Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson is now under fire after she was seen performing in a casino.
Uson, a member of the group Mocha Girls, and a vocal supporter of the Duterte Administration has been seen performing in the Bar 360 of Resort’s World Manila. Her boss, Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said the Malacañang is now checking the issue.
Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella also said that proper investigation will be launched.
“Policy needs to be complied with but, in this matter, it needs to be properly vetted,” said Abella.
The Memorandum Circular No. 6 of the Malacañang provides the prohibition of government employees, members of the armed forces, and aged under 21 and below from entering, staying, or playing in casinos.
“[The] mere entry or presence of government officials and employees in a gambling casino shall be considered as conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service, unless the same was in the performance of official duties and functions,” the memorandum said.
Uson was appointed as the Asec in May probably because of her massive social followers. It has been noted that her main task is to inform the public on the government activities and endeavors.
