Actress and comedienne Pokwang applauded President Rodrigo Duterte for recognizing Vice President Leni Robredo’s efforts to help people affected by the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) due to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a public address late Friday night, Duterte said Robredo did nothing wrong when she asked for donations to help health workers.

He also slammed the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission’s (PACC) move to probe Robredo for “competing with the national government’s efforts against the pandemic”.

Kaya nung narinig ko sinabi ko (That’s why when I heard it, I said), ‘Fire him.’ As of this moment, he is no longer connected with the government,” he added.

Pokwang shared on Instagram a quote from Duterte’s speech where he questioned the PACC’s proposed investigation.

“May panahon na criticize ko si Leni. Pero itong panahong ito, wala naman kasalanan ‘yong Vice President, nag ano nga magtulong. Bakit mo paimbestiga?”

(There are times when I have criticized Leni. But this time, the Vice President has no fault, she is even helping. Why will you have her investigated?)

This caught many by surprise as the president has consistently put down and belittled VP Robredo on several public occasions.

Celebrities like Lauren Young reacted to the news on social media.

For her part, Pokwang is doing the best she can to extend assistance to our fellow kababayans affected in this pandemic.
