MANILA - Manila Mayor Isko Moreno led the lighting of a number of previously problematic lamp posts along Taft Avenue, Friday night.

He said the lighting activity along Padre Faura to Vito Cruz symbolizes the local government’s support for Filipino athletes, in time for the opening ceremonies of 30th Southeast Asian Games on Saturday.

Along the way, Moreno and others who joined him also blasted water on pedestrian lanes to rid the streets of foul odor.

Moreno hopes foreign neighbors would appreciate the supposedly clean capital during the country’s hosting duties.
