Nearly 18 percent of the 5,714 barangays surrounding Manila Bay have complied with a directive from the interior department to participate in a drive to clean the polluted bay. The interior department is preparing show-cause orders to the chiefs of some 1,000 barangays which ignored the directive, said Martin Diño, interior undersecretary for barangays affairs.
