Duterte joins ex-wife’s birthday celebration


Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte took a break from the campaign trail to spend time with his former wife, who is celebrating her 68th birthday on Thursday, April 14.

A video posted on Biyaheng Duterte Facebook page showed the leading presidential candidate sitting beside Elizabeth Zimmerman inside a restaurant in Lapu-Lapu City.

“Good health, and may she live for a thousand years,” said Duterte when asked about his birthday wish for Zimmerman, who skipped radiation treatments for cancer to personally convince people to vote for Duterte on May 9.

Duterte and Zimmerman were married for 25 years.

The former couple were blessed with three children, namely: Paolo, Inday Sara and Sebastian.
