Sen. Imee Marcos and Tanay Vice Mayor Lito Tanjuatco
TANAY, Rizal — Ano? Si Imee may iniindorsong kandidato (featured image) sa Tanay na kamaganak ng mga Aquino at tumatakbong mayor ngayon dito?
That’s right. Sa biglang tingin at kung hindi mo babasahing maigi ang artikulong ito maari kang makulong sa duda, kalituhan, pagkamangha, atbpa.
Ang kalituhang ito ay nagsimula sa post ng isang nagngangalang Vic Badaguas at kasamang Rodolfo Paclarin sa social media (FB) na sinusugan pa ng 16 na netizens.
Sabi ni Vic:
“Sen. Imee Marcos meets Tanay Vice Mayor Lito Tanjuatco at the Marcos old residence in San Juan City.
With VM Tanjuatco was his Municipal Administrator Dr. Ranillo Rodrigo G. Resuello.
It was a very fruitful meeting & exchange of pleasantries between them.
VM Tanjuatco pledged his support to the BBM-SARA UNITEAM.
The Tanjuatcos of Tanay are related to the former president the late Benigno Noynoy Aquino III.”
‘Yan ang mismong mga kataga ng kanyang post dakong alas-5 noong March 9 (Miyerkules).
Narito naman ang isang paglilinaw, na galing din sa ilalim ng naturang post, mula sa isa ring Tanjuatco.
Take it away Ria Tanjuatco-Trillo:
- VM Rafael Amonoy “Lito” Tanjuatco is not at all related to the late President Noynoy Aquino.
- There is only one branch of the Tanjuatco clan that is related to former President Noynoy Aquino.
That is the branch consisting of Emigdio G. Tanjuatco, Sr., and Paz Sumulong Tanjuatco. Paz Sumulong (Tanjuatco) and the mother of former President Corazon Aquino are sisters.
The children of Emigdio, Sr. and Paz are: Emigdio, Jr. (Ding) former Congressman, Juan Victor (Titong), Ma. Paz (Marita), and Jose (Lito), a different person with a different conviction from the aforesaid Vice Mayor bearing a similar nickname.
We are very proud and honored of our relationship by blood to former President Cory and former President Noynoy and by affinity to the great hero, the late Senator Ninoy Aquino.
- Admittedly, the clan of Emigdio, Sr. and Paz Sumulong are related, albeit distantly, to the Vice Mayor as mentioned.
AS THE SAYING GOES (AND WHICH IS VERY TRUE) — YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS BUT YOU CANNOT CHOOSE YOUR RELATIVES.
VM Rafael “Lito” Tanjuatco is not a relative of Former President Noynoy Aquino, not by any stretch of the imagination.
Which is which? We leave it your own judgement.
But one thing is clear: Ria is a sister of a Board Member, who, according to the grape vine, even after 20 long years in politics, people say, he never had a positive legacy to impart yet he is on the prowl for a higher office that is, as Representative of the New Second District of Rizal.
