History of Bunguiao, Zamboanga City
Bunguiao became a Barangay of Zamboanga City by Virtue of Commonwealth Act No. 39, series of 1937.
The Barangay elected its first Barrio Lieutenant after the enactment of Republic Act 1254 (June 10, 1956). Prior to that year, Bunguiao was under the leadership of a Cabeza del Barrio.
It started as a small community in the late 19th or 20th century. During the 1930’s, Bunguiao had its first community chapel constructed under the able leadership of Mr. Jacinto Lovo. The first chapel was built at Zone 4 area where the present house of Mr. Arturo Pangilinan now stands, and was constructed of light materials of wood and nipa.
When World War II broke out, the chapel was temporarily transferred to Sitio Siguinan on the lot of Mr. Jacinto Lovo. After the war, it was transferred back to its original site. By then, the surrounding area of the chapel became filled with residential houses that.
It was around the 1950’s that the chapel was transferred to its present location on the lot of the late Doña Valeria Camins Paulino, mother of the present Punong Barangay.
Bunguiao became a parish in 1992 and on the same site where the last chapel was built, now stands the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Church.

The origin of the name Bunguiao and how it came about
The folklore goes: There was a hunter with a rifle. He shot a wildcat, did not kill it but simply wounded it. The sound of the rifle and the cry of the cat, "Bung" + "Ngiao", became a nick name for the hunter who lived in the area, because he was such a "bad-shot". So whenever anyone was asked where they were heading, and if it's the direction of the hunter's house, they would reply "towards Bung-Ngiao's place". The name stuck. Hence, the name "Bunguiao" was born.

This is the.
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.
- BUDGET: As 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 .
- 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.
- Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of . Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state".

Natural Resources of Bunguiao, 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 and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.

I like surfing the net and it made me sad that Bunguiao has no information or data available. Fortunately my mother is here with me at the moment, by the way I live in Australia. My mother is like a walking history book of Bunguiao she now resides in South San Francisco USA & is presently here with me on holiday and will go back to US via Phil on March2001.
Bunguiao is situated 32 kilometers from the city of Zamboanga and can be reached through a detour between Sanggali and Bolong with a voting population of approximately 7000. Bunguiao is composed of sitios Suiginan, Manga, Licopon, Calingat, Sapa Seco, Campo Lourdes, Waray-waray, Baluno, Nanka, San Isidro and Campo Socorro.
Bunguiao is the chief producer of bananas, coconuts, marang, mangoes, jackfruits and other fruits and vegetables which are sold in the city of Zamboanga. The barangay boasts of the largest number of buses plying back and forth from the city mostly to transport its produces and residents. These buses are very convenient to a large number of employees working in the various government and private offices in the city as well as the adjoining suburbs. Furthermore it is expedient to teachers & students who commutes daily to the different universities and colleges who prefers to live in their own homes rather than staying with relatives or boarding houses.
The barangay of Bunguiao has its own public primary, elementary and high schools as well as daycares and pre-school/kindergarten for the very young.
The site of the Bunguiao Elementary school which is located at the centre of the barangay was donated by the late Dona Valeria Ledesma Camins vda de Paulino as well as the site of the parish church which is about 500 meters from each other.
Religious needs of the predominantly catholic community is provided by the Claretian Fathers headed by Father Emilio Pablo and parish priest Father Jojo. the Claretian community in Bunguiao has two novitiates: one for future priests and another for future nuns who hails from different provinces throughout the Philippines. In fact Father Jojo of Basilan City is a product of this novitiate. Fr Pablo is also the founder and head of the Reflexology Centre composed of seminarians and locals especially trained by him who in return provides free reflexology therapies to the sick and needy in Bunguiao, the city and other surrounding barangays like Dulian, Bolong ect.
