Nancy Binay’s ‘sweet dilemma’
MANILA, Philippines — How can Senator Nancy Binay prove that she had nothing to do with the cakes being given to senior citizens in Makati City?
Quoting the individual, Binay told reporters Wednesday: “Sabi ma’am, natanggap ko na yung cake, ang sarap ng cake.”
“Parang hindi ko tuloy alam, ide-deny ko ba e parang tuwang-tuwa sya sa cake. Pag deniny ko, baka hindi na matuwa sa akin dahil hindi pala ako ang nag baked nun. E hindi naman talaga ako nag bake why would I claim credit for something na hindi ko ginawa,” she said.
In the end, Binay said she just thanked that person but explained that she did not bake it.
The senator said the cake issue has become her problem since allegations were made at the Senate that she was into the business with her father, Vice President Jejomar Binay, then city mayor.
“Pag lumalabas ako, parang gusto akong hingan ng cake. Wala akong ibibigay, mag aabono pa ako,” the senator lamented.
