How many people are
By Amde Sidik
Kinabalu, March 9, 2011: "I find it weird of the short mindedness of
UMNO leaders. To begin with, two days ago the Deputy Liaison Chief
Tawau Mohammad Jeffery Rosman lodged a police report alleging Tan Sri
Simon Sipaun's statement made during the inter-dialogue organized by
UBF was misleading and seditious, wonder who are the people or group of
people being misled by Sipaun's statement?
Another report came from Keningau by Sabah UMNO Youth Azman Ruslan
saying that Tan Sri Simon Sipaun's remark was a blatant disrespect to
the founding fathers of Malaysia, which I find this budding politician
has closed half of his brain when reading material of this kind. Why
doesn't he read more materials, which now available in public domain,
long even before Tan Sri gave his remarks. I too want to see the
counter argument by UMNO Youth.
Tan Sri Simon Sipaun has given the public a comparison between
political, and economical atmosphere today and the passed 47 years ago.
He has given us the sense of what good governance is all about. That
would be open to public to make the judgment. I suppose only a handful
of UMNO members feel misled, the two mentioned did it out to score
political mileage and to get a little bit of attention.
Sabah political leaders should train their mind to think, analyze and
criticize. Perhaps the two guys surely are far too young to understand
the complexities of Sabah politics and they failed to grip the Sabah
What actually the leaders doing is echoing like those politics found in
Peninsula. I must say not all the kind of political practice in
Peninsula is good enough for Sabah. It took nearly 47 years for PM
Najib to come up with the idea of 1Malaysia. Just tell me why?
It took nine days for the authority to reply what must be of more
pressing answers, the 'Sultan Sulu' coronation right at the very nose
of UMNO leaders in Kampong Likas. While noticing Tan Sri Sipaun
misleading statement only took a couple of hours.
I'm equally stunned, seeing the absence of response from my fellow
Kadazan BN leaders, are all in agreement with UMNO?
For my Muslim leaders in the state of Sabah, since both of them are
Muslim could anyone of them help me check my queries about MUIS and
Baitul Mal issue I brought up which appeared on 19/02/2011?"
