Manila barangay officials return around P2.4-M excess emergency funds

There is an old dictum which says, “You lead by Example.”
Several barangay chairmen of the City of Manila returned a total of over P2.4-million excess funds from the City Amelioration Crisis Assistance Fund (CACAF), according to Mayor Isko Moreno.

Moreno posted Friday on Facebook the list of the 22 officials with their corresponding barangays and the amount of money returned.

The Manila mayor expressed his gratitude to the barangay chairmen during an address on Thursday night, where he commended each official who has returned excess funds to the government so far.

“Maraming salamat sa katapatan ninyo, mga barangay officials. Maraming salamat sa pagpupursige ninyo. Maraming salamat sa tulong ninyo na abutin natin, at magsama-sama tayo, magtulong-tulong tayong mga taong-pamahalaan, mga halal ng bayan, na patuloy na maging tapat sa ating tungkulin at tupdin ang ating sinumpaang obligasyon at responsibilidad,” the mayor said.

(Thank you very much for your honesty, barangay officials. Thank you very much for your perseverance. Thank you very much for your help in reaching out to all our constituents. Let us unite and help each other, duly-elected public officials, to continue being honest with our duties and fulfill our sworn obligations and responsibilities.)

The reason for the excess was that some citizens turned out to be not currently residing in their respective barangays, while other barangays mistakenly listed one family as two or more. Under the local city amelioration assistance fund, each family is entitled to P1,000.

The city’s financial assistance is separate from the national government’s amelioration fund under the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.
