The President has already fired his own campaign spokesman Peter Laviña from his post as National Irrigation Administration chief due to allegations of corruption, a claim Laviña denies.
He has also removed two of his fraternity brothers from their posts in the Bureau of Immigration. With corruption bubbling on the surface, Duterte says he would fire more of his appointees in the coming days.
"In the coming days, I'm going to fire additional people whom I have appointed in government. There are many of them, I'm still trying to figure out how it was done," Duterte said during his speech at the wake of two soldiers killed in action in Cagayan de Oro.
The President warned that “there are many” people whom he will fire due to allegations of unlawful acts or abusing their power.
“This is my warning to those in the government: whether you are a director or CESO or civil service eligible, I’m telling you stop it – at least for 6 years, while I’m still sitting in office,” he said.
