Isko asks barangay chiefs to continue cleanup drive

October 15, 2019

MANILA Mayor Isko Moreno yesterday appealed to all barangay chairmen to put politics aside and heed President Rodrigo Duterte’s call tocarry on with cleanup efforts even if the deadline for clearing obstructions has ended.

Even if Manila was given a high compliance rating with regard the cleanup drive, Moreno said the clearing of obstructions and cleaning of streets will still continue.

“Masuwerte kayo nagkaroon kayo ng mayor na basurero...specialty natin ang paglilinis,” he said. “Naging masyadong madumi, libagin at banilin ang Maynila. Buong kababaang-loob akong nakikiusap sa inyo. Sama-sama tayong maglinis,” Moreno added.

As the new city mayor, Moreno said he is appealing to all barangay chairmen to help him keep Manila clean after suffering  from being dirty and having chaotic streets in the past recent years.
