MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday reminded voters that they do not owe government officials for the programs and projects they implemented.

“Remember, they do not function na gastos nila. Wala akong nakita na politiko na gumastos ng sariling pera para ibigay sa tao. Inyo ‘yan. Galing sa bulsa ninyo ‘yan,” Duterte said in a speech at the PDP-Laban campaign rally in Malabon City.

“Wala kayong utang na loob sa mga politiko. Lahat ‘yan pati suweldo nila, pera ninyo. Kaya huwag kayong magsabi na ito si mayor ano, galante. Anak ng jueteng, hindi ninyo alam kung saan ‘yan bumabawi,” he added.

The President issued the statement as he reminded the public to be vigilant against corruption. He admitted having difficulty controlling corruption in the lower levels of government.

“Pinakamatindi --- corruption sa mababa. Wala na kayong problema dito sa taas, sa Executive department, ‘yung mga Gabinete,” he said.
 
“‘Yung sa baba, itong elected officials, wala kong control, supervision lang po ako na they do things the right way. Dito nagkakaroon ng corruption,” Duterte added.
 
He invited victims of corruption to report to him in Malacanang.
 
“‘Pag hiningan ka, pumunta ka ng Malacañan. P***** i**, sabihin mo sa akin doon,” Duterte said.
 
“Pakinggan kita. Tawagin ko ‘yung si director de p***. Sampalin ko ‘yan sa harap ninyo. Oo. O sipain ko,” he added.
