VP Leni Robredo and Late Husband Jesse were Appointed in the Cabinet on the Same Day


Whether it’s bizarre coincidence or divine providence, Vice President Leni Robredo and her late husband Jesse Robredo were appointed as cabinet officials on the same day: July 7.

Robredo pointed it out on Facebook. “Throwback. My post from exactly a year ago,” she wrote. “And this is when it really gets ‘creepy’ (for lack of a better term): Jesse was invited to join P-Noy’s Cabinet on July 7, 2010, after weeks of speculation. His formal appointment came a day or two later.”

On the same day, six years later, President Duterte called Robredo and offered her a position as secretary of Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC). It was the same post held by previous Vice Presidents Noli de Castro and Jejomar Binay. 

Critics and supporters of Robredo praised her appointment as the head of HUDCC

Before entering politics, she offered free legal services to marginalized sectors and created non-profit organizations to help the poor. She was even dubbed “Mother of People’s Plan” for helping informal settlers transfer from slums to residential areas with better living conditions.
