KBYN: Kaagapay ng Bayan features the families of the Mercraft tragedy victims still seeking justice


MANILA. Philippines – More than four years after the tragic sinking of M/V Mercraft 3, Noli “Kabayan” De Castro checks on the victims’ families as they continue their quest for justice this Sunday (June 26) on “KBYN: Kaagapay ng Bayan.”

It was four days before Christmas in 2017, when the motor vessel capsized. Seven passengers were confirmed dead while five remain missing up to this day.

Listen to the victims’ loved ones as they tell their stories and find out what justice awaits them after over four years in the latest episode of “KBYN,” which airs at 5 pm on A2Z, TeleRadyo, Kapamilya Channel with livestreaming on Kapamilya Online Live, youtube.com/ABSCBNNews and news.abs-cbn.com/live.

This weekend, viewers will also know more about Princess Tacatac, the 13-year old grandniece and protégée of the legendary mambabatok Apo Whang Od, who’s now 105 years old.

The program visited her in Buscalan Village, Tinglayan, Kalinga, where she started learning to become a mambabatok at five years old. Now a teenager, she is already considered an expert on the traditional tattoo method which they are trying to preserve.

From a rising mambabatok princess, Kabayan will shift the focus on the corgi, a dog breed that is treated like royalty. Noli visits Zelton Corgis in Bocaue, Bulacan, where they breed around 30 corgis.

Catch these stories on “KBYN: Kaagapay ng Bayan,” every Sunday, 5 pm before “TV Patrol Weekend” on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live on YouTube and Facebook, news.abs-cbn.com/live, YouTube ng ABS-CBN News, and A2Z.
