NEWS: Kabir, a political animal no more- Comval Pagro

oct 20

The kabir chicken that former Compostela Valley Gov. Jose “Joecab” Caballero had then been massively reproducing and dispersing in droves of thousands to the farmers in the province is political animal no more under the administration of Gov. Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy.

In an interview, provincial agriculturist Dr. Rolando Simene said that the provincial government is no longer dispersing kabir but only maintaining about 400 kabirs at the Lamdag center for breeding with the local bisaya and other chicken breeds for experimentation.

He said that Uy remained committed to develop further the sprawling 97-hectare Lamdag agri-eco-tourism center of the provincial government at Pasian, Monkayo.

He added that the governor is actively pursuing to develop more the fresh milk production from the buffalo stock at the agricultural center in view of the melamine scare in the country.

In early 2000s Caballero started the development of the Lamdag center which was then lying as idle, neglected provincial farm barn since when the province was not yet separated from Davao del Norte.

There was one time that the former governor was named by the monicker “Cabirero” by his oppositionists including the present governor, who was then serving as the senior boardmember during Caballero’s third term.

Uy before becoming a boardmember ran but was defeated by the recent birthday celebrator last Saturday, provincial elder Prospero Amatong during the 1999 toss up for the district 1 congressional post. They had only a margin of over 1,000 votes in the election where Uy was then allied with Caballero.

Earlier reports said that Caballero would be running for a “comeback either-or”, meaning either as congressman in District 1 where he was defeated by Cong. Rommel “Bobong” Amatong in the last polls, or as governor.

This developed as reports also said that District 1 Cong. Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora is also entertaining to run as governor in the province, besides eyeing to run as mayor in Compostela town.

If Joecab’s comeback is realized, he would no longer have thousands of kabirs in his hand. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News) http://ruralurbanews.blogspot.com
