Fluvial Parade

COTABATO CITY - It's all systems go for the Jan. 29 fluvial parade of at least 500 boats that combined groups of peace stakeholders led by the Maguindanao-based Army's 6th Infantry Division (ID) have conceived to dramatize their support to the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro (FAB).

Amid the snowballing support to the FAB, leaders of ethnic tribes or indigenous peoples' (IP) groups within and outside the proposed areas of Bangsamoro entity have sounded off cooperation in separate gatherings, asserting as well their rights to equitable representation to the transition body of the political region.

Last week, chieftains and members of the Teduray tribe in Upi, Maguindanao and Sama ethnic group in Tawi-Tawi were joined by their counterparts from the Mandaya and other IP tribes in Davao Oriental in passing resolutions supportive of the FAB and batting for a representation to the Transition Commission that would draft the basic law of the Bangsamoro entity.

    "I was denied warranty once for changing my horn!" One very annoyed reader wrote. "I was told that placing a backup camera will void my warranty" said another.
