Caught in the middle: Inday Sara wants hands off Alvarez-Floirendo drama


She would rather be an observer watching the real-life teleserye unfold, with a bowl of humba in hand.

Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio dipped her finger into the ongoing spat between friends turned foes House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and fellow Davao del Norte Rep. Antonio “Tonyboy” Floirendo, Jr., but only to say that she didn’t want to get invovled in the whole case.

The politiko posted Viber messages that had her look like a mediator of sorts betewen the two camps, whose squabble has landed the pages of newspapers which allegedly started with a fight between their girlfriends. This evovled to Alvarez filing a graft case versus Floirendo before the Office of the Ombudsman last week.

For Duterte, she would rather stay as an impartial third-party observer.

“[A]s you know, private airplanes, girlfriends and cat fights are not our thing,” she said. How intense!
