Senator Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel made a most difficult
and painful public pronouncement in his entire life.
Pimentel announced last night that he had separated from his wife, Jewel May Lobaton.
Koko and his wife live for 12 years. They now live their separate lives since November 2011.
He already tried his best to resolve the differences for the sake of their children (two boys) but to no avail.
He is asking for prayers from his supporters and the understanding of their people whom he serves.
Despite his separation, he assures them that the situation will not affect his duties as senator.
