Terima kasih Musa, tapi...

BEBERAPA hari lalu, Ketua Menteri, Musa Aman, telah umum bahawa warga tua atau warga emas sentiasa dibela oleh kerajaan. Bagi pihak warga emas Sabah, saya ucap terima kasih banyak-banyak Musa.

Jaminan beginilah yang kami mahu dengar dari Kerajaan. Tapi betulkah kerajaan di bawah Musa memelihara warga tua di Sabah ini? 

Apakah kemudahan baru yang telah diberikan oleh Musa kepada golongan seperti kami ini?

Genesis 1
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning.”
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

Where is the RM1 billion allocation for School Repairs?

Kota Kinabalu:  “Where is the RM1 billion allocation for school repairs promised by DPM Tan Sri Muhyiddin this February?  The more Sabahans and Sarawakians look at Budget 2015, the more anger and despair it generates due to the absolute neglect of the Borneo States as though they are not part of the Malaysian federation” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, querying on omission the verbal promise of the RM1 billion to rebuild 600 dilapidated schools in Sabah and Sarawak in Budget 2015.

Are Najib & Rosmah GOING TOO FAR in their sodomy vendetta against Anwar?

Written by Iskandar Dzulkarnain
Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy Case appeal is coming up for hearing on Oct28th. With the Federal Court dismissing Anwar Ibrahim's final application to disqualify Shafee Abdullah as deputy public prosecutor, it is highly likely that Anwar will not escape incarceration.
Earlier, a three-member Court of Appeal bench sentenced Anwar to five years' jail, but granted him a stay on the sentence pending his appeal to the Federal Court.

KALI ini saya mahu komen mengenai judi yang semakin menjadi-jadi di semua daerah di Sabah.

Build Sabah Pan Borneo Highway Without Malayan For Better Quality

Kota Kinabalu:    “The Sabah government should insist that the Sabah section of the Pan Borneo Highway be built without any Malayan companies as the main contractor to avoid skimming of the contract sum and ending with lower quality roads.   It should learn from the Sarawak road quality experience” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief in commenting on Datuk Ghafur Salleh’s disclosure that UEM-MMC is to be the main contractor in Sabah unlike the Sarawak government’s insistence that no Malayan Umno companies or cronies be involved in the Sarawak section.

Ulu Sugut a perilous example on how the NCR is desecrated by developmentalist agenda” - Atama Katama

62% of the population of indigenous peoples in Sabah East Malaysia are generally not involved or consulted in planning processes and lack the resources and capacity to defend their land rights which has resulted in the further marginalization of the indigenous peoples by ‘development’ of which corporations and the wealthy elite are the main beneficiaries.

As a nation State that relies heavily on the exploitation of its natural resources for the development of its economy there is a clear tension between the rights of the indigenous to their ancestral lands and the government’s desire to utilize the natural resources.


Once upon a time there was in a small tropical nation, a ruler named Bijan. He wasn't particularly bright as a ruler, but he had a lot of distinguished advisors from the IMF and the World Bank to give him advice how to develop his country. In Bijan's country there were many nice fruit trees lining the paths leading to the fields where the people worked and to the rivers where they caught fish and bathed.

Patrol Boat Incident Poses Question over Naval Readiness to Protect Sabah

KOTA KINABALU: “The “lost and found” incident of the naval patrol boat CB204 clearly uncovers the non-readiness and unpreparedness of the Malaysian navy to protect Sabah and Sarawak in the event of any security threat.   It is a blessing in disguise and should serve as a wake-up call to the federal government to re-assess its commitment to protect Sabah and Sarawak” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief in commenting on the patrol boat incident which was found after some 30 hours of loss of contact and with its 7-man crew already starving.

How Many Of 2 Million Poor Households Are in Sabah?

Kota Kinabalu: “After a rosy announcement of an average Malaysian household income of RM5,900 per month, the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) of the Prime Minister’s Department drops a bombshell that there are 2 million or 28.7% of households earning less than RM3,000 per month. The question that begs an answer is how many of these 2 million households are in Sabah and Sarawak" said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, commenting on the announcement by the Minister in the PM’s Department on Tuesday.

Will Federal Flood Aid Come This Time?

Kota Kinabalu: “Having suffered in silence during the last December and this January devastating floods, Sabahans particularly in Kota Kinabalu, Penampang, Papar and Tuaran, should open their eyes and see for themselves the treatment they will be getting or not getting for federal flood aid” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, commenting on whether there will be federal aid in the devastating floods that hit the 4 districts and closed 8 schools on Tuesday.

It is with deep regret that in the last floods, there were hardly any federal flood aid for the victims in Sabah. 

Build Tunnel Link to Tambunan and Interior

Kota Kinabalu: “It may be a bit late but the PM cum Finance Minister should make an effort to include in Budget 2015, a tunnel link to Tambunan and the Interior and the Sabah Chief Minister and JKR Sabah should make a concerted effort to plan and secure the necessary funds for the project” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief in commenting on latest landslide at Upper Moyog, Penampang, that disrupted and brought traffic to a standstill after heavy rains.

Anggota Parlimen Kota Belud, Abdul Rahman Dahlan, jelaslah bukan suara dari Sabah tapi suara UMNO tulen berpaksi politik UMNO Malaya. 

Apa saja Malaya suruh cakap, dia mungkin akan cakap walaupun tidak disukai oleh rakyat Sabah sendiri. Namun kita tahu Rahman ialah Rahman - dia cakap saja apa yang akan pastikan dia disayangi oleh political master nya!

Politik cari makan dan cari pangkat bukanlah sesuatu yang asing bagi kita dalam dunia politik.

Actually there is no Malay race, says veteran writer

By Joe Fernandez
The Tamils in the peninsula are more Orang Asal than others except the Orang Asli.

Tamil schools in the Federation cannot be questioned because the first civilisation in the peninsula was Kadaram in Kedah which was a trading bridge between India and China.

The Kadaram people, Hindus from India, were the first to settle down in the peninsula after the Orang Asli. Kedah comes from kedai (Tamil for shop). There were many shops in Kadaram.

There is no Malaysia in Borneo, says veteran writer Fernandez

By Joe Fernandez
If you are free to enter a partnership, you are also free to leave it. If you are not free to leave a partnership, then it's not a partnership. It's occupation and re-colonization.

The issue is that Malaysia has no legitimacy in Borneo. If someone steals your land, you have to get it back. Not live as a slave on your own land with the thief.
