Duterte to visit Guimaras; condole with kin of those who died in capsized boats
MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte will visit Guimaras province on Wednesday to condole with the families of those who died after three motorboats capsized in waters between Iloilo and Guimaras provinces.
“I saw there’s a Guimaras in the schedule. I just don’t know the time,” presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo in a Palace briefing on Tuesday.
Malacañang earlier called for “more prudence and caution” in sea travel after three motorized boats capsized off Iloilo and Guimaras provinces over the weekend, killing at least 28 people.
The motorboats Chi-Chi and Jenny Vince sunk after powerful waves battered the boats on Saturday. /muf
