Daily Express Sabah

CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN

Who can you believe?
I am finally back in Sabah, like any concerned citizen, is determined to exercise my right as Malaysian. I had been reading our mainstream media and also malaysiakini to get a balanced view of our country.
It was reported that we are possibly going to waste about Rm2.4 millions on 48,000 bottles of the ink. On landing in Kota Kinabalu, I pick up a copy of the popular local media, Daily Express, what do you know, the cost had been downplayed to waste only Rm 1 million. Not unexpected, as you are in the poorest state in Malaysia, just can’t report that much had been wasted. For those who had no choice but can only follow Sabah local media, why not go to website malaysiakini for a balanced view, it is free access until the 10th of march.

It had also reported that there is wide spread flooding in the vicinity of the state capital, authority said, it was an act of nature, they can’t be blamed. Of course, not mentioned, is their foresight in these flood prone areas. It is not the first time such areas had been inundated and it is a timely reminder to Sabahans.







Talking about our KDM community, our present local leaders said, they had such excellent working relations with our Pen M’sia counterpart. Media there hardly touch on this community, needless to say, what it means to those people there. The NRD hardly know what it is, classify the KDMs with such community as hokkien, Cantonese, malay, Indians by looks, such term as sino-kadazan is not in their vocabulary, otherwise, at best under others. These people are losing their proud heritage, will they survive into the next generation?


If we had not been systematically marginalised, WHAT ELSE???
