Mayor Isko fumes upon seeing Ylaya in Binondo littered with trash


 

Manila Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso expressed disappointment over the filthy Ylaya Street he saw near the Binondo area on Monday morning.

"Kayo ba'y hindi nahihiya? Hindi ba kayo nahihiya niyan? O talagang baboy lang kayo sa bahay?" Moreno asked vendors while he did the surprise inspection.

"Walang kusa, walang kusa kahit anong awa mo sa kanila," he said in dismay as he looked at the piles of garbage that were left on the street.

The mayor ordered his staff to immediately prohibit street vendors from operating in that portion of Ylaya.

 

"'Di ba pinapayagan natin sila sa gabi? Kung ganyan lang din naman ang iiwan sa atin [basura] araw-araw, tigil na lang sila lahat," he said.

 

In a separate interview on GMA News' Unang Balita on Monday, Moreno said he was only asking for the vendors' cooperation.

"'Yung basura ng pang-araw at basura ng pang-gabi nagsama kaya bulubundukin ang basura," he said.

"Mamaya hindi na sila makakapagtinda. 'Yun ang penalty sa kanila kasi wala na ngang nagkokotong sa kanila e, inalis ko na nga. Ang hinihingi ko na lang ay 'yung kanilang mga basura ilagay nila sa tamang sisidlan," he added.

Moreno said the city government allows street vendors in other areas to continue their business, provided that they follow the rules.

"Maghanapbuhay sila nang maayos, maglinis sila at hayaan nilang ang tao makadaan. Huwag silang pupunta sa lugar na hindi puwede," he said.

Moreno added that some of the non-negotiable areas—off limits to street vendors—are the streets of Soler, Juan Luna, Carriedo, Blumentritt, Pedro Gil, Padre Faura, as well as the stretch from Asuncion Street to Abad Santos. —Dona Magsino/KG, GMA News
