Rabusa on former AFP chiefs' anomalies

Since the issue about the 50 million pesos send-off money allegedly received by former AFP Chief of Staff Angelo Reyes came out, I can’t help but pity the ordinary police, navy and soldier who are always endangering their lives every day of their duty and yet higher officials are like lying in the bed of money that supposedly be evenly distributed to the institution as a whole. As this issue becomes bigger than before, were the Magdalo and marine stand-off justified?

If all these allegations are properly supported with hard evidence, I salute former military budget officer George Rabusa for divulging the information so that the government can make stern measures to protect the institution’s money. President Aquino has a lot of things to do when it comes to corruption. It seems that it is big and deeply rooted in many agencies of the government.

I just can’t help but ask myself how accounting is being done on the money in different government agencies and institutions. So sad to think that money is the reason for many people to aspire for public office. Personally, I don’t believe that money is the root of all evil. It is the evil that lies within oneself that make him to do evil.
