Six more days, then it be the City Fiesta already! Celebrations are presumed to be more joyous this time than the last year’sas considering that Zamboanga was deprived from such because of its almost 1 month siege by the Misuari faction. Except for the religious activities other colorful traditions were have to be cancelled due to the City’s still volatile peace and order. But no more today, thus, the mood now is twice as much than 2013.
In a live interview yesterday in eMedia,through the report of partner Joseph Zosobrado in the primetime program of “Emedia Mo” at 6-8AM hostedbypartners GIL Climaco and Rey Bayona Bayoging, Police Station II Chief,Police Senior Superintendent (PSI) Allan Nazarro, disclosed the security plans of the upcoming fiesta. He said that the security of the City, at the Fort Pilar Complex and particularly at theShrine itselfis a100 % guarantee and tight, 24/7. Men in uniform are in visible foot patrol, mobile by motorized and manual bicycles, and posting in key spots. Bomb squads are also around with their bomb sniffing dogs.
Tight security can really be felt especially when one enters the Shrine, bags are checked and are done meticulously. The City’s law enforcers learnt the hard lessons of the last year’s intrusion. The philosophy that Zamboanga can NEVER be attacked because of the police and the military installations here gave a false sense of security to Zamboangueños. But such is proven to be a myth when Misuari’swas able to break the City’s record of impregnability! Hence, everyone is now awakened as not to take the chances. My eMediacolleagues often comment that a part II must NEVER happen!And to my opinion it cannot because everyone is now co-operating and helping keep the City’s peace and order.
Futher, PSI Nazarro made an appeal in the said interview to the public as not to anymore carry knapsacks or bigger bags when they wish to visit the Shrine because they may be delayed in the process of inspections. After all, their visitsare primarily religious and not a stroll in a park. He also said that the Cityhall will decide then anytime if when the “Citywalk” fiesta-traditionwill start.
Meanwhile, despite of his busy schedules, eMediaStation Manager Belsie Agustin gave a quality time for an interview to this humble writer about his special segment “El Negosyo” on Mondays from 4-5 PM and replayon Saturdays at 10-11 AM. SM Agustin remarked that he loves to produce the program because it airs feats of local businessmen who usually started from small beginnings but because of their industry and tenacity had improved and became successful. His drive to the program is to show to the public the one which he calls “the best practice” of these local entrepreneurs that others can emulate. eMedia’s current affairs are not only news broadcasting but are also involving way of discovering the means and alleviations of the economic life of the Zamboangueños.
Yesterday, SM Agustin featured in his program the famous Jimmy’s Satti and the Zampex comprising more or less than 90 exhibitors both local and international. Some are from Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei bringing their products of food, handicrafts and technology in the exhibit.
For other hot and fresh news,eMediareporter Gino Franco Torres pushed yesterday morning to personally see the watershed (National Park) in Pasonanca. Indeed, the water level rose to a certain alarmingheight and its flow is affecting worse the Tugbunganoutletasits level was almost spilling over alreadyfrom the river wall.
While climbing to the watershed,eMediareporterGino Franco Torres was alsoable to get footages of the almost invisible Mt. Pulumbato because of the fogs as resulted from the weeklong rains. It was such a sight to behold!
Last Sunday also, two trees fell along the Limbaga Road, Pasonancadue to the strong winds and the heavy downpours. This scenario is usual in Zamboanga City comes the month of October.
In Sumisip, Basilan eMediacorrespondent Joel Zanoria reported about a boy, while gathering fire woods accidentally stamped a live bomb unknowingly and denoted it. The said boy died fatally because of innumerable shrapnels littered all over his young body. His cadaver was immediately buried based in the custom of the Muslim tradition.
“The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a false hope for victory; nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, on those who hope for His loving-kindness…” Ps. 63:16-18
