Roger Cimafranca: I am not a bad person

Radio blocktimer and suspended liaison officer Roger Cimafranca of the Association of Barangay Councils (ABC) faced the media and apologized to radio station dyLA, traffic personnel and Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama for his behavior towards traffic enforcer Lyndon Ocampo last month

Cimafranca said he failed to check his temper when he was flagged by Ocampo at the South Road Properties (SRP) for violating traffic rules against overloading and not requiring his passengers to wear crash helmets.

“Ako lang ipahibaw sa tanan na dili ko arogante og dili sab ko salbahis pagkataw. Niadtong tungora na emotional ko og wala ko masayod sa akong gipanulti (I would like everyone to know that I am not arrogant, I am not a bad person. I was just emotional at that time and didn’t know what I was saying),” Cimafranca said.

He said his encounter with  Ocampo led to a heated argument. Ocampo said he has forgiven Cimafranca and accepted his apology.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO-7) summoned Cimafranca to attend their investigation on Monday and explain why he used a non-existent plate number in his motorcycle.
