Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno captured the attention of the netizens again after his interview with Kapamilya journalist Karen Davila about the issue of Manila Bay rehabilitation.
In the interview, the two talked about the controversy being faced by the said project, including the decision of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to place artificial white sand made of Dolomite in the shores of Manila Bay.
He pointed out that the said project was already started two years ago and its budget was approved by lawmakers.
“So these lawmakers, I understand their feelings. But remember, they are part of the approval of the 2020 budget last year and it was presented to them one way or another,” said Moreno.
“Third, timeless. Eh two years ago pa ito eh. Hindi ito sinimulan nang isang linggo, isang buwan o nung January, this is two years ago,” he added.
Moreno also questioned the attention received by the white sand project.
“It’s just that your attention or some other individuals’ attention was called when it is white sand. But what if is black sand?” Moreno told Davila.
Moreno also said that he trusted the wisdom of the national government.
He even showed the statement of the Department of Health clarifying that the Dolomite being put in Manila Bay is safe for the people.
Moreno was also thankful for helping the Manila City Government on their bringing back the beauty of the nation’s capital.
The said video has gone viral on social media receiving millions of views.
Moreno already defended the said project several times.
