of orders and not complain.

Suddenly, I would just tell you, ‘You go to Marawi because nobody is supervising there.
’ Mapagawa mo ba ‘yan sa babae? Ipasubo mo?” Duterte said in a speech in Davao City,
referring to the war-torn city in the south.
(I stated, I truly don’t care for selecting ladies. I lean toward men since I have a considerable measure of requests. Abruptly, I would simply let you know, ‘You go to Marawi on the grounds that no one is regulating there.’ Can you ask ladies that, compel them into that circumstance?)
Truly intend to be give to ladies
Duterte, in any case, said there are positions that are truly intend to be give to ladies, for example, the best post at the tourism office.
“Ako nasanay ako sa lalaki. Pero ‘yung mga posisyon na di kailangan — tourism,” he said.
