Duterte to exhaust means to ensure OFWs in Kuwait could go home

Duterte on Sunday said he will rob a bank if he needs to just to ensure all overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from Kuwait could return home.

Upon the president’s arrival in Davao City from Singapore, Duterte said he intends to use donation from Chinese president Xi Jinping, initially for rehabilitation of hospitals, for OFWs returning from Kuwait.

“Gamitin ko ‘yung pera. Sabi ko, diyan na muna ‘yan. Place it in trust. And once we start to withdraw all Filipinos there in Kuwait, maybe I’ll tell you the result of our intervention in behalf of our countrymen,” Duterte said.

“Though the calamitous events did not occur here but para sa akin kung naghihirap lang ‘yung mga kababayan ko, gagamitin ko. Magnanakaw pa ako kung gusto mo. Ako na ang magnakaw sa central bank mismo. But they have to come home,” he added.

Duterte clarified he does not hate the Kuwaiti government despite the growing tension between the two countries.

“Lahat ‘yung nandiyan ngayon 700 facing charges. Wala akong –I do not nurture hate against the Kuwaiti people and government for after all the so many years that we were in the best of relations, nakinabang naman ang mga Pilipino.

“Maraming nagtatrabaho doon. There are a lot of guys working there for so many years to enable their children to study and finish. And for that matter alone, the sheer help that we had. I’m grateful,” he said.

He, however, reiterated his plea for OFWs in the Gulf state to return home for the sake of “patriotism.”

“Come home. Maski gaano tayo kahirap, mabubuhay tayo.”

“Economy is doing good and we are short of our workers. Walang master carpenter, wala na tayong master plumber, wala na tayong master electricians. ‘Yung plumber sa atin, ‘pag flush mo, imbes na papunta ng taas, ah baba, mag-sulpot doon sa itaas. They are all there in the Middle East,” he added.
