A Duterte admin DSWD official is in hot water after he was captured on video allegedly distributing money, concealed in envelopes, during a gathering of SK Manila officers.
The video was posted by the Facebook page named “Pagbabalik ni Mayor Lim” with the caption, “DSWD USec Isko Moreno Nagbigay ng Tig-P1000 sa mga SK ng Maynila”.
DSWD Usec Isko Moreno was speaking to the winners of the just concluded Sangguniang Kabataan election when someone from the audience decided to start recording Moreno’s speech using his camera phone.
In the opening part of the video, Moreno can be overheard telling the audience that ever since he has been trying to come up with an assembly, whether an information dissemination drive or something that they can do together.
Moreno then switches to Tagalog and said, “Titiyakin ko walang magaabono sa inyo.” (I’ll assure you, none of you will spend money out of your pocket.)
He repeated the word “mag-aabono” to stress that none of them will spend their personal money.)
“Kaya ang inyong mga pangalan. wag wawalain,” Moreno reminded the audience not to lose their names by misplacing or what.
At this juncture, a couple of visitors started filing out of the gathering.
Turned out, the visitors who can be seen exiting the venue were allegedly Manila Vice Mayor Lacuna and several City Councilors from different districts of Manila, as claimed by the video uploader.
At this point, the audience can be heard shouting, “Mayor, mayor, mayor”!
Moreno, obviously flattered by the chants of “mayor” from the audience said, “Walang hiya kayo, baka mapagalitan ako!” (You are shameless. I might get a tongue-lashing.)
Moreno, imitating Erap’s voice told the audience, “Anong sinasabi niyo doon?” (What were you blabbering there?)
Moreno continued, “Basta masaya ako nakita kayo. Itinatangos ng ilong namin na may programa ang gobyerno na maari ninyong gamitin, maari ninyong i-utilize to help others. Masaya ako na masay ako.”
“Masaya ba kayo ngayong hapon?”, Moreno asked the audience. (Are you happy this afternoon?) The audience replied in the affirmative.
Moreno shouted to someone named Joh in the audience, while saying, “O Jonh, masaya daw sila.” (Oh, John they said they are happy.)
“Ako naman may bilin sa inyo, wag niyo pabayaan ito si John,” Moreno told the audience not to forget John.
The video uploader claimed Moreno was campaigning on behalf of John as SK Federation Vice President.
The audience responded with a loud applause.
Moreno told the audience that he does not want to go into that pero alam nyo na naman, malapit na malapit sa akin si John.
Moreno reiterated what he just said not to forget John.
Before yielding the microphone, Moreno asked for the understanding of the audience for the little gift (P1K according to video uploader) being passed around to the audience.
Moreno concluded his speech by telling the SK Manila officers that he wishes to see them soon, so that they can start working together.
Moreno also sends his wishes success to each of the SK Manila officers in the service of their constituents.
The video then showed the distribution of white envelopes to the SK Manila assembly participants.
