A group of Filipinos working in South Africa reportedly heckled Vice President Leni Robredo when she was about to deliver her speech to a group of Filipino women.
In news published South African newspaper Daily Dispatch, it says “a Filipino man who was not supposed to be there, insulted the Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo. The man shouted in foreign language (Filipino), and later he asked Robredo to resign as VP”
“The crowd went wild when police escorted the man out of the hall. Most of the women defended the man and the incident became chaotic when people started throwing light objects to the Vice President who was still on stage”, the paper added.
Robredo was escorted by authorities and left the scene peacefully. She met the group, but the even went wrong when they insulted and accused her of shaming her country”, the newspaper said.
Other news sources also said the Robredo did not expect that she is not welcomed by the group that she supposed to meet.
“Someone from the crowed was overheard shouting “traitor” to the Philippine vice president”, another paper, Cape Today published.
Robredo Sen. Francis Pangilinan, and other members of Liberal Party were in South Africa for various meetings, mostly with OFWs and immigrants.
Since the group has no local media escort, all news reports about the incident will be fully verified before it could be published through local main stream media. /Leandro Tupaz/Disclaimer: Contributed articles does not reflect the view of Okd2.com.
