Philippines: Baker Gives Away 7,000 Slices of Cake to Celebrate Duterte Inauguration

(Reuters) A Manila baker says he will stand by his promise to give away more than 7,000 slices of cake throughout Rodrigo Duterte’s six-year term as Philippine president after being inundated with requests when his offer went viral.

Quim’s Cafe owner Eliaquin Labang didn’t think much of Duterte or his election chances and said last year he would give away 5 million pesos ($106,000) worth of cake if the 71-year-old former prosecutor was elected.

Duterte was sworn in as the country’s 16th president on Thursday after his promises to crush crime won over the public in last month’s vote and left Labang inundated with demands for free treats.

The baker said he would give 50 slices twice a month through Duterte’s term to those who register online, a Facebook post that was liked more than 26,000 times.
