4 MMDA enforcers commended for returning left behind luggage

/ 05:36 PM July 11, 2017

Four Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) enforcers received commendations on Tuesday for returning luggage accidentally left by a commuter.

The four are Elmo Barranta III, Benjamin Mapili, Rommil Um, and Arnold Malban, who are members of MMDA’s Anti-Littering Group.

They turned over to the agency the luggage of Geronimo Dalagdag, who was apprehended Monday, July 10, by the MMDA personnel for violating the agency’s anti-littering policy.

Dalagdag, they said, was cooperative and even gave his ID when they explained his violation.

Apparently in a hurry to get to his destination, the commuter unmindfully left his luggage behind after a brief discussion with the MMDA personnel, the agency said in a statement.

To secure the contents of the luggage, the MMDA enforcers immediately decided to bring it to the main office in Makati City.

“This only proves that we have a bountiful of good-hearted personnel in government service despite being vilified in public,” MMDA chair Danilo Lim said.

“We recognize and salute such acts of kindness toward other people and the public at large to whom we serve,” Lim added.

The luggage has already been sent back to Dalagdag, Rose Blay, administrator at the Office of the MMDA’s chairman, said over the phone. Rogelio Nato, Jr., INQUIRER.net trainee/JE
