In an interview with ABS-CBN, Ang Probinsyano star and veteran actor, Jaime Fabregas said that President Rodrigo Duterte is being controlled by his men and not the other way around.
"Well I think it's time na to stop, you know, standing lang around, not saying anything, not doing anything. I think itong pagpatay kay (the death of) Kian has brought everything to the fore already. Wala nang control si (President Rodrigo) Duterte sa nangyayari. Siya na ang kino-control ng mga tao niya He (President Rodrigo) Duterte has no more control in the situation. It's his people who are controling him)," he said.
People composed of youth groups trooped to the Edsa People Power Monument early Monday afternoon to protest not only the death of Kian but also to call on the government to go after the real drug lords. – Rappler.com
