Malacañang admits delays

11

Malacañang on Saturday admitted there have been delays in government’s effort to rebuild areas affected by Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).

Presidential deputy spokesman Abigail Valte said that President Benigno Aquino 3rd himself is closely monitoring progress on government’s Yolanda efforts.

“He calls for frequent meetings with his Cabinet secretaries to see what has been done already, because what the President said was, we’re doing a lot of things today that should’ve already been done yesterday; that means they should be done as soon as possible,” she told government-run dzRB radio.

Valte also echoed what Aquino said in his last State of the Nation Address on Monday that the government needs to do more after Yolanda.


“Oho, marami pa ho talaga tayong kailangang gawin para doon sa ating mga kababayang nasalanta ng bagyong ‘Yolanda,’ and of course it’s a big task [Yes, we really need to do more for Filipinos affected by Yolanda, and of course it’s a big task],” she said.But Valte thanked Chaloka Beyani, UN special rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons, for “recognizing the efforts of government when it comes to caring for internally displaced persons.”

  1. Aquino government needs the U.N to tell them that they need to do more ?

    Why didn’t they already know this ? 2 years have passed and they didn’t know or do anything about it ?

    Pretty sure if Aquino is asked he will say it’s Ex president GMA’s fault.

  2. Roldan Guerrero on

    Yong delay sa rehab ng Yolanda victims kasalanan din ni GMA…lahat ng kapalpakan ng rehimen na ito ay kasalanan ni GMA.

  3. Sa mga taong namamahala sa rehabilatasyon ng mga nasalanta ng supertyphoon Yolanda: Subukan ninyong manirahan sa mga lugar na sinalanta ng bagyong Yolanda para naranasan ninyo kung papaano sila nabubuhay doon at para lubos ninyong maunawaan ang ibig sabihin ng salitang “delay” o “atrasado” ang inyong mga aksyon. Bakit patuloy ninyong ipinagkakait ang kaunting ginhawa sa buhay ng mga biktima?

  4. It’s irritating to listen to lady gaga tell that this moron boss of hers is not just monitoring the rehab works in tacloban but “closely” monitoring it calling many cabinet meetings for this purpose. Stop this nonsense this moron couldn’t care less he’d rather play his games with his idiotic nephew from Kris than be concerned.

  5. Malacanang should not “monitoring the progress”. They should be acting, doing something. There’s a lot of posturing, but very little action when there is no financial gain from the elected officials. This culture has to change.

  6. Hindi lang Yolanda ang problema natin lahat.Iyong mga nasalanta
    sa lindol sa Negros Oriental , Bohol , Cebu at baha sa Illigan at pati na rin
    sa Zambonga . Lahat ito problema ng taong bayan.

    Dahil sa pamomolitika damay lahat. More walk sna then talk baka
    sakale may pag babago. Bintang dito at bintang doon at wala ng
    katapusan. dating Sen. Lacson magandang layunin nito, subalit
    mga politko ayaw silang maisahan at iyan ang katotohanan na dapat
    malaman ng taong bayan.

    Kung sana itong mga tulong ng mga ibang bansa nasaan na kaya
    itong lahat Maraming nag tatanong at walang maka sagot. Kapag
    may mangyaring sakuna nanaman sa atin sa tingin ba natin tutulong
    nanaman kaya sila at mga ibang mga Pinoy at Pinay na nasa ibat ibang
    panig ng mundo.

  7. the palace is holding off so they can use the money to fund their bet for the 2016 presidential election. that’s all there is to it.

  8. SOB valte, you mean malacanang is only monitoring the suffering of the people? For more than almost two years now with over flowing funds and donations, the work move in a snail pace? These only shows how incompetent the president is. And you expect the people ther to vote for roxas who will succeed the incompetence of this administration? ha! What wasted chance for 6 years we had. Having an animal president sitting in malacanang that has no brain and feelings for the people.

  9. this shows the inefficiency of the government agencies like too much red tape and bureaucracy that’s why Ping Lacson quit because he knew this would happen and he does not want to be blamed. its the people too. is it fair to say we are some what lazy? because the money is there but still nothing moves faster than expected but if you let the westerners like the US and Japan manage the Yolanda reconstruction then you all know what I mean.
