Sharon Cuneta Defends Husband Kiko Pangilinan from Detractors

Sharon Cuneta released a statement via Facebook on March 5.

Cuneta said her husband Senator Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan never benefited financially from being a public servant.

In her post she said: ‘Lord, I pray that someday soon, You will allow people who are so quick to judge, the chance to see just how pure my husband’s heart and intentions are for the country.’

‘That he, like You have taught us, wants only justice and fairness.’

She said that her family never benefited financially not even a peso added to our pockets in all the years he has been a public servant, but instead have done nothing but give — not just of our treasure, but our sacrifices, our hearts, our souls.

She added: ‘May people come up to our children someday to say only how Kiko has impacted their lives positively; how proud they should be to have such a Godly and upright man for their father, no matter his imperfections as a human being.’

The Mega star did not specify what exactly spurred her statement for her husband from detractors.

The senator has been taking some heat following a series of events in Philippine politics recently.

Senator Kiko, along with Senators Risa Hontiveros and Bam Aquino, have been ousted from their respective senate committee chairmanships last February 27.

All of them are under the Liberal Party, who have been vocal about their opposition to certain policies of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

And Senator Kiko is currently the acting president of Liberal Party, the former ruling party during the administration of former President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III.

Sharon also shared, via her Facebook post, details of her three-night vacation with Senator Kiko in Hong Kong.

It was just like their ‘short but sweet honeymoon’ when they got married 21 years ago.
