Rodrigo “Rigo” Duterte II joined residents of Barangay 74-A, Matina Crossing in celebrating the Araw ng Barangay on Wednesday.

Duterte II also congratulated Barangay Captain Joel Santes and the barangay councilors for maintaining the peace and order in the said barangay.

“Dili pud nato kalimtan pasalamatan ang mga barangay functionaries nga naghago nga imentinar ang kahapsay ug kalinaw sa inyong barangay,” Duterte II said in his message.

The young Duterte explained that his father failed to attend the celebration because he was looking after his son who was infected with Covid-19.

“Gusto ipaabot pud sa akong amahan nga nangayo sya ug pasaylo nga dili makatambong sa selebrasyon, Gusto pud niya ipaabot ang dakong pasalamat sa padayon ninyong pagsuporta sa iyaha ug sa among pamilya,” he said.

Before concluding his message, the young Duterte introduced himself in jest.

“Usa ko mahuman ani akong pakighinabi kaninyo, tuguti diay ko nga magpaila ila: Ako si Rodrigo “Rigo” Duterte II, ang pinakahimsog nga anak ni Pulong. Di na ta maghisgot ug guwapo ihatag na nako na sa mga maayong laki diri sa inyong barangay labi na sa atong Mayor Baste,” he said.

The young Duterte has been standing-in for his father in community engagements and extending assistance to fire victims in Davao City.
