History of Mampang, Zamboanga City
The place Mampang became a barangay of the city upon the enactment of Commonwealth Act No. 39, s. 1937. It is one of the 98 barangays of the City of Zamboanga.
The only tale in existence that tells how Mampang got its name is that which parents are called by their children, a dearly name fondly addressed to a mother and father especially Zamboangueños.
It was hundred of years ago when the Spaniards landed in Zamboanga. After establishing a permanent settlement in the poblacion, the Spanish conquistadores attempted to look for other areas where to settle. In one of these attempts, a Spanish officer came to a thick forested mangrove after cruising in a banca along the eastern shores of Zamboanga.
It was low tide thus; they had to walk on land. While walking through the bushes, they saw a native girl picking up tops of bushes. The Spanish officer asked the girl the name of the place in Spanish, “Hija, que se llama este lugar?” The girl, frightened upon seeing the strangers in uniform for the first time, shouted “Mang…Pang…” which later on came to be known as the name of the barangay.
The residents of Mampang today are proud of this name of their Barangay. With pride, they consider their barangay as the only barangay in the archipelago created and named out of their love for their parents. That it came into existence because of the union of our Mama and Papa and the dearly name fondly called to our mother and father.

- 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.
