Noynoy Aquino's KAMAGANAK Inc increasingly being placed under close scrutiny!

More light is being shed into the rampant cronyism that seems to be going on within the administration of Philippine President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III. The latest snafu to highlight the alleged proliferation of these under-the-table handshakes in MalacaƱang involves the suspension of Land Transportation Office (LTO) chief Virginia Torres over anomalies surrounding a project to computerise LTO operations.

Torres is renowned for being one of Aquino's "shooting buddies" and is reportedly one of the people within his circle of family and friends that the President appointed to various lucrative Philippine Government posts. As such, her re-instatement after the two-month suspension recommended by the Department of Justice is now seen to be suspect.

Recently, Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) Secretary Jose “Ping” de Jesus to whose department the LTO reports was sacked by the President. Ping de Jesus is widely recognised as a highly-competent top-class administrator, one who served President Aquino's mother, former President Corazon "Cory" Aquino.

Only now smelling a rat (despite the stench wafting across the National "Debate" for over a year), Opposition lawmakers are taking action...
Opposition lawmakers are training their guns on the “kakampi, kaklase and kabarilan” of President Benigno Aquino III whom MalacaƱang has purportedly been coddling.

Speaking on Wednesday at a press conference, House Minority Leader Edcel Lagman announced the filing of a yet unnumbered resolution calling for the investigation of Interior Undersecretary Rico Puno for alleged bribery, Land and Transportation Office (LTO) chief Virginia Torres for alleged illegal meddling, Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. for his reported P40-million mansion, Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima for the alleged filing of tax charges against political enemies and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) Chair Margarita Juico for alleged irregularities in her office, including its transfer from the Quezon Institute to the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).

Remains to be seen, of course. For a quick visual reference on the scope and scale of the crony/clan network of President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, refer to our Map of Kamaganak Inc.

  2. Just an observation. Doon sa kamaganak inc na map, wala ata akong masyadong napansin na kamaganak. If i recall, the term originated from peping c's major role in the cory administration. So how does the term kamaganak apply to noynoy's administration?

  3. Yes mayroon si PNOY mga kaibigan na nasa pwesto pero sa tingin ko ay QUALIFIED naman sila but if nagkaroon sila ng aberya ay dapat lang bigyan ng parusa, di ba?..ang hindi ko naiintindihan sa ibang tao ay puro tira ng tira kay PNOY, bakit hindi natin bigyan ng panahon para ayusin ang dapat ayusin,...kung isang tao nga ay nabigyan ng pwesto sa isang office ay tnutulungan nya ang mga kaibigan niya ,..ano pa kaya si PNOY na nasa pwesto at pwede naman mag-extend ng tulong? Isang araw ay pupunta ako sa Palasyo at hihingi ako ng tulong para magka-trabaho,...tingnan natin kung tutulungan ako ni PNOY,...ABANGAN..anong trabaho?...maski JANITOR nalang doon sa office ni Madame LEILA,...baka magalit si PING...walng personalan ,okay?
