Clad in dirty red varsity jacket, white cap and shades, a man who claims to be the former boyfriend of Mocha Uson plans to run as a senator this coming 2019 elections.

Anson Tuana, 42, of Naga City, who works as a junk collector in Everlasting junkshop in Quezon City owned by his brother said that he will file his certificate of candidacy (CoC) to run as an independent candidate.

His advocacies include the lowering of prices of diesel, rice and electricity.

He also claimed that he was one of the security officers of Pope John Paul II when he visited the country during the time of President Fidel Ramos.

“Security volunteer ako nung World Youth Day. Tinawagan ako ni President Fidel Ramos,” he said.

Tuana has not yet filed his COC because he was still processing the requirements, he said.

“Nanawagan ako kay Duterte na kunin niya akong senador niya,” he said.

Tunana also claimed to be the ex-boyfriend of Mocha Uson during the time Uson was still part of Mocha girls. He said that they met in a bar in Quezon City.

“Matagal na kasi ‘yun at saka mabilis lang yung relationship namin, hindi ko sure kung makikilala niya pa ako,” he said.

Former Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson, earlier said that she also seeks to run as an independent candidate in the upcoming 2019 elections.

“Okay lang sa akin kung siya ang manalo, susuportahan ko siya pati na rin si Bong Go at Bato,” Tuana said.
