MANILA, Philippines – A Filipino netizen claimed that Mocha Uson is still receiving PHP130,000 per month from the government even though she already resigned from her post.
“I have a friend from the PCOO who told me na wala na nga si Mocha sa PCOO but instead ginawa siyang “consultant” sa Malacañang. Same salary Php130,000 & benefits pero wala na siyang office hours. She can work at home & pwede parin siyang sumama kay Du30 anywhere. Nakakagago diba?”, said by Martha Dizon.
Mocha Uson Resignation
Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson made a surprise announcement in Senate on October 3.
The controversial singer-turned-Cabinet official resigned from her position citing “threats” from several lawmakers over the approval of the Presidential Communications Operations Office’s (PCOO) budget.
She made the announced during her opening speech at the Senate hearing on PCOO’s budget for 2019.
“My own decision… Pinipigilan ng makakaliwang kongresista ang budget ng PCOO dahil lang sa akin…Matagal na po akong mapipiglan, pero ang last straw kumbaga ay ito ngang paggipit ng ilang kongresista sa budget ng PCOO,” she said in an ambush interview in Senate.
Uson recently drew flak over a number of controversial posts on her social media account with her blogger-friend Drew Olivar particularly a video of an alleged inappropriate presentation of federalism followed by another which irked the deaf community.
