Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was spotted attending an event with a broken shoe. President Duterte is known in the Philippines for being one of the humblest and at the same time one of the most corrupt people in the country. However, he was recently spotted with a broken shoe and many hearts of Filipinos were melted and touched.
Pictures were posted on Facebook by Melissa Tibas-Cañete Mawalic with a caption saying “Eto ba ang sinasabi nyong corrupt?” (Is this the guy you call corrupt?) …” Well, ang cute ng Presidente ditto” (Well, the President looks cute here) she added. Duterte was walking towards an event despite his right shoe was broken. The shoe sole seems to be separated from the upper part of the shoe.
Attending Prayers with a Broken Shoe
The former Davao City Mayor, now President of the Philippines, arrived at the Jose Maria College David’s Coffeeshop at Sunday midnight straight from a campaign sortie in Pasay City. The moment he went out of the vehicle to go inside the coffeeshop, the mayor was described to be dragging his right leg. It turned out, the sole of his right shoe was already loose, and he was trying to keep it on.
The president was attending a prayer by his friend Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KJC). A member of the KJC said that someone stepped on his shoes, that’s why it broke.
Natumban daw mao nadaot ang shoes” a KJC member said.
