Senators have donated more than just salaries in COVID-19 fight - Sotto



Senate President Vcente “Tito” Sotto was put into the defensive when he and the rest of the senators were called out in the open letter Manila Mayor Isko Moreno made public.

In the battle against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or Covid-19 crisis, Sotto says the senators have already donated more than just their monthly pay.


“The Senators have been donating more than just their salaries since day one but never published it!” Sotto said in Twitter, Sunday.

The Tweet is somewhat the response of the Senate President when House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano announced that over 200 congressmen will donate their full one month salary to aid the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.



The other day, Cabinet Secretary Karo Nograles said most of the cabinet members of the Duterte administration also have agreed to donate 75% of their salary to the war chest of government in fighting COVID-19.

Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo also confirmed that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte will also donate his 1 month salary as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
