SILANG, Cavite — Presidential candidate Senator Manny Pacquiao on Monday is frowning at someone’s idea that corruption is “normal” as it is supposedly a “human condition,” asserting that it is not the case for him.

Pacquiao once again vowed to fight corruption in government if he wins the presidential race on May 9.

“Normal na lang daw ang pagnanakaw? Grabe naman. Hindi sa akin,” Pacquiao said in an apparent dig at Ferdinand Marcos Jr., who claimed that corruption in the country cannot be stopped because it is a “human condition.” Marcos Jr. is also running for president in this year’s polls.

(It is normal to steal? Not for me.)

“Pakainin mo ‘yung pamilya ko ng ninakaw mo? Biruin mo kaya mo pakainin ang pamilya mo ng ninakaw na pera. Mahirap ‘yun,” he added.

(You will feed your family with money you stole? Imagine you’re capable of feeding your family with stolen money. That’s hard to comprehend.)

Pacquiao said he would introduce “godly leadership” if he becomes president.

“Ipapakita ko sa inyo kung ano ‘yung godly leadership. Maayos na pag-gobyerno para umunlad tayo. Kailangan natin disiplinahin,” the world boxing champ-turned-politician said in a press briefing here.

(I will show you what godly leadership is. Good governance so that we would have progress. We need discipline.)

One of the incumbent senator’s major campaign promises is stamping out corruption in government, which he blamed for mass poverty and stunted economic growth.
