History of Mariki, Zamboanga City

It was in the early seventies during which, we witnessed rebellion rose to its greatest heights. In Mindanao particularly the Provinces of Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Basailan, the Zamboanga Peninsula, the Lanao Provinces, the Provinces of Catabato and Davao, the movement was spearheaded by the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) headed by its Chairman Nurullaji Misuari.

It was unprecedented in the history of the Republic considering that finally on September 21, 1972, President Ferdinand E. Marcos placed the entire country under Martial Law. This was done to contain armed rebellion by force with the end in view of exterminating the leaders and discouraging followers and sympathizers alike in furthering the causes of the movement. Indeed, it was a show of might on the part of the government.

Unfortunately, the MNLF seemingly can match the government with its equally lethal weapons and with highly trained and mobile forces endowed with successful guerilla tactics designed to confront conventional warfare.

Confronted with this phenomenon, the state fully realizes that for it to succeed the war, hand in hand with the military campaign, socio-economic and civic programs should be in placed in order to win the hearts and minds of the rebels and sympathizers back to the folds of the law and become productive citizenry mindful of the welfare and the future of their children in particular and the nation in general.

Thus, we saw the birth of the so called “policy of attraction” that was mainly responsible for the return to the folds of the law by many of the prominent leaders and followers of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) who became leaders themselves by assuming key military, political and executive positions in the government.

We saw various socio-economic and civic programs being implemented which benefited much to the improvement of the welfare and well-being of the common tao, and thus, we likewise witnessed the social and economic fulfillment among the constituents reaping dividends in terms of relatively and substantially stable peace and order condition in the region.

In 1975, a project known as Sahaya Village was established in Mariki, then a sitio of Barangay Rio Hondo, Zamboanga City, by the government through the Southern Philippines Development Authority (SPDA) pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 472. Said project triggered the exodus of people from the neighboring provinces into Mariki and due to its ideal geographical location and by virtue of the fact that Zamboanga city is the center of commerce and host to prominent educational institutions, many opted to establish residency in the area not only for economic reasons but foremost, the education of their children.

This reality propelled Mariki into full pledge Barangay after satisfying all the basic requirements for the establishment of the same, particularly in terms of population, income and geographical size. Such creation was likewise in pursuance of PD 472.

Finally, in 1987 the NAMRIA released aerial photograph showing the boundaries of Rio Hondo and Mariki from east is Sumariki and from the west is the river bank of Rio Hondo as boundaries of the two barangays, copies of which were furnished to all agencies concerned. And as certified by the office of SPDA, it owns the property under Lot 1278, which is known as Lupa-Lupa and the area is 3,085 sq. m. located at Mariki Sahaya Village, Zamboanga City.

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
