Zambales towns still without power

SEVEN of the 13 towns in Zambales have been experiencing total or partial blackout since Friday morning after workers of the local power supplier walked out.

Authorities said some 500,000 residents from 60,000 households are affected by the power outages in Subic, Castillejos, San Marcelino, San Antonio, San Narciso, San Felipe and Cabangan.

Workers walked from their respective posts in support of officials of the Zambales Electric Cooperative (ZAMECO II) who vacated their offices in response to the court order affirming the petition filed by the previous ZAMECO officials.

Zameco II interim board chairman Dominador Gallardo received the writ of injunction order issued by Olongapo City RTC Branch 75 Judge Raymond Viray which orders Gallardo and his other officials to vacate their offices giving way to the former officials to assume their duties.

“Nakakalungkot dahil malinaw na isang panig lamang ang pinakinggan ng hukom,” said Gallardo.

In support to Gallardo and his group, workers from all Zameco II offices in the seven municipalities, including those from the Sub-Station in Castillejos, walked out from their posts.

Rumors spread that some Zameco II employees in Castillejos took equipment from the power sub-station which caused the brownout. Ruben A. Veloria - Peoples Journal


There are text messages circulating in the province that the real cause of the walkout is the "pakikialam ng mga Magsaysay sa kuryente"

  • This is an outrage. My wife and baby are stuck there with no communication or fridge or fans. How dare they? When is this situation going to be fixed. I am overseas so there is nothing I can do from here. I am disgusted that this is allowed to happen. The Government needs to immediately intervene. This form of protest is cruel and barbaric.
