President Rodrigo Duterte confirmed that the firetrucks acquired from the Austrian government cost more than double the market rate for a firetruck.
In a speech Wednesday, Duterte said he fired Interior Secretary Mike Sueno in front of other Cabinet members for going to Austria and proceeding with the Austria firetruck deal which was already being challenged in the Supreme Court for being overpriced.
“Sabi ko bakit pumunta doon to sign, to buy it fire truck worth 18 million? Putang ina, anong klaseng sunog ‘yan? We’ll buy it at 7, 8. That’s the running price now over a fire truck made in Japan,” said Duterte.
“This guy has to go to sign despite the fact that the opinion of his lawyer, the legal officer of his office, says do not (sign),” said Duterte.
What made Duterte blow his top was Sueno’s insistence that he did not see the opinion of his legal officer during their confrontation in the Cabinet meeting. Duterte felt it was a bare-faced lie but he checked himself from hitting his former campaign booster.
“Gusto kong sampalin eh kaya lang nandiyan man sila ma’am. Sabi ko lang, ‘You’re fired. Go out of this office. I don’t need you’. I am not used to humiliating people but I really got pissed because he was lying,” said Duterte.

DUTERTE: P-NOY AT MAR ROXAS YELLOW DILG MAFIA SA LIKOD NG PAGPATALSIK KAY SEC SUENO
Grabe naman itong si Sueno. Naniwala sa YELLOW DILG MAFIA ni Mar Roxas. Dapat sila Usec Panadero at Asec Aldana ay naFREEZER nuon pa mang July 2016 pero habang tumatagal lalo pa silang lumakas sa bagong pasok na si Sueno. Nanalo sa halalan si Presidente Duterte sa likod ng ANTI CORRUPTION CAMPAIGN kaya punong TAGAWALIS si Sueno sa DILG. Yun lang pinili ni Sec Sueno ang PERA sa halip na pumanig sa KABUTIHAN. Dapat CHANGE IS COMING eh WALANG PAGBABAGO pala ang motto ni Sueno, Panadero at Aldana.
