CEBU CITY—President-elect Rodrigo Duterte last 26 June 2016 reiterated at a victory party in this city that he was going to order the killing of pushers.
In a 42-minute address, Incoming President Rodrigo Duterte told the audience of about 10,000 that he could not take all pushers and addicts off the streets and put them in jail or rehabilitation centers.

“Now I see children as young as one year old, 12 years old, being raped and dumped. I have a grandchild, can I be assured my grandchild will not become an addict? Can I really prevent things from happening if I am no longer around to prevent it,” Duterte added.
Killing was not right but he wished to be honest about how he wanted to address the problem of illegal drugs, Duterte said.
“This is why I am very mad, this is why I want to ensure this next generation, this is why I can’t make you understand, if I can’t ask you, I will really kill you,” he said in Cebuano.
