Rama asks: Why did Tomas fail to have Jaguar arrested?

OUTGOING Cebu City mayor Mike Rama turned the table on his rival, Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña, who insinuated that he protected slain suspected drug lord Jeffrey “Jaguar” Diaz. Osmeña said in his speech last Tuesday that all the officials in the barangay where Jaguar’s compound is located are allied with Rama, who also chose the police chief at a time Jaguar operated. Osmeña also admitted that Jaguar tried to give him money to support his campaign.

He (Osmeña) really should decline the offer. But why didn’t he arrest Jaguar supposing that’s already a crime…supposing he (Jaguar) was involved in an illegal activity, then why didn’t he tell the whole truth? Nganong karon pa man siya ni angkon? He should have said that before. Ang mga tawo di motuo ana oy. Pabilib ra na sya. Now the truth will come out in due time. Ayaw siya pahinambuga. Outgoing Cebu City mayor Mike Rama.

Delos Santos pledges to finish CCMC construction

Cebu City councilor Mary Ann delos Santos assured the public that the construction of the 10-storey Cebu City Medical Center will push through once all the requirements are met. Construction of the billion-peso building was halted after it was found out that the contractor has yet to secure a building permit. Engr. Josefa Ylanan, head of the Office of the Building Official, also said there is no mechanical and electrical plans nor a complete design and detail of the building.
Delos Santos said she woulnd’t mind waiting for a year to address the deficiences.

Another truth is that, once the mistakes and lapses will be corrected, the CCMC project will continue and will push through without any violations being committed so as not to waste government time, effort and money. Mary Ann delos Santos.

Smile, you’re on Mandaue’s traffic camera

Mandaue City will use traffic cameras for its no-contact apprehension policy under the administration of Mayor Luigi Quisumbing, who hopes it can help ease traffic as enforcers no longer need to stop violators to issue a ticket. Mandaue spent P39 million for 42 CCTV cameras as part of the modernization of its traffic signal system.

We will be implementing the ‘no contact apprehension.’ That means, ma dakpan ka sa camera, padad-an ka og ticket, pa dad-an ka og fine. Mandaue mayor Luigi Quisumbing.
