DAVAO CITY, Philippines—The city hall here on Friday denied that Mayor Sara Duterte authorized any person to raise money, nor was she involved in any fundraising activity for victims of Typhoon “Ferdie” in Batanes.
In an advisory, Jefry Tupas, the city information officer, said “it has come to the attention of Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte that a person introducing himself as Nathan Garanzo has been using her name to solicit money from certain people, including some politicians.”

“The office of Mayor Inday Sara wishes to inform the public that she has not authorized anyone to solicit money on her behalf nor she is involved in any fundraising activity for Batanes as reportedly claimed by Nathan Garanzo,” Tupas said.

He said there was no truth either to Garanzo’s claim that a certain Retchie B. Banduriao acts as Duterte’s finance team head.

In one of the text messages forwarded to the city hall, Garanzo told one prospective “donor” that the contribution should be deposited to Banduriao’s account at Bank of the Philippine Islands. RAM
