It will be relentless.

“Corruption. Wala akong pasensya (I have no patience for that). And we will continue to purge government. Walang sagrado dito sa akin. Ni anak ko, ni kaibigan ko, wala ako. Basta nandiyan ka, nandiyan ka. Pasensya ka (No one is sacred, not children, not friends, no one. As long as you’re there, sorry) period,” he said  in a speaking engagement in Negros Occidental.
This was on the same day he fired Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) chairman Alexander Balutan over alleged corruption issues.
Duterte says that even the honest officials sometimes succumbs to temptation.
The President however, said he would listen to those who could be victims of discrimination in their offices. He did not give any particular example   regarding that situation during his speech.

Radical change is needed to end corruption in the Philippines

In a different speaking engagement from the President , he declares that radical change is needed to put to an end to corruption in government.
“The way the bureaucracy is set up, it is really conducive to or for corruption to thrive. Ganun ang Pilipinas,” Duterte said in his remarks. “You would need a radical change overnight if you want corruption to stop,” the President said.
