A new blog called We Are Collective has doing some rounds in social media for revealing delicate information to netizens. One of this revelation pertains to the brother of the deceased husband of Vice President Leni Robredo, Jesse Robredo, named Jose ‘Butch’ Manalastas Robredo.
According to the blog, this guy is one of the big time drug lords in the city of Naga, Bicol region, the constituents of the Robredos.
Although the blog didn’t actually reveal in just one news article. But the revelation, we can call insinuation, is included in its long essay about the Robredos titled ‘DECEPTION: The Shocking Truth About Jesse and Leni Robredo’. The article also includes the history of Jesse and wife VP Leni in their hey days in Naga City.
Mocha Uson Blog also posted about it its Facebook page:
Ayon sa blog ng WE ARE COLLECTIVE si Jose “Butch” Manalastas Robredo na kapatid ni Jesse Robredo, brother in law ni LENI ay ang pinakamalaking drug lord sa NAGA. Sana ito ay sagutin ni LENI. Mam YES OR NO lang naman ang sagot hindi niyo pa po sagutin.
VP Leni Robredo responded to the accusations by the blog We Are Collective:
“Yung paglabas ng kung anong leaks yan, ito ay attempt para i-silence tayo.”
(“The appearance of these supposed leaks is an attempt to silence us.”)
“Ilang beses na itong ginawa dati. Hindi nagtagumpay. At kahit anong gawin, hindi ito magpapatahimik sa atin.”
(“They have done this before. They didn’t succeed. And no matter what they do, they can’t silence us.”)
