GenSan resident disagrees Leni-Kiko, local media claim GenSan is pink, says teenagers went there to watch free RiverMaya concert


The photo below, which has been making the rounds on social media, is a drone shot of the crowd that attended the Leni-Kiko campaign rally in GENSAN.


Manila Bulletin and other local news networks has been sharing tight drone shots of every Leni-Kiko campaign rallies, apparently to give the public the impression that wherever Leni-Kiko team goes, they are huge crowd drawers.

Turned out, Kiko Pangilinan, Robredo’s VP tandem, was among the first to share the same photo of Manila Bulletin.

In a social media post, Pangilinan described the sight at the GenSan Oval Plaza “punong-puno” because people wants to show they are taking a stand with #Leni-Kiko2022.

However, a native of GenSan (General Santos) has taken to Facebook to prove Kiko Pangilinan’s claim that the Leni-Kiko team filled up the Oval Plaza in GenSan to make a stand with the #Leni-Kiko2022 tandem isn’t true.

John Mark Segovia Egay of General Santos City showed a satellite image of the GenSan Oval Plaza and the actual drone shot photo of the event to prove that Kiko was incorrect to say that the GenSan Oval Plaza was “punong-puno” during their campaign rally.

Below is the original caption of Egay in his FB post.

Para klaro jud ug masabtan unsa kadaghan ang tao nag gamit najud ug satellite ug drone ha. Ana man mo gusto nnyug research. Unta di mangaway! 🥺😂 To make it clear and easily understood by people the size of the crowd, I used a satellite and drone shot photos because Leni-Kiko supporters told him to do some research.

As of this writing, John Mark Segovia Egay’s FB post has been reposted by the FB page VOVph, eliciting positive reactions from netizens.

This netizen commented that the crowd who attended Leni-Kiko’s campaign rally in GenSan was not that huge as the photo shared by Kiko and Manila Bulletin wants the public to believe. She said she went there personally and saw the venue. Claimed that crowd consisted mostly of teenagers who went there to watch the River Maya concert. She also shared a photo she took at the venue. The rest are Magdalo and Anakbayan members.


Hindi totoo yan. Sa likod ako ng stage bumaba, nakita ko pa nga yung Magdalo, di ko alam kung si Trililing ba yun sumasakay ng suv. Ang luwag, nilakad ko pa ikot sa harap, panay mga tyangge na. Literal ang mga teenagers nasa harap ng stage at marami sa kanila mga BBM SARA! Hinabol talaga si River Maya. Namura pa at bat 3 kanta lang daw ☄️spotted Anakbayan. yan na malapit yan sa stage.


Another netizen GenSan echoed the sentiment of her kababayan from GenSan.
