President Rodrigo Duterte announced on Monday that his Malacañang employees will receive P50,000 Christmas bonuses when he learned that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte would be giving P50,000 to Davao City Hall employees.

“So, hindi tayo magpalugi sa Davao. Sabi ko wala akong pakialam magnakaw ka na, dispakulhin mo ‘yang pera basta gawain mong P50k. It’s gonna be P50k. Okay na ‘yan,” Duterte said.

Initially, the Office of the President will receive P40,000 as their bonus, but as soon as she learned that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, who was at the event, would be giving P50,000 to City Hall employees he raised it to P50,000.
