1. FEDERAL GOVT AGREES TO KEEPING JKKK NAME IN SARAWAK
Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said the Sarawak government wants the Jawatankuasa Keselamatan dan Kemajuan Kampung (JKKK) name to be maintained in the state so as to avoid confusion.
He said this in response to the statements made by Baru Bian, Chong Chieng Jen, and Ali Biju on changing the JKKK name to the Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK).
The federal government agreed to give its consent and thus it would not change the JKKK to the MPKK.
Uggah added the federal government at the same time decided to reduce the allowance of the JKKK to RM500.00, which has been remitting the allowance payment to the state government without fail.
According to him, subsequently the Sarawak government decided to top up with another 400 Ringgit to the allowance as formerly the Ketua Kaum had been receiving 900 Ringgit per person per month.
2. LE TOUR DE AGAIN IS INCLUDED IN THE TOURISM OF THE TOURISM
Le Tour De Sebauh cycling event will be included in the Bintulu tourism calendar to enhance the prestige of the tournament.
Minister of Utilities and Kemena assemblyman Dato Sri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom said the cycling event organized by the District Office was well received every time it was organized.
This year, 180 riders will take part in the 40-kilometer cycling event.
Dr. Stephen Rundi said the event directly promotes the Sebauh area as a tourist destination.
He explained, the organization of the program can also generate income for the local community involved in the tourism industry.
3. PAS: DAP DOES NOT REPRESENT SARAWAKIANS
DAP is not qualified to speak on behalf of Sarawakians, said Sarawak PAS Supporters Assembly Hall (DHPP) Chief Achau Mujah.
He questioned how DAP can represent the voice of multiracial Sarawakians as a majority of the people are Malays and Ibans.
In a statement, he said Sarawakians must know how to judge a matter clearly.
DAP which is supported by Pakatan Harapan, for a long time has tainted multiracial society by painting a bad perception towards racial harmony as well as good relations between races.
He added that rejecting DAP and PH should be the main priority of Sarawakians.
