Senate witness: Ex-Pres. Duterte and VP Sara get guns from Pastor Quiboloy

A witness who attended the hearing of the committee chaired by Senator Risa Hontiveros said that former President Rodrigo Duterte and his daughter, Vice President Sara Duterte, allegedly obtained guns in bags from Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC).

In the continuation of the hearing of the Senate Committee on Women, Children, Family Relations, and Gender Equality this Monday, the witness who was hidden under the Alias ​​”Rene,” said that the Duterte father and son allegedly got the weapons from “Glory Mountain” where they used to he is a landscaper.


“Ako po ay naging landscaper ni Quiboloy sa Glory Mountain at doon ko na po naranasan ang pananakit mismo sa kamay ni Quiboloy… Sa Glory Mountain, ‘pag dumadating si Quiboloy sakay ng chopper, may dala po siya na malalaking bag na laman po ang iba-ibang uri ng baril at nilalatag po ito sa tent na katabi po ng mansyon niya,” said Rene.

“Minsan po pumupunta doon din si former President Rodrigo Duterte at former Davao mayor Sara Duterte. ‘Pag umaalis na sila doon sa Glory Mountain, dala na po nila yung mga bag na siya pong bag na nilalagyan po ng mga baril,” he added.

The Glory Mountain, allegedly owned by Quiboloy, can be seen in Davao City, a well-known bastion of the Dutertes.

In Rene’s testimony to the committee, he also said that KOJC offers fake scholarships to encourage young people to join the group.

Rene’s story is that when he became “full-time” at KOJC, he was ordered to beg in the streets, plazas, and restaurants and was given a “quota” of P3,000 per day that had to be earned.

It is said that Rene began to doubt KOJC when he became a youth leader and was tasked with recruiting young people to join their religious group who would also beg.


In Glory Mountain, Rene allegedly experienced pain from Quiboloy when he was not satisfied with his work as a landscaper.

In 2020, Rene said that he asked to go home because of the pain he experienced from Quiboloy, but he was not allowed. Instead, he was assigned as the personal assistant of a person named Jun Andrade, who is said to be a high official of the KOJC.

This time, she experienced sexual abuse.

Rene reported to KOJC Executive Secretary Eleanor Cardona, but she scolded and slapped him.

Hontiveros’ committee is investigating the alleged human trafficking and sexual abuses involving Quiboloy and KOJC.
