Fidelity is Forever

When we became a full-pledge member, we take the Oath: " solemnly swear, to do honor and abide by the Constitution and by-laws of the AKP..." Then we pledged to "...faithfully and truly perform my duty, to uphold and promote the objectives of the AKP..." And we ask God for His assistance for the upcoming endeavors.

Objectively, we made ourselves committed to the ideals of the Fraternity, and subjectively, we bind ourselves to fulfill our duties as one of the brothers used to say: "Our obligation to the Fraternity is a lifetime commitment!". True, but what we need TODAY is Fidelity to what we take Oath!

Fidelity probes each WORTH. It is a matter of great importance for each one of us in achieving our GOALS, in upholding our OBJECTIVES and in keeping our COMMITMENTS as well. Without fidelity, we aren't worth anything at all.

We are what we are committed to... Longlive!

Since we have committed ourselves to the Ideals of the Alpha Kappa Rho, therefore, we have committed ourselves to the SERVICES of the Fraternity and Sorority, for we are born into The Alpha Kappa Rho FAMILY in order to SERVE regardless of our status, etc.. Thus, Loyalty and Fidelity.. is highly recommended.

Our Committed Services toward The Hierarchy is what our Fraternity and Sorority is all about: "We are what we are committed to", says a Jesuit Priest, "and without commitment we are nothing. "Because in a fundamental sense, our commitment defines us.

Our Commitment is geared up to make us a better person, a humanitarian in the process. We tend to love God, first and foremost, in all corners of our lives and everything should be coordinated to it as orderly, thats GOD-Country-Family-School/Community-Fraternity.

We can make a difference in this world if we keep it well. But if we make commitment, failed to keep it, that would say a lot about The Fraternity and Sorority we have.

We can feel miserable sometimes when we look at those brothers and sisters who did not bring anything to the commitment, especially, those who failed to realize what our commitment is all about.

We can bring time or money or talent or anything to the commitment: we can spend time with the councils and help them promoting Goodwill. We can donate money or canned goods or rice or used clothing to help provide our brothers and sisters in their "Bundles of Joy Projects" or in their "Prison Visit Program" because we want to be a part of it. We can donate blood for a brother or sister in confinement and for our "Bloodletting Project" because we still have much to give. We can make sacrifices and say a lot of prayers for the conversion of our deliquent members and for those who are in need, for this is the only thing we can bring to the COMMITMENT. Our donation brings us together with our brothers and sisters in their projects. In that way, we are still united with our commitment and we are still committed with them in our Services.

Our Loyalty and Fidelity has to be nurtured and our Commitment has to be understood: That it is all about Love towards God and neighbors. That it is all about Service, in His Name, and to the least of the people. Since our commitment has to be permanent, Our Fidelity to what we have committed would also make our lives fulfilled.

Keeping our commitments shall always keep us "Alive". Our Loyalty and Fidelity, shall always keep the fire burning... "The burning fire of the Alpha Kappa Rho."

May the Lord bless our almighty Alpha Kappa Rho always... Longlive! 

Longlive Humanitarians!

Mother Teresa have touched the world through her missionary works among the poor. Because of such dedication, a journalist ask her: "Why devote so much time with these people, why not pray instead for the world peace?" She answered, "I shall pray for the peace of the world,
but for the main time allow me to nurse them."

Touched as I am, I have shared this sentiment to the class quoting: "If there's anything better in life than to be Loved... It is Loving." Then I presented before them an Art, featuring the poor and needy, to remind them of the people we often neglected and deliberately ignored.

In the hope of moving the hearts to compassion, I had roamed around, getting along with the people that sleeps in the sideways, on the overpasses and in the alleys so I could get my picture of their deprived life. One couldn't help but pity, but it takes a compassionate heart to feel them in their miseries.

In our sad world of so much poverty, and so much need, there is a great need for us to share them what we have to make them feel that they are Loved. We can give food to the homeless that sleeps in the alleys at nights. We can give bundles-of -joys to the people that lives in the dumpsites, or conduct a feeding activity with the poor community like those in the slums. We have to be involved with the poor and with those who do not have as much as we have. Isn't our goal is to become a
brother to all?

I can be a little more concerned for the poor and needy among us. I don't have to be fighting all the time. Rivalry doesn't make sense. What is power, influence when the glory is vain? We can try to love the way Christ loved. We can be more gentle and forgiving. We don't have to be fighting all the time. We can turn ourselves around and begin to think about other people and what they need. And not just be concerned with ourselves all the time.

Gandhi said one time that we can all begin to be happy only when we realize that "every man is my brother, every woman is my sister." Christ said, "Whatever you did to the least of my brothers, you
did it for Me." and so Mother Teresa have ended up the question when she told the journalist saying: "Why don't you do something beautiful for God?" Maybe that is the challenge for us all to realize our goal especially for this Christmas season . Why dont we do something beautiful for God - and for the poor?

Lastly, Let us be reminded of what St.Francis of Assisi is wont to say: "If there's any goodness that i can do, or any kindness that i can show. Let me do it now, for I shall never pass this way again." And so my dear brothers, while we have time. Let us do good!

For The Greater Honor and Glory...Love shall be our strength! Longlive!

Imploring the aid of the devine providence in order to build a just and humane society and establish Alpha Kappa Rho that shall embody our ideas and aspirations to promote to our selves Service, Love, Brotherhood that will foster Truth, Peace, Equality, and unity among us that will lead directly to welfare of our Fraternity, Sorority, Family, Community, and Country do ordain and promulgate this Constitution and by Laws. So help me God…

The Merging of the OMEGA and ZETA UPSILON

In 1976 the merging of OMEGA Fraternity and Sorority of San Sebastian College and ZETA UPSILON Fraternity of U.E. (University of the East) Recto with the ALPHA KAPPA RHO (AKRHO) Intercollegiate Service Fraternity and Sorority mark the beginning of the growth of ALPHA KAPPA RHO. The population of AKP commenced in greater numbers, expanding aggressively in massive members welcomed and much stronger than any other fraternities in the U-Belt (University Belt) area. The word AKRHO was established and among those being feared by rival fraternities.[2]

The growth of the AKP in 1975 was because of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth with the coherent full cooperation, strong powers and determinations of our brothers and sisters of F.E.U. (Far Eastern University), P.S.B.A. (Philippine School of Business Administration) and N.C.B.A. (National College of Business and Arts) and San Sebastian College chapters with the help of the High School Skeptrons headed by Bro JUN "LABO" Pasaporte then called the DELTA KAPPA RHO of Junior Skeptrons.

These five mentioned universities were the key factors in the growth of the ALPHA KAPPA RHO (AKRHO) Intercollegiate Service Fraternity and Sorority. Bro Jun "Labo" Pasaporte devoted his time and life for AKRHO. He died in July 17, 2003 at age 45 in Manila, Philippines.

In addition to the adaption of the ALPHA KAPPA RHO Sorority, other fraternities and sororities with the same thoughts and feelings as that of the ALPHA KAPPA RHO at that time merged with it. From these mergers evolved one practice which becomes the hallmark of our group.

For one, the noble, the traditional hand mark and its handclasp was a covenant agreed by our foreleaders from both ALPHA KAPPA RHO and the Omega Fraternity and Sorority, Inc. Reresented by our OFSI Brothers from San Sebastian College, Bro Alex Ramirez, Bro Dennie Ravarra, Bro Alex Mangubat, to name a few, and together with the Officers of the founding Members and the Officers of ALPHA KAPPA RHO, they signed pledge for and in behalf of each other’s group. This merge which happened in September 1976 at Rancho, Marikina (then a municipality) was momentous for to this day we carry in our hands the mark of synthesis, the handclasp that set a strong bond and true unity under one name, the ALPHA KAPPA RHO.

The Awakening Era of AKRHO 888

In August 8, 2008, exactly 35 years since the fraternity was established, the first National Convention was held at Amaranto Stadium, Quezon City which was attended by more than a thousand members from the Philippines and abroad. The first National Supreme Council was likewise established.

Si Insp. Wilson Abot, hepe sa Station-5, nibutyag nga kagahapon sa kadlawon usa ka Joemar Budlas, taga dakbayan sa Lapu-Lapu, ni-report sa ilang buhatan nga siya gitulis sa tulo ka mga tawo.
Nakuha gikan kaniya ang usa ka PSP nga mokantidad og P14,000.
Gawas nga siya gitulis gidapatan pa gyod siya sa mga tulisan.
Sa dihang gipakita sa kapulisan ang hulagway sa mga badlungon sa ilang dapit, positibong giila sa biktima ang panagway ni Rudylyn hinungdan nga gipahigayon ang hot pursuit operation.
Si Rudylyn nasikop didto na sa ilang balay ug wa na makuha ang PSP, apan nakuhaan kinig usa ka .38 paltik revolver ug adunay tulo ka mga bala human nisuway unta sa pagsukol.
Matod ni Abot nga si Rudylyn ilado nang tulisan sa ilang jurisdiction. Gani na priso na kini kaniadto.
Samtang nalambigit usab siya sa mga tulis kaniadto sa ilang dapit sama sa mga taxi driver. Apan ang gikatahapan nihimakak sa pasangil.
Matod niya nga wa siya manulis samtang ang armas nga nakuha sa mga pulis di iyaha ug wala kini makuha sa iyang posesyon. Ang inahan sa suspek nga si Linda niingon nga di tulisan ang iyang anak kay buotan kini.

Akrho to avoid trouble, despite ‘trauma’

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

AN Alpha Kappa Rho (Akrho) fraternity official yesterday assured there will be no backlash in Cebu, after one of their members was mauled and accused of starting trouble when the Bar exams ended in Manila last Sunday.

Akrho’s Central Visayas chairman, Eric Agcaoili, said they won’t seek vengeance for Jed Carlo Lazaga, a law student of the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R).

Akrho and Tau Gamma Phi fraternity signed a peace covenant in Cebu in 2008.

Television reports from Manila since Monday have identified Lazaga as a possible suspect, but USJ-R officials said he was grabbed by a group, allegedly from Tau Gamma, then robbed and falsely accused of causing the explosion.

No complaint has been filed against him.

“We are sad that our student and school have been dragged into this without clear basis,” said USJ-R College of Law Dean Jonathan Capanas.

After the incident, Lazaga did not go to his classes, said Capanas, who described him as a consistent honor student.

“We don’t know exactly the impact of the incident on him. But I’m sure this is a traumatic experience for him. It’s not easy to be accused of throwing an explosive resulting to the injuries of many innocent people,” he said in a text message.

Capanas further said USJR has sent a legal team to Manila to look into the incident, and may press charges against those involved in mauling Lazaga once they are identified.

After meeting with Capanas, Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 Director Ager Ontog Jr. said his office is ready to give Lazaga security if he needs it.

Director Ontog told Atty. Capanas the PRO 7 is not involved in the investigation and that a special task force has been created in Manila to handle it.

In the meantime, Ontog said, there is no need to meet with fraternities in Cebu for a dialogue.

“There will be no hostility,” Agcaoili told Sun.Star Cebu by phone. “The one who will be involved in starting trouble will be fired from the group.”

Lazaga is an inactive member of Akrho, Agcaoli said. His name has not been in the fraternity’s master list since 2007.

Agcaoili said he finds it impossible for Lazaga to be behind the incident, which hurt over 30 persons.

“He is a law student. He would taint his future by doing that,” he said in Cebuano.

“He’s innocent. I pity him. I hope the real culprit will be arrested.”

Agcaoili said the fraternity is not yet issuing an official statement, pending the result of their internal investigation.

“Our inquiry will focus on whether our members were involved or not,” Akrho national chairman Army Maj. Jose del Rosario said, in a separate interview. “We do not tolerate this kind of act.”

In an ANC show, Marikina Rep. Miro Quimbo, a University of the Philippines Alpha Sigma fraternity member, said violence takes place among fraternities because of “deep competition.”

Meanwhile, League of Filipino Students chairman Terry Ridon, a UP Phi Sigma fraternity member, said there are rules within their organization that prosecute members found guilty of physical violence.

Quimbo said there was a failure on the part of the policemen in controlling the crowd last Sunday.

“Those involved in violent acts ought to be penalized,” Ridon said.

A suspect in the September 26 Bar examinations explosion denied his involvement in the crime after he was brought to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) for questioning on Wednesday.

According to Vice-President Jejomar Binay and Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, the suspect, Anthony Leal Nepomuceno, maintained his innocence.

Nepomuceno, a call center agent, graduated from the Manuel L. Quezon University. He belongs to the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity.

The suspect is accused of being the one who lobbed the grenade during the traditional Salubong, wherein well-wishers, law students, and relatives greet Bar examinees after taking the test.

More than 40 people were hurt in the incident, including San Sebastian College law student Raissa Laurel who lost her legs.

No detention

De Lima said the suspect will not be detained yet because no formal charges have been lodged against him.

Still, she said Nepomuceno's lawyers assured them that the suspect would cooperate in the investigation.

"Pwede siyang lumabas anytime. I leave it to the NBI kung ano ang next step (Nepomuceno can go anytime now. I leave it to the NBI to take the next steps)," said De Lima.

She added that while Nepomuceno claimed he is innocent, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has strong evidence to implicate him as the grenade-thrower because of several eyewitness accounts.

"[The pieces of evidence] are strong enough because there are eyewitnesses and sworn statements," said De Lima.

She also said the suspect was brought to the NBI clandestinely so that he will not be "paraded before the media."

"He has a constitutional right of presumption of innocence," she added.

Same fraternity

Binay facilitated Nepomuceno's surrender because they belong to the same fraternity.

De Lima said Binay only learned that the suspect was an APO member on Tuesday.

"I called the Vice-President and he told me that he will try to ask his fraternity and see what he can do to help," De Lima said at a news briefing.

She claimed that she was surprised to learn from Binay this morning that their group would turn over Nepomuceno to authorities.

De Lima also said she will ask the NBI to determine whether members of the APO fraternity had coddled the suspect before he surrendered to Binay.

Fraternity war?

It remains unclear whether the grenade-throwing outside the De La Salle University campus in Manila after the Bar exams was caused by a fraternity war.

However, De Lima on Wednesday said a fraternity war is "one of the most possible motives, but with a little twist."

She added that the investigation will spare no sacred cows even if the suspect is part of a high-profile fraternity.

"Wala kaming sasantuhin. The investigation will go through the correct process. It doesn't matter to us who the members of this fraternity are," she said.

The justice chief also said the NBI is also monitoring two other possible suspects in the crime.

On October 23, De Lima said investigators already know who threw the grenade at the crowd who were part of the traditional "Salubong."

Police initially said they were looking into a fraternity war as the motive behind the blast.

P1.2 million reward

On October 3, the Fraternal Order of Utopia, an Ateneo School of Law fraternity, offered a P200,000 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of the perpetrators of the explosion.

Utopia president Tony Bernardo said the reward "will help speed up the investigation." He added the money was contributed by Utopia members.

On October 4, a group of businessmen also offered a P1-million reward for information about the suspects in the explosion.

NBI Director Magtanggol Gatdula told reporters, "that a group of businessmen is offering a P1-million reward." Gatdula, however, declined to identify the group of businessmen.

Artist's sketch

On October 19, the NBI released the artist's sketch of one of the suspects in the September 26 Bar exam blast.

The details included in the sketch described the suspect as:
# a 20 to 25-year-old male;
# of medium build;
# 5'6'' to 5'7" in height, and
# weighs between 60 to 65 kilograms.

The details also provided clues that the suspect wore "long pants, maong; T-shirt, dark polo and low cut sneakers" when the incident occurred. — VVP/RSJ, GMANews.TV
