Edu to take a break from campaign after brother’s death
Posted by akosistella on April 7, 2010
PAMPANGA, Philippines – Despite the recent death of his brother, Lakas-Kampi-CMD vice presidential bet Edu Manzano still decided to continue his scheduled campaign sorties in Bataan and Pampanga on Wednesday.
Though he seemed all smiles and in a joking mood as he addressed a crowd of Lakas local officials in San Fernando, Manzano turned emotional when he talked about the death in the United States of his 64-year-old brother, Adrian “Dicky” Manzano.
Manzano, 10 years younger than Adrian, said he was campaigning in Davao on Tuesday afternoon when he received the sad news of his elder brother’s death last Monday, April 5, at 4:30 p.m. Pacific time.
