Former Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) cager-turned-Valenzuela 1st District Councilor Gerald Esplana, chair of the city council’s committee on education, said he had been the latest victim of these reporters who introduced themselves as “radio reporters.â€
He said the harassment occurred inside his office when he was busy attending to the needs of his constituents in Valenzuela City, most of whom totally lost their houses and belongings to the floodwaters. According to Esplana, he was in New York, U.S.A., visiting his family when he saw on the news how “Ondoy†wreaked havoc in the country. So, he cut short his stint to help affected Valenzuela residents. From the airport, Esplana did not attend the city council’s session and went directly to his office to personally supervise the distribution of relief goods to affected barangays. He said three reporters claiming to be block-timers in a local radio station arrived and asked his staff to allow them to talk with him. “Ipa-follow-up daw ‘yung hinihingi nilang sponsorhip para sa kanilang radio program. Ang sabi ko, sandali lang kasi nagbibigay pa ako ng instruction sa staff ko kung papaano ang distribution ng relief goods. Aba, eh nagalit na at biglang umalis,†said Esplana.
