Vice President Leni Robredo quit her post as President Rodrigo Duterte's housing chief on Monday, December 5.

In a statement, Robredo said her resignation was prompted by Duterte's order for her "to desist from attending all Cabinet meetings starting this Monday, December 5."

The order was given through a text message sent by Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr, who in turn was relaying instructions given by Duterte through Special Assistant to the President Bong Go. 

The VP faces the media Monday at 5 pm. Watch. - Rappler.com
