Senator Manny Pacquiao is in an ongoing conflict with his former ally, President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte publicly challenged Pacquiao to prove his statement that there is corruption in the current administration. The President also threatened to campaign against Pacquiao and brand him as a liar if he is unable to back up his claim.
Amid the conflict, Senate President Tito Sotto defended the boxer-politician, expressing his bewilderment that some people are angry at the latter’s statement about corruption.
Sotto tweeted: “Bakit ba sila nagagalit Kay Manny pag sinasabing may corruption sa govt? Bakit, wala ba?”
Manny Pacquiao is an eight-division world boxing champion, considered one of the greatest boxers in history. He also found success as a politician, first becoming a congressman before getting elected as a senator.
The boxer is married to Jinkee Pacquiao and they have five children – Jimuel, Michael, Mary, Queen Elizabeth, and Israel Pacquiao.
In a previous report by KAMI, Jinkee Pacquiao shared photos of Israel Pacquiao’s sweet moments with Mommy Dionisia, the mother of Manny. Jinkee also thanked Mommy D for spending quality time with her grandchild.
Jinkee’s name also caught the attention of netizens due to Lolit Solit’s viral post about her. The entertainment reporter said that there is no problem with Jinkee showing off her expensive possessions because her husband worked hard for many years to provide her those items. Albeit their fame and fortune, the members of the Pacquiao family never forget to share their blessings with other people!
