MANILA, Philippines – Two of President Rodrigo Duterte’s children will not be attending this year’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) slated on the afternoon of July 22 (Monday).

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and her brother, Davao City Vice Mayor Sebastian “Baste” Duterte, in separate press statements, said they will be missing the event at the Batasang Pambansa.

Sara said she is on a 60-day medical leave.

“It’s a gyne (gynecological) condition,” she said in a text message to reporters.

Meanwhile, Baste said he would have to attend the regular session of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Davao.

The presidential son added he would just stay in the city and watch the event on television.

“Ako dili ko maka-attend ug SONA kay naa man gud tay session sa Tuesday ana so murag kapoy na pud nga mubalik pa ko ug sayo diri sa buntag so diri na lang ko, tan-aw na lang ko sa TV,” Baste said in a press briefing.

(I won’t be attending the SONA because we will have a session on Tuesday. It would be tiring for me to travel back to Davao early in the morning from Manila. So, I will just stay here, I’ll watch the event on TV.)

On the other hand, their eldest brother, Davao City 1st District Representative Paolo Duterte is expected to be present at the ceremony as he will attend the opening of the regular session of the 18th Congress on the morning of July 22.  

Last year, all members of the Duterte family were present during the gathering.

Pagbabawal sa non-essential face-to-face gathering sa Davao City, pinalawig hanggang Sept. 2022

Robie de Guzman   •   January 6, 2022

Pinalawig pa ng lokal na pamahalaan ng Davao City ang pagbabawal sa non-essential physical gatherings sa mga opisina ng gobyerno sa lungsod.

Sa bisa ng Executive Order No. 69 na nilagdaan ni Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, extended hanggang Setyembre ngayong taon ang pagbabawal sa mga non-essential face-to-face events sa lahat ng opisina ng gobyerno dahil na rin sa banta ng paglitaw ng Omicron at iba pang variant ng COVID-19.

Sakop ng kautusan ang mga barangay, local, national government offices, agencies at instrumentalities, gayundin ang Government-owned and -controlled corporations (GOCC).

Layunin ng kautusan na maiwasan ang hawaan at muling pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa lungsod.

Suspendido rin kahit ang mga maituturing na essential activities gaya ng face-to-face trainings at seminars, kung ito ay hindi naman emergency.

Ang pamamahagi ng food o non-food items na walang kaugnayan sa kalamidad at mga emergency na sitwasyon ay dapat ring ipamahagi via house-to-house sa pamamagitan ng contactless delivery.

Ang tangi lamang pinapayagang pagtitipon sa local government agencies ay ang pagsasagawa online ng mga sumusunod na aktibidad:

  • inauguration
  • anniversary
  • thanksgiving
  • ribbon-cutting
  • blessing
  • turnover
  • groundbreaking activity
  • launching program
  • salo-salo
  • birthday
  • press conferences
  • oath taking program
  • photo opportunity
  • retirement honors
  • welcome honors
  • testimonial programs
  • summer outing
  • team building

Sa kasalukuyan ay nasa 79 ang aktibong kaso ng COVID-19 sa Davao City.

Pero pinaghahandaan na ng lokal na pamahalaan ang posibilidad ng pagdami ng kaso sa susunod na mga linggo dahil sa kakatapos lamang na holiday season at posibleng pagpasok ng Omicron variant sa lungsod. (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lucille Lloren)
