Moreno: I was offered P5M daily to stop drive vs vendors
MANILA, Philippines — Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said he was offered bribes ranging from P5 million a day to P1.8 billion a year to drop his promise to get vendors out of the main roads of the national capital.
“May nagpaparating lang sa akin na mensahe: P5 million daw a day, P150 million a month, P1.8 billion a year. Ngayon, whether it is true or not, I don’t know,” Moreno said in a press briefing at the Manila City Hall on Tuesday. “Para dating gawi.”
[Somebody relayed to me the message: They will give me P5 million day, P150 million a month, P1.8 billion a year. Now, whether that is true or not, I don’t know. It’s like the same old system.]
Moreno said he would stick to his promise.
“We will be consistent, persistent in putting order in the City of Manila,” he said “Ibabalik ko ang kalsada sa mga taga-Maynila.”
[I will give back the streets to the Manila residents.]
