MANILA, Philippines — Former first lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos, the mother of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. who underwent an angioplasty last May 7, is getting stronger and better, according to her daughter, Senator Imee Marcos.

In an Instagram post on Thursday, Sen. Marcos shared a photo of her and her mother beside a hospital bed. 


“Happy to see you getting stronger and better, mommy. Healthier days are definitely ahead,” she wrote. 


Last March, rumors about the death of the 93-year-old Marcos matriarch circulated, but were quickly debunked by Sen. Marcos and the former first lady’s niece Eliza Romualdez-Valtos. 

Imelda – who President Marcos refers to as the “supreme politician” of the family – is convicted of seven counts of graft for transferring $200 million to seven Swiss foundations when she was a government official from 1968 to 1986.

 She was slapped with a penalty of six to 11 years in prison for each count of graft. The Sandiganbayan Fifth Division ordered her arrest and asked her to explain her absence at the promulgation of the decision in 2018.

But Imelda has never seen a day in prison since the police did not act on the arrest order, citing the former first lady’s health and age.
