Comedians Ai Ai delas Alas, Pokwang, Ogie Diaz, and Ethel Booba took to social media amid the water crisis in Metro Manila that has been going on for more than a week now.

While they decided to poke a bit of fun on their social media accounts, it cannot be denied that their posts echoed the concerns of thousand of Filipinos affected by the shortage.

Delas Alas took to Instagram to post a photo about the water interruption with the caption: “Lakas maka-4th world [country] na. Hay naku, ang Pilipinas [nating] mahal, ano na nga.”

Pokwang decided to post a video of her wherein she recreated a television interview of a woman complaining about the water shortage while doing the laundry.

Meanwhile, Ethel Booba called out Finance Secretary Sonny Dominguez who supports the construction of the China-funded Kaliwa Dam to solve Manila’s water crisis.

“If this is true & if we really need this dam in the future since business & popular are growing then explain it properly. People will understand if they foresee a water crisis sa [dadating] na panahon. Di yung bibiglain ngayon hirap kaya maligo lalo na pag Dove ang sabon. Charot!” Ethel Booba said as a response to Dominguez’s report.

For his part, Ogie Diaz gave a piece of advice to those who are running this coming midterm elections.

“Sa mga tumatakbong Senador, kung gusto nyong iayos ang buhay ng mahihirap, umpisahan niyo. Magparasyon kayo ng tubig,” said Diaz.

It can be recalled that residents in some parts of Metro Manila including Mandaluyong, Pasig, and Quezon City experienced water service interruptions which lasted for nearly a week.

The water flow is somehow back to normal after President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the release of water from the Angat Dam.

President Duterte’s order came less than 24 hours after Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said that the water shortage in Metro Manila may be artificial.

Duterte ordered MWSS to demand water concessionaires Manila Water Company, Inc., Maynilad Water Services, Inc., and other responsible offices to release water, equivalent to about 150 days, from Angat by noontime of March 15.

The president said he would personally hold MWSS, Manila Water, and Maynilad liable for failure to comply with his order.
