History of Lunzuran, Zamboanga City

Long before the Spaniards came, the whole Zamboanga was covered with forest except the areas along the shores. The natives engaged in fishing, they inhabited the shore lines. Upon their arrival, the Spaniards undertook at once the task of building a town, which is at present the city of Zamboanga.

This town became a center, so that, it prospered and expanded to its present boundaries. Many people made good in the place, so they decided to settle there permanently with their families.

It was then Moros harassed the foreigners while they were on campaign. The Spaniards reached the farthest place where the settlers built their homes. On their way, they met a man carrying bundles of vegetables. The soldier who wish to know the name of the place, asked him in Spanish, “Que se llamas estoy lugar?” The man did not understand what he was talking about. All he thought the Spaniard was asking him where he was going, so he answered, “sa lungsod”, which is in Visayan dialect, meaning “going to town”. Since the Spaniard found difficulty in saying the Visayan word, he pronounced it as “lunzur”, until many settlers heard it, until many people modified the place as “lunzuran” which meant pleasant and so romantic to hear.

Barangay’s power and authority

This is the “Barangay Code of the Philippines”.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress, not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads need to be built or any infrastructure within the barangay is needed, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and demand for it from the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.”

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality’s “Sangguniang Panlungsod”. They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, “Sangguniang Panlungsod” does not have the power to remove any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Information is power. Be informed.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible.

  • BUDGETAs far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn’t come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply “distributes” the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as “Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency”. It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in “TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284.”
  • Imperial Manila does not exist anymore. Budgetary planning has been “DECENTRALIZED since 1991.”.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. After the election they forget you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

PUBLIC NOTICE: Why pretend that the National language of the Philippines is Tagalog? It should be English. To be a Teacher, doctor, lawyer, engineer, architect, nurse, computer technician; what books do you learn from? English books of course. All your tests are in English. The constitution of the Philippines is written in English. All the laws and new laws introduced by congress are in English. For that matter, you can’t be a teacher in a school system unless you know English. The “Licensure Exam for Teachers” is in ENGLISH! Who are these people forcing Tagalog down our throats? Tagalog is simply one of the many dialects of the Philippines. Keep your dialects but learn and be proficient in ENGLISH.

Natural Resources of Lunzuran, Zamboanga City

A river runs through Lunzuran and it flows down through the barangay of Putik. During the rainy season and when it floods, often the river brings down tons of river sand. Some of the sand get trapped above the irrigation damn. It is necessary to remove the sand so as not to hamper the irrigation system. However, this removal of truck loads of sand also provides income for the barangay. It provides labor for the unemployed and it also improves the economy of Lunzuran.

The city dug a deep weel and constructed a unit to house the water pump. The location of the well is near the the bank of the river by the hanging bridge. Electricity drives the water pump and the residents of Lunzuran are provided with clean drinking water.

Please upload a picture of the hanging bridge and the water pump house.
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 RiversDo 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.

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 and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
