Young vendor cries as traffic enforcers take his mangoes without paying
A photo of a young mango vendor is now growing viral after a netizen shared his story online. According to Januarie Sinnung Calzado, the child who is seen crying in the photo is her suki. He sells mangoes everyday because his family does not have enough income to send all the kids to school and even feed them.
The child confided to the woman that some traffic enforcers along Cubao grabbed several bags of mangoes from his basket without asking persmission, much less, paying.
The netizen tagged the MMDA in her post because she wanted to bring attention to the abusive behavior of the enforcers if investigations prove that they have wronged the child.
The post sparked outrage among fellow netizens as they felt pity for the child who is sacrificing to earn for his family and yet faces this type of injustice because he is young and defenceless.
