Kris Aquino declares ‘lifelong gratitude, respect’ for uncle Danding Cojuangco
The former presidential daughter revealed she has the utmost respect for her uncle Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco.
True enough, Kris Aquino came to the rescue of the San Miguel Corp. chairman and cleared him of allegations he was involved in the murder of her dad, Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. in 1983.
“@9nodoubt7 I will categorically say not DANDING COJUANGCO Kawawa sya because again being used as a convenient scapegoat. My uncle danding has my lifelong gratitude and respect. #TRUTH,” @krisaquino said in response to a netizen’s comment on her Ig post.
Cojuangco is a cousin of former president Corazon Aquino, mom of Kris.
The relationship between the Aquinos and Danding Cojuangco were strained during Marcos rule.
Danding was one of the allies of then president Ferdinand Marcos.
