As nobody wants to take responsibility for the conduct of the event, the Office of the City Administrator has decided to strike off the ‘wet and wild party’ from the Zamboanga Hermosa calendar of events.

The wet and wild party, slated Saturday, October 3 at the Zamboanga Golf Course and Beach Park in Calarian from 4pm to 12 midnight was initially included in the list of activities for the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival 2015 per request from the organizing committee through the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA).

OIC City Administrator Dr. Elmeir Apolinario said per verification, the TIEZA management has denied organizing such event but pointed to Christopher Zerna of the Blue Moon Event Planning as the sole planner/coordinator of such event.

However, upon inquiry, Zerna claimed the said activity is not organized by his group but by JCI Sibugay, a non-government organization.

In view of this information and per recommendation from City Police Director PSSupt. Angelito Casimiro who cited a memorandum from Sinunuc Police Station Commander P/CInsp. Hingming Ladjaali, Apolinario decided to strike off the said activity from the festival calendar.

If ever the organizers wish to push through with the event, the same will be unsanctioned by the authorities. — Sheila Covarrubias
