Keisha Halili, a bewitching beauty captivating Davao del Norte Capitol, on Thursday morning made a surprising post on her Facebook with a raging intro: “My reputation is under attack.”
Keisha, prettiest talented news anchor cum host-emcee, continued: “For months, I’ve kept silent about the TRUE reason why I resigned. There are several truths, one of them includes my desire to focus on my master’s studies.”
“The other reasons involve my principles, my beliefs, that wherever you are, whatever position you may be, you should always do the right thing. I can’t reveal the other reasons just yet because I might be putting some individuals in harm’s way.”
She stated no reason in her resignation letter but only cited Ecclessiastes 3:1-8, which contains the beautiful phrases on a time for everything.
That post shocked unawares, fans of her being a provincial TV talent and stage beauty to have known that she had already resigned, and accordingly last September due to what she only hinted on her latest post dated Dec. 14, 2017. (Note: Keisha already deleted the post sometime Saturday, Dec. 16 but Mindanao Sun Chronicle managed to copy and paste it around 9:00 night of Friday, Dec. 15).
While she did not name a name who called her insane or who is spreading the lie around the Capitol, she posted on Nov. 14 in big letters:
“3 employees resign from an office one after the other in less than 5 months & their former boss spreads lies about why they left.”
Keisha, per her profile on Facebook, was Information Officer III under the Provincial Information Office. She is a graduate of AB Journalism from UP Diliman and she is on the way of acquiring her Master of Arts in Journalism at Ateneo. The PIO is currently headed by Sofonias “Ponyong” Gabonada.
Keisha added: “But a LIE is going around the Provincial Government of Davao del Norte. This is the ‘reason’ that some people have been told on why I left:”
“Buang si Keisha. Ayaw mo ug tuo sa iyang mga ginapang-ingon (Keisha is crazy. Don’t believe what she has to say)”
“I haven’t even said anything. 😛 I’ve been hearing this statement since the first week I resigned. I’d like to believe I left a good impression upon the Capitol, otherwise, people would have immediately believed that LIE and it would never have reached me. And if anybody did believe, well, they’ve been played for a fool.”
“You see, I didn’t write any reason in my resignation letter. I just wrote ‘Ecclessiastes 3:18.’ At that point, I was already very, very exhausted and I felt that those verses said everything. I just wanted to leave because I was NOT HAPPY anymore. But I was also very sad. I left so many projects and many opportunities behind. I left my officemates to carry on my tasks. I left a mission to change the image of the PIO for the better.”
“I was hoping I could live in peace and focus on building my career somewhere else. I get flattered when people tell me that I was such a loss to the Capitol and that things would never be the same without me. I would tell them that there are still some good people left. I am not everything.
I didn’t want to speak up about this at first. If it were up to the people around me, they would urge me to move on and let go. But I want to defend myself at least. I failed in defending my principles while I was inside, but at least I managed to escape with it intact.
My hands are trembling as I write this. Though I expected this kind of attack, I hoped I didn’t have to face it. It really pains me, not because it was spread. That’s easy to correct. Helloooo, kagwapa ba nako na buang! (Heloooo, am I not too pretty to be crazy?) 😛
What pains me most is that I know who has been spreading this. And I know very much why. Still, I can’t reveal the reason. A close friend can really be your worst enemy.
Anyway, I just wanted let that out. Now I know who my true friends are.
Keisha ended her deleted post with: “Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.” (mindanaosunchronicle.com/Cha Monforte)
What is in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8? We goggled and found out this:
New International Version (NIV)
A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
