Muntinlupa LGU Cash Aid Beneficiaries List Criticized after a Whole Clan was Listed

The local government of Muntinlupa clarified the beneficiaries list for cash aid after it draws criticisms online due to a whole clan listed.

The city authority of Muntinlupa emphasized that the list of financial aid recipients on the full website with the same last name is authentic and valid. This comes after a list of aid recipients in Barangay Cupang with the surname “Alipit” recently went popular on social media.

Tez Navarro, Muntinlupa’s Public Information Officer, asserted that the list had been cross-checked and validated by local and national authorities. They were certain that the list was confirmed because it was purportedly utilized from a previous Social Amelioration Program (SAP) distribution, according to her.

 “Ito pong listahan na ito ay ginamit po sa nakaraang SAP distribution, meaning na-verify lahat ito ng DSWD national at ng local, pati ng barangay. Kami po ay confident dito at wala naman po kaming nilabag na batas or whatever,” said Navarro.

She explained that city people with the same last name are not uncommon because they are members of clans owing to “inter-marriages.” The many clan surnames, she claimed, are a thing of the past.

“Noong unang panahon po, ang mga tao dito ay inter-marriages ang nangyayari, kaya dumami ang mga angkan. Nasa history po ‘yan na may certain barangays na puro ganito ang apleyido,” he added.

Meanwhile, the LGU claims that the help will be distributed via an online payment facility. They’ll also use a “by appointment” manual payout approach to avoid crowds in distribution centers.
