MANILA - Outgoing Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales said while she is flattered there are mounting calls for her to seek public office, she knows her limit.

Morales, who is set to step down this month, said she will "certainly be visible" even after her term as the country's top graft investigator ends.

Asked if she is open to continuing her advocacies elsewhere, perhaps in the international arena, Morales said: "I cannot control my own destiny."

"For as long as I am strong, for as long as my mind is intact, I am not retiring into the sunset," she said.
