Marawi marked this week the 5th year since then-president Rodrigo Duterte declared the so-called liberation of the predominantly Muslim city from the clutches of the ISIS-inspired Maute Group.

Rappler Mindanao bureau coordinator Herbie Gomez and regional head Inday Espina-Varona talk about the government’s hits and misses in the ongoing efforts to rehabilitate Marawi City with Moro Consensus Group chairman Drieza Lininding.
