The worst of all the political killings that had happened in my country took place last Monday when the family and supporters of Toto Mangudadatu, together with a lot of media men, tried to file his candidacy when they were ambushed by armed people that are said to be under the command of Ampatuan Jr, the current mayor of that place.
As of the moment, there are 57 numbers of dead victims and there are quite numbers of people that are still missing and many believed that they are killed too and must be buried somewhere just like what had become of the other victims.
Political rivalry is the MAIN REASON of such tragedy wherein the thirst of political power and money are far more important than the lives of those innocent people. Mindanao had seen a lot of political killings, war and some problems but this incident is the worst of all. many international groups are condemning such acts especially that the government is somewhat too slow to respond about this matter.
Everybody is shouting for it. This incident should be a wake up call for us as well as for the government who seems to tolerate warlords,private army and mischievous actions that are done by these people for their own personal interest.
Let’s open our eyes and be more rational on dealing such isues like this.
