Isko Moreno has this reaction to netizen’s “bawal epal” reiteration
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno reacted to a netizen who called out his attention upon seeing his photo on a food cart after he implemented the “bawal epal”.
Isko, previously ordered to remove all the faces and names of politicians posted at public places around the capital city of the Philippines. He called this order as “bawal epal”.
This is not just the drastic change that the politician did in the city. He also cleared Divisoria of sidewalk vendors. His strong conviction to create change in the city where he was born and grew up received positive feedback.
In addition, his street lingo also caught the attention of many people around the country. He uses terms which can be called as “salitang kalye”. Because of this, the Isko Moreno vocabulary was born.
Behind the positive feedback, a netizen called out the attention of the Mayor upon seeing his face on a food cart.
The Twitter account of GMA News posted that the “Kusina ni Isko” arrived at the Bonifacio Shrine to give free “lugaw”.
However, Twitter user @erkmcstis retweeted this with a question to the Manila Mayor. “Bawal epal diba po
@IskoMoreno ???” the netizen wrote.
With this, Mayor Isko Moreno explained by saying that he already requested the person who donated not to put his face and name on the cart.
He also suggested names to replace the “Kusina ni Isko”. For the Mayor, netizens have a point in calling his attention for this.
“Netizens have a point on this one. Nakisuyo na po ako sa nag-donate po ng food truck na huwag na lang ilagay ang mukha at pangalan ko. Siguro ilagay na lang po nila “Kusina ng Maynila” o kaya “Kusina para sa Batang Maynila.” Next flag ceremony, wala na po iyan,” the politician said.
