Former Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Roy Cimatu
MANILA – Malacañang has confirmed the appointment of former Armed Forces of the Philippines chief of staff, Roy Cimatu as President Rodrigo Duterte’s new cabinet member.
According to Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella, Cimatu has been assigned as the special envoy for overseas Filipino worker (OFW) refugees.
When President Duterte visited the Middle East, he mentioned his plans of making Cimatu a cabinet member.
Yesterday, in the president’s speech at the Palarong Pambansa 2017 in San Jose Buenavista, Aklan, the president said he gave heavier tasks to Cimatu.
“Roy Cimatu is an Ilocano. Many, many years ago he was assigned in a division in Davao and we got acquainted there. And if things would not go well, he is a candidate for another… Now he’s a cabinet member. But this time I’d transfer him to a busier job,” Pres. Duterte said. — UNTV News & Rescue
