Ernesto Neri explains use of Visayan word, ‘Yawa’
Abogado Ernesto Neri could not help but curse at the state of the country. The abogado has been using the word, “Yawa” quite often in his tweets lately and he felt the need to explain himself.
I often use the bisayan expression of outrage “yawa” because I do not know what else to use in order to capture what I feel about the state of affairs in our country. Consider it a political expression. Yawa

Neri noted that its use is just a form of expression. The abogado added that he is just reacting to the current political climate and state that the Philippines is in.
The abogado asked the public and his followers to treat “Yawa” now as a political expression instead.
Yawa kasi mga nakaupo eh!
