Was it coincidence or sabotage?

Friends and supporters of Congressman Erbie A. Fabian asked this question when a three-hour unannounced blackout hit Culianan when he formally launched his mayoralty bid in that barangay yesterday morning.

Fuerza Zamboanga, the group behind Fabian’s bid, was irked by the surprise power outage that happened in time for the program prepared for the formal declaration of Fabian’s political decision.

Residents of Culianan, Mercedes and other nearby barangays said that blackouts usually happen from 30 minutes to one hour in that area, and they were puzzled by the three-hour power failure yesterday morning.

One of the Fuerza Zamboanga leaders suspects that a Zamcelco insider, who is a supporter of Fabian’s political rival, is behind what was believed as a “dirty trick” to sabotage Fabian.

Another Fuerza leader claimed that another sabotage move was the holding of an activity yesterday intended to discourage barangay leaders from attending Fabian’s gathering in Culianan.
