Will he go out of public eye? Duterte hurts hip after falling off motorbike – Panelo
President Rodrigo Duterte has complained of hip pain after falling off his motorcycle while riding around the Presidential Security Ground (PSG) Compound in Manila.
The motorcycle accident happened on Wednesday night, former Special Assistant to the President and now Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go announced on Thursday.
“Sumemplang kagabi (si President) habang nagmo-motor palabas ng PSG Compound,” the senator said in a text message to reporters.
“Sumasakit daw balakang,” he added.
Go said the 74-year-old President was resting at Bahay Pagbabago.
The accident came a day before his attendance to the 45th Philippine Business Conference and Expo in Ermita, Manila.
Duterte previously acknowledged that he is perpetually in pain due to a spinal injury he suffered from a previous motorcycle accident.
On Monday, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo assured the public that the Chief Executive is “perfectly healthy,” despite his health issues.
