History of Rio Hondo, Zamboanga City
Barangay Rio Hondo is legally created by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 69 dated March 13, 1954, by late President Ramon Magsaysay, Jr.
As related by Pegafitta, the historian and Coulombs, the missionary, Barangay Rio Hondo has long been in existence being occupied by the Spaniards since 1600. In fact, this area was more visible during the construction of Fort Pilar Shrine in 1635 based on the observation of Pegafitta and Coulombs.
This Barangay has been occupied by three classes of Samals:
1. Palaos- the group of Samals who were residing on the sea by means of their boats. They made roof on it, wall covering and served as their residential houses.
2. Bagumbayan- the group of Samals who were residing in the mouth of the rivers, many of them could be seen in Timoza River and Tigtabon where the Islamization began.
3. Cagang-Cagang- These were the group of Samals who resided alongside of the rivers and many of them could be found before in Taluksangay, Recodo and Campo Islam.
Barangay Rio Hondo is being mounted by two rivers. The first can be found at the back of Rio Hondo parking area and the second is separates Barangays Rio Hondo and Mariki, which also serves as natural boundary between the two barangays for almost 30 years now since the political creation of Barangay Mariki in 1976 by late Mayor Joaquin Enriquez, Jr.
Since Rio Hondo is being bounded by the rivers, the name was coined but taking back more than three hundred years ago, the original name of Rio Hondo was Cagang-Cagang.
In October 11, 1965 by virtue of proclamation No. 472 signed by President Diosdado Macapagal, a 5.7 hectare portion of Rio Hondo was carved out and reserved for the Muslim community only.
More Recently: In the late 1970 approximate figure of total population of Barangay Rio Hondo were 4,580 which were about 65% Samal Bangingi. When the war broke out in the province of Sulu way back in 1973-74, there was an exodus of massive immigration from Jolo and other municipalities of Sulu to Zamboanga City, particularly in Rio Hondo. The population drastically rose to about 30% more. At that time the Samal Bangingi gradually vacated the area and scattered in places in Campo Islam, Sta. Catalina, Recodo, Talon-Talon and Mampang for fear to mingle with the Tausugs.
Proclamation No. 472, s. 1965: Muslim Community Site in Zamboanga City
- To pacify the Moros(Muslims) and in the hope of attaining peace president Diosdado Macapagal carved out 5.7 hectares and gave it exclusively to the Muslim community. This kind gesture (weakness) paved the way to the Sharia Law, NCMF, and the ARMM.

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". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

- 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.
