Duterte serious on fighting corruption: 'it must stop now'

President-elect Duterte said on his speech in a gathering of businessmen and his future Cabinet at the SMX Convention Center in Davao City.

"Let me be brutal and frank to you all. Corruption must stop now," Duterte said.

He added, "And I would address to all Filipinos who want to do something for your country and never had the opportunity because walang nag-yayaya sa inyo. Ngayon niyo na gawin kasi ako na (ang presidente). Ayaw ko talaga ng corruption. It makes me sick."

The former Davao City Mayor Duterte was known as a honest and truhtful public servant in their municipality. In his nearly three-decade stint in government, Duterte has no record on corruption.

Duterte said, "My standard would be zero tolerance sa graft pati sa criminality. I would never preside over the affairs of this country with a corrupt police and drugs abound destroying the lives of the Filipinos."
