429F71A8-005F-44B4-8C95-1AE840BF197CMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – All government officials are required by law to file their annual Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN). Including members of the Cabinet.

Today, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque denied the claim that Duterte’s Cabinet is a ‘millionaire’s club.’

”That’s not true at all,” Roque told The Adobo Chronicles. “As a matter of fact, two of the Cabinet members are billionaires.”

The billionaires are Public Works Secretary Mark Villar who declared a net worth of P1,407,459,436, making him the richest of Cabinet members. Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi is the second richest with P1,355,632,637 in declared net worth.

National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) chief Secretary Liza Maza is the “poorest” in the cabinet  with P1,186,500 worth declared in her 2017 SALN, Malacañang said over the weekend.
