Senator Pacquiao on Roque’s “watusi” remark: “Watusi pala?”

On Friday, Senator Manny Pacquiao said that he will reveal audio and video proof of his claims of corruption against several government agencies after his initial exposé was downplayed as mere “watusi” (fireworks).

Pacquiao told radio dzBB that he wasn’t fighting with President Rodrigo Duterte and all he knew was that the President didn’t want corruption either.

Natatawa lang ako. Sabi nila ‘watusi.’ Sige, pagdating ko diyan, ‘watusi’ pala? Ipapalabas ko video, audio recording—kung papayag lang maipalabas pati audio recording. Hindi ako nakikipagaway sa pangulo. Hindi ako nakikipag-away sayo, Mr. President. Ang alam ko ayaw mo rin ng korapsyon. Kahit ilan beses tayong naguusap, Mr. President, lagi kong sinasabi sayo na ayaw ko ng corruption,” Pacquiao said.

Pacquiao’s statement came after Roque branded the senator’s claims as “worthless”, calling it “watusi” (fireworks) since the supposed revelations were in general and not supported by evidence.

Before leaving the Philippines last July 4, Pacquiao alleged corruption in the use of an e-wallet application being used by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in order to distribute the government’s social amelioration program (SAP) aid.

According to Pacquiao, some unclaimed SAP benefits were labeled as received. The Department of Social Welfare and Development said that it will cooperate with any investigation.

The senator recently filed a resolution seeking a Senate probe into the issue.

Aside from this, Pacquiao had also tagged the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Department of Energy in alleged irregularities.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao was currently training in the United States for his boxing match in August.
