LASTING LEGACY
Editorial cartoon by Romy Castro

IN MOST of his speeches, President Rodrigo Duterte has been consistent in declaring that he is leaving his fate in the hands of God and would accept whatever is in store for him especially concerning the remaining years on his stint as the country’s leader.

Editorial cartoon by Romy Castro
