Mayor Climaco eyes aid for families displaced by road clearing ops


Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco has assured relocation site for the families displaced by the road clearing operations in the city.

The mayor said the local government supports President Rodrigo Duterte’s order on road clearing, “but when it comes to the interest of our people, I will stand to protect them.”

She said the city government will find an area where those affected by the road clearing operations could have their livelihood.

Climaco said they will also try to source out funds to give as livelihood capital to those affected.

The road clearing operations ended last week with seven out of 97 barangays in the city failed to fully comply the directive.
