PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has ordered authorities to rearrest the suspect in the brutal killing of 16-year-old Christine Silawan in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

“Historically, ayaw ko talagang — ayaw kong mag-celebrate ng birthday. Gusto ko sa bahay lang matulog ako. And if there’s somebody that is really welcome to me, ‘yung mga anak ko, pati ‘yung apo ko,” Duterte said in a speech at the PDP-Laban campaign rally in Koronadal City, South Cotabato.

“Iyong mga asawa ko maski hindi nila ako pansinin okay lang. May galit man sila sa akin so mag-inom na lang ako ng tubig pakalma,” he said.

Duterte was previously married to Elizabeth Zimmerman with whom he has three children, including Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. He is now living with his common-law wife Honeylet Avanceña, the mother of his youngest child Veronica.

Malacañang said that just like in the previous years, the President will stay in his hometown Davao City for his birthday.
