Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso is barely two weeks in office but he has been receiving death threats as a result of his efforts to bring back the city roads and streets back to the people of Manila.

Manila Councilor Manuel “Letlet”  Zarcal, a close associate of the mayor, disclosed that the death threats, coming from different sources, were relayed to him and Domagoso.

“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.

Zarcal refused to divulge the details of the threats and the possible sources of such threats.

He said the threats must have come from those who lost a lot when Moreno  decisively reverted the use of major city streets to motorists, public utility vehicles, pedestrians, and commuters, to the detriment of vendors who have lorded over the  thoroughfares for the past six years. (Erma Edera)
