VP Leni Robredo tells truth about fake story of her marrying NPA member at 15

The fake story said Robredo married an NPA member when she was 15 but he died during an encounter in the martial law era.

Vice President Leni Robredo was forced to clarify that she was never married to a communist rebel at the age of 15.

After her recent successful rallies, trolls claimed that most of her supporters were from the left-leaning movement such as the New People’s Army (NPA) without any basis. The opposition then pounced on it, leading more to believe that it was true.

It caught Robredo’s attention and she just had to make things clear. 

On facebook, she addressed the rumor.

“Hindi ako tinantanan ng fake news mula 2016 hanggang ngayon. I’ve been called many names – mandaraya sa election (hello??), lugaw, bobo, buntis, kabit, lutang, etc. Ni minsan, hindi ko hinayaan maging sagabal ito sa trabaho ko. Pinaghusayan ko pa din kahit pinapahirapan ako,” she wrote.

The fake story said Robredo married an NPA member when she was 15 but he died during an encounter in the martial law era.

“15 years old? 3rd year high school palang ako niyan. Lahat na high school classmates ko at college classmates ko can attest na never akong nag leave of absence at grumadweyt ako on time at the age of 21,” she said.

Robredo explained that she married her late husband Jesse twice at the age of 22.

“Nakilala ko si Jesse (Robredo) after graduation at kinasal kami TWICE when I was 22.

“Kung naniniwala ka pa, pagdadasal na lang kita,” she added.

The kakampinks see the move as another sign of desperation from the opposing camp.

Robredo also denied that she supports communist leader Jose Ma. Sison.

“Para klaro: kasinungalingan ito,” she said.

“Once and for all: Kaliwa, kanan, taas, baba, lahat handa tayong pakinggan — basta tapat, mapayapa, at handang magtrabaho para iangat ang buhay ng Pilipino,” Robredo added.

TsekPH, a collaborative fact-checking project for the 2022 Philippines elections, earlier found that Robredo and fellow presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos were the top candidates vulnerable to fake news. 


The only difference is that disinformation paints the dictator’s son in a good light while Robredo gets all the negatives.
