DUTERTE: DABAWENYAS GET RAPED BECAUSE THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL
President Rodrigo Duterte is not surprised why there is a high incidence of rape in his home city of Davao: There are many beautiful Dabawenyas.
Dishing out another rape joke on Thursday, August 30, in his speech at the charter celebration of Mandaue City, Duterte said: “Basta daghang guwapa, daghang rape (If there are many beautiful women, there are many rape cases).”
A report released by the Philippine National Police (PNP) showed that Davao City ranked first among major cities in the country with the highest number of reported rape cases (42), followed by Quezon City (41), Manila (32), Cagayan De Oro City (24), and Zamboanga City, (21).
Davao City police chief Senior Superintendent Alexander Tagum confirmed the report, but said that recorded rape cases in Davao City happened inside private dwellings, where police control and monitoring are weakest.
