Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte understands the second highest position of the land is the biggest obstacle to anyone aspiring of the presidency.

That includes being the punching bag and the target of attacks.

Duterte reacted to the allegation of a witness that she took a bag with firearms saying that in the history of the Philippines, it has become a practice to attack and throw stones of various issues against the Vice President, perhaps, because the VP stands as the main obstacle to those who dream of becoming president.

“Sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas, naging kagawian na ang pag-atake at pagbato ng sari-saring isyu laban sa Bise Presidente. Marahil, sapagkat ang Bise Presidente ang tumatayong pangunahing hadlang sa mga nangangarap maging pangulo. Hindi ko ikakagulat kung dumami pa ang mga kaso, imbestigasyon, testigo, paratang, atake, at paninira laban sa akin sa mga susunod na araw, lingo, buwan, at mga taon,” Duterte said in a statement.

This developed after alias “Rene”, a witness at the ongoing Senate inquiry, alleged that the vice president and her father, former president Rodrigo Duterte, during one of their visits at the controversial evangelist Apollo Quiboloy’s Glory Mountain, left with bag of assorted firearms.

Glory Mountain is a 21-hectare property owned by the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) led by Pastor Quiboloy in Barangay Tamayong, Calinan District in Davao City.

Duterte believes there is a right time for everything.
