Former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas made a rare public appearance since losing his political comeback attempt in 2019 during the 75th death anniversary of late President Manuel Roxas.
The said event was held amid the Capiztahan Festival that was being held in Capiz.
In the said photos posted on social media, it can be seen that Roxas talked to Vice President Sara Duterte, the child of his nemesis, former President Rodrigo Duterte.
Some photos from SMNI confirmed that the two talked briefly, but there are no details about their discussion.
“Ang taunang tradisyon na ito ay isinasagawa upang magbigay parangal at pag-alala sa mga makabayan na kontribusyon ni dating Pangulong Roxas sa ating bansa,” the Vice President said.
The former secretary is the grandchild of former president Roxas.
Meanwhile, some netizens questioned the meeting between the two and reminded Roxas of what he said about Davao City in 2016.
His criticisms against former President Duterte were also believed to be the reason why he lost his attempt to return to politics in 2019.
However, there were rumors that Roxas may become a public official in the future because he is a cousin of First Lady Liza Araneta Marcos.
“Nagpapabango ba? Sana hindi siya yung nasa blind item na mag babalik sa isang cabinet position ng administration ngayon,” netizen Dhone said.
