Manila Mayor Isko Moreno shrugged off the death threats he has been receiving since he assumed his new post almost two weeks ago.

KAMI learned that according to a close associate of the new mayor, Moreno gained threats for clearing the Manila City.

“Occupational hazards 'yan. Kasama sa trabaho 'yan. Dasal-dasal lang. Nyangga-nyangga lang. May awa ang Diyos,” Moreno said.

As reported by the Manila Bulletin (author Erma Edera), third district Councilor Manuel “Letlet” Zarcal shared that Moreno “simply brushed aside” the threats he has been getting.

“The mayor simply brushed aside the threat when the information was given to him, saying it comes with the territory,” Zarcal said.

“Sabi ni mayor, hazards of the job daw ‘yun and only meant to derail his efforts to rid the city of illegal vendors and syndicated, ‘organized’ vending schemes,” he added.

In a previous report by KAMI, Moreno led the clearing operations for overcrowded places in Manila like Divisoria and Carriedo.

KAMI also reported earlier that Moreno revealed he was offered a daily P5 million bribe so that he would not push through with the clearing operations.
