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.
