Bidayuh Barisan Nasional Leaders - MASTER First
KUCHING: The State Government has agreed with all the terms and conditions requested by residents of the four villages affected by the proposed RM320-million Bengoh Dam project, said Minister of Environment and Public Health, Datuk Michael Manyin Jawong. He said the Chief Minister Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud has clarified the issue in his recent trip to Anah Rais, Padawan and considered it settled as all the affected villagers have agreed unanimously to the terms of agreement. “I would like to assure the residents of these four villages that their identity: the names of their villages and their respective headmen will be retained along with score of other amenities such as schools, bridges, roads, places of worship, community halls and football fields have been approved,” Manyin told the media at a hotel here yesterday. He added that the four affected villages - Kampung Semban, Kampung Sait, Kampung Rejoi and Kampung Bojong - will be relocated to ‘Medan Tun Abdul Razak’, a mini township which is located in a sprawling 3,000 acres of land between Kampung Skio in Bau and Kampung Semadang in the Penrissen area. “This was the area they requested and the Government has approved it. The Government will also build ‘Rumah Mesra Rakyat’ for all the 199 affected families and they can move in by May next year. “They will have to move in by May 2009 so that works on the dam can begin in earnest,” Manyin said. He also said that Sarawak Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority (SALCRA) would develop the remaining land for oil palm plantation which the villagers would also have a share in it. “The villages will be allocated 10 percent of the joint-venture and the remaining 20 percent will be entrusted to Dayak Bidayuh National Association (DBNA) and Bidayuh Graduates’ Association (BGA) to manage for their cultural and education funds,” he explained. Manyin, who is the most senior Bidayuh in the Sate Cabinet said the name ‘Medan Tun Abdul Razak’ was chosen by the Government as he (Tun Razak) is regarded as ‘Bapa Pembangunan Malaysia’ (Father of Development) and not meant to Malaysianised the affected villagers. “We do not want this thing to be politicised by anyone, now and in the future. The name was chosen so that it will be easier to solicit for funds from both the State and Federal Governments,” he said. Manyin also assured the people of Kampung Jambu to cast away their worries as their land will no longer be affected by the exercise. “The Rural Growth Centre (RGC) was implemented some years ago in Kampung Bayur will be shifted to the new mini township to ensure its economic viability,” he said. Meanwhile, Bengoh State Assemblyman, Dr Jerip Susil said the Land and Survey Department has gone to the ground to itemise the affected properties for compensation purposes. He also assured the affected villagers that the Government will compensate them accordingly for all their houses, planted trees and crops and will also allocate each household with three acres of land in the new mini township. “We want them (the affected villagers) to benefit from this exercise, otherwise they will never have the chance to be connected with roads in the next 10 to 20 years as their present villages are isolated and too far away,” Dr Jerip added. The proposed Bengoh Dam will be used to supply water to both Kuching and Samarahan Divisions. Among those present were Political Secretaries to the Chief Minister, Wilfred Rata Nissom and John David Nyauh, DBNA President Ik Pahon Joyik, BGA President William Nyigor and BGA Advisor, Dahim Nadot.
Yesterday, Micheal Manyin sold the Bidayuh dignity to Barisan Nasional for RM 20,000.00 and secured the social contract with Barisan Nasional by the doubtful promises of development. This is another disgrace act by the Bidayuh Barisan Nasional to pleasing the master and ignore the voices of the rakyat. As a result, Taib went to Mukah to grace the church in order to uphold the religion tolerance among the Sarawakian.
The story goes like this, Manyin and Dawos sold their dignity to Barisan Nasional and Taib grace the church as he is the High Priest of Mukah. Therefore, it is not a tolerate act as the leaders of Barisan Nasional to play with this sensitivity action. Never is the nation history a non- Christian grace the Christian congregation. Have Tun Razak grace any temples or churches in malaysia? Therefore, I called Dawos and Manyin as the sellers and Taib Mahmud as the buyer. The transaction is called Dignity Share for prosperity through the Barisan Nasional International Bank. Sound funny right?
Let get back to today issue, the promises by Manyin to the New Generation of Tun Razak. Manyin would stay in Tun Razak and support the people in term of mentality and spiritual struggle. Imagine that the place is crowded and the social illness start to occur. The land is no more enough for agriculture as gardening is the bidayuh main activity. What will happened to the new township? Youngsters have nothing to do with SALCRA!!
Yes there will be 30 - 20 % share for DBNA and BGA? What is that for? Another fund to support the high committee political agenda? Well, DBNA is not a NGO but a proxy to Barisan Nasional where easy support can be harvested. This is why I never register as a member because it is not for unity but to scattered everyone away. The education programs by the committee is another doubtful expenses as many of them admitted that they are doing it FOC.
Well, where is the money goes to? everyone can do that kind of ceramah even pastors can make it better. Andy Gray said in EA Game, " Even my grandmother can kick better than that!!". This is money politic practiced by the Bidayuh leaders to extend their prosperity. None of them are the rakyat hope and hero.
I called upon all bidayuh to withdraw your membership form DBNA and let the beneficial get what they deserve. Hotel Penrissen is not our and so to Borneo highland Resort. Minos is squeezing your sweat to recover his business. And it is forbidden for a Minister to have a business.
Jerip says "Meanwhile, Bengoh State Assemblyman, Dr Jerip Susil said the Land and Survey Department has gone to the ground to itemise the affected properties for compensation purposes."
What does Jerip know about environment and anthropology? If you get sick you should find him and not Dawos. Am I right? This is a flawless political tactic played my this team to hit us unto the ground. Well, it is our fault to entrust them our right. As the STAR ex-candidate, he has forgotten his people in Penrissen. This is not my personal attack and in fact, he was listening to us before and not now anymore.
This is another failure of the oppositions. No vision to fight and no reason to campaign. The exact example are Jerip and other ex-STAR. If oppositions want to rules, then make the rakyat first and not the master. Yes, we still have policies and laws above us but neither money nor power can protect us form the law. Therefore, there should be no fear to gain your right.
Let us mark this year as the funniest beginning for Bidayuh as we are in the line to slaughterhouse. The butcher is ready and the leaders are to pack the meat to Bau wet market (Barisan Halal Market). Mourn together with me as the weakest creature and remember this day of "slaughtery " of dignity and rights.
Let us bargain for more sacrificial for Bidayuh betterment in the future. get ready to rename Kota Padawan to "Kota Mawi" or "Kota Tiara Jacklina" for this if the propose of politic.
