Roxas describes Miriam as ‘sui generis’

/ 02:36 PM September 29, 2016

Former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas paid tribute to Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who became his rival for the presidency last May, describing the late former Senator as a “one of a kind” public servant who had always been “kind and gracious” to her fellow Ilonggo.

“Maayo nga panglakaton palangga inday Miriam. Sui generis talaga siya, she was always kind and gracious to me. One of a kind [0f] public servant, fiery fighter against the corruption she saw, warm friend and supportive mentor, loving mother and wife,” Roxas said in a Facebook post on Thursday.


“Indeed she lived in life what she often orated on the campaign – Captain of her ship, Master of her soul,” Roxas said.


“We are all diminished by her loss. Adios inday Miriam. Halong pirme.”
