GONZAGA SLAMS ‘DEFECTIVE’ PRESIDENT DUTERTE LOW-COST HOUSING FOR TYPHOON PABLO VICTIMS IN DAVAO DE ORO

HOUSES ALLEGEDLY CONSTRUCTED USING RICE HULLS

By ROGER M. BALANZA

Davao de Oro 2nd District Rep. Peter Ruwel Gonzaga said low cost housing units built by government for victims in Davao de Oro of Supertyphoon Pablo were defective and constructed using rice hulls.

Go to Maparat and you will find out that rice hulls were used in the construction of the houses, said Gonzaga in a recent interview with an FM radio station based in Tagum City, Davao del Norte.

Maparat is a barangay in Compostela municipality, among areas hit worse by the supertyphoon that devastated the Davao Region in December 2012.

In a news report in 2014 two years after Pablo, the NHA said that in Davao de Oro, it built 2,967 units spread in the towns of New Bataan (Barangays San Roque, 1,214 and Andap, 50), Monkayo (Union, 225 and Lower Ulip, 443), Brgy. New Visayas in Montevista (335), Brgy. Maparat, Compostela (300) and Brgy. Kidawa, Laak (400).

In the aftermath of the disaster that killed hundreds and displaced thousands of families in Davao de Oro, the worst hit province, President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the release of funds for contruction of houses for families who lost their homes in Pablo’s fury.

In the radio program, Gonzaga cited massive corruption in construction of the low-cost housing and accused Davao de Oro Board Member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy as having benefitted from the alleged anomaly.

But Gonzaga is barking at the wrong tree for blaming Chiongkee, then the sitting governor when Pablo struck, as the houses were constructed by the National Housing Authority (NHA) and not by the Davao de Oro local government.

Chiongkee has dismissed the allegation against him as pure lies and has dared Gonzaga to raise the issue to the NHA, the Commission on Audit (COA) or the court.

While his guns are trained at Chiongkee, Gonzaga’s attack on the government project is apparently ipolitiically-motivated aimed at the administration of President Duterte . Gonzaga is aligned with the opposition party Partido Reporma (Reporma) of former House Speaker Davao del Norte 1st District Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez, former Duterte ally turned critic.

After initially supporting the ticket of Senator Panfilo Lacson for president and SenatorTito Sotto for vice president in the 2022 election, Alvarez and Reporma have shited support to the tandem of Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Kiko Pangilinan against the UniTeam of former Senator Bongbong Marcos, for president. and for vice president, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, daughter of President Duterte.

To backstop her vice presidential bid, the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), a regional party founded by Mayor Sara, is playing an active role in the Davao de Oro politics and has fielded a full slate headed by incumbent governor Jayvee Tyron Uy, son of Chiongkee, who is sliding down to an unopposed run for vice goernor.

The May 9 election in Davao de Oro is a battle between Inday Sara’s HNP and Alvarez’s Reporma: Gonzaga has fielded his politically neophyte wife, former Court of Appeals associate justice Dorothy Gonzaga (Reporma), for governor against comebacking former governor Chiongkee (HNP).

In the Second District, Gonzaga {Reporma) is gunning for his third and last term against former governor Jose Caballero {HNP); in the First District, Maricar Zamora (HNP), incumbent vice goverrnor and former representative, is up against Reporma’s Monkayo vice mayor Joanna Gentugaya.

DAVAO DE ORO: GOV. TYRON LIKENS GONZAGAS, OTSO INIDORO TO NEW PEOPLES ARMY

Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy accused Rep. Ruwel Peter Gonzaga, his wife Dorothy Gonzaga and their propagandist, the fake media group Otso Inidoro , of supporting the New Peoples Army (NPA) propaganda to discredit the government, through the lies they hurl at the local government.

They are like the NPA. They want to destroy the trust and confidence of the people on government through dirty politics and black proppaganda, said Uy on Friday,April 1, in an interview broadcaster Allan Abais.

The interview was also broadcast in the radio program “Bakbak – Isyu Por Isyu”on Tagum City, Davao del Norte-based RPFM 99.9 FM radio.

“Try me,” said the governor in an interview with FM radio station ZRadio onThursday, March 24.

Gov. Uy is running for vice governor in the May 9 elections under the banner of the HNP , the regional party of presidential aspirant Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

Remember I am also the chairman of the Provincial Peace and Order Council , said the governor hinting that he has a mandated authority to maintain peace and order in the province.

Gov. Uy dished out the warning against Mayor Gonzaga following alleged harassment by the followers of the Mawab mayor against HNP supporters.

He did not give details but added that he has created a monitoring team to investigate and prevent similar incidents involving politicians like Mayor Gonzaga.

The Mawab mayor is seeking reelection inder the banner of the opposition Reporma Party . His brother, Davao de Oro 2nd District Rep. Ruwel Peter Gonzaga, although Davao de Oro chair of a faction of the ruling PDP-Laban, has aligned with the Reporma and has fielded a hybrid PDP-Laban/Reporma slate for the coming election.


The congressman has fielded his wife, neophyte politician former Court of Appeals associate justice Dorothy Gonzaga against comebacking former governor senior Provincial Board member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy, Gov. Uy’s father.

Mayor Duterte, who us running under the flag of the UniTeam with standard bearer former senator Bongbong Marcos, has endorsed the Walang Iwanan Team led by the Uys.

OMBUDSMAN: No extortion, corruption case vs. Davao de Oro’s Chiongkee Uy

The Office of the Ombudsman in Mindanao has no record of any complaint filed against Davao de Oro Provincial Board member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy, belying reports that an alleged case of corruption and extortion has been filed by overstaying Chinese national Yuehui Li against the former governor.

The report about the Ombudsman case against Uy has been widely propagandized for many months now by a group publicly known as “Otso Inidoro,” which openly claim as the media outfit of Team Gonzaga and RPG Team of Davao de Oro 2nd District Rep. Peter Ruwel Gonzaga.

Uy, who is running for governor against former associate justice of the Court of Appeals Dorothy Gonzaga, wife of Gonzaga, in the May election, has said the claim, now discredited by Ombudsman, is part of black propaganda against him and son Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy.
In the alleged complaint with the Ombudsman, as broadcast by the Otso Inidoro radiomen, Li, who is engaged in a desilting and dredging project in Nabunturan town that recovered gold dusts drained downstream into Naboc River from gold processing plants in the minesites of Davao de Oro, claimed that Uy demanded P1.5 million a month and gold shares from Li’s business.
Gonzaga himself has claimed that such a case has been filed with the Ombudsman by Li, who has been arrested by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) as an illegal alien.
“The public should not believe the claim of congenital liars Gonzaga and his Otso Inidoro paid hacks about the case as the records of the Ombudsman denied that there is such a case filed against Provincial Board member Uy,” said the camp of the former governor in a statement dated March 10.
“The false claim about the Ombudsman case against PB member Uy is but one of the many lies and black propaganda invented by the fertile but dirty imagination and phantasy of Gonzaga, and peddled by his Otso Inidoro paid hacks, to save his corrupt image and destroy Uy and Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy, ” said the statement.

The Otso Inidoro is a group of eight radio broadcasters who are not credited by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkasters ng Pilipinas (KBP) noted for black propaganda against the Uys and promoting Gonzaga in block time radio programs in several Tagum City-based FM radio stations.
The broadcasters are listed in the payroll of the Davao del Norte Provincial Capitol under the office of Governor Edwin Jubahib, with monthly salaries of from P15,000 to P30,000.
Politics explain why Otso Inidoro is doing propaganda work in Davao de Oro even as they are paid by the office of Jubahib.
Although they belong to separate parties, Jubahib (Reporma) and Gonzaga (PDP-Laban) are allies of former House Speaker Davao del Norte 1st District Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez, chairman of the opposition Reporma party.
Uy is a stalwart of the Hugpong Ng Pagbabago (HNP) of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, which gravitates around the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Laban (PDP- Laban) chaired by President Rodrigo Duterte.
As the alleged case filed against Uy in the Ombudsman is a regular topic of discussion by the Otso Inidoro radiomen, Gonzaga has also claimed a case against Uy has been filed with the anti-graft body. He vowed to initiate a legislative investigation by the Hoouse on the Ombudsman complaint, when interviewed on radio on March 10 by one of the Otso Inidoro broadcasters.
Even the interpreter of Li, Odette Valmonte, who was also arrested by immigration agents when Li was nabbed in Panabo City on March 5, talked about the Ombudsman case in a radio interview vowing to bring up the case against Uy up to President Rodrigo Duterte.

The congressman’s intervention has led the Bureau of Immigration to investigate if Gonzaga could be charged with harboing an illegal alien in violation of the Immigration Law. Li had gone into hiding with Valmonte for two months until his arrest in Panabo City by virtue of a Nission Order issued by Bureau of Immigration Commissiner Jaime Morente.
The camps of Uy and Gonzaga are gearing up for battle in the May 9 election.
Gonzaga, even as he is the Davao Region chair of the ruling PDP-Laban chaired by President Duterte, has organized a hybrid slate with the opposition party Reporma chaired by Alvarez, former Duterte political ally turned foe and vocal critic, against the Uy-led HNP of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.
Gonzaga has fielded his wife, Dorothy Gonzaga (Reporma) against comebacking former governor Uy in the gubernatorial race; and former Mt. Diwata barangay captain Franco Tito (Reporma) vs. Gov. Jayvee Tyron Uy, son of Chiongkee Uy, in the vice governor race. Gonzaga’s reelection is being challenged by former governor Jose Caballero (HNP) .

IMMIGRATION CHIEF MORENTE’S ‘HOCUS-POCUS’ ORDER VS. OVERSTAYING ORDER SLAMMED

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has been accused of anomaly in the arrest of an overstaying Chinese national, that was allegedly carried out through the influence of a politician.

The Mission Order against Yuehei Li was issued by Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente.

The Chinese national was arrested in Panabo City in Davao del Norte on March 5, 2022, together with his Filipina interpreter, Odette Valmonte.

Valmonte said the arrest was illegal and carried out under the influence of a politician with connivance of immigration agents.

“Naa gyod milagro sa immigration (There is something fishy in the Bureau of Immigration), ” said Valmonte in an interniew with an FM radio station broadcasting out of Tagum City in Davao del Norte, on Wednesday March 9.

She said Li was arrested even as Morente’s order was only for verification and no arrest.

“Verification lang walay aresto nga mahitabo (Verification only without arrest),” she said.

She maintained that Li is innocent , adding that the Chinese was falsely accused of submitting to the bureau a fake government receipt and for having misdeclared himself as a Japanese national in a document.

Valmonte was interviewed a day after her release by Panabo police after the Panabo City prosecution office dismissed for lack of probable cause three counts of violation of the ImmigrationLlaw filed by the BI. Li is under detention by BI as of presstime,

Harboring an an illegal alien was among the charges slapped against the long-time interpreter of Li.

An incident report on the arrest of Li said that Valmonte attempted to help in the escape attempt of Li by ferreting out the alien through the back of the house they rented.

The arrest of Li has dragged Davao de Oro Rep. Ruwell Peter Gonzaga as a potential subject in a harbing case after reportedly taking Li into his custody while the overstaying alien was first investigated by the Nabunturan police on February7, 2022.

In the interview, Valmonte tagged the Morente order as a “hocus-pocus” order.

“Naa sa sulod sa immigration, naay hocus-pucos. Naay nagpaluyo base sa information (There is hocus-pocus inside immigration with somebody behind, based on information),” she said.

Valmonte did not name names, but she was clearly refering to Davao de Oro former governor now Provincial Board member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy.

Li, engaged in a dredging and desilting project to recover gold dusts drained down from gold mining sites to Naboc River in Nabunturan town in Davao de Oro, is well-publicized as the central figure in the extortion and graft and corruption case filed against Uy in the office of the Ombudsman.

CREDIT-GRABBER GONZAGA A LIAR ON CLAIM HE CO-AUTHORED MALASAKIT CENTER BILL

Davao de Oro Rep. Ruwel Peter Gonxaga lied through his teeth when he claimed he co-authored the landmark Malasakit Center bill in the House of Representatives.

Records of the House of Representatives do not show Gonzaga as co-author of House Bill 5477

The Second District congressman, who is seeking reelection in the May 9 polls, said he should also be credited for the Malasakit Center , as he comes under fire ffor his lack of programs for his indigent constituents.

While Gonzaga claimed he co-authored the Malasakit Center measure, his name does not appear in the records of the House as a co-author.

The sponsors of the proposed bill were Reps. Joey Salceda, Wes Gatchalian, Angelina Tan and Emmarie Ouano-Dizon.

The credit-grabbing posturing of Davao de Oro Second District Rep. Ruwel Peter Gonzaga, comes as the Malasakit Center program draws tsunamis of praises for its originator Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go.

“Dili man nang Malasakit Center mahimo nga balaod kung si Senator Bong Go lang (The Malasakit Center could not have become a law with only Senator Bong Go),” said Gonzaga in a radio interview with a Tagum City-based FM radio station. READ MORE
