Tacloban Mayor Alfred Romualdez claimed a lot of things about how the national government handled the Yolanda disaster. One of the things he claimed was how DILG Secretary Mar Roxas told him to legalize matters since he is a Romualdez and the president is an Aquino. No one knows what actually happened during the meetings in Tacloban City, except for the people who witnessed these meetings. However, a video just surfaced on YouTube where Mar Roxas appears to have uttered the words claimed by Mayor Romualdez.
The YouTube video is entitled “Mar Roxas Telling Off Alfred Romualdez” and uploaded by Josemari Gonzales. Here is the video of Mar Roxas in a meeting with Alfred Romualdez.
The video is only 18 seconds long and appears to have been cut and edited. This means there are other things that could have transpired on the meeting. The entire, uncut video could appear soon and let’s hope it does so we can see the context where the words were uttered by DILG Secretary Mar Roxas. Maybe the whole video will show us a different story, maybe it will not.
“You have to understand you are a Romualdez and the President is an Aquino so so we just want to legalize if not legalized well ok you are in charge we can’t help you bahala na kayo sa buhay niyo.”
