Vilma Santos' Involvement in Car Ambush Clarified by Luis Manzano

12:27:00 PM

Luis Manzano clarified speculations that his mother, Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto, was the target of a car ambush that killed her executive assistant and his driver last March 12.

The TV host-actor told “The Buzz” on March 13 that he had spoken with his mother about the incident.

Tinawagan ko ‘yung mommy ko… habang ongoing ang ‘E-Live.’ Tinanong ko [siya], ‘Nangyari ba na ikaw ‘yung target na may nadamay lang?' Sabi niya hindi talaga. Sabi niya, ‘Ako pauwi. Completely iba ang pupuntahan nila.’ So, I guess iba ‘yong rason kung bakit nangyari ‘yon. I don’t think may kinalaman sa mommy ko,” Luis related.

Text messages and online posts circulated earlier alleging that the Star for All Seasons was victimized in the ambush. Luis dispelled the rumor on “E-Live” Saturday.

I just want to clarify na hindi po totoo na ina-ambush ang mommy ko. Ang unfortunate incident po ay nangyari po sa kanyang executive assistant,” he said.

Luis reiterated in his interview with “The Buzz” that the actress-politician is “a-okay.” He also wished that “justice be served” for the victims of the ambush namely Cesar Guce, Santos-Recto’s executive assistant and the supervising administration officer in Batangas’ budget office, and his driver Randy Reyes.

The two, together with a 17-year-old boy, were heading to Cuenca, Batangas aboard a Toyota Land Cruiser when three masked men on a motorcycle fired at them along Barangay Banay-Banay at around 6:30 a.m. Sunday, reported ABS-CBN News.

The vehicle, according to witnesses, then lost control and smashed into a watermelon stall. The boy reportedly survived the grim incident but Guce and Reyes did not even when reportedly rushed to the Mary Mediatrix Hospital by bystanders.

Vilma was “shocked” at what happened to her executive assistant.

He’s a good man at wala akong alam na dahilan para siya patayin,” she told ABS-CBN News.

While Luis thinks the motive behind the ambush was likely "personal,” the Batangas governor is clueless if the incident involved work.

I have no idea kung may nasasagasaan siya sa trabaho niya, and knowing him, he’s not the type na nakikialam sa interes ng ibang tao,” she said.

The Batangas police, headed by Senior Superintendent Albert Supapo, has launched a special task force to investigate the incident upon Santos-Recto's orders.

Hindi ko sila pababayaan, gagawin ko ang lahat para mahuli ang mga gumawa sa kanila ng bagay na ito,” said the governor. - source
