Gov. Solon: Govt improving people’s lives

MALAPATAN, Sarangani (April 25, 2021) – Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon graces the Serbisyo Caravan para sa Sarangan at Barangay Kinam on April 21. Solon recalled the struggles they had just to reach Kinam. “Dili ko katuo nga in 20 minutes maabot na namo ang Kinam from Daan Suyan kay kaniadto halos tunga sa adlaw ang kinahanglan para maabot ning lugara pero karon naa nay dalan nga mas sayon og makahatag og dakong tabang para kanatong tanan,” he said. The governor also acknowledged the hard work of then Kinam barangay captain, Mayor Salway Sumbo Jr., for his efforts to realize the road project. Solon also asked the locals of Kinam to pray for all the provincial leaders for additional strength to extend more assistance to all the far-flung communities in Sarangani. Despite the ongoing pandemic, Solon with the rest of the provincial officials is working hard to deliver services for the welfare of every Sarangan. The governor also centered his talk on Covid-19 and reminded all the locals to always practice the minimum health protocols. “Maski pa og layo mo sa sentro sa Covid-19 diri sa inyong lugar, naa gihapoy chance nga masudlan mo, kinahanglan nga magtinabangay gyud ta para dili makasulod diri ang virus,” he added. The governor ended his talk by offering a prayer for all the dwellers of Kinam for their protection from the virus and for more developments to be poured in the barangay. The Serbisyo Caravan para sa Sarangan was simultaneously conducted with the Serbisyong Segurado sa Barangay of the local government of Malapatan, Ronda Probinsya alang sa Kalinaw of Deputy Speaker Congressman Rogelio “Ruel” Pacquiao, and the 49th foundation anniversary of Barangay Kinam.

As an ELCAC community, various medical, agricultural, livelihood, environmental, educational, and other basic social services were provided in Kinam during the caravan. Kinam is one of the barangays in the province to receive P20 million funding for the barangay projects and programs from the Local Government Support Fund-Support to Barangay Development Program (LGSF-SBDP) 2021 under the General Appropriations Act 2021 which will be implemented this year. According to Barangay Captain Ruben Sumbo, the priority project for the P20 million fund will be intended for the concreting of roads in the barangay. Barangay Kinam was once one of the farthest and most hard-to-reach barangays in Sarangani that required half a day of a bumpy ride with over 20 river crossings to reach the center of the community. Through the governor’s strong desire to provide access to the rural communities, the people of Kinam restored their hope and brought change into their lives. Having a closer road to reach the town proper was also one of the reasons why the former rebels turned to the government. Also present during the Serbisyo Caravan were Board Members Joseph Calanao, Arman Guili, Irish Louie Arnado-Beñola, Ephraim Galzote, Rheymar Dian and Corazon Grafilo. Dr. Grafilo conducted an eye check up to some residents of Kinam. Vice Mayor Jean Delos Santos and the rest of the municipal and barangay officials were also present during the activity.

MALAPATAN, Sarangani (April 25, 2021) – Mayor Salway Sumbo Jr. and Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon lead the conduct of the Serbisyo Caravan para sa Sarangan at Barangay Kinam on April 21. In his speech, Sumbo recalled the hardships he experienced during the times when he was still the barangay captain of Kinam. “Ang inyohang pag-ampo, na tagaan natog hustisya kay dili na ta magbakatas, dili na mangamatay ang atong mga tao nga naigog mga sakit nga ma-stranded lang sa gilid sa sapa og dili na kadiritso sa hospital,” said Sumbo. He also assured that the road concreting is on top among his priorities for Malapatan. “Gi-priotity gyud nato ang kadalanan kay para sa ako, kung walay dalan, magpabilin gihapon ang kalisod sa atong kinabuhi,” he said. He also urged the residents of Kinam to continue planting crops even as there are road concreting projects underway. “Magkugi ta sa pagtanom, bisag naa pa tay dalan kung kita mismo diri sa kabukiran magpatamad-tamad og pasagdan gihapon nato ang mga tao nga mag samok-samok, maglisod gihapon tag kab-ot sa atong ginahinam nga kabag-uhan,” Sumbo added. The mayor also acknowledged the former rebels who are now part of the peacekeepers called “Bagani” who are assisting the Armed Forces of the Philippines in guarding the area against communist groups trying to disturb the peace and order of the community. On the other hand, Governor Solon assured that huge developmental projects will be coming in the area. (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)

Govt services pour into Kinam as rebels evaporate

MALAPATAN, Sarangani (April 23, 2021) - Provincial and local government officials lead the distribution of food packs to locals of Barangay Kinam on April 21 during the conduct of Serbisyo Caravan para sa Sarangan, Ronda Probinsya para sa Kalinaw, and Serbisyong Segurado para sa Barangay programs. It was led by Congressman Ruel Pacquaio, Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon, Vice Governor Elmer de Peralta, Mayor Salway Sumbo Jr., Vice Mayor Jean delos Santos, and Provincial Director Engr. Samuel Camaganacan of the Department of the Interior of Local Government. The Serbisyo Caravan is part of the Retooled Community Support Program (RCSP) - an umbrella program under Executive Order No. 70 institutionalizing the whole-of-nation approach to End Local Communist Armed Conflict in the country (ELCAC). It aims to integrate government programs and efforts to actively engage the involvement of the sectors and communities in the farthest barangays in the province. Kinam is among the 16 far-flung communities all over Sarangani which were identified based on the guidelines of the Armed Forces of the Philippines as having been “cleared” from the activities of the CPP-NPA and will benefit from the services provided during the caravan. Members of the Bagani group also assisted the AFP in the distribution of the food packs. The Bagani (Warrior) are former rebels who had surrendered to the government and decided to go back to the fold of the law and volunteered to aid the military in securing the uplands against the illegal activities of the leftist groups. These FRs have received initial support from the government as they went back to the mainstream of society, and are yet to receive more as they are set to be enrolled in the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP).

Kinam cleared of NPAs, Philippine Army-built road shortens travel from 12 hours to 30 minutes

MALAPATAN, Sarangani (April 23, 2021) – A Serbisyo Caravan vehicle of the provincial government journeys through the newly-opened road going to Barangay Kinam via Barangay Daan Suyan to deliver the needed services for the residents of Kinam on April 21. The road-opening project, which started in 2020, was the initiative of the partnership of the provincial government of Sarangani, local government of Malapatan, and the 52nd Engineer Brigade – 512th Engineer Construction Battalion, in response to the mandate of President Duterte thru Executive Order No. 70 “institutionalizing the whole-of-nation approach creating a national task force to end local communist armed conflict or ELCAC.” With the road-opening project, government services were able to reach the far-flung barangay of Kinam and brought an end to insurgency in the community. According to Tata Sinon, 33, a farmer from Sitio Masandig, before the road was opened, it would take farmers half-a-day of 23 river-crossing via horse-riding from Kinam to Daan Suyan, and another half-a-day from Daan Suyan to Lun Padidu in bringing their products of copra, corn, abaca, and upland rice to the market. He even lamented that back then, half of their products would be damaged and go to waste whenever the water level in the river is high. Sinon added the residents of the barangays have also been suffering in the early 90s to early 2000s due to armed conflict between the New People’s Army rebels and government troops. With the road now opened in the highlands, it would only take a 20 to 30-minute ride from Kinam to Daan Suyan via motorcycle or pick-up truck. Farm products would be delivered with ease and would be of high quality and price, delivery of basic social and economic services to the people is no longer hampered, and development has thrived as peace is now achieved in the community.
