MULTIMEDIA Katrina Domingo, ABS-CBN News Posted at Oct 10 2019 04:03 PM MANILA - "Walang tulugan." That was the catchphrase of the late television host German "Master Showman" Moreno, who helped hatch the showbiz career of Francisco 'Isko Moreno' Domagoso, a former scavenger and pedicab driver in Tondo who now holds the capital city's seat power. Since his upset victory in the May 2019 midterm polls over incumbent Mayor Joseph Estrada, Moreno has turned the same catchphrase of his entertainment industry mentor into one of the hallmarks of his leadership. Moreno's office hours are usually reserved for meetings and courtesy visits. Evenings are spent on business dinners aimed at luring tycoons to reinvest in the capital city.

The ISKOnek, powered by Eastern Communications, can serve 100 users at a time, Moreno told reporters. Each user can connect for 30 minutes before he or she is “kicked out of the system” so other people can connect, he said. “Connectivity now is a necessity.
