A clean-up drive involving Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada turned into a controversial affair after a reporter of ABS-CBN witnessed how it was carried out.
KAMI learned about the controversy from TV Patrol via ABS-CBN News’ YouTube channel.
The video report shows the Mayor, his staff and some media men boarding two boats for the supposed clean-up drive of Manila Bay.
But instead of going to the dirty part of the bay, Estrada’s team went to a clean area of the bay.
What surprised ABS-CBN reporter Jasmin Romereo even more was that one of the Mayor’s staff members dropped pieces of trash on the water.
When Romereo asked the female staff member why she did that, she replied that it was necessary so that the Mayor would be photographed while “cleaning” the bay.
After the “clean-up drive,” the reporter asked Estrada if he was aware of what his staff did.
“Well, it was for publicity only,” he responded.
Netizens were enraged by the incident.
“Pakitang gilas pero mali naman paraan”
“The most epic fail in history... turuan mo ng mali ang mga kabataan.”
KAMI believes that the Mayor’s goal of cleaning up Manila Bay is a noble endeavor. But was that publicity stunt really necessary?
