May krisis na, manggugulo pa! Vico Sotto slams sabotage of foodpacks distribution


Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto has expressed dismay at the entities which allegedly sabotaged the distribution of food packs in a community by sharing fake news.

In a Facebook post, Sotto apologized to residents of Kenneth Nagpayong in Pinagbuhatan for the chaotic distribution of relief goods on Friday, March 29.

The mayor said a person or a group suddenly called people who have yet to receive a claim stub for the food packs to the distribution site even if it wasn’t their turn yet. This resulted in Sotto’s team being mobbed.

“Nung dumagsa ang tao, gumawa pa siya ng eksena — nag-video-video habang sumisigaw na delikado’t walang social distancing… Eh kung di naman dahil sa kanya, wala naman sanang gulo!” he said.

Sotto said the logistics of distributing aid to residents in Pinagbuhatan isn’t easy considering its size. However, he said the local government is doing its best to ensure all residents receive food packs.

“Paalala na hindi pa po tapos ang distribusyon natin. Alam kong hindi perpekto ang sistema natin. But we will continue to do our best,” the mayor said.
