Has Sara Duterte changed her mind about #Duterte2016?
The daughter of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte posts pictures of her sporting a bald head and captions sending "good vibes to #Duterte2016"

DAVAC CITY, Philippines – Sara Duterte-Carpio, daughter of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, is now sporting a bald head.

In her Facebook account, Inday Sara Duterte, she posted:  “Nagpa upaw nalang ko samtang naghulat ‪#‎Duterte2016‬ ‪#‎kalboparasapagbabago‬‪#‎NohairWecare‬ bisan walay kwarta, bisan way makinarya, bisan mapildi ‪#‎justDUit‬”

(I go bald while waiting #Duterte2016#kalboparasapagbabago#NohairWecare even if we don’t have money, even if don’t have the machinery, even if we lose #justdUit)

People close to her are wondering why she has gone bald.

Avid Duterte supporters are now wondering, could these posts mean Sara has had a change of heart when it comes to her father’s presidential bid?

Her captions are sprinkled with telling hashtags like “#Duterte2016,” the hashtag used by social media users campaigning for a Duterte presidency.

Sara’s possible change of heart could have an effect on Duterte’s own decision-making regarding his 2016 plans.

The mayor himself has said that Sara’s opposition to his possible presidential bid was a major factor in his decision not to run.

For the past 3 days, the family has been feeling the pressure after the older Duterte, in a press conference, said he is not running for  the presidency – the second time in weeks. 

Right after the Monday, October 12 press conference, Sara’s Instagram account showed her picture with the message, “Your Excellency, don’t shoot your First Lady.”

The photo was accompanied by a caption that reads: “sending #goodvibes to #Digong #Duterte2016 #pussyfooting”

On October 12, Sara responded to a Facebook post accusing her of blocking her father’s presidential bid.

“Really? Do you think a wise man and a seasoned politician will decide on the basis of my opinion,” she said in her Facebook page, where she shared the post.

On Tuesday night, Sara posted a picture showing her back with very short hair with the hashtag “#bakukangsaulo.”

Early this morning, Sara’s picture of her shaved head was all over the social media site. – With reports from Pia Ranada/Rappler.com
