5 Zambo traffic enforcers fail drug test

ZAMBOANGA CITY – Five government traffic enforcers were tested positive for drug substance following a surprise test at City Hall.

This was confirmed by City Administrator Mario Yanga, saying the random mandatory drug test on at least 57 traffic enforcers was ordered by Mayor John Dalipe. 

Yanga said there five traffic men will undergo another confirmatory drug tests. “The surprise random drug test was conducted at the behest of Mayor Dalipe who has been receiving complaints on alleged irregularities such as extortion and other misdemeanors committed by some traffic aides while performing their duties,” he said. 

He said those who fail the confirmatory drug test will be administratively sanctioned following due process. “Another round of surprise random drug testing will be conducted for city government employees anytime soon,” he said. 

Yanga did not release the names of those found positive for drug substance. Prior to the drug testing, the traffic enforcers were also given orientation on proper grooming as well as employee conduct and behavior at work. (Mindanao Examiner)
