Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said he would build public toilets in Liwasang Bonifacio due to the deluge of requests on social media.
“There are so many people passing by the park and we want to accommodate them and find them an outlet for number 1 (urinating) and number 2 (defecating),” he said.
The Mayor said Liwasang Bonifacio has turned into a “tae-tae island” (island of feces).
“These are the small things that are taken for granted by the government, dismissed as small matter, irrelevant, so on and so forth,” he said.
“Before you know it, the problem is so huge you could barely move… So as much as possible we are seeking the public’s cooperation,” he added.
Moreno said the public toilets will be completed in a few weeks.
He also said he is considering building other public toilets in the nation’s capital.
