MMDA Chief Fernando's Young Nemesis

ATEEEE! A surprise morning raid by MMDA chair Bayani Fernando's police sends a young vendor to his feet as he calls for help from his sister. The siblings' tray of cigarettes and other items is later confiscated and crushed to pieces by Fernando's men as the new MMDA chief continues with his drive to rid Metro Manila's sidewalks of vendors and other obstructions. (See related story in this issue by Danilo Araņa Arao.)
