Manila Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso asked the public to remember the names of incumbent barangay officials who have been committing malpractices amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Domagoso said on his Facebook live that if these barangay officials could take advantage of the crisis, “what more could they do when things go back to normal?”

"Sana mga kababayan, huwag kayong lilimot na pagbayarin sila sa mata ng batas. Darating uli sila sa inyo pagdating ng araw, mamimigay yan ng 5 kilong bigas o limang daang piso para sa kanilang halalan. Sana huwag niyong kalimutan ang dinanas ninyo, ang dinanas nating hirap ngayong COVID-19," the Mayor said.

"Huwag na huwag niyo nang palulusutin 'yang mga 'yan. Kung kaya nilang gawin yan na abusuhin kayo sa oras ng inyong kagipitan, kahirapan, ano pa kaya sa regular na araw?" he added.

Domagoso issued the call after receiving several reports that some barangay officials have been allegedly getting a portion of the relief packs provided by the city government for the public.

Families living in the City of Manila are expected to receive 3 kilos of rice, two cans of sardines, one spaghetti pasta, and one spaghetti sauce in their food boxes.

However, according to the reports received by the Mayor, some families received less than what was provided.

Some only received 2 kilos of rice, some did not receive a spaghetti sauce, while some did not receive any canned sardines, the Mayor said.

He assured the public that the government will not tolerate these malpractices, stressing that some barangay officials will soon be facing charges.

"These are the things na hindi niyo maitatago sa tao kasi pagod po ang tao ngayon, hirap na hirap po ang tao kaya sana maging takdang aral ito sa lahat ng barangay officials. Ngayon tayo kailangan ng tao. Ang tanging puhunan natin ay puyat at pagod," Domagoso said.

"Ang inyong Pamahalaang Lungsod naman, kahit sa maliit na kapamaraanan ay kahit papano, may naibibigay na pang-harimunan. 'Wag na natin pag interesan yung hindi atin," he added.
