Leni supporters attempted to get credit from DSWD relief goods, says journalist
Journalist Inday Espina-Varona on her Facebook account revealed that the supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo tried to give the credit for the relief goods for typhoon Nina victims from the Department of Social Welfare and Development to the Vice President’s office.
The relief goods, according to the Facebook page Bangon Naga were “coursed through the Office of the Vice President”.
Espina-Varona said that this is one way for Leni’s supporters to “destroy their heroine”.
She said another news outlet reported packs being prepared in the Robredo residence.
“Another Bangon Naga post shows “On going packing of relief goods at Robredo residence.”
“You should have left it at that. (Bangon Naga seems to be a semi-official page for disaster relief; it has posts announcing where to send donations in city hall, etc),”she said.
She however said that that there is no sign that the VP has been repacking the DSWD goods to distribute as her own donation.

Noel Leyco is a person I trust. But I still double checked to see first-hand an FB post he had complained of. Yup. Bangon Naga, the FB page, actually claimed that DSWD relief goods were “coursed through the Office of the Vice President.” https://www.facebook.com/BangonNAGA/ SCREENCAPs by me.
Noel Leyco notes: “her soc med operatives went busy giving the VP a desperate spin by falsely representing DSWD relief packs as having been coursed thru the Office of the Vice President. DSWD works with the LGUs by pre-positioning these relief goods for immediate distribution to the victims once the forecasted typhoon struck!”
Ugh. That’s how you destroy your heroine, folks. (Meron pang iba, mangaaway lang ng DDS, itong misrepresentation pa ang nilagay, haaaay. With friends like you, Leni doesn’t need enemies)

CAVEAT — pls do NOT jump to conclusions. No sign that DSWD stocks have ended up in the Robredo repacking operation. Those are two separate posts.
