By the way, here’s a photo of Alabang before the local government swooped down the sidewalks and did a clean up.
The viral photo inspired an FB Page to concoct a story which many netizens readily believed.
Du30 rode his motorcycle with a helmet around Muntinlupa to inspect the traffic situation. He saw that there were a lot of vendors causing the traffic in Muntinlupa market. He rode his motorcycle straight to the office of Fresnedi and the guard at the Mayors office didn’t allow him to enter kasi he had his helmet on. When he took off his helmet, all his bodyguards started to surround him and Mayor Fresnedi immediately stepped out of his office to welcome Digong. Digong told Fresnedi he wanted all the vendors out of the streets and inside the market selling area. The last 2 days, no traffic and extremely peaceful to walk around the market area. People didn’t complain.
To make the story believable, the Facebook page Balitang Kalye even posted a photo of President Duterte riding his favorite motorcycle.
However, a quick google search revealed that the photo was a hoax. It was a screenshot of the video documentary “Motorcycle Diaries” hosted by Jay Taruc of GMA News TV.
But another website claimed Presidente Duterte indeed toured around the Alabang area and made a surprise visit. You may check it here.
It is unimportant whether the story doing the rounds online about President Duterte and the Muntinlupa Mayor is true. The important thing is that, some local execs are now trying to impress the President by cleaning up their area of responsibility.
