Pres. Duterte 'okay' after motorcycle accident




This is a situation that dreaded the administration, but would definitely bring more elation and joy to the opposition politicians.
Good thing President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is “okay” after the “motorcycle accident” in Malcanang compound yesterday, according to former trusted aide, and now senator Senator Christopher ‘Bong” Go, who was able to witnessed the whole incident.


President Rodrigo Duterte fell off his 650cc dirt bike after he made a sharp turn in Malacanang grounds, landing on his left elbow, Senator Go said.

“Siyempre worried po kami kaya lang sabi niya, ‘Okay lang ako. Do not worry, I’m okay’,” Go told Senate reporters.
(Of course we were worried but he said, ‘I’m okay. Do not worry, I’m okay.)
“Rider naman po si Pangulong Duterte so sanay po 'yan pero at his age dapat alalay na po. Kaya lang umiiral 'yung hilig niya sa motor kaya di maiwasan,” Go said of the 74-year-old chief executive. 


(President Duterte is a rider so he is used to it but at his age, he needs to slow down but his love for motorcycles prevails.)

2 versions of the accident

According to Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo, the President was reaching for his shoe when he fell off the parked motorcycle resulting in “light bruises and slight scratches.” 
According to Presidential Security Guard (PSG) Commander Brig. Gen. Jose Niembrasaid Duterte was trying out motorcycles when he bumped into an “obstruction” on his way out of a garage in the compound. 



Atty. Panelo refused to clarify details of the President's accident, saying what's important is that Duterte is "in good hands." 
"Whatever the story, ang importante (what's important is) he is in good hands, walang (there's no) major injury," he said.
“We assure our people that the President is fine, and his recovery entails no major medical procedure,” Panelo said, noting that the President does not need to see a doctor.
