KAPIT: Sarawakians are smart enough to know what is real or the otherwise on information that are posted in the social media, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said.
He said, nowadays there were certain quarters who purposely spread lies and inaccurate information just to discredit the good works of the State government.
Speaking at a working visit to the Ng. Mujung bridge 35 km from here, he said, for example, certain people said that Kapit was lacking in infrastructure development.
In contrast, Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri James Jemut Masing and his team had done a lot for the people such as the road to Ng. Mujong, Tunoh up to the Baleh Hydroelectric dam site, he said.
As such, the people were wise enough to differentiate between factual and fake information, he added.
On the Baleh dam, he explained that the dam would provide not only provide hydroelectric but also solar farm and hydrogen.
This was the type of renewable energy that the state was focusing on, he added.
Abang Johari also said, as a caring government, the Sarawak Government will look into upgrading the native court to enhance its efficiency to deal with matters affecting the Bumiputera community such as on native land.
“Native laws would be strengthened to better serve the community and syllabus on the native court could be introduced in the local university to enable the younger people to learn about local laws,” he said.
