Oleh Ezra Haganez
TONGOD : Seorang pemimpin Parti Reformasi Negeri (STAR) dari kawasan Kuamut, Kinabatangan di sini menyifatkan pengkelasan semula banyak kawasan Hutan Simpan Sabah baru-baru ini sebagai bukti ketidakjujuran kerajaan Barisan Nasional dalam memelihara kebajikan rakyat terutama sekali Orang Asal.

STAR dan SAPP terkejut besar oleh pujian melangit Pairin kepada Musa Aman

Oleh Ezra Haganez
KOTA KINABALU : Laporan dada akhbar-akhbar tempatan di Sabah hari ini mengenai pujian melangit "Huguan Siou" (pemimpin agung) Kadazandusun, Joseph Pairin Kitingan, terhadap kepimpinan Ketua Menteri Musa Aman, telah menimbulkan kesangsian ramai pemimpin Kadazandusun terutamanya mengenai apakah sesuai atau rasional tindakan Pairin itu.

Pairin forgets KDMs suffered much under Musa's tenure

By Peter Marajin
KOTA BELUD : The glowing tribute by PBS president, Joseph Pairin Kitingan, to current Chief Minister Musa Aman does not go down well with Sabahans at large, especially the Kadazandusun community who more often than not, marginalised by Musa's UMNO-led government. Either Pairin must have forgotten, or he is just too detached from the reality.

KL has Sabah under siege

By Awang Ahmad Sah Sahari
Awang Ahmad Sah
The Federal Government, speaking on behalf of all Malaysians, has been harping on the ill treatment by Israel against the people of Palestine for so long. Yes, the Israelists have cordoned off regions in Palestine, such Gaza, making if difficult to bring in food supplies. During the premiership of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, food and medicine had to be smuggled through Egypt.

But Malaysia is notorious for being hypocritical, making statements at the international level and not realizing that what it is complaining about abroad is happening in Malaysia itself. The former PM, Tun Mahathir was wellknown for bashing the Jews, criticizing racial and religious oppressions in other countries, but in his own country the same things were happening.

Villagers threaten to rise up against govt

Sabah villagers in Tempasuk fear they will be displaced
to make way for an agropolitan project.
By Luke Rintod of FMT
KOTA BELUD: Dusun villagers in Tempasuk near here threaten to rise up against the government to stop any attempts to evict them for a development project.

They remain apprehensive over what they see as a land-grab and their displacement for a purported agropolitan development project just a few months after a near showdown with the authorities.

Kampungs Bungaliu and Bubuk are the target areas for the project and recent visits by “official” groups complete with police escorts have stirred anxieties again.

‘Christian threat’ seminar in Johor sparks religious row

By Anisah Shukry
KUALA LUMPUR, March 28 – Religious teachers from national schools in Johor will attend an officially-sanctioned seminar this Saturday focussing on the “threat of Christianisation”, and this has sparked outrage among Christians.

Organised by the Johor Education Department and the Johor Mufti Department, the seminar with the theme “Pemantapan Aqidah, Bahaya Liberalisme dan Pluralism Serta Ancaman Kristianisasi Terhadap Umat Islam. Apa Peranan Guru?” (Strengthening the Faith, the Dangers of Liberalism and Pluralism and the Threat of Christianity towards Muslims. What is the Role of Teachers?) requires the attendance of two religious teachers from 55 national schools across Johor.

Daim: BN only safe in three states in GE13

Description: daim zainuddinFormer finance minister and long-time Umno treasurer Daim Zainuddin - who had predicted the fall of BN in Penang, Selangor and Kedah in the 2008 general election - has looked into his crystal ball again.

The view isn’t exactly rosy for the federal ruling coalition in the next polls, according to an exclusive interview with Daim published today by Chinese daily Nanyang Siang Pau.
Daim said he expects an easy victory for BN only in Johor, Malacca and Pahang.

The key to recapturing Kedah and Selangor from Pakatan Rakyat, he said, would be to find suitable leadership line-ups in those states.

It's High Time To Review The Petronas Oil Royalty Agreements!

By Dr Jeffrey G. Kitingan

In view of the shocking developments from inevitable results of the sudden oil price hike, I would like to raise several issues with regards to the situation in Petronas which I believe most people are NOT aware of.

This is especially pertinent in the face of several revelations, such as the fact that the oil wells in Sabah will dry up six years from now. The issue has also been raised that Petronas "could go bust in 2018", forcing us to ask:

Sabah still ‘colonised’

By Luke Rintod of FMT
TAMBUNAN: State chairman of the State Reform Party (STAR), Jeffrey Kitingan, said Sabah, though freed from the colonial British in 1963, is actually “practically” still under colonisation today.

He said this can be tested with a simple political arithmetic: “We are free if we are free from colonisation or outside power. You are an independent country if you are free to plan and decide your own fiscal policies.”

Likewise, he said a country cannot consider itself independent if its own people do not have the power to elect or choose their own leaders.

‘Sabah MPs must table motion to scrap cabotage’

The federal government's 'one policy fits all' system has
only brought hardship to Sabah, claims Jeffrey Kitingan.
KOTA KINABALU: Between the issuance of 40,000 free MyKads, the government’s refusal to hold an RCI on legalised illegals and the cabotage policy controversy, Sabah Umno and its partners in BN are between the devil and the deep blue sea, so to speak.

Will money be enough to buy off a BN victory in the 13th general election in face of simmering anger against the state and federal governments over these core issues?

That’s left to be seen, but for now it is imperative that Sabah MPs table a motion in parliament to scrap the cabotage policy which according to Dr Jeffrey Kitingan has ‘ruined’ the state economy and caused ‘unquantifiable damage’.

Kenapa setiap kali menjelang pilihanraya, mesti ada pendaftaran bergerak di Sabah ?

Oleh James Ait
TONGOD : Kenapa setiap kali menjelang pilihanraya, mesti ada pendaftaran bergerak di Sabah? Seolah-olah rakyat Malaysia akan beranak lebih kerap atau ada kanak-kanak Malaysia yang tiba-tiba cukup umur untuk mendapatkan Kad Pengenalan di negeri ini menjelang pilihanraya. Adalah lebih baik sekiranya ada pemantauan melalui hospital dan klinik mengenai nisbah kelahiran dan pembuatan kad pengenalan.

Indonesia Christians Suffer for Religious Freedom

By Ezra Haganez

Saving the Rainforest with Just One Click

Malua waterfall
KOTA KINABALU (MALAYSIA): For as little as RM15, you can help protect rainforest in Sabah which is critical for the long-term survival of orang-utans, pygmy elephants, sun bears and other threatened wildlife species.

This amount, equivalent to USD5, saves 50 square metres of forest, about the size of a large garage, or you can contribute RM300 (USD 100) to conserve 1000 square metres (the size of 275 king-sized beds). This all can be done within minutes using a new online tool developed by Malua BioBank, a Sabah-based project restoring and protecting critical wildlife habitat and forest ecosystems.

Anwar exposes how EC conducts 'massive fraud'

The de facto leader of PKR today exposed opposition claims of how the Election Commission (EC) was conducting “massive fraud” in manipulating the voters roll.

NONE“I shall prove it and give a specific example,” assured Anwar Ibrahim (right) at a press conference in parliament lobby.

He then furnished reporters with a printout of an EC voter search to show how a voter with her name and IC numbers already registered in Pulai Johor was  re-registered as a new voter in Pekan, Pahang.

“This is how they do it. If they had entered the same data, the computer will reject it. So they added a slash (/) after the IC numbers in the new registration,” he alleged, holding up the printout.

Japan aids Telupid village with water supply project

TELUPID: The Consular Office of Japan Kota Kinabalu is glad to be able to extend assistance for gravity water supply project to Kg. Tongodon, Telupid.

In his speech at the signing ceremony to hand over the RM137,000 aid here last Saturday, Minoru Kikuchi, Chief Consul from the Consular Office of Japan in Kota Kinabalu, said the aid was granted in response to the request of the Adventist Development and Relief Agency Sabah (ADRA Sabah) and the JKKK of Kg. Tongodon, Telupid. He explained that after studying the application and seeing the genuine need of the people of Kg. Tongodon, the Government of Japan then decided to extend the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project, or GGP.

God's Creations

On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks by. For this, I will give you a life span of 20 years."

The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only 10 years and I'll give you back the other 10?" So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a 20-year life span." The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for 20 years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back 10 like the dog did?" And God agreed.

‘Save Sabah, if you want Malaysia’

By Raymond Tombung
Is Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak 'naturally' happy with
Umno-Barisan Nasional in Sabah?
KOTA KINABALU: If Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is even remotely committed to ensuring Malaysia remains with the Barisan Nasional coalition, then he must immediately restore the rights and autonomy of Sabah.

According to political maverick Dr Jeffrey Kitingan to save Sabah is to save Malaysia.

He said it was pointless talking about the being ‘committed’ to the future if the Borneo state continued to be ignored and sidelined.

STAR: National Security and Sovereignty at Stake

“National security and sovereignty is at stake with the continued and irresponsible issuance of Mykads and citizenships to foreigners in Sabah” stated Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chairman, in reference to the report by Mr. Mansor Santiri, President of Persatuan Bajau Bumiputra  Semporna, pertaining to the concerns by the Semporna Bajaus on the issuance of MyKads to foreigners by the National Registration Department’s mobile registration unit in Semporna.

“I simply cannot understand why our Sabah leaders, who are in the position of power, just stand by doing nothing and continue to allow these backdoor granting of citizenships to foreigners to happen?” lamented Dr. Jeffrey.

Sabah Sarawak Bn Govts Should Scrap Cabotage: Star

“The Sabah and Sarawak State Governments should get the Federal Government to immediately scrap the Cabotage Policy” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, the STAR Sabah Chief in response to the calls by Sabah BN components for the federal government to suspend or review the cabotage policy.

It defies logic that the BN components can only voice their frustrations in the media on the cabotage policy.   If being part of the BN federal government and the BN parties in Sabah and Sarawak are powerless to secure the scrapping of the cabotage policy, there is no further reason for them to remain in the Barisan Nasional.

Bumburing Welcomed to Join STAR Sabah

“Datuk Wilfred Bumburing is welcomed to join STAR Sabah and its struggle to regain the lost State rights which will lead to a better future for Sabah” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, the STAR Sabah Chief, to rumours of Bumburing quitting UPKO over unhappiness with Umno/BN’s treatment of Sabah.

“There is no denying that Sabah BN components are completely powerless and their leaders should realize by now that Sabahans have been fooled and cheated for the last 48 years resulting in Sabah losing its autonomy and political power as well as “loss” of its oil revenue and other tax revenues”.

Save Sabah To Save Malaysia If Committed To Malaysia’s Future

“The Prime Minister should take immediate steps to restore the rights and autonomy of Sabah to save Sabah and to save Malaysia if he is genuinely and sincerely committed to the future of Malaysia” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, the STAR Sabah Chief in response to the report that the Prime Minister is committed to the future of Malaysia.

Sabahans are now more politically matured and are demanding that the legitimate rights and autonomy of Sabah that were promised by the founding fathers of Malaysia be restored.

Ladies & Gentlemen..
At 11am after Church yesterday; I and my Rakyat of Long Kavuk had serious discussions on the future of Long Kavuk and the Baram people. The main subject we hands on is “Our Life after The Baram Dam”.

Dr M : I made Robert Kuok a Tycoon ! What Rubbish !

By Ms Li Xiang Lan
I just took a cursory glance through what Mahathir said here, and you may quote that me a woman is offended like "no fury greater than woman being" conned by the outbursts of a man who was once Prime Minister of our Beloved Land, Malaysia. Is he still in possession of his right senses or is now already senile, talking through his "where the sun never shines" ?

SAPP will fight to get back Labuan

Penampang, March 9, 2012: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Seri Panglima Yong Teck Lee said his party would fight for the return of Labuan while the surrendered of huge maritime territories known as Block L and Block M rich with oil to Brunei would haunt the present UMNO-led Barisan Nasional (BN) Government.

He said Sabah lost Labuan to the Federal Government some 28 years ago while the Block L and Block M territories off Sabah waters measuring a combined 3 million acres were given to Brunei during the last days of Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (now Tun) tenure as Prime Minister.

History Of Chinese & Indians In Malaysia

As stated by Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK)
A confusion has erupted due to ignorance. It has been stated that the Indians came here as beggars and the Chinese as prostitutes. Actually, if you were to really study Malayan and Malaysian history over the last 500 years or so, you will find that this country's history is not just about beggars and prostitutes. It is about much more than that.

Malayan history has to be dissected into many periods. And each of these periods saw immigration involving almost all the races in Malaysia , save the Orang Asli (the Original People). In New Zealand , these Orang Asli would be the Maoris and in Australia the Aborigines. Therefore, anyone who is neither a Maori nor an Aborigine is a `pendatang' or immigrant

Of repercussions from asking God to leave our homes...!

ATT00001111.jpgThe following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year which prompted CBS presenter, Ben Stein, to present this piece which I would like to share with you. I think it applies just as much to many countries as it does to America ... 

My confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejewelled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees.

PKR is worse than Umno, alleges ex-PKR division chief

By Raymond Tombung
KOTA KINABALU: Former PKR Sepangar Chief, Felix Sitaun said he left the party for STAR because he saw STAR as the real hope for Sabah.

“I now fully believe that Sabah should be governed by local parties, not by parties from the Peninsular,” he said in statement here. “And I can see that if PKR rules Sabah, it will be even worse that the present Umno/BN state government.”

“STAR: Safeguarding Sabah’s Rights Not Sabah for Sabahans”

“STAR Sabah stands by its position that only local parties that genuinely fight for Sabah’s rights can safeguard Sabah’s rights and not outside parties or local parties or local leaders subservient to outsiders from the Peninsular. STAR is fighting for the Borneo Agenda and NOT for Sabah for Sabahans” replied Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chairman, in reference to the explanation by PKR Sepanggar acting chief, Timothy Thomas Lim.

“STAR: Govt Must Solve NCR Problems Not Talk”

“The State Government should immediately take remedial action to solve the NCR and other land problems and not waste precious time to discuss whether it recognizes native customary rights (NCR) after 1930 as opined by the State Attorney General that NCR were extinguished by the Land Ordinance, 1930” stated Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chairman, in response to the statement by the Chief Minister that the Cabinet had discussed NCR at length and will be seeking the views of BN component parties and other experts

‘Sabah, Sarawak’s ‘right’ to have more parliament seats’

By Luke Rintod of FMT
Sabah's land area may be equivalent to nine states in
the peninsula, but its representation in Parliament
does not reflect this.
KOTA KINABALU: Going by the spirit of the 1963 Malaysia Agreement, Sabah and Sarawak should have a minimum 78 seats in the current 222-seat Dewan Rakyat. But in reality this has never happened. Sabah and Sarawak currently have a collective 56 seats in Parliament.

Demanding for a review in the number of seats, State Reform Party (STAR) Sabah chapter chairman Jeffrey Kitingan said both states must collectively have at least 35 % of seats in parliament.

Natives gather in Kota Kinabalu March 9 to protest government over land-grabs and NCR

Activist convinced Dr Jeffrey sincere in his struggle

By Ezra Haganez
Dr. Jeffrey
PENAMPANG : A social and consumerism activist here said the recent action taken by some pioneers of Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) from Kepayan to finally leave the party and joined an opposition State Reform Party (STAR) is laudable.

Donny Yapp, 48, said it is a pleasant shock to many yet a historic brave move that signaled the Chinese warming up to Dr Jeffrey's untiring struggle to fight for Sabah state rights and autonomy.

STAR supports extra seats for Sabah, Sarawak

“STAR Sabah supports additional state and parliamentary seats for Sabah and Sarawak and the need to observe the composition ratio of parliamentary seats agreed at the formation of Malaysia as well as ensure a fairer and more equitable distribution of funds for each constituency and the access to facilities and amenities by the people in both States” stated Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, Chairman of STAR Sabah in response to the opinion and suggestion of lawyer, Yunuf Maringking, on additional seats for Sabah.

Barisan National” : Heaven-Sent or Hell-Sent?

By Burak Sem
I am just returning from Ulu Baram, campaigning against the Baram dam.It is the ultimate duty for every Baramites who with the right minds to stand, fight tooth and nail to save the Baram from that intentional, calculative and man-made disaster.

Referring to the Tua Kampung of Long Kavuk had mentioned in his email, “Despite of being the minority ethnic group call the “Orang Ulu”, we are definitely going off an economic and cultural cliff as the result our weak leadership through our Ketua Mesarakat. This question is no longer of, "IF”. It is merely a matter of, "When”? Our day of reckoning will “When” we’ll be completely fall-flatten on the ground" should we continue to choose wrong leader(s) to lead us during this turbulent time.

STAR Ups Unity and Takes Penampang and Sepanggar By Storm

“STAR Sabah has forged ahead in adopting the “UNITY IS DUTY” call of the United Borneo Front (UBF) and fostered greater unity and support in seeking the rights and autonomy of Sabah” announced Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, Chairman of STAR Sabah, in welcoming John Ho, a pioneer of PBS and branch chairman of Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Taman Oriental Park, Kapayan, at the launching of the KOKAKOBA fellowship last Sunday, 4th March, in Kapayan, Penampang.

Since 1963 Sabah has lost its autonomy and downgraded from a nation within a nation to one of 13 states in Malaysia and to the extent of being cheated and treated as a colony with a loss of political power with leaders being elected with the help of outsiders.

Which way will SAPP swing?

By Luke Rintod of FMT
The Sabah Progressive Party must decide soon on whether
it wants to ally with STAR or Pakatan Rakyat.
KOTA KINABALU: When Sabah STAR (State Reform Party) chairman Jeffrey Kitingan announced the formation of his brainchild United Borneo Alliance (UBA) on Jan 31, the main local opposition in the state, Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP), quickly denied its involvement, claiming nothing concrete had taken place. It was true.

At the time UBA was just Jeffrey’s initiative and SAPP attended the UBA’s so-called inaugural meeting between SAPP, STAR and (pro tem) Usno out of courtesy to Jeffrey.

PKR Sepanggar reply to Felix Sitaun statement

By Thimothy Thomas Lim
We refer to Mr. Felix Sitaun’s announcement to quit PKR to join STAR reported on 5th March 2012.

PKR Sepanggar wishes to set the record straight here.

It is true that Felix Sitaun was elected as the divisional head of PKR Sepanggar in September 2010. However, he had maintained, at all times, that he was a proxy to Daniel John Jambun whose membership was suspended by PKR due to his affiliations with Party Cinta Sabah. Using the excuse that he is a proxy, Felix has been inactive and ineffective. By early 2011, he asked to be on ‘sick leave’ and thereby relinquished all his positions in the party.

KOKAKOBA Unity Re-activated

“The activities and unity of KOKAKOBA is being re-activated from today” announced Phillip Among, at the launching of the KOKAKOBA fellowship last Sunday, 4th March, in Kapayan, Penampang.

KOKAKOBA was started by the elders and leaders of the four (4) communities in Kapayan, namely, Kg. Kobusak, Kg. Kapayan, Kg. Koidupan and Kg. Bahang, to foster unity and to organize activities particularly the Kaamatan Festival, for the benefit of the community.

“PBS has lost its Direction and PBS leaders have forgotten the people”

By John Ho, PBS pioneer 1985
Mr. John Ho
Ex-Branch Chairman
Parti Bersatu Sabah
“Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) has forgotten its struggle for Sabah and its leaders have forgotten the people. For the future of Sabah, we have decided to leave PBS and join STAR Sabah to answer the calls for unity by Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan and support the struggles of STAR Sabah and fight for the rights and autonomy of Sabah” announced John Ho, a pioneer of PBS, at the launching of the KOKAKOBA fellowship last Sunday, 4th March, in Kapayan, Penampang.

“Tan Sri Pairin and others were in my house on February 21, 1985 and we initiated PBS in Kapayan before PBS was officially registered. We went on to arrange for the first announcement of PBS’ registration on 06 March 1985 at a friend’s house in Tg. Aru in the presence of about 200 initial core supporters after his arrival from Kuala Lumpur that afternoon.”

PKR Head in Sepanggar quits to join STAR

By Felix Sitaun, PKR Head, Sepanggar
KOTA KINABALU : I was elected Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Divisional Head for the Party’s Sepanggar Division in 2010.

I have lost confidence in the national and state leadership of PKR and I therefore quit from being a member of this party, effective from today.

I, together with my 18 colleagues in Sepanggar division, youth and woman wings, arrived at this decision to quit PKR as we have found out that PKR is not sincere in listening to the aspirations of Sabahans. We do not think PKR has the heart to struggle for Sabah’s rights and its inherent autonomy privilege as being sought by Sabahans to be retained or restored.

Fidel Castro calls on Japanese to tell nuclear experience to world

HAVANA (Kyodo) -- Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro took part in a gathering for Japanese atomic-bomb survivors organized by the Cuban government and a Japanese NGO on Thursday in Havana and called on them to convey to the world their experiences regarding the recent nuclear crisis in Japan and the 1945 U.S. bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The 85-year-old attended the gathering for more than three hours and made the call in a speech to about 800 Japanese in the audience. It was one of the few public appearances he has made following his retirement from all public positions last April.

Mositun’s criticisms are actually compliments on Jeffrey

Believe it or not, there are times in your political life when you think you are criticizing someone but in reality you are actually complimenting him or her. This is what Datuk Johnny Mositun had done when he criticized Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan a few days ago. He said that Dr. Jeffrey “is deliberately playing on the people’s sensitivities and parochial sentiments.”

By saying these, Mositun actually admit that Dr. Jeffrey is a doing the right things in politics – appealing to the sentiments and sensitivities of the people. What are the people’s sentiments and sensitivities? Well, for Mositun’s information, these are just a few of them: (1) The people want their leaders to defend their rights, (2) The want what were promised to Sabah in 1963, (3) They want the power to decide on their own fate without having to be subjected to the wills and fancies of the leaders from Malaya, (4) They want their leaders to be courageous, speaking and demanding for them, and not be subservient to a Malayan party like Umno, (5) They want their leaders to have guts and not cowards and pak turuts, traitors, and stooges just for the sake of their salaries, allowances, perks and kickbacks.
