Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas now speaks about the incident that happened to him on a motorcycle while on his way to Dolores, Eastern Samar.
“If I did not go, they will ask why I did not. Now that I went, they ask why I had to go here,” the Secretary told ABS-CBN News Channel.
“I immediately made the decision to borrow a motorcycle from the people in the barangay. Because a motorcycle can easily be carried – I obtained my objective of getting to Dolores.”
“There were 12 people who died. There was no communication, no power. The cellular service was restored only an hour ago. Fifteen towns were badly hit. And that’s all they can talk about,” the Secretary added.
The photo of Roxas in a downed motorcycle circulated in social networking sites gathering mixed comments.
