MAGUINDANAO --- This news outfit learned today, Sept. 6,2019, from relatives that 61-year-old ethnic Iranun Miraga Awil Gambao died from a lingering illness at the Cotabato Regional Medical Center in Cotabato City and left some P200,000 worth of hospital bills.

Maguindanao 2nd District Rep. Esmael Mangudadatu, despite Gambao’s being from the 1st district of the province, provided his family with an initial 50,000 cash assistance and promised the hospital management to help find a way on how to settle the patient’s account.

Gambao is not even from the congressional district that Mangudadatu, governor of Maguindanao for three consecutive terms that spanned from June 30, 2019 to June 30 this year, is now representing in Congress.
