UNTV News and Rescue

The National Housing Authority (NHA) has begun issuing eviction notices to Kadamay members who forcefully occupied several of the government’s housing units in Pandi, Bulacan.

The NHA first went to Villa Elise in Barangay Masuso, Pandi, Bulacan where over 240 Kadamay members have occupied the housing units.

PNP Bulacan provincial public safety members monitored the site to ensure that no violence happens in the area.

Actually yung unit dito ay 324 na occupied lahat. After seven days mag-iintay kami ng order galing sa taas kung papaano naming ise-serve ulit yung susunod na order. Syempre iiwasan natin magkaroon na masaktan lalo na yung mga bata kababaihan (Actually there are 324 units here which have been occupied. After seven days, we shall await directives on how to serve the next order. Of course we will avoid any incident that may harm anyone especially the children and women),” Pandi Chief of Police, PCInsp. Manuel Cristobal de Vera said.

According to Leonara Nagales, community relation officer of NHA-Bulacan, the agency is giving the militants seven days to vacate the housing units. Otherwise they will have to use force to have them leave the area.

However, several Kadamay members maintain they will not leave the place.

“Kung utos na nga ng nakataas sa amin pwede kaming umalis, pero sa ngayon hindi pa gawa ng wala pa kaming natatanggap na galing sa taas,” Kadamay member Edwin Coronel said.

(If it was an order from the high officials, we will leave. But for now, we will not leave since there is no such order as of yet.)

“Sa akin lang parang ayaw kong umalis, never pong mangyayari na lalaban po kami, kung utos po ni Duterte may pag-uusap naman po ngayun susunod po kami kung nasa tama at kung kami ay bibigyan ng tugon.” Kadamay member Leonardo Palomeno said.

(As for me, I do not want to leave. We will not fight violently. If it was the President’s order, it can be discussed. We will follow the order as long as it is right and if our demands are met.)

Meanwhile, a negotiation took place between the NHA and Kadamay in Pandi residences 2 and 3 in Barangay Mapulang Lupa.
