OLONGAPO CITY – Despite his hectic schedule after visiting two towns and a city in Bataan province, Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II paid a surprise visit to Raechelle Sumbilla who recently gave birth to a baby girl at the Mother and Child General Hospital in this city.
Roxas is accompanied by Morong (Bataan) Mayor Jorge Estanislao, Bataan Vice Governor Efren Pascual Jr. and Olongapo City Mayor Roulen Paulino.
Raechelle, a native of Morong is the wife of the late PO3 John Lloyd Sumbilla, one of the 44 PNP Special Action Force commandos, who was killed in a controversial encounter with rebels in Mamasapano, Maguindanao last January 25 of this year.
Sec. Roxas told newsmen that he will serve as ‘ninong’ to Sumbilla’s child named Jaden Renaia. “Isa po sa ipinangako sa amin ni Sec. Roxas ay yung scholarship grant po ng PNP sa education ng aking anak hanggang college,” Raechelle said in an interview.
