After asking for unity, Mocha Uson promotes ‘Oust Leni’ hashtag

The #OustDuterte hashtag landed on top of Twitter trends Friday with the majority of netizens calling out the government for its obviously relaxed and poor handling of what WHO called an international health emergency.

  • Mocha Uson targets VP Leni Robredo anew.
  • #OustDuterte trended after the relaxed response of government on the nCov crisis.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Deputy Administrator Mocha Uson strikes again. This time, she was promoting the Oust Leni hashtag in reference to Vice President Leni Robredo.

In a tweet Saturday, February 1, 2020, Mocha promoted the hashtag #OustLeni2020 on Twitter, asking whether mainstream media will pick it up.

“#OUSTLENI2020 trending na. Ang tanung ibabalita kaya ito ng mga mahilig sa meryenda ni Leni?,” she tweeted

Ironically, just yesterday, Uson called for unity amidst the threat of Novel Coronavirus (nCov) in the country.

In her tweet, Uson asked everyone to just unite and stop politicizing the nCov crisis.

“Sana ay magtulungan nalang kesa sa pinupulitika pa ang mga ganitong bagay.”

Apparently Mocha’s tweet was ignited by the Twitter outrage that asked for the government’s accountability on its slow response to the threat of coronavirus.

On Thursday, January 30, the Department of Health confirmed the first case of nCov in the country.

A 38-year old Chinese woman tested positive with the novel coronavirus and is currently confined in a government hospital in Manila.

Prior to the first confirmed case, most Filipinos have called for the government to ban the entry of all Chinese from mainland China to prevent the possible spreading of the virus. But even as the DOH has confirmed its first case in the country, the government remained adamant about not wanting to possibly affect diplomatic ties rather than protect Filipinos from the epidemic.

DOH Sec. Francisco Duque and Senator Bong Go were in unison saying it’s not yet time to ban entry of Chinese from mainland China to the Philippines.

“Sa ngayon, wala pa pong desisyon ang ating Pangulo na i-ban yung pagpasok ng lahat ng Chinese nationals kasi hindi lang naman po ang China ang tinamaan ng virus na ito. May ibang bansa rin po na tinamaan. It will not be proper if we will single out on China alone,” said Go.

“If we do this, then the concerned country — China in this case ​—​​​​​​ might question why we’re not doing the same for other countries that have reported confirmed cases of novel coronavirus,” said Duque.

Meanwhile, here are other #OustDuterte tweets signaling people’s disgust and outrage with the government’s actions with regards to novel coronavirus.
