Zamcelco-Crown-Desco IMC gets overwhelming approval from owners


It’s final, the joint venture of Crown and Desco will officially manage the Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative under the Investment Management Contract (IMC).

This after the owners (member-consumers) of the Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative (Zamcelco) present overwhelmingly approved a resolution yesterday for Crown-Desco to manage the ailing cooperative, during the conduct of a Special General Membership Assembly (SGMA) at the Zamcelco gymnasium in barangay Putik.

Former Mayor Manny Dalipe presented the resolution calling for the approval by the members of the bidding conducted earlier by the board of directors and was seconded by Letty Delos Reyes, former barangay official of Culianan.

According to Zamcelco Board President Omar Sahi, an estimated 10,000 member consumers attended the assembly and nobody registered any opposition to the motion of Dalipe.

Sahi said the board will now convene for the passage of a resolution which will be addressed to the National Electrification Administration (NEA) for confirmation of the IMC to the joint venture of Crown-Desco.

Sahi also assured that the conduct of the SGMA was in order, and that the proper procedure in calling for the said gathering was strictly followed.

“Talla gane el maga representatives del NEA na assembly meaning okay ya sila con el diamun trabaho,” Sahi emphasized.

“Antes tiene pa raffle con el maga gente para atende lang con el AGMA pero ahora, masquin nuay ya raffle, ya anda gayot sila atende. Bien aburido ya maga gente cay ta sufri ya sila na blackout. Ahora tiene ya un grande investor ay pone P2.5 billion. Tiempo ya para resolve ya todo el problema del Zamcelco,” Sahi said.

The Board President also expressed his sentiments over the acting manager of Zamcelco, Adelmo Laput for issuing an order to all Zamcelco employees not to help in the conduct of the SGMA yesterday.

“El Task Force Duterte que ta encabesa si Laput yan order con ele para man focus na management y hinde para entra ele mete na IMC. Ya man welcome came con ele pero cosa ele ya ace? ya acaba esconde todo hasta electric fan ya pone na bodega. Bien umalin el custumbre,” Sahi said.

Because of the action of Laput and the employees of Zamcelco, the conduct of the SGMA was affected as only very few employees helped the board members attend to the consumers who went to the assembly.

Many were forced to wait in long lines before they can register manually since the data base of the consumer members, as well as the computers and other facilities of Zamcelco were not allowed to be used by Laput and the employees.

Sahi said, becuase of what Laput and those who followed his order did, the member consumers of Zamcelco suffered during the SGMA and now want their electric cooperative to move on without the management team designated by NEA.

"Apenas man confirm el NEA con el resulta del SGMA, pwede ya quita prinsipya el rehablitacion del Zamcelco." Sahi said. (SS)
