Duterte vows to double soldiers’ pay on one condition: Dapat patay lahat sa engkwentro!

President Rodrigo Duterte has assured soldiers they will be his number one priority throughout his term.

In his speech before members of the 1002nd Infantry Brigade Wednesday (July 5), Duterte even vowed to raise soldiers’ pay– with a catch.

“At next year, tingnan ninyo ‘yung sweldo ninyo ngayon after — lumalaki na. Tingnan niyo ulit. By next year, doblado na, doblado. January, tabla na ang sweldo ninyo,” he said.

“Pero dapat, every encounter, patay lahat. Ayoko magdala ng buhay, preso. Papakainin ko pa ‘yan,” the President added.

In addition to raising their salaries, Duterte said he will change procurement rules so that soldiers can immediately have the equipment they need.

He also reiterated his promise to create a multibillion-peso trust fund for the education of the soldiers’ children, which will be under the care of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
