After the senatorial aspirant Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa biopic was shown in movie theaters, the life stories of two more senatorial candidates endorsed by President Rodrigo Duterte will be presented tonight, February 9, in television. One is the story of Christopher “Bong” Go which will be aired on the longest running drama anthology, Malaala Mo Kaya (or MMK) in ABS-SBN. The other is the story of Francis Tolentino and his experience with Typhoon Ompong which will be aired at Net 25.
Both stories will air at 8:30 in the evening. Tolentino’s story, however, will be aired in two parts. The second part will be aired on February 10 at 7:00 in the evening.
Bong Go earlier served President Duterte as the Executive Assistant when the latter was still Davao City Mayor, and rose become the President’s Special Assistant.
Tolentino, on the other hand, earlier served as Mayor of Tagaytay City and became the Chairman of the Metro Manila Development Authority. In 2016, he ran for senator but lost due to the “twerk scandal” when he hired the PLAYGIRLS to perform during his brother’s campaign.
Because of the scandal, Tolentino resigned as MMDA Chairman and removed himself from the Liberal Party in the 2016 elections.
The PLAYGIRLS is a dancers’ group known for their raunchy performance.
