FB posts expose Leni’s rallies attended by hakot crowd

MANILA — Contrary to the claims of Leni Robredo’s camp that all the attendees in her rallies were genuine volunteers and supporters, viral videos are emerging on social media showing unwilling followers being pulled and bribed to attend their political events.

In a post on the Pinoy Got Skillz Facebook page that received 2.9 million views, a group of men affixed a Leni-Kiko sticker on a car, had fun recording a video of a woman and asked who they would truly vote for.

“Hi Guys, sino ba iboboto niyo?” The videographer said, and the man carrying the sticker with large Leni- Kiko’s face said, “Si BBM, trabaho lang, walang personalan,”.

In another post on Pinoy Got Skillz Facebook page that garnered half a million views, a male student appeared to being ridiculed by his elder sister while donning a t-shirt, mask, and ID with photographs of Leni.

The event was held in Malolos City, Bulacan, and was attended by mothers of students who were promised higher grades if they will attend the gathering.

“Oy ano yan, oyyyyy solid maka-Leni, oy pati ID, pati ID? Ay iba din,” she glanced at the camera and yelled “BBM, BBM, BBM” with the peace sign, “Sorry po nay BBM po kami,” they replied.

In another post on the same FB page, which has been viewed by more than 1 million people, a male elderly citizen was asked whether Leni is truly the one he supports; the old man said, “Marcos ang president ko, Vice si Inday,” he was asked again, “eh bakit Leni yang suot mong t-shirts?” he again replied, “para may pang-inum lang.”

These posts reinforced beliefs that Leni’s rallies were actually attended by the so-called hakot crowd who was asked by her staff to join the event in exchange for P500 fee , many of whom are yet to be paid.

Supporters of other candidates are now challenging Robredo to lead a caravan and show that the people who attend her rallies were not paid and are indeed her true supporters.

Netizen Jaime Sabilacut said, “Ramdam na ramdam mo pagmamahal ng tao kay Leni ah, ayaw nila napapagod si Nanay kaya nagtago ang mga tao, ayaw nilang madumihan yung kamay ni Leni, tama yan iwas-iwas tayo sa kanya hanggang eleksiyon hahaha.”

“Nakikiramay po kami sa yumaong kaluluwa, sana po maging tahimik kayo kung san man kayo pupunta tulad kung gaano katahimik ang caravan na yan ng Nanay niyo.” Cherry Magsilang commented. (ai/mtvn)
