Will God Save Sabah?

Sabah on Fire in Parliament

Taken from Lim Kit Siang Blog

Sabah on fire - that is one clear message of the first debate of the new Parliament which ends today with the three-day Ministerial replies starting tomorrow.

Is the March 8 “political tsunami” in Peninsular Malaysia reaching Sabah?

Two outstanding examples:

1. “We (Sabah BN MPs) have never jumped. We can move by simply forming a new party. Then we can decide where we want to sit…here or there”, he said, gesturing in the direction of the opposition and backbenchers. – Datuk Seri Ghapur Salleh (MP for Kalabakan).

2. There is no harm in Barisan Nasional MPs in Sabah defecting to the Opposition. What’s the point of moving to a terrace house if one is already living in a bungalow? However, for some of us, there seems to be no pleasure in living in this bungalow. What’s the point of living in a bungalow if one has to sleep beside the toilet? - Datuk Anifah Aman (MP for Kimanis).

The fire rages on in Sabah to end over four decades of discrimination, marginalization and even victimisation of Sabahans in Malaysia.


Sabah was sold to UMNO in 1991 by Tun Mustapha Harun and there was the darkest time for the Sabahan. Labuan then was given to federal government with no compensation to the state government. That was a very beautiful game played by Tun Mustapha together with Harris Salleh. What was happened?

“UMNO had a quick rise to power since its entry into Sabah in 1991 where before that both eastern Malaysian states were not penetrated by the party, whose president is the de facto leader of the ruling coalition BN and automatically the Prime Minister of Malaysia. This has given rise to dissent as the Chief Minister rotation system was halted just as UMNO was holding the post. Thus the 2004 general elections saw widespread disillusionment, coupled with an ineffectual opposition. The state assembly is now dominated by the ruling party BN with only one seat held by an opposition politician who is an independent candidate. This was caused by a general sentiment where a number of voters were reluctant to cast votes for BN whose victory was almost assured but did not trust the opposition parties, most of which were not vigorously active before the election. Therefore many cast votes for independent candidates”. – Wikipedia

“Desirous of perpetuating Malay power in Sabah, the Federal government allowed Mustapha to do as he pleases and was assigned a special aide dispatched from Kuala Lumpur to be his special adviser. A lawyer by profession, Syed Kechik eventually became the most powerful man in Sabah, as powerful as the Chief Minister if not more. He was also the most hated.He was practically running the state on behalf of Mustapha, who spent most of his time in the play grounds of Europe and the Middle East.Mustapha spent most of his time in casinos in Beirut and London.

Mustapha not only collected private planes but also collected overseas properties, wives and mistresses at the expense of state resources. He was also responsible for opening the back door and allowed illegal immigrants to come in from southern
Philippines to increase the Muslim population in the state and was notoriously responsible for mass conversion to Islam of some indigenous tribes in the state.” – Hantu Laut Blog

Sabahans were living beside the toilet of the UMNO and it is a great long time for them to live and enslaved in their very own mother land. UMNO gave money to Tun Mustapha to have his personal jet and bungalow form the State fund. The Sabahan then have to compete with the refugees from Philippines and Indonesia to survive. The refugees were given MyCard and converted to Muslim so that they will be able to support UMNO. In fact, there were a lot of money being used by the UMNO members in Sabah to gamble and to build their own wealth while the people are suffering. What is the relevant of UMNO in Sabah if the Kadazan-Dusun-Murut is not well taken care of?

What Hanifah Aman has saying during the Parliament debate should be well digest by the Sabahan themselves. Yes, there is no pint to stay in a big mansion if you are sleeping beside of the toilet bowl. In fact some group of UMNO members have proved their disrespect to the Sabahan. Nazri Aziz was saying that the illegal immigrant problem in Sabah is under control. Osu Sukam and Khasitah Ghaddam are the two bandits who were suppose to be punishing earlier. Money were use to build their own wealth while the Kadazan Dusun are toiling very hard to get a plate of rice while Osu is gambling with the state money.

Jeffery Kitiangan is not the Kadazan’s enemy. Though he has played a lot of froggy games with BN Sabah, he does not sell every Sabahan right to UMNO as what the others did. Pairin Kitiangan is a speechless creature and nothing more like a running dog of Musa Aman. Illegal logging is still the worst in Sabah. I was driving along the Keningau-Sipitang road and I found about nine lorries with logs load. Some of the logs are very small but have been cut down to feed the corrupted politician. Why does Pairin Kitiangan and Bernard Dompok or Maximus Ongkili are just closing their eyes on the evil work of Musa Aman? Now, I would like to say that Barisan Nasional is the real enemy of the Sabahan and UMNO is just nothing to do with the Sabahan themselves. Yes, UMNO has nothing to do with the Kadazan, Dusun, Rungus and Murut.

The Sabahan should accept the fact that they are marginalized by UMNO and they must get rid of UMNO or get rid of Malaysia. Let enough be enough and now is the time to be independent from UMNO’s evil and torture. There are many things you can bargain with the federal government. If you fail then your decedents will put a total blame on you.
