A group of youth leaders demands for the resignation of Communications Asst. Sec. Mocha Uson amid accusations that she spreads fake news.
In a 10-page complaint filed by the Akbayan Youth at the Office of the Ombudsman, they are accusing Asec. Mocha of grave misconduct, serious dishonesty and conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service because she allegedly proliferates fake news.
According to the Akbayan Youth, Uson has no right to assume office at the PCOO, because she is “ignorant” of the Constitution and even the geography of the Philippines.
The group also insisted that as long as Uson remains in PCOO, she is a threat to the security of those who are against the Duterte administration.
As an example, the group mentioned Uson’s alleged post in her personal blog dated November, 2016 wherein the official mentioned that students from St. Scholastica’s College were obliged to join rallies.
Uson became controversial recently after she mistakenly placed Mt. Mayon in Naga City and not Albay.
