Later in the day of elections, members of a volunteer group pinpointed to us a group of people a couple of blocks away from Los Baños Central Elementary School, saying that those people were participating in vote-buying activities.
Lady in red
It was noticeable that the lady wearing a red blouse was actively moving and talking to the people around the area, carrying some plastic bags with her and handing them over to other people.
After a while, people were swarming towards the lady in red. It seems like they were discussing something. Some of them were looking at us and pointing their fingers towards us.
Riding a jeepney
Later on, it seems they’ve decided to leave the area and after gathering themselves, took a jeepney.
Around 4PM of Sunday (May 9, 2010), day before the elections, more than 27 buses and some more jeepneys were seen heading towards Trace college which was declared by Los Baños Mayoral candidate Ton Genuino as his residence in his Certificate of Candidacy. Based on the witnesses, they were told that the passengers of the fleet of buses were poll watchers to be trained using Trace college as a venue for Ton’s brother–Erwin Genuino, a Mayoral candidate in Makati City.
Here are some clips of the said convoy.
