Two High National Execs in Town

PDFPrintE-mail

Yesterday (Monday), eMedia again started to engage in the normal news and current affairs life. Partner eMedia reporter Joseph Zosobrado excitedly mumbled when we were before our individual desktops, BRING IT ON BABY! The pressures in broadcasting are the breakfast, lunch and dinner of eMedia personnel. But folks, it is your assurance that we perform our duties whole-heartedly without a bit of any whining or complaining.

Early morning yesterday, the City’s downtown streets are visibly posted with full battle-geared soldiers and policemen all over by pairs particularly in key junctions. To an ordinary citizen, one can immediately know that something big is on in the City. How about fear induction? Maybe to those who have traumas of last year’s siege, I presume, were again shivering a bit of the obvious uniformed men’s presence. But the general resolve of the City and probably Mayor Beng’s firm comfort shall be, ALL IS WELL. Baranggay eMedia also feels the same, indeed!

The military and police visibility is a security manifestation of the visit to the city yesterday of two high-ranking and powerful executives of the Aquino government. They are no less than Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas and Department of National Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin.

The two executives were in Zamboanga to join the City’s “Victoria y Paz” commemoration held at the City Hall in remembrance of last year’s siege. By recollection, on September 29 of last year, DILG Secretary Mar Roxas announced officially that “the Zamboanga siege is over”. It is on that concept that the City Hall celebrated the said commemoration.

The same duo, Sec. Roxas and Sec. Gazmin, were also the first national high officials who came to Zamboanga to stand and walk in the siege’s ground zero. They too personally climbed up the same infamous KGK building in Lustre Street. They were the executives relaying the authority of the President to command the grounds on the siege.

Days are very fast and it’s now a year already. The siege is just a part of Zamboanga’s colorful history. Just to remind our younger readers, lest you are forgetting, Zamboanga’s struggle for its peace and order is way traceable yet during the Spanish time. Zamboanga at that era was a garrison and a protectorate of the Spanish Crown in the Philippine South from Moro invasions and marauding.

After the independence, a different wave of struggle replaced the former Conquistador-Moro animosity then to the locals and the Moro rebels. Few more years, on October 12, 1936, Zamboanga became a chartered city under Commonwealth Act No. 39.

The very truth is thatZamboangaCity a melting pot comprising different mixtures that are including peace-loving peoples from the South who are now prosperous in the City, Bisayans from the Visayas and some other peoples from Luzon.

eMedia wishes to thank Welmar Marketing, Natures Spring, Shell Minimart in Mercedez, Banua Family of Divisoria, Matte & Samuel Agustin, Motortrade Veterans, Yubengco Mall, Totoh Sales and family, Steve Loo, Corazon Francisco, Untied Nation Economic and Social Council, IPC-3rd Division Mindanao Command, Zamboanga City  for their generosity in giving out donations in cash and in kind for the relief drive that was extended immediately to the fire victims in Lacasteville, Pasonanca who are now temporarily sheltered in Pasonanca Elementary School.

The said fire is still on investigation. Baranggay Pasonanca did well in its response to an unpredicted calamity. Fire is a fortuitous event which every unit of government in the republic, as mandated now by law, to be efficient and all-the-time readyfor any calamity. The barangay officials of Pasonanca with its barangay captain Efigenio “Jun” Julian showed to Zamboanga and the country to its preparedness.

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matt. 5:16
