Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba on Friday said defeated Liberal Party presidential bet Mar Roxas will get zero votes in his hometown of Tuao if Roxas opts to run for senator in 2019.
The Cagayan politiko, the newly sworn in provincial chairman of the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), said Roxas “betrayed” him during the 2016 elections.
“Saka alam ‘nyo ‘yung nangyari sa akin noong election, kung paano ako tinraydor. Ako, you treat me the way I should treat you. Kung hindi ako magtraydor sa ‘yo, huwag mo akong traydorin. Wala pang president na trinaydor ako,” he said.
Mamba said Roxas’ wife, broadcaster Korina Sanchez, and Quezon City 6th District Representative Kit Belmonte talked to his two political rivals in the Cagayan gubernatorial race.
“Kaya nga nagpasabi si Mar sa akin na tatakbo raw siyang senador. Sabihin ninyo sa kanya ah, zero siya sa Tuao. Just to tell him never treat people who are good and loyal to you the way you treat me in the last election,” Mamba said.
