Here’s what the female barangay personnel said about the Lugaw issue and the controversy that ignited.
LUGAW ISSUE – Phez Raymundo speaks on Facebook about the issue of “lugaw” that ignited controversy when the video of her went viral.
A female barangay official has apprehended a Grab driver who attempted to deliver food amid curfew hours. The encounter was recorded in a video and it eventually went viral. What has turned to be a bluff to many people online is the stand of the female official about the rice porridge or “lugaw” as not essential when it is technically food and actually a staple food in our country.
As per Presidential spokesman Harry Roque, “Delivery of food items must remain unhampered 24/7,” and he added that such must not be barred in checkpoints. Furthermore, Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez also clarified this certain guideline in areas under ECQ or the enhanced community quarantine. Accordingly, food deliveries, workers, APORs (authorized persons outside of residences) are exempted from curfew hours.
And on Facebook, a certain statement from the female personnel has been circulating online where she finally spoke about the issue of “lugaw” that caught lots of attention. In the screenshot circulating online, she pleads with the people to stop bashing her. As per the statement, she admitted her mistake and she’s also hurting because she was judged because of it.
She added that what she has done is only the result of the wrong system and incompetent task force. She even called out the IATF DOH to learn a lesson about what happened to her in terms of the confusing guidelines they have released and added that because of what happened, she lost her job instantly.
