President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday congratulated Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu for the rehabilitation of the Manila Bay.
“Let us begin by congratulating Secretary Cimatu. I remember that meeting, I think everybody was there, when I said, ‘Kaya mo linisin ito?’ And, the answer was a very curtly, he said, ‘Kaya trabahuwin’,” Duterte said during a taped address to the nation.
The people, according to him, are “enjoying” the white beach sand of Manila Bay.
He also shrugged off Vice President Leni Robredo’s criticisms against the beautification project, saying she has always something negative to say.
“Wala naman tayong magawa. You do it, may masabi sila. You do not do it, may masabi si Leni. What do you want us to do,” said Duterte.
