TUGUEGARAO CITY, Philippines- Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba, the new provincial chairman of PDP-Laban, revealed he had been “betrayed” by his allies during the 2016 elections.
A visibly angry Mamba said Korina Sanchez, the wife of presidential bet Mar Roxas, and Quezon City representative Kit Belmonte had “talks with his two opponents for gubernatorial position.
“Saka alam niyo yung nangyari sa akin noong election, kung paano ako tin-raydor. Ako, you treat me the way I should treat you. Kung hindi ako magtraydor sa ‘yo, huwag mo akong traydorin. Wala pang president na trinaydor ako,” he said.
“Pero last time, grabe iyong pinangtreat sa akin.Nandun sila sa lahat ng kalaban. I was [complaining]. Kaya nga after election, umalis na ‘yung dalawang kapatid ko, hindi ko pa sila mapigilan dahil sa ginawa sa akin,” Mamba added.
He added that Roxas will receive zero vote in his supposed senatorial bid in 2016 from his hometown Tuao.
“Kaya nga nagpasabi si Mar sa akin na tatakbo raw siyang senador, sabihin ninyo sa kanya ah, zero siya sa Tuao… just to tell him never treat people who are good and loyal to you the way you treat me in the last election,” Mamba said.
In 2016, Roxas got an overwhelming 14,508 votes in Mamba’s town, followed by former Vice President Jejomar Binay at 4,799. Northernforum.net
