MANILA -- Host-actress Kris Aquino offered a prayer for her brother, President Benigno Aquino III, ahead of his upcoming State of the Nation
Kris, who went abroad as part of the third anniversary celebration of her morning show "Kris TV," prayed for her only brother when she went to the Macau Cathedral for the first time.
"Siya talaga ang ipinagdasal ko kasi, in the coming days, alam ko na maraming mga pagsubok na pagdadaanan. So, siya talaga ang inuna ko sa prayer," the TV host said.
"Kasi parang sa totoo lang naman ay wala naman akong mako-complain talaga, apart from personal life. Everything else, parang I always tell my sisters, what more can I ask for -- 'yung material blessings, okay kami ng kids, good health, okay 'yung mga katrabaho ko. So unahin mo na lang talaga 'yung mga nangangailangan ng prayers and 'yun kailangan talaga," she said.
On Monday, a former congressman filed an impeachment complaint against the President for bribery and violating the constitution, although analysts said the popular leader could defeat the motion, thanks to his grip on the legislature.
It is the first time that Aquino, whose popularity rating in the past four years has stayed above 40 percent, could face impeachment for distributing his discretionary funds to lawmakers, an act the Supreme Court has declared illegal.
