“Sa mahabang panahon, hindi niyo napakinabangan bilang mamayan ng lungsod ng Maynila (ang Bonifacio Shrine). Hindi na siya mapanghi, hindi na siya tae-tae island (For a long time, the people of Manila did not enjoy and benefit from this place.  Today, this place is no longer filthy and teeming with human waste),” Moreno told Manila City Hall personnel.

He likewise accidentally stepped on human waste during the inspection.
