KAMI learned that the former actor exposed how much bribe he was offered so that he would not pull through with the clearing operations in different parts of Manila.
According to Mayor Isko, he has been offered a daily P5-million bribe or P1.8 billion annually.
“May mga nagparating lang sa akin na mensahe na P5 million a day, P150 million a month, P1.8 billion a year… Kaya siguro mahirap linisin…
“Para dating gawi. Same-same.
“Simple lang ang sinabi ko. 'Subukan niyo.' Oh, hindi na tumawag,” the new mayor revealed, as quoted by GMA-7 News.
In a previous report by KAMI, Mayor Isko had a dumpsite in Lawton all cleaned up in just one day.
Isko Moreno has been married to Diana Lynn Ditan for 19 years already. They have five children – Vincent Patrick, born in 1998; Frances Diane, born in 2000; Joaquin Andre, born in 2001; Franco Dylan, born in 2006; and Drake Marcus, born in 2012.
