“Ano na yan, both ways ‘yan eh. Kapalpakan, kapabayaan, kakulangan ng gobyerno kung bakit nagka-ganyan ‘yan,” Moreno told reporters.

“At the same time, nananawagan tayo sa mga kababayan natin na maki-isa, magkusang loob ng disiplina,” he added, urging the public to be mindful of not throwing their trash anywhere that usually end up in the sewers. (Editor: Jonathan P. Vicente)
