People were “enjoying” the white sand at Manila Bay, according to President Duterte.
President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday said that people were “enjoying” the view of Manila Bay that has white dolomite sand in it.
Also, the President congratulated Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu on the developments in the reclaimed area.
President Duterte recalled that he told Cimatu “Kaya mong linisin to?“, and Cimatu responded “Kaya“.
The President also said that people were really enjoying the view of Manila Bay with the “white” dolomite sand somehow. Moreover, the President said that critics will always find fault with what the government was doing.
“Wala naman tayo magawa. You do it, may masabi sila,” President Duterte said.
To recall, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) started putting “white” dolomite boulders from Cebu that were being crushed and brought to Manila Bay.
Prior to the President’s statement, the Department of Health issued a statement regarding the mass gathering at the Manila Bay, saying that it was a stressful situation considering that COVID-19 was still present in the country.
