"I SHALL NEVER FORGET what they did. I saw my sister very disappointed," Knack said.

Robredo was to head the regional organization, and he and Leni asked that his name be put in the party's list of officers.
However, she said Robredo quit weeks later to join Fidel Ramos who later on cheated in the elections.
Knack said she will ask Robredo why shed and her late husband betrayed Santiago.
"Why didn't you convince your husband to stay with Sen. Miriam and help reform the country since he already gave his word?" she said.
"Define reform. Define betray. Dafine LOVE for the country," she added.
The late former Senator Miriam Santiago was known to be a supporter of President Duterte.
It can also be recalled that Knack defended Duterte against the mainstream media who she said was spreading false information.
