Fresh from Japan, Duterte visits wake of Nene Pimentel
MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte visited late Tuesday night the wake of former Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr. at Heritage Park in Taguig City.
The President went straight to the wake after getting back from his Japan trip, which had been cut short after he complained of pain in his spine due to a motorcycle accident last week.
