No one but Duterte can sack Mocha Uson, says Martin Andanar
Only President Rodrigo Duterte can remove or compel Mocha Uson to resign as assistant communications secretary.
Uson’s direct supervisor, Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, said Uson appointed
by the President and the power to remove her rested on him alone.
Only one person can make Uson quit and that is the President because he is the appointing authority,” Andanar said.
Andanar made the remarks after Harold Clavite, Philippine Information Agency director general, repeated a call fo
r the resignation of Uson, who had become famous for her online sex video tutorials.
Clavite said many employees and other officials in the Presidential Communications Operations Office and its line agencies shared his sentiment.
“The nation has seen what a Mocha Uson could do to administration,” Clavite said on the sidelines of a meeting in Iligan City for Task Force Bangon Marawi on Friday.
These bungles, said Clavite, “have undermined and discolored the brand and picture of the President and this administration.”
Hence, Cavite was alluding to the disputable “Pepe-dede-ralismo” video of Uson and her buddy, blogger Andrew Olivar, as far as anyone knows advancing federalism and transferred by Uson on her Facebook page in August.
Multi month later, the match drew fire again when Uson’s Facebook page highlighted a video of Olivar ridiculing the communication through signing and Uson remarking out of sight.
