More discrimination and lies about Sabah Teachers

Now they say they want to recruit Sabahan teachers but they had
forcefully transfer Sabahan to West Malaysia suffering from
discrimination and underutilisation there.

While Sabah suffers from lack of teachers and high cost of paying West
Malaysian teachers that are given allowances that double their
salaries. Sabahan who are transfered to West Malaysia suffer from a
reduction of income.

No wonder the previous budget allocation for Sabah is 16% of national
budget. Most probably due to the high cost of paying West Malaysian
teachers in Sabah, because many schools are still without any table
and chairs as exemplified by one Kalabakan school. By now, they should
have chairs but we never know how many schools still suffer from the
same fate.

As for responses from Sabahans in joining the teaching profession,
many professionals already applied and got these jobs. Not only
engineers, but also surveyors.

Rewards for Sabah Sarawak, teachers

Email to friend Email to Friend Print article Print Article


SEREMBAN: Teachers willing to be transferred to rural areas,
especially in Sabah and Sarawak, will soon enjoy monetary rewards,
said Deputy Education Minister Datuk Razali Ismail.
"The ministry is aware of the sacrifices these teachers are making and
has come up with a special allowance, ranging from RM500 to RM1,500
for them."

He said the ministry also wanted Sabah and Sawarak residents to join
the profession.

The ministry had to turn to teachers from peninsular Malaysia to
volunteer to teach in rural areas, Razali added.

"We need more Sabah and Sarawak people to teach in their states as
they would be more suited and knowledgeable of local customs and
traditions," he said after opening the Teachers Resource Centre (PKG)
Convention 2008 at Sekolah Menengah Kebang-saan King George here.
He aslo said the ministry had organised walk-in interviews to attract
non-Malays to become teachers to boost racial integration in national
schools.

Price of Dictatorship: Zimbabwe

How would anyone tolerate Mugabe?

And yet he continues to win elections.

It reminds of Sabah that is already the poorest and yet stll vote the
government that makes it this poor.

Even the amount of Telecom Subisidies is already the lowest with only
3 sites, while hundreds of sites in the already rich Malaya, and yet
nobody seems to be making a noise at all.

O-level pass rates in Zimbabwe, once the envy of Africa, have fallen
from 72 per cent in the mid-1990s to 11 per cent. Now the government
has been forced to cancel the academic year

Jan Raath in Harare

The class of 2008 will not receive an education. Since the school year
began in January, Zimbabwe's 4.5 million pupils have had a total of 23
days uninterrupted in the classroom, teaching unions say - a sorry
state for a country that once had the highest standard of education in
Africa.

President Mugabe became an African hero of rare distinction when he
carried out a big expansion of the education system in the early years
of his rule. As with most of the country's infrastructure, that system
is now in the process of total collapse.

In the mid-1990s there was a national O-level pass rate of 72 per
cent. Last year it crashed to 11 per cent. Many schools recorded zero
passes.

To avoid the humiliation of total failure in 2008 the Government has
cancelled the academic year. "It would be criminal if the Government
allows examinations to go ahead," Raymond Majongwe, the secretary-
general of the Progressive Teachers' Union of Zimbabwe, said.

In January teachers went on a prolonged strike over their salaries. In
April, Mr Mugabe's Zanu (PF) party accused them of supporting the
Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) during the March elections and
blamed them for the President's first-round defeat.

Six teachers were murdered and thousands assaulted by Zanu (PF)
militia in the violence that marred the second-round presidential
election on June 27.

Schools were looted and turned into torture centres. Teachers
disappeared. Many are still unable to return for fear of being
disciplined.

Now the coup de grace to the education system is being delivered by
hyperinflation. Teachers had their salaries doubled last week to the
equivalent of £5.70 a month — barely enough for bus fares and bread
for four days.

The handful of private and state schools where parents can pay large
supplements to teachers' salaries are the only ones operating. In most
schools where teachers do turn up pupil attendance is dwindling.

"We come to school and we entertain the kids until 10am, then we send
them home," Amos Musoni, from Sengwe primary school in the south of
the country, said. "There were ten teachers last week, out of 32. They
are there because they have no money to leave. We don't even have
chalk, or red pens, never mind books."

At one of Harare's government boys' high schools, benches are being
sawn up to provide wood for O-level woodwork examinations - not that
anyone knows when they will happen.

"O and A-level pupils go home next week to study for their finals,"
the headmaster said. "But there is no timetable. Nor do we have their
June mid-year results."

Urban schools have been overwhelmed by water and power cuts. One
primary school in Mabvuku township, Harare, has not had water for five
years. A Harare girls' school has been seeking an axe to chop down
trees for firewood to cook food.

Providing school food at a time of comprehensive agricultural failure
is a struggle. Mr Majongwe said hundreds of rural schools had sent
their boarders home because they could no longer feed them.

Mr Musoni, from Sengwe, is pathetically thin. "There is no food," he
said. "People are starving." Students at Harare Polytechnic rioted
last week after they were served sadza, the stiff maize porridge that
is the national staple, without salt or cabbage.

The country's four leading universities have failed to open since the
start of their first term in mid-August. At the University of
Zimbabwe, the country's leading tertiary institute, a notice with last
Friday's date on a faculty building tells students that lectures will
begin "on a date to be advised".

Levy Nyagura, the Vice-Chancellor, said that the university had "no
water, no electricity and no funds".

Ellen Murogodo, a would-be first-year social work student, keeps
returning to the campus to register only to be told to try again a
week later. To pay for her journey she sets up a stand outside the
university's Great Hall where she sells popcorn and cigarettes.

"Mugabe was a teacher himself [in the 1950s]," Mr Majongwe said. "He
knows the potential of teachers as agents for change. That is why he
has deliberately destroyed education."

New talks on a power-sharing government in Zimbabwe failed yesterday
to end a stalemate over Cabinet posts, the opposition MDC said.

There is no clean COAL POWER FOR SABAH

It is clear from the Palin-Bidden debate that clean-coal is still far
away in the future with China building lots of dirty coal power plants.

The coal power plant in Sabah will be similarly dirty, destroying the
enviroment in Sabah even more. It is already bad, but it will make it
even worse.

The worst part is that, we already have excess power capacity in Bakun,
that had already destroyed thousands of acres of environment, but it is
never to be transmitted to Sabah and the nearby areas.

Instead, another 8 billion RM were to be invested, above the 4 billion
RM used to build it, in order to transmit power to Malaya thousands of
km under the sea. And Malaya already have excess electricity generating
capacity.

What is the rationale of all this?

Economically it will be devastating to Sabah that relies on tourism for
its only economic activity. Industry will never be economical without
any support on the infrastructures, such as roads.

Transport companies are going bankrupt because of the limitations of
35000 kgs loading capacities instead of the 55,000 for Malaya.

Material costs are already high because everything had to be imported
via Malaya, causing more than 20% overheads in cost of materials and
transportations of finished goods.

Sabah will remain the poorest in Malaysia and the whole world.

China is building one to three new coal-fired plants burning dirty coal
per week. It's polluting not only the atmosphere but the West Coast of
the United States. We should export the technology by investing in clean
coal technology.

DAILY EXPRESS NEWS Zakaria: Don't blame Govt for power woes if

Kota Kinabalu: The public, especially those living in the State's east
coast, should not blame the Government if the proposed coal-fired power
plant in Sandakan failed to materialise, thus creating a severe power
shortage in the region.

Gum-Gum Assemblyman Datuk Zakaria Edris said the public as well as
non-governmental organisations (NGOs) who opposed the setting up of the
plant should realise the importance of the facility not only for
Sandakan but the entire east coast.

"Areas in the east coast such as Sandakan, Lahad Datu and Tawau are
desperate for electricity due to the growth in population as well as
economic activities. Should the power shortage persist, economic growth
in these areas will be affected," he said when met during the Chief
Minister's Hari Raya Open House here on Wednesday.

Zakaria said he and 43 other representatives of the Government as well
as NGOs had visited several coal-powered power plants in Kuching, Johor
Baru, Perak and Selangor.

"From the visit we found out that the plant in Johor Baru, which has a
capacity of 2,000 megawatts, did not affect the environment. Even
Singapore, which is so near and conscious about the environment, made no
objections regarding the plant," he said.

"So what is wrong with having a coal-fired power plant in Sandakan which
has a capacity of only 300 megawatts, knowing that Sabah will face
severe power shortage by 2010," he added.

Zakaria also said the so-called petition signed by some 50,000 people
who were against the project did not reflect the views of the people as
a whole.

He said those collecting the signatures were not giving out the correct
information by claiming, among others, that the plant would cause cancer.

"If this is true, we want evidence. In Johor, Selangor, Kuching and
Perak (where the plants already exist), there has been no reports about
any deaths related to the plant," he said, adding that there were
certain parties who were misleading the public.

"I appeal to the people to see the positives for the benefit of all.
Sandakan is poised for rapid growth and is aiming to be an education hub
and this in turn needs power."

He also said that should the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for
the plant pass, it would be set up somewhere in Gum-Gum or Sekong.

More obvious Malaysian discriminatory practises against Sabah

This is a blatant discrimination due to the lack of money given to
Sabah. Malaya is more interested in stealing money from Sabah but not in
spending a single cent at all.

The reasons why the road in Sabah is so bad is because they are built to
much lower standards because of the lack of budget. Why not, when Sabah
is only given 8% of the national budget, even now, despite promises to
increase them, while Sabah consists of 13% of population and 23% of area.

Raymond Tan, the ass licker is one of the reasons, but he is favoured by
Malaya just for this reason. He is not interested in fighting for the
progress of Sabah, only for his own stomach.

He is not alone of course.

Still there is no program to address the status of Sabah as the poorest
in Malaysia and among the poorest in the whole world.

The poor are still not receiving the aid that they need, while elected
officials like Raymond Tan is getting richer and richer.

DAILY EXPRESS NEWS Double standards: Lorrymen

Kota Kinabalu: The Federation of Sabah Lorry Transportation Associations
is calling on Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman to help resolve the
BDM (gross vehicle weight) mismatch between lorries operating in Sabah
and Peninsular Malaysia.

Its President, Steven Chua Pui Ming, said this is important because the
problem, which has been lingering since five years ago, is slowly
killing off one by one those involved in the business.

He said about 20 per cent of their members are already out of the
business as they can no longer withstand the impact, while another 30 to
40 per cent may soon meet a similar fate.

Chua said they had asked Deputy Chief Minister-cum-Infrastructure
Minister Datuk Raymond Tan to assist them but it appeared like "he (Tan)
is hopeless in this matter."

"We have asked Raymond to pursue or do something about this but nothing
until now. He (Tan) even closed his door on our West Coast Lorry
Transportation Association which had thrice tried to approach him but to
no avail.

"So we are now placing our hope on the Chief Minister to help us," he
told a press conference Wednesday.

It was held by the federation to voice their dissatisfaction on the
dialogue they had with representatives from the Federal and State Public
Works Department (PWD), Road Transport Department (RTD) Sabah, Transport
Ministry and the police at the State RTD Headquarters in Bundusan near
here earlier in the day.

The problem arose after the government gazetted the Weight Restriction
Order in 2003 and downgraded the BDM of lorries (double axle trailer) in
Sabah and Sarawak to 34,000kg from 36,000kg, while the BDM of lorries in
the penin-sular was upgraded to 40,000kg for no apparent reason.

The Federation had objected to the differential in BDM and appealed to
the Prime Minister, Transport Minister and various government
departments to make it similar with the one for the peninsula.

Calling it a double standard, Chua reasoned that this is because
everything from the amount of road tax up to the penalty and summons
amounts are the same in East Malaysia and the peninsula.

Citing an example he said their members are sometimes taken action
against by the enforcement authority for carrying loads exceeding the
permissible BDM which would not be the case if in the peninsula.

"Why can't we have the same BDM when we are living in one nation and
everything else is the sameÉwe heard the BDM in the peninsula, which is
now already upgraded again to 44,000kg, would be upgraded again by
another 20 per cent soon, while we still have the same old problem," he
said.

Chua said their members were also not happy that there is a
Sarawak-based transportation com-pany which operates a fleet of lorries
registered in Sabah which had been given "special privilege" by the
government to carry loads beyond the BDM fixed for the State, just
because it involves a government project.

"Why this double standard? This company's lorries are travelling the
same roads as we are but its lorries are allowed to carry up to 55,000kg
because it is a 'special case' and this special case happens to be a
government project.

"Some of us also involved in government projects are not given such
special treatment," said Chua.

Wednesday's dialogue followed a directive from Transport Minister Datuk
Ong Tee Keat in response to the request made by the Federation during
his visit here recently.

Chua, however, said the dialogue was a failure, as there was no positive
result. He said PWD officials responded to the upgrade of BDM by saying
they have to form a committee, in which they asked the federation
members to participate, to do a study on the existing bridges throughout
Sabah to decide whether these bridges require strengthening.

"We do not concur with the PWD as the issue of BDM has been outstanding
since 2003. It has been five years already and all the others such as
the Transport Ministry and other relevant authorities have already
agreed that the upgrading of BDM in Sabah is necessary."

Chua said it is also important to solve the problem fast with the
imminent BIMP-EAGA free growth area where it would become a problem or a
great shame in terms of transportation of goods because Indonesia,
Brunei and Philippines have higher BDMs for lorries.

"Just think what will happen to those lorries carrying goods or products
way above the permissible BDM in Sabah and Sarawak when they come into
the StateÉyou cannot stop them because it would be a free trade area,
while we in Sabah can only bring out to these countries good loads
according to the same low BDM," he said.

Sabah and Sarawak are probably the only places having the lowest BDM in
the world, he said, questioning if the delay or refusal to upgrade the
present BDM show the Federal and State roads in both states are of not
up-to-mark in terms of quality.

Sabah West Coast Lorry Transport Association Chairman, Steven Foo, and
other committee members were also present.

Story of a successful resistance, th ANC

The ANC has managed to finally win against South Africa Apartheid white
regime and later on manage to run the nation prosperous and peacefully
for both whites and blacks. It had succeeded brilliantly compared to
Rhodesia, now called Zimbabwe.

It is interesting the ANC even ordered young men to study overseas in
order to prepare them for leadership roles for the nation, instead of
just labourers as the case for Malaysia.

The lack of nepotism and cronyism is vital in order to ensure the
success of an organisation but this sense is only prevalent in times of
war. This is true in the case of Sabah's leader Tun Mustapha, a former
resistance fighter against the Japanese. He scoured hard for people who
can help him in his political battles.

Unfortunately, when he got the power as the Chief Minister of Sabah, he
lost touch with the people. Probably he was surrounded by opportunists,
instead of true fighters as in the later days of Sabah as a colony of
the United Kingdom. The same thing could happen to Mahathir.

In times of peace, people have become so corrupted and more concerned
with quick returns because they don't feel any impending disaster.
Despite figures which compare Sabah as the poorest in Malaysia and among
the poorest in the whole World, Sabahans are still not fighting hard.

Probably only Yong Tech Lee is the fighter for Sabah. The other SAPP
leaders are just listening to him. Most are just like us, the desk
fighters. The fate of Sabah, is just like any other nations that had
been exploited bare with only feeble resistance. When even historical
events are ignored and falsified, the resources and rights of Sabahans
in Sabah will be plundered at will with the help of these opportunistic
Sabahans.

Nigerian resistance fighters is a classic example of local fighters
trying to retain their resources for their own use. They are
disorganised but brave. I don't think they are as organised as ANC or
the Rwanda Tutsi, otherwise they would have made an impact much earlier.
They are reminiscent of the Tamil Tigers, MILF and AlQaedah i.e. more
like terrorists. Even if they were successful, they will lead to chaos
and hardships for the people because they will most likely mismanage
their nation.

Let us hope that Sabah will not fall into such a chaotic state although
as things go, it is just inevitable. Peace will not happen if there is
blatant discrimination and exploitation against Sabahans as is still
happening in Sabah. Just because seemingly a large percentage of
Sabahans are satisfied with their peace and livelihood, the same
percentage satisfied citizens also exist in all these exploited and
warring states.

Early life: Mbeki was born in June 1942 in an agricultural village in
southeastern South Africa. At 14, he joined the African National
Congress Youth League; at 19, he was ordered by the ANC to leave the
country for education to prepare for a leadership role.

Higher education: He earned a master's degree in economics at the
University of Sussex in Britain and underwent military training in the
Soviet Union, a key backer of the ANC's armed campaign against apartheid.

Presidency: Mbeki was elected in 1999 to succeed anti-apartheid icon
Nelson Mandela as South Africa's second black president. Mbeki emerged
as a leader who was always willing to stand his ground despite criticism
of his policies. South Africa's economy has grown steadily under Mbeki's
rule, but his opponents say he has favored business at the cost of the poor.

Mbeki was reelected in 2004 to a second term. But in late 2007, he lost
an ANC leadership contest to rival Jacob Zuma, who is likely to become
South Africa's next president.

Key diplomatic accomplishment: Long accused of taking too soft an
approach to Zimbabwe's crisis, Mbeki brokered a power-sharing deal this
month between veteran Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and opposition
leaders, including Morgan Tsvangirai.

Brunei Chinese and Natives are better off than Malaysians

We should learn from Brunei. Despite massive losses from Tengku Jefry's
extravaganzas, the citizens of Brunei are much better off than Malaysia.

You can argue that Brunei has a small population but its population was
almost the same as those in the states of Sabah, Sarawak and Trengganu.

In 1963, the population of Brunei was 220,000, Sabah was 450,000.

Now just look at the figures: Brunei 340,000 while Sabah 3.3 million in
2007.

The Brunei chinese may not become citizens despite staying there for
generations, which is also true in UK, but their income is much higher
than their chinese counterparts in Sabah. For the natives, it is even worse.

The sudden increase in population in Sabah is due to the government
policies. IT is not only Filipinoes but also chinese in the 1960s,
documented by a book, and West Malaysians, also chinese especially after
2005.

There is no excuse why Sabah can be among the poorest while Brunei.
Corruption? Brunei also suffer corruption but it didn't destroy the
standard of living of the ordianary citizens.

There is one major difference. The extra treatment of the immigrant
chinese who even dare to call people who call them immigrants as
racists. Which means that they treat all the other natives as
immigrants, but not themselves.

These immigrants chinese are unmistakably the richer group and yet start
complaining of being discriminated, which clearly demonstrates that they
want to discriminate against all other natives because they believe that
only chinese are loyal to Malaysia, hard working and intelligent. All
others are just rubbish and don't deserve any help whatsover, because
whatever help is just a waste.

BN, relying so much on the chinese has given way so much that the
poorest people are still Malays and natives while the chinese grow from
strength to strength. The lose is the whole nation. As a result of
appeasing these chinese, the GINI has gone so high, corruption has gone
through the roof and salaries keep on tumbling. Worse, environments had
been destroyed. The best example is Batu Sapi, from the most beautiful
to the ugliest and dirtiest, in the whole world, all due to chinese
businessmen.

Of course there are some chinese who had tried to protect the
environment, but their number is too small. Just as a few jews also
tried to protect Arabs, but the general conclusion is very clear.
Chinese who had been allowed freedom to act had destroyed the nations
that they inhabit, Malaysia and Indonesia despite being oil rich.
Whereas in nations that don't give them a chance, like Brunei and all
the Arab nations, had allowed the overall wealth of their citizens to
grow, despite these chinese remaining as non-citizenships.

Anwar is the real defender of Malaysia and Sabah not Sabahans

When PR proposed that Sep 16th be public holidays in memory of Malaysia
Day,it clearly shows that Anwar is the real defender of Malaysia.

PBS never bothered with Malaysia day as shown by its current lack of
interest in Malaysia day. Even when PBS was the state government it was
more interested in discriminating against Muslims that led to the death
of my brother, than defending Malaysia, let alone Sabah. PBS has shown
its true character when it is completely silent on the discriminatory
allocation of budget to Sabah, given only 8% for a population of 13%,
which still stands even now. Increase 1 billion but so are the other
states, making the percentage to Sabah still 8%. And the silence on the
3% Petroleum royalty to Sabah.

It is UPKO who are more vocal, demanding the scrapping of the gas
pipeline to Bintulu in favour of a gas processing plant in Sabah leading
to more jobs in Sabah itself. Now there are lots of vacancies for
engineers in Sabah under Sabah Foundation.

The title says all Sabahans, which include myself, a so called
self-appointed defender of Sabah, but failed to realise that Sabah is
the poorest in Malaysia and among the poorest in the whole World for so
long. It was Anwar, who pointed it out, and even then, it took me a long
time to believe what he had pointed out as facts, verified by United
Nations a long long time ago. I am really ashamed of myself.

I salute Anwar. I certainly wish that he be the Prime Mininster of
Malaysia, even if he were engaging in anal-intercourse or even accepted
money for services rendered. It is a small price to pay for the defense
of the entire nation. The speaker, the ass-licker from Sabah, has given
Anwar a great favour by proving that the Parliament has no right to
decide on the confidence of the Parliament on the Prime Minister. It is
now all up to the Agong, from Trengganu, that suffer the same fate as
Sabah and Sarawak. Oil-rich states but straddled with poverty.

The Agong cannot even accept written pledges that BN had tried to do
because the court had disallowed such practises, as decided by the
courts themselves based on cases in Sabah. It is all up to the Agong. He
does not even need to prove that Anwar has the majority at the current
moment. And once the Agong has appointed the next PM, the current PM
SHALL resign, which means, already resigned. Anwar, as the true defender
of the nation of Malaysia, the Agong cannot dispute this, and therefore
the only true Prime Minister of Malaysia.

SHALL in the constitution is a substitute for "will", which means that
it is stronger than even "must".

There is a clear rule of justice. The victim is never at fault.
The Sabahan leaders may be pathetically ignorant but they are not
thieves of SAbah's resources. West Malaysians are, especially the
Federal Government.

No matter how good Sabah's leaders are, how much can they do when they
are only given 8% for a population of 13% and area of 23%?

After constant prodding, Sabah was given an additional 1billion, but so
are many other states, making Sabah's portion still at 8%. Initally the
National budget was 200 billion but was increased to 230 billion in the
mid-term.

Can you blame Sabahan leaders for not asking what is actually their
rights???

THE MONEY ARE HELD BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Not by Sabahan leaders.
The Federal officers are almost all WEST MALAYSIANS.

The extra population increase is also mostly WEST MALAYSIANS.

And yet, they never defended the increase in Sabah state budget claiming
that SAbahan leaders are incompetent!

What more do these West Malaysians want??

All FEDERAL POSTS ARE ALREADY TAKEN by them, right down to office boys,
and yet they dare to claim that Sabahan leaders are incompetent. Please
note that the implementation is done by Federal Officers, that are most
likely to be non-Sabahans.

I think West Malaysians are only satisfied if ALL SABAHAN LEADERS are to
be replaced by WEST MALAYSIANs, or at least the CHIEF MINISTER.

What makes it worse is that, MOST POLITICIANS are appointed by West
Malaysians, not by SAbahans, just like the Federal Government officers.
They were appointed not based on their INTELLIGENCE and INTEGRITY but by
being so pathetic and ingorant about Sabahan needs, like Lajim, who is
so happy that SAbah got an additional 1 billion, which is pitifully too
little, too small and too late.

I have just been told by a West Malaysian technician who loves to stay
in Sabah having married a Sabahan, that the first class room at Sandakan
Government Hospital is given an aircon that is too noisy. He complained
directly to the director, and noted that the director's room has good
air con, but doctors on standby had to sleep on paper boxes.

Do you think the director is so stupid as not to request for these first
class rooms to be renovated??? And standby doctors provided with decent
rooms like any normal hospital in West Malaysian, and even UNDER SABAH
ADMINSTERED HOSPITALS!!! Their request were just rejected because there
is simply not enough budget. Given only 8%, with a disproportionately
high allocation for education(16% of the national total), the amount
left for hospital must be pititul, i.e. only 4% for a population of 13%.

I had the pleasure to visit these first class hospitals during Sabah's
administration and a few years after SAbah was colonised by Malaya. Most
government services were staffed by Sabahans especially the hospitals
because it was still under Sabah state government. At that time, the
first class rooms were very impressive. Now, just a few years after it
was handed over to the Federal Government, even Kota kInabalu does not
have any First Class rooms. My auty has just got an operation. Don't
tell me that illegals are staying in these First Class rooms.

They don't even cater for the illegal West Malaysians,let alone Sabahans.

Sikarno is the real Hero Of Sabah

http://www.gimonca.com/sejarah/sejarah09.shtml

If you read the history above, instead of the Malaysian version, it
should be clear that the aims of Indonesia was to defeat the whole of
Malaysia in order to prevent the formation of Malaysia.

On the instigation of Azahari, Sukarno was against the joining of Sabah
and Sarawak to Malaya. Azahari proposed the union of Sabah, Sarawak and
Brunei.

As a SAbahan, I don't care if we join with Brunei, Malaya or Indonesia
as long as we are looked after. One thing is certain though, that
Malaysia is a disaster for Sabah by making Sabah the poorest in Malaysia
and in the world, depsite its resources.

All leaders that had led to this situation cannot be called heroes of
Sabah. However these people had paid their fate by being dead in an
aeroplane that was denied immediate landing and finally exploded in
mid-air i.e. Fuad Stephens, and another, Tun Mustapha, sent to oblivion
by making his party illegal and therefore forced to accept UMNO that
finally abandoned him.

If Sabah had been forced to join Indonesia, like West Irian, I don't see
any fate much worse than what Sabah is in at the moment with Malaysia.
Despite all figures pointing out to the discriminatory budget, the same
budget had been maintained with slight adjustment only that is also done
to all other states in Malaya. Despite the high incidence of poverty in
Sabah, there is no program at all to alleviate poverty, only hard-core
poverty are being budgeted for. Sabahans had been so muted as not to
make any forceful response to all these mistreatments.

But there is no evidence that it was Sukarno's intention to annex Sabah.
He was more concerned about the neo-colonisation of Sabah by Malaya than
gaining anything out of Sabah. Since he is proven right, to his death,
he is the real hero of Sabah for fighting for its true Freedom and
rights, unlike the other Sabahan leaders that had succumbed to various
forms of corruption and finally suffer as a result.

I have net read a single speech of Sukarno so cannot make a true
judgement. What I read was the propaganda by his enemies in Indonesia
and Malaysia but they all don't make sense compared to the evidences
that I see.

I also envy the progress made to our neighbour Kalimantan that enjoyed
progress with flyovers being built in Banjarmasin a few years earlier
than Kota Kinabalu, and Sabah has much more oil than Banjarmasin. This
is thanks to the 20% oil revenue retained by the states in Indonesia,
while Sabah only retains a promised 5% with as little as only 1%
delivered. Adding insult to injury, not a single cent is being given to
Sabah for its gas fields, and not single industry being built, instead
being piped to Bintulu for export, thus destroying our beatiful beaches
and seas, while Sabahans getting nothing out of it, except poverty.

I don't see much future for Sabahans in Sabah itself. In order to
survive, they have to work outside Sabah as had been done currently in
larger and larger numbers while illegal immigrants from Malaya getting
the richest juices of Sabah, illegal immigrants from the Philippines
depressing salaries for the bread crumb jobs and opportunities.

Let us hope that I'm wrong, but facts and figures don't lie. Only people
will lie. With what is happening to our jidiciary and election
commission, it looks more and more like Zimbabwe, another former British
Colony.

Sabah Population Explosion Due to Removal of Passpart Requrement for West Malaysians

http://groups.google.com.my/group/soc.culture.malaysia/browse_thread/thread/ec90ecf77431e129/62ad07ed7a711e58?hl=en&lnk=gst&q=sabah#62ad07ed7a711e58

Read the above article. It shows clearly that since that day, in 2005,
West Malaysians can just enter Sabah without any need for any Passport.

Blaming it all on Illegal Immigrants may be correct but they need not be
Filipinoes but also West Malaysians.

West Malaysians and Sarawakians are not supposed to work in Sabah
without any work permit but how strongly is it enforced when
non-Malaysians can get work easily.

Claiming that more than 500,000 are illegal Filipino immigrants are just
absurd when even now the deportation exercise only claimed to deport
150,000 with 50,000 so far.

It is just an excuse to continue the discriminatory budget allocation
for Sabah. Even after the deportation of the Filipino illegals, the
population of Sabah is still not 10% of the National population but more
like 12%, down from 13%, but the budget allocation even after the
mid-term review is still only 10%.

Many Sabahans are filled with racist hatred for the mostly muslim
Filipinoes ignoring the many Christian Immigrants as well. Now the truth
of the matter is that many of the street children are even Sabahans, as
reported in Borneo Post, Sabah.

The greatest danger to Sabah is Malaysia, i.e the Federal Government.
Even the West Malaysians immigrants that like to call themselves
Malaysians, don't give a damn about the lack of budget allocation for
SAbah because many of them are only thinking of going back to their home
states.

Why should the West Malaysians stay in backward Sabah when their home
states are much more advanced and developed than SAbah. Even Perlis is
much much better than even the city of Sandakan,that are much bigger in
area and resources.

Sabahans must stop looking for scapegoats and start looking at their
real enemy, which is Malaysia as represented by the Federal Government.

Obama Can Fight For Sabah


It was reported in the Borneo Post, 24th July, 2008 that Obama, the Democratic Party Nominee for the US Presidential Election, has relatives in Sandakan, Sabah.

I cannot get the online version of this news so I scanned my newspaper under public interest rights.

Based on this report, it is clear that Obama's sister's father in law is my Secondary School Alumni, i.e. a graduate from Sung Siew Secondary School, Sandakan.

Obama's step father was an Indonesian Muslim but his mother remains a Christian to this day. To Malaysians it is indeed very strange that a Muslim man can marry a Christian woman without she being converted to Islam but in Indonesia it is very common.

It is the other way, i.e. a Muslim woman marrying a Christain man, that is forbidden. It shows the respect that Islam has over Christianity and other religions of the book.

As it turned out, Sandakan is an extreme example of the effects of the Colonisation of Sabah by Malaya and the destruction of its environment making life so difficult for my family still there.

The beaches at Sandakan bay, with its unique walkable and strange island, Batu Sapi, the name of the area where my original family settled, used to be the most beautiful in the world. Despite the calm sea due to the protection of the Sandakan bay, it managed to form a beach, due to the dry coastline as a result of the hills nearby.

It was so rich with marine life that making a living was easy but all were gone, to be replaced by jobs in mills at salaries of only 20% of the poverty level, with the zoning of the entire beach into an industrial zone with earth fillings. Now, villages that used to be on beaches, became a septic tank where faeces are kept among the villages, because their surrounding areas are filled with with earth with only small drains provided, that are easily clogged. You can see the effects to a smaller extent in areas around Kota Kinabalu.

If Barrack Obama were to be elected to the US Presidency, hopefully, he could pressure Kuala Lumpur to develop Sandakan that is dangerously becoming a ghost town. Despite a profitable Oil Palm Industry, where Sandakan is a major producer in the whole of Malaysia, very little of the profits had gone to the citizens of Sandakan, only the ills of the Oil Palms, the poorly paid Oil Palm workers, who are paid below poverty levels.

Despite the huge demands of the Oil Palm industry, there is little investment in the infrastructures as shown by the lack of budget given to Sabah. 8% for a population of 13% and area of 23%. What is touted as a major revision is only 1 billion, i.e 1% of the whole national budget before it was revised. All other regions also demand more budget, so the contribution of the budget for Sabah is nothing to be proud of, given the immense needs of Sabah, due to the large population and area, as well as the inflationary pressures due to discriminatory trade rules against Sabah.

What makes it worse is that, there is NO effort at all to aleviate poverty. The Sabahans are easily fooled by false promises. None of my family who are living in shit, i.e. among faeces in their villages, are given any aid, despite having income levels that are way below the accepted poverty level. They applied but were rejected.

The simple reason that is stupidly misunderstoond by Sabahans is that, the promise by Malaya is only to aleviate hard core poverty, i.e. people who are starving. Making it worse, it is only applicable to people who are sick to the extent of not being able to work. Despite my relatives suffering from gastric, acute asthma and gaut, making them less fit for heavy work, they are still denied any help at all.

It meant that the mother of Dani, a primary school student who committed suicide because he cannot stomach his family's povety, will be repeated many many times. Dani's family is not entitled to the hardcore poverty despite eating only rice with boiled Kang Kong vegetable because his mother can still work as a cloth washer despite suffering from heart problems. Despite having no husband to support while having a few children, apart from Dani, she was given only RM60 per month by a welfare body. I don't think it was the Federal Government body, i.e the Malaysian government. It was most probably the State Government Body. The poverty level for Sabah in 2007 was RM820 according to a UMS lecturer.

Obama can help explain US policies on welfare but Sabahans should note that Obama is against excessive oil subsidy as shown by his campaign against Hilary Clinton. Instead of subsidising the price of oil, he favoured the money be used to give more welfare directly to the poor, which is the basis of all economies of the developed nations. Less subsidies but higher salaries which are due to higher welfares. Why work at low salaries if you can get welfare?

Sulu want to colonise Sabah

The money from Sabah is for the development of Sulu, not Sabah?

Sabahans are already among the poorest in Malaysia, what more to give
to Sulu. How about those Tausugs in Tawi-tawi, Kagayan and Basilan?

The lease agreement is only for half of Sabah, not the whole of Sabah.
Where got all the oil money?

I got the link from wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabah#cite_note-7


http://www.royalsulu.com/issues.html


"The Sultan of Sulu and Sultan of Sabah HM Sultan Muhammad Fuad A.
Kiram I stated that if Malaysia wants to stay in Sabah lawfully, then
Malaysia must pay the correct and proper amount of rent per year. If
the rental payment is not acceptable, he proposes "Joint
Administration" between the Sultan of Sulu and Sultan of Sabah and
Malaysia and/or the Royal Sultans of Malaysia headed by the Sultan
Agong (King of Malaysia), to administer Sabah, and all incomes are
split co-equally, similar to the joint administration or "Condominium
of France and Great Britain in Vanuatu" prior to Vanuatu's
independence.

Income to be derived from Sabah will be used to develop Sulu to uplift
the welfare of the Sulu people such as roads, hospitals, medicines,
education, peace and order, etc. The payment of correct rent by
Malaysia to the Sultanate of Sulu and Sabah and/or the Joint
Administration of Sabah will be the solution to the Sabah issue. "

Private Investigator Balasubramaniam accused the POLICE

Mainstream newspapers appear to make it appear as though the sworn
statement is to convict Najib. This is extremely far from the truth.
It is a complete lie.

He never accused anybody. He simply repeat what others had told him
but these statements were not even recorded officially or even
mentioned in the trial.

Both the Police and Public Prosecutor were implicated in the sworn
statement.

Now the police is asked to investigate whether the statements were
true or not.

This is just ridiculous. How can you ask the suspect himself to
investigate its wrong doing. Of course the Police will deny it.

It is so easy to confirm whether the statutary declarations were false
or not. Just put Balasubramaniam in court.

This fact is so clear that his life and that of his family is in
danger. The accused, i.e. the Police has lots to gain by making him
disappear or even better dead.

By making the second statutory declaration that he lied in the first
sworn statement, it no longer matters if he were dead or missing.
There is no sure way to confirm completely whether he lied or not,
even though common sense will tell you that the second statement just
a day after making the first one, was made under duress.

To imply that Anwar threatened Balasubramaniam for retracting his
statement is just stupid but this is what is believed by many readers
of Malaysian mainstream news agencies. Anwar does not gain anything at
all because he was not accused. Also, he is not powerful or well
equipped.

If Balasubramaniam were dead, Anwar will not immediately become the
Prime Minister. However the Police, as the accused party in the first
original statement, will gain a lot.

It is the Police that is the most dangerous party here. They are well
armed and well equipped. The Police also has the most to gain by him
being dead.

As for accusations against Najib, there is none at all. He also
revealed that he has information from witnesses that he had heard that
Najib knew the murdered victim, Altantuya well.

As I had mentioned the previous posts in sabahcolonised blogspot, the
deaths of the Chief Minsters of Sabah were not investigated properly.
What happened in the past, is clearly shown in this case. The
availability of explosives and the willingness to use them, shows the
link to the number of deaths of prominent politicians, including Tan
Sri Johari.

04-07-2008: Razak?s private investigator says cops suppressed key
information (updated)
by Pauline Puah 05:25PM (04-07-2008)

PETALING JAYA: A private investigator hired by murder accused Abdul
Razak Baginda has made a startling claim that the police covered up
information he gave them that would have linked Deputy Prime Minister
Datuk Seri Najib Razak to the murder victim Altantuya Shaariibuu.

P Balasubramaniam, a former Special Branch policeman, said in a
statutory declaration, that he was told of this by both Abdul Razak
and Altantuya.

Abdul Razak had told him that he met Altantuya through Najib and that
the two had an intimate relationship, he said.

He said that Abdul Razak also confided in him that the Mongolian
woman, victim of a gruesome killing, had demanded US$500,000 (RM1.65
million) as part of her share of a submarine deal.

From left: Gombak MP Mohamed Azmin Ali, Balasubramaniam, his lawyer
Americk Singh Sidhu and Anwar at the press conference at the PKR HQ in
Tropicana Damansara.
Balasubramaniam also said Altantuya had told him among other things
that she met Abdul Razak in Singapore with Najib and that she had also
met Abdul Razak and Najib at a dinner in Paris.

He said he told the police everything when he was arrested for seven
consecutive days and asked to give a statement in late 2006.

However, when his statement was finally recorded, the information
regarding the relationship between the DPM and Altantuya was left out
by the police.

Balasubramaniam also said when he gave evidence in the trial in Shah
Alam High Court, the prosecutor did not ask him any questions in
respect of Altantuya?s relationship with Najib and the phone call he
received from DSP Musa Safri, who is Najib?s aide-de-camp (ADC).

Musa Safri, according to Balasubramaniam, called him when two
Mongolian girls, a Mr Ang and another Mongolian girl called Amy turned
up at Abdul Razak Baginda?s house enquiring the whereabouts of
Altantuya.

?I received a call on my handphone from Musa Safri and duly handed the
phone to a Dang Wangi (police) inspector. The conversation lasted
three-four minutes after which he (the inspector) told the girls to
disperse and to go to see him the next day,? he said.

Abdul Razak was charged with abetting Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and
Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar in the murder of Altantuya, 28. All three
face the death penalty if convicted.

Abdul Razak is a close adviser to Najib while Azilah and Sirul were
members of the DPM?s security team.

Balasubramaniam also said that when he was with Abdul Razak at the
latter?s lawyer?s office the morning Abdul Razak was arrested, he was
shown an SMS, allegedly from Najib, telling the former to stay cool as
he was meeting the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan to
resolve the matter.

?Shortly thereafter at about 7.30am, Abdul Razak received an sms from
Najib and showed the message to both myself and his lawyer. This
message read as follows: I am seeing IGP at 11am today? matter will be
solved? be cool.?

Najib had previously denied knowing Altantuya. On Tuesday, Najib?s
wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor also said she was innocent of her
alleged involvement in Altantuya?s case.

Recently, Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamarudin in a statutory
declaration had alleged that Rosmah was one of the three people
present when the body of Altantuya was blown up with explosives on Oct
19, 2006.

Balasubramaniam spoke and released his 16-page statutory declaration
at a press conference organised by the de facto Opposition leader
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who himself is under police investigation
after a former party worker had alleged he was sodomised by Anwar.

Anwar, who has accused Najib of being behind the sodomy accusation,
has demanded an investigation into the alleged attempt by the police
to suppress information about the relationship between the DPM and
Altantuya.

Bala was at the press conference with his counsel Americk Sidhu. When
asked why he signed the statement when no one forced him to do so,
bala said he was desperate to leave the lock-up.

Below are excerpts of the Q&A:

Q: Bala, why did you take so long to come out ?
Americk: I represent him and I have instruction from him (to answer
questions).
The reason is very simple. Bala was waiting for the prosecution to
lead the evidence but the prosecution case was just shut very
recently. That?s the reason why he was so surprised (the information
he gave was not produced in court) and this was part of the reasons he
came out with the sworn statement.

Q: Why did he sign the police statement if things were omitted?
Americk: Bala said he was in the lock-up for seven consecutive days.
All he wanted to do was to go home. So instead of arguing with the
police what should be in the statement or not, he was happy to sign
the statement and leave.

Q: Was he forced to sign the statement?
Bala and Americk shook their heads.

Q: It was an important statement and you were not forced to sign it.
Yet you went ahead to sign because you want to go home?
Bala: In the lock-up, I did not have good vegetarian food. That?s why
(after seven days) when they brought the statement (and) asked me to
sign, I just (went) through it... if you have experience inside (a)
lock-up, definitely you will sign the statement... because you (want)
to go out, because I have three children. For what reason they put me
in the lock-up? There?s no reason for me to be arrested under 302 (of
the Penal Code for murder).

In the first place, I should not be in the lock-up (because) they can
call me (anytime) to take (my) statement. Even (then Deputy Public
Prosecutor) Sallehuddin (Saidin) did that, he took 73 pages of
statement. But he is (no longer) the DPP. He was removed, why?

Q: When Sallehuddin was in charge, did he record what you have said?
Bala: I think so.

Q: How do you know for sure that the sms was from Najib?
Bala: I was just sitting beside Razak when we met in the lawyer?s
office. He told me that he had sent a sms to Najib but then he never
received a reply. But when we?re sitting together, he received the
sms. That?s when he showed to me the sms and to the lawyer.

Q: Did you confirm the information (about Najib) that you got from
Razak and Altantuya?
Americk: If you don?t mind, I want to answer on behalf of Bala. This
is something we wanted to emphasise from the beginning, that what Bala
had said in his statutory declaration is not a statement of the truth.
It is a statement of what was said to him by Razak Baginda and
Altantuya.

So, he is not saying what he heard is absolute gospel truth. You must
distinguish between these two. So, I think it?s difficult for Bala to
answer your question (as) he just took down what was told to him.
Whether it?s true or not, that is another matter, he doesn?t know.

Q: Bala, were you informed when Najib met Altantuya in Singapore?
Bala: I am not very sure (but) it was at a diamond exhibition in
Singapore.

Q: How do you know that they met?
Americk: Again like I said we don?t know for sure. This was just what
was told to him. So we can?t answer you whether it?s a truth or not.

Q: You plan to submit the declaration to the court, or what is your
plan?
Americk: I think this pc (press conference) today is to bring to light
that there is this evidence available.

Rwanda is Safer and Cleaner than Malaysia

http://www.me-go.net/rtw/blog/category/rwanda/

Read the blog above and you'll find out.

Plastic is banned in Rwanda and front seat of buses are provided with
safety belts.

Having seen the ravages of platics on our beautiful beaches in
Sandakan and Kota Kinabalu, you'll appreciate the destructive power of
Plastics.

I also have a niece dead as a result of a mini-bus accident while
sitting at the front seat.

Philippines has sovereignty to Half of Sabah

Remember that ONLY HALF OF SABAH. Not the whole of Sabah, and it does
not include the parts that have the petroleum reserves, not even in
the Spratlys.

This geographical distribution is clearly written in the lease
agreement with Chartered Company and later on honoured by the British
and Malaysian governments through payments of these lease money to the
claimants to the Sulu Sultan throne.

The article below shows one of such claimant and it was clearly stated
that there is no longer a direct descencent of the Sultan, only his
second cousins. Datu Mudarasulail Kiram is one of them but he is a
Malaysian citizen.

Unlike the lease agreements for Hong Kong and Macau, there is no time
limit to the lease of Sabah to Chartered Company. So theoretically, as
long as the lease payments are made, Malaysia has sovereignty over
Sabah.

Since Malaysia does not recognise any of the claimants as the Sultan
of Sulu, while the Philippines appointed one of the claimants to the
throne, no matter how disputed the Sulu Sultanate is, the Philippines
can claim sovereignty over half of Sabah through the Sulu Sultanate
that are based in the Philippines.

What strikes me the most about the ICJ judgement on Batu Putih is the
transfer of sovereignty from Johor to Malaysia even without any
documents that were suddenly missing. In the case of Sabah, the
documents most certainly exist, in London because court judgments were
already been made in favour of some descendants of the Sulu Sultan, in
a British colonial court in Sabah. This is also in addition to
documents kept by these descendents.

The ICJ and international players don't seem to take into account the
views of the citizens. It is proven in the Hong Kong, Macau and even
Batu Putih cases. The Cobbold Commission conducted in Sabah prior to
the formation of Malaysia was not recognised by the Philippines so it
should be valid only for voicing out the views of Sabahans in those
days. Only one third was roughly was in favour of Malaysia. one third
only agree with conditions.

Since these conditions as written by the 20 point agreement was not
adhered to by Malaysia, it shows that two third of Sabahans had
rejected Malaysia. Will Sabahans be allowed to be independent? Not if
we study the cases in the return of Hong Kong and Macau to China.

Also as being noted in the Sipadan and Batu Putih cases, sovereignty
lies to the the party that defends and develop these sovereignty since
the beginning. The Philippines and Sulu descendents in the
Philippines, that are now citizens of the Philippines, had defended
these rfights the most.

The Malaysian government and descendents of the Sulu sultan in Sabah
had never been known to defend the sovereignty of the Sulu sultanate
over half of Sabah. Prefering to assume that Malaysia has already got
the sovereignty by virtue of it being within its territory. Just like
the Batu Putih case with Singapore. Malaysia had never recognised any
of the descendents as the rightful Sultan, unlike the Philippines.

Although earlier on I suggested that Sabahan descendents of the Sulu
Sultanate were to elect one of them as the Sultan, and claim
historical sovereignty rights over Sabah and Souther Philippines, it
is a case of it being too late. The ICJ case of Batu Putih is an eye
opener. Malaysia had lost sovereignty rights over Batu Putih because
it didn't protest the developments by Singapore on that island for so
long. Protesting later on was too late as Malaysia has already lost
its case.

This analysis is getting too long.

Given the chances of the Philippines rights over Sabah to be almost a
certainly, will half of Sabah be returned to the Philippines? Very
extremely unlikely on its own free will. Its citizens and government
have little respect fo the law, let alone international law.

One sore point is the Limbang area that had never been surrendered by
Brunei to Rajah Brooke and therefore to Malaysia, but Sarawakians in
other parts apart from Limbang and Malaysians in general will
certainly oppose any attempt to return Limbang to Brunei, even if
given compensations. I'm sure the LImbang residents will be happy to
become the citizens of Brunei, because they are Bruneians by race, and
very different from other Malaysian races.

Despite revelations of corruption of judges caught in video and
photographs, and no action being done to these judges, the government
is still overwhelmingly voted into power. Many judges even openly
stated in the newspapers that they had never been brainwashed to be
biased towards the government in a boot camp, despite being told to
keep an egg in their pockets all week and to obey junior members as
their leaders and being severely punished for
any dissent. These judges had to be so pathetic or just plain liars
not to even recall any of these improper behaviors in any boot camp,
but one judge remembered well and now recorded it in his court.

The only way for the Philippines to get Malaysia to court is by
invading Sabah forcefully. The Philippines used to be the most
advanced nation in South East Asia before it was destroyed by
corruption in the Marcos era and still reeling from this corruption
but they are making lots of progress. Their IT experts are getting
much better and they are well known in modifying their jeeps as buses,
called Jeepneys.Their civil engineering is also excellent as shown by
the road that they had built in Semporna that still lasted in pristine
condition for more than 20 years, whereas Malaysian built roads could
only last three months, as shown by the roads in Sandakan.

Malaysia on the other hand, is now rotting with corruption and
stupidity. Their buildings even when new started crumbling and
leaking. Malaysian car industry may appear big, but it is mostly
outsourced. Outsourcing is the order of the day, from IT to hard
engineering. There is no pride in modifying themselves. Its army is
also untested.They had only fought against communist guerrillas and
unsuccessfully at that.

Marcos had ordered such as invasion before but the Muslims in the
Southern Philippines that were used as the soldiers, rebelled and led
to the formation of MNLF, led by Nur Misuari. Now these same soldiers
are the one demanding that Sabah be returned to the Philippines. Many
of them already got Malaysian identity cards, and can speak Malay very
well as well as knowing the areas intimately. Many of the illegal and
legal immigrants in Sabah are Filipinos who are ill treated by corrupt
soldiers and policemen and will certainly have a grudge against
Malaysian government officers. They have better motivation and
knowledge than these West Malaysian soldiers and policemen that only
stay in Sabah for a few years. Nowadays, even policemen are mostly not
Sabahans.

Many West Malaysians still think that Sabah is just as big as Pahang.
Even those that have stayed for a few years in Kota Kinabalu does not
know how far Tawau is and I I don't think West Malaysians will want to
defend Sabah to the death. They only want to steal its resources to be
brought back to Malaya. That is why they are so corrupted and
arrogantly stupid in Sabah. I'm afraid that Yong Teck Lee and Judge
Ian Chin and other warriors of justices and rights, are just too late.

Strangely, I don't blame these corrupt and stupid people. I blame ICJ
and the international committee such as those in the Cobbold
Commission. They should think more of the inhabitants of the land.
They should not allow people to steal from others just because some do
not defend their rights, such as the case with Singapore, and to
respect the wishes of the people by holding proper democratic
elections in Hong Kong, Macau and Sabah. Giving immunity to Mugabe and
his kingpins will only make it worse. Similarly with Myanmar. Justice
must be served even if it means lots of lives were lost.

Now I see Sukarno as the real hero of Sabah. I should read the words
that Sukarno had used in defernding Sabah instead of reading biased
official historical records. Tun Mustapha and Fuad Stephens were just
greedy leaders that were so impatient to get dirty rich but in the end
they fell victims themselves.

DAILY EXPRESS NEWS Cops urged to monitor Sulu throne pretender

Kota Kinabalu: The police have been urged to monitor the activities of
a so-called Sultan of Sulu, Esmail Kiram II, who has been visiting
districts in the East Coast since last Friday.

Sabah Sulu Cultural Association (SSCA) President Datu Mudarasulail
Kiram @Datu Paijal said he was worried after hearing Esmail, who is
among the many claimants to the throne of the Sulu Sultanate, had come
to Sabah for a visit.

"If he is here just for a courtesy visit then it is all right but what
I am worried is that he (Esmail) may have ulterior motives," he said
Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters at his office in the Sinsuran shop complex here,
Mudarasulail said a big banner had been put up in Semporna welcoming
the arrival of Esmail but it had already been taken down by the
authorities.

"As far as I am concerned, Sulu has no more Sultan because it is now
under the Republic of the Philippines. Where in the world do we find a
republic that has a Sultan?," he asked.

Mudarasulail said, in fact, he is the recognised heir to the throne as
he is receiving the cession money of RM5,300 per year from the
Malaysian Government that is paid to the Sulu Sultanate.

Based on the line of succession of the Royal Sultans of Sulu,
Mudarasulail is the first son of the late Sultan Makuttah A. Kiram who
was the first son of Sultan Muhammad Esmail Kiram 1 (1947-1973).

According to him, Esmail Kiram II who is now visiting Sabah is
supposedly his uncle but even though he was fathered by Datu Raja Muda
Punjungan Kiram, the second son of Sultan Mawalil Wasit Kiram (the
father of Muhammad Esmail Kiram I) he has no royal blood.

"I for one agree that the Sulu claim on Sabah is no longer valid
firstly because before achieving independence in 1963 the Cobbold
Commission found that the majority of the people in Sabah wanted to be
part of Malaysia," he said.

"Secondly, if you lease something but did not service it, after
sometime it lapses and would be no more," he said.

He feared that Esmail Kiram II together with his delegation are in
Sabah following instructions from Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)
chief, Nur Misuari, who was getting the Philippine Government to
revive the claim on Sabah.

"I know for a fact that Esmail and Nur Misuari are good friends," he
said, adding that the authorities should also check whether they had
obtained the necessary documents if they were to hold a procession in
Lahad Datu.

Mudarasulail urged Malaysians of Sulu descendants and those who are
working in Sabah not to be influenced by Esmail.

"I am also willing to help the Malaysian Government fight the case in
the International Court of Justice if it comes to that," he said,
adding that he is a full-fledged Malaysian who just wants to live in
peace and harmony as well as enjoy the benefits of development.

Mudarasulail, who is an Umno member, expressed his intention to enter
the political fray by contesting for the Umno Lahad Datu division

Sabah's Leaders must be given primary school lessons

This uneducated idiot that the KL politicians want to push as
Sabahan's leader need to be taught basic primary school mathematics.

The 20 billions that has not even been delivered is Dog's leftover
ONLY.

Where does this 20 billion come from?? It is from Sabah, idiot.
Stolen from Sabah and then given back crumbs to Sabah so that Sabah
will be the poorest in the whole world.

We are fast on the way. There is little hope for our children. They
must be prepared to work overseas whereas the poorest people on earth,
such as Timor-timor will be employed as workers displacing Sabahans.
Even Myanmar is as rich as SAbah that is why very few of them will
want to work in Sabah given the low paying conditions.

The 20 billion is only 7.9 % of the National budget, but Sabah's
population is 13% and area is 25%.

The fair allocation is as indicated by the Education allocation of
15%, but even this is low when compared with the inflationary
pressures as a result of Federal Government deliberate policies. Every
import must go through Kuala Lumpur, even those from Brunei. Why?
Import had to be declared only in Kuala Lumpur.

In order to be fair, not even enough to reduce our poverty rate, the
allocation should be doubled.
The 1 billion is pitiful. What is needed is 3 billion more in order to
be FAIR ONLY, not even enough to address our poverty rate.

Sabah's poverty rate can only be reduced with excess budget allocation
in order to catch up with the rest of Malaysia.

Lajim: Be grateful for Sabah progress

SUNGAI PETANI: Sabah could not have achieved progress today without
adequate financial help from the Federal Government, said Beaufort MP
Datuk Seri Lajim Ukin.

Hitting out at the Sabah Progressive Party's planned vote of no-
confidence against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, he
said SAPP president Datuk Yong Teck Lee should be thankful for the
efforts taken by Barisan Nasional in developing Sabah.

He said the people would not forget that when Parti Bersatu Sabah
pulled out from Barisan in 1990, development in Sabah was affected and
funds from the Federal Government were not readily available.

"People must realise that it will be a loss for the people of Sabah if
we go on fighting with the Federal Government," he said.

"We have UMS (Universiti Sabah Malaysia), a RM20bil allocation under
the Ninth Malaysia Plan, a RM1bil allocation announced by the Prime
Minister during his recent visit to Sabah and RM1.76bil in soft loans.

"Where did all the money come from if not from the Federal Government?

"We must be thankful for this and continue to give our support to the
Federal Government," Lajim, who is also Deputy Transport Minister,
said after opening a state-level campaign at Dataran MPSP to encourage
the wearing of rear seat belts and crash helmets here on Saturday.

Fwd: Lajim is grateful for the Dog's Leftover to Sabah

Subject: Lajim is grateful for the Dog's Leftover to Sabah
To: soc.culture.malaysia


Lajim is grateful for the underdevelopment of Sabah to the extent that
Sabah is now among the poorest in the whole world. I don't think the
federal government is happy until Sabah is absolutely the poorest in
the whole world with the current budget allocation.

With only RM50 million per year for Sabah's roads, that is more than
25% the size of the whole of Malaysia, which is less than 1% of the
National budget for Road Development, the road to Sandakan City, with
a population of more than 100,000, and the largest producer of Palm
Oil in Malaysia but among the poorest in the whole world, with roads
that are much worse than those going to Batak Regioins of Indonesia,
that I visited more than 20 years ago.

Even 20 years ago, Indonesia is full of big buildings, much more than
those in Sabah. Similarly for Manila. If you watch discovery channels
of places that we thought were poor such as Rwanda, Somalia, it is
obvious that their houses are much better and larger than most of the
houses in Sabah, that are still full of rusty zinc roofs, even right
in the city centres.

Is there any promise of addressing the situation? NONE whatsover so
why should Lajim be happy about NOTHING.

The budget remains less than 13% or 25% that Sabah deserves, at least
to take into account of its size and population. Any less, will mean a
further deterioration of the economy of Sabahans.

There is no promise to REDUCE POVERTY!!! Only HARDCORE poverty, by
giving them zinc roofs. Many Sabahans are not even qualified despite
having no income, nobody else to support them, just because they look
healthy but heavily in debt, tying to set up shops among the poorest
people that cannot even pay their rice.

In the case of Doni, the primary school boy that committed suicide
because of hardcore poverty, despite having no father, a sick mother,
with many more brothers and sisters, and given only RM60 per month by
the state government welfare. The federal government does not even
bother to help despite garnering 95% of Sabah's revenue.

Unfortunately Filipinoes get the most help because they know how to
pretend to be poor by not even bothering to look after their healths
or look for jobs or businesses.

Lajim may look wealthy because of the portions of the inadequate
budget allocation for Sabah but he is surrounded by poor people that
he can easily bribe or threaten. Just look at Zimbabwe. Despite the
whole nation crumbling to dust, Mugabe is still very rich, and still
get much support from armed men, that he paid to steal from the
majority of the masses.

This is the reason why the GINI(income gap) for Malaysia is the
highest in South East Asia, among the highest in Asia, second only to
Papua New Guinea. Lajim driving his luxury cars, while Doni's family
were given only RM60 per month, with little chance of business or
job,simply because there is no business in Sabah due to the lack of
investment.

The budget is so pitiful inadequate that in order to survive,
contractors in Sabah had to resort to cheap foreign labourers that are
underpaid and discriminated, from the poorest regions on earth such as
Timor-timor and Myanmar. Even here the specifications had to be
dewatered to the point that road thickness that require 6 inches were
only built as 3 inches.

I heard about these stories more than 10 years ago but dismiss them as
unlikely until I read the budget allocations for Sabah that is way
below our load in terms of population and area. Despite what I had
pointed out, people like Lajim still do not even bother to look into.

Lajim is an uneducated person. He does not even know how to count.
Percentages are meaningless to him. No wonder he is happy to be given
only Dog's leftover.

Malaysian Government does not encourage Flying

Although Malaysia touts as being very advanced to the point of sending
astronauts to Space, they are more likely space tourists because they
are not pilots.

Even in Malaysia, there is no encouragement in getting involved in
Flying as shown by this statement by the Sultan Azlan himself.
Actually it is a fact.

Despite Profefssional Pilots being recognised as the highest paying
job at entry level in Malaysia, at RM10,000 a month, there is no
scholarship on offer for students who want to become Professional
Pilots.

Even Aircraft Maintainance courses, are not given any offer for
scholarships. Luckily parents such as myself can afford to contribute
some financial aids in addition to the insufficient PTPTN loans.

KWSP does not recognise flying as one of the courses that it allows
for withdrawal. It is considered similar to learning how to drive a
car or motorcycle. In fact driving is part of the skills that is most
important for many jobs and yet the Malaysian government does not
encourage it.

It encourages Malaysians to be passengers instead of being the
drivers, as clearly exemplified by the so called ASTRONAUTS.

One excuse could be that driving can be used for private purposes.
Aren't education useful for recreational private purposes as well?
This is especially true for the PPL, private pilot license. As its
name imply, it is a license to allow a person to fly a limited type of
aeroplane for private purposes, but it was clearly stated that it can
also be for business purposes, as long as the pilot is not paid for
flying the aeroplane.

Isn't it similar to our normal car driving license. Of course it does
not have any private mentioned anywhere but its terms and conditions
are very clear. You cannot use the license to ask money from
passengers. In order to ask money from passengers, he needs to get
another type of driving license. Similarly for aeroplanes. I heard of
a doctor who pilots an aeroplane whenever he visits the Pamol
Plantation. Unfortunately he his plane crashed while taking off.

Now Pamol Plantation is accessible by good roads so the airfield there
may not be maintained any more. However there are many other estates
where it is worthwhile to fly. In Australia, many farmers fly
aeroplanes.

Aeroplanes are no longer expensive. Ultralights in Europe, or Sport
Planes in USA can cost less than RM100,000. However, it is the
certification and licensing that is most difficult in Malaysia. In
Malaysia, it only allows these planes if they are assembled and built
by the pilot himself. He cannot import the plane readily built.

For a backward nation like Malaysia, it is no longer surprising.
Malaysian is in the level of the worst nations on earth, the sub-
sahara, such as Eritrea. Our GINI, i.e. gap in national income is
similar to these backward nations.

Even Eritrea operate more advanced jets than Malaysia. They operated
Su27 earlier than even Malaysia getting its Su-30, which is the
updated version of Su27, but Eritrea operated its Su27 20 years ago.

The only loud mouth that Malaysian government tells its people is that
it is well developed. Well, after seeing Dicovery Channels of the so
called backward nations such as Rwanda, Somalia and Palestine, it is
very clear that these nations are also well developed, judged from
their houses, all large stone buildings. Even the police cars operated
by the Hamas administration are much better than the Kancils that the
Malaysian police use.

Most Malaysians are still stuck with small terrace houses or houses
with rusted zinc roofs, as clearly shown by UN statistics. Abdullah's
claims that our average income has increase by 4% per year as a sign
that Malaysia is improving, is actually a lie. It is lower than
inflation and with the highest GINI in Asia, second only to Papua New
Guinea, most Malaysians don't earn that much.

The worst affected are Sabahans and Sarawakians. Its oil is given less
than 5% royalty, and its gas is just stolen for free, despite the
destructions of our environment and therefore the livelihood of our
fishermen. No wonder Sabah is among the poorest in the whole world, in
the same level as Myanmar, Acheh and Sulawesi. If the Malaysian GINI
is 0.49, Sabah should be 0.7, probably the highest in the world.

What is worst is that, there is no sign of it being improved. Budget
is still at 8% for a population of 13% and area of 25%. What is
promised is RM1 bilion, not even sure if it were for one year. If it
were for one year, then the budget allocation should have been
increased by 20% of the 8%, making it only 9.5%, which is still
inadequate.

The Education Ministry is the only ministry that address Sabah more
fairly in giving it 16% of the national budget in Education but it is
too little and too late. Many schools in Kalabakan still do not have
chairs and tables. It may appear to be generous, but it shows that the
Malaysian government even discriminate Sabah further especially in
other areas. With Education given 16% allocation, it means that other
departments are given much less than 8%. For example, the allocation
for roads in Sabah is only RM50 million per year.

One reason why there is a reasonable allocation for Sabah's education
is that its top leaders in Sabah are staffed by Sabahans and are still
professionals, i.e. they are teachers or lecturers, unlike the PTD
staff that normally head other departments. Unfortunately PTD is
already encroaching into the professionalism of the Education
Department by installing their officers in the Education Departments.
Sooner or later, the leaders of these Education Departments will be
the unprofessional PTDs.

A clear example is the case of the Sabahan top Federal Government
Financial Officier in Sabah, who is a geologist. I also heard cases of
a Librarian heading the Immigration Department. Or Accountant heading
an engineering department or vice versa. These accountants and
engineers may be professionals if properly certified and trained but
putting them in other fields will negate their potential to be
professionals. Unless, the Mr. Geologist can take Accounting exams to
be certified by the Accounting body.

Malaysians must wake up. We are already low down in the world ranking.
It is only a matter of time we will be the lowest. Lower than even
Papua New Guinea and Timur-timur. I'm sure Sabah will join these
poorest groups much earlier, if not already in these groups given the
high inflation in Sabah.

Flying academies must give equal opportunities to all
BERNAMA
Email to friend Email to Friend Print article Print Article

IPOH, Sat.:

Flying academies in the country should give equal opportunities to all
Malaysians who wish to undergo pilot training regardless of the
candidates' financial background, said the Sultan of Perak, Sultan
Azlan Shah.
The Ruler urged all agencies responsible for providing financial
assistance to give special consideration to those from the lower-
income group to take up pilot training which involved substantial
cost.

"The flying academies must give equal opportunities for training to
everyone. The agencies responsible for sponsoring students should
provide scholarships and loans to assist students from the lower-
income group to train at these flying academies," he said.

Sultan Azlan Shah said this at the conclusion of training for the
'Military Wing Standard' (MWS), 'Commercial Pilot License/
Helicopter' (CPL/H) and 'Multi Engine Conversion/Instrument Rating
(Helicopter)' (MEC/IR/H) licences at the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport,
here today. Also present was the Raja Muda of Johor, Tunku Ismail
Ibrahim.

All the courses were carried out at the Integrated Training & Services
Sdn Bhd (IT&S) located adjacent to the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport,
here.
Currently, the cost of training to be a helicopter pilot at the IT&S
is RM475,000 for a period of 18 months while the course for flying
fixed-wing aircraft is RM232,000 for a period of 18 months.

Nine helicopter pilot trainees from the Army Air Unit (PUTD),
including a younger brother of the Raja Muda of Johor, Tunku Idris
Tunku Ibrahim Ismail, and four pilot trainees from the Royal Malaysian
Navy (RMN) received their `wings' and certificates for the MWS course
from Sultan Azlan Shah.

Nine pilot trainees from the Fire and Rescue Department completed
their training for the CPL/H course while 13 pilots from the PUTD who
completed their MEC/IR/H also received their wings and certificates
from the Sultan of Perak.

Malay with 15 A1 didn't get any Scholarship offer!

http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/NST/Wednesday/National/2245715/Article/index_html

Whereas a Chinese with only 12 A1 and with parents who can afford to
send her elder sister to Australia and sending her for private A level
courses is given a Scholarship/Loan.

With the quota for non-bumiputras increased to 45% from a previous
10%, this will make it even worse for Malays and bumiputras.

I met his father at school. I suspect the Sabah State government
didn't offer any scholarship because they are sure that he will get a
PSD scholarship. But that was on the 21st of Mei.

If this is true it is a very bad situation where qualified and
brilliant natives are derived of their rights and worse discriminated
in Malaysia that is supposed to have special privileges for Malays.

The selfish racist chinese have been lying all this while.

I shall see the father in the next few weeks in order to confirm this
story further.

I just hope that the authorities will correct their mistakes. But this
is not a strange happening. I heard also that a Sabahan who got 10As
didn't get any offer at any Local University, let alone scholarship
for overseas studies.

Let Sabahans Decide Their fate

These claims keep on cropping up year by year as though Sabahans are
just cows.

If the international community were sincere in preventing future
bloodbath, let UN hold referendum in Sabah again to decide if Sabahans
want to be with the Philippines or just remain in Malaysia to be
treated as third class citizens, or better still, get its full
independence.

The heirs to the Sultan of Sulu will have to decide whether they want
to be citizens of the nation of Sabah or continue being given lease
money.

Misuari says claim over Sabah would be revived

DAVAO CITY, Philippines — The Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF)
and the Sultanate of Sulu will hale Malaysia to the International
Court of Justice over the claim to the State of Sabah in Borneo.

MNLF founder and former chairman Nur P. Misuari, in his first meeting
with followers following his ouster as chairman by the group's central
committee, said the Bangsamoro in Mindanao would try all legal avenues
to settle the Sabah issue peacefully.

"We are not after war, so we will convince the Malaysian government
for the sake of peace," Mr. Misuari said in his state of the
Bangsamoro address at a local school here.

The second Mindanao Leadership Summit was attended by over 10,000 MNLF
combatants and members.

Mr. Misuari

said his detention was a result of conspiracy of both "local and
foreign" groups who are out to silence him on Sabah.

In November 2001, Mr. Misuari declared war on the Arroyo
administration on the eve of elections in the Autonomous Region in
Muslim Mindanao.

He was then on the verge of losing the gubernatorial polls after
accusing the government of reneging on a September 1996 final peace
agreement.

Later, alleged MNLF guerillas and Abu Sayyaf bandits attacked an Army
headquarters in Jolo that left 100 people dead and many wounded,
including civilians.

Mr. Misuari fled to Malaysia where he was captured by authorities with
six of his aides on Jampiras Island near Sabah. - BusinessWorld

How could he sell Malaysia to IMF when he was just a deputy PM?

Idiot.

What ambitions? To be the PM?
Idiot.

Anwar was sacked from UMNO without even being given the chance to
defend himself.

At least he is doing what Islam commands us to do. Fight for justice
to the last drop of our blood. Anyone who refuses to do this, like
Sabahans, will be condemned by Allah in this world and hereafter.

Look at Sabahans. The poorest in the WHOLE WORLD, and yet refused to
fight for their rights. Despite all the Petroleum wealth, Sabah is
only given an allocation of 8% for a population of 13%, and yet
SAbahans NEVER FIGHT FOR IT to the death. This is certainly DAYUS.

As a result Palestine is much richer than many parts of Sabah with a
much lower poverty level, despite being killed in large numbers by the
might of Israel and USA, and their buildings destroyed.


> he part of Umno before? Lest we forget. Hope the arsenic really "killed" that

Forget what? That Anwar was no longer with UMNO from 1996 onwards?

When Anwar was still with UMNO, the situation in Sabah was not that
bad. But in just 12 years, without Anwar, Sabah has become the poorest
in the WHOLE WORLD, not just in Malaysia, and there is no news of
increased budget allocation in order to address the acute poverty in
Sabah, still the discriminatory budget allocations for Sabah.

And look at the statistics. In Anwar's absense, the economic
statistics had dropped drastically. The worst is the gap between the
rich and poor. It became so bad that Malaysia is equivalent to the Sub
Sahara nations, and 2nd last in Asia. And you still want to blame
Anwar!

I've checked all Anwar's figures. Most had been verified except the
total investment, which indicates local investment and number of legal
aggreements.

GINI and income gap data can be found at wikipedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_income_equality

FDI, foreign direct investment from UN.

> virus off...dunno about the ZOG virus...that one have to wait and see to our


You are part of the virus that robs the poor to give to the rich.
One thing is sure. Anwar is not part of the virus.

Malaysia has never seen such a gross imbalance between the rich and
poor since the day Anwar was imprisoned. I'm also ashamed of myself
for not studying these economic data more carefully.

What makes it so bad, is that Sabah has also been turned from among
the richest to the poorest in the whole world, despite all the oil
palm and petroleum resources.

What makes it worse is that the nations helped by IMF, such as South
Korea and Indonesia had performed so much better than Malaysia.
