Duterte Effect: Manila Imitates Davao City By Cleaning Up Divisoria And Baclaran

Some call it the “Duterte Effect” some calls it the “Duterte Magic” [named after the new President Rodrigo Duterte], whatever you want to call it, we can agree that it has a positive effect on society, well at least in terms of discipline.
But what is it exactly?
Netizens uploaded photos of Baclaran and Divisoria now and to our surprise both shopping meccas are super clean and organized. What happened? Did the typhoon blew the trash away? Did all those vendors in the street got sick or something? We had to find out.
After a lot of observations with the similarities and patterns that our good nation is experiencing, we can say with confidence that everybody wants to imitate Duterte, everyone wants to be the strong-man, every city now wants to be like Davao City, in Baclaran and Divisoria people weren’t forced to move, no added CCTV’s for litterers, it just pure discipline, the discipline inspired by one man and that’s President Duterte.
The “Duterte Effect” is mirroring what our good president has done in past and netizens have been uploading the “Duterte Effect” in social media just like Baclaran and Divisoria, these two major shopping meccas in the metro, both one of the busiest parts of the nation’s capital, both shopping centers, both chaotic, 4 days of Duterte as president they’re not anymore.


The once filthy, crowded and chaotic Divisoria in Manila and Baclaran in Pasay are now clean and organized, just like in Davao City and that’s just unbelievable.
Reports says that the Manila officials cleaned up the areas because they were inspired by Duterte and the locals allowed them do their job effectively because they to want the Duterte treatment.
This is real change in Metro Manila indeed, no matter what angle you see this is positive because it enrich the people’s lives.
Is this just for show? Or will this continue all through out the country? We hope the latter.
