Are Sabahans just followers?

Since independence, has Sabah been accorded the equal PARTNERSHIP in Malaysia? Previous Sabah leaders could not be blamed on the power-play by the Malayans becos we (Sabahans) were less 'educated' or duped by "promises" of benefits to the local populace.

Will the Sabah people realise that until now, we were been short changed in all aspects!

Lets us take a look at...the oil revenue $$$...being sucked to build the once tallest building in the world - Petronas Twin Towers...Money from Oil! Taxes from various forms, the imbalances of food prices, transportation from 0 to 10 ...all in favour of the Feds.

Sapp cannot do much without the wholehearted perseverance of the people of Sabah...to force a CHANGE! A CHANGE to all of what we people of Sabah deserved!


  1. Rata-rata rakyat Malaysia di Sabah sudah mempunyai pendirian tersendiri terutamanya darisegi ketidakpuasan dan ketidakadilan Kerajaan Persekutuan melayan negeri dibawah bayu.
    Gelombang pertama yang dihasilkan oleh SAPP merupakan pembuka kepada apa yang terpaku dalam fikiran dan hati rakyat. Warga Sabah masih menunggu gelombang seterusnya bagi membuka langkah yang lebih jauh.
    Mungkin suatu hari nanti Kerajaan Persekutuan akan memberi perhatian yang sewajarnya dengan memenuhi tuntutan rakyat Sabah terhadap 8 perkara yang disuarakan oleh SAPP dalam apa sahaja bentuk. Sehingga hari itu, SAPP masih lagi penting untuk memainkan peranan sebagai pembangkang yang berkesan bak kata pepatah "check & balance".


  2. Kami menghargai sumbangan Kerajaan tetapi kami lebih kenang pengorbanan SAPP!

    Topinai PBS!

  3. Sabahan cannot afford to play into the hand of BN's of divide-and-rule. The same is true for Sarawakian. The 20% oil royalty can only be an unrealizable dream if BN remains in power in both Sabahan and Sarawakian.

  4. Selagi PTI yang sudah diwarga negarakan oleh UMNO dan para sekutunya termasuklah JOMOSAMA, maka impian orang orang tulin SABAHAN tidak akan menjadi kenyataan. Apa lagi para pemimpin politik lebih mengutamakan Poket.

  5. Are Sabahans just followers?Yes.

    Sabahans were hoodwink far too long,the unfortunate thing was Sabahans were naive into believing that their leaders were fighting for the rights of the people.In reality,the leaders were fighting for their own selfish cause.

    Had Sabahans woken up and said enough is enough,Musa Aman and his gang of bandits would have been History.Today in coffee shops,5 star hotels,offices,golf courses and even in public toilets,people are talking about the high handed arrogance of UMNO-BN.My question is,what happen on March 8th?

    Having said that,it is the hope of the future generation,that Sabahans have rejuvenated.Politicians come and go,none of them are indispensable,but the voice of the people will grow louder by the day.

    Let us not be hoodwink by these UMNO-BN bandits anymore,but have a resurgent mindset that change is inevitable.


  7. Yes,Sabahans are followers. Tun mustapha acted as a follower,he had everything. When he changed his mind,he was in trouble. PBS was not the follower,so Sabahans increase to more than two million,but PBS is more than a follower now. Before last general election Sabahans only had the chance to be the follows or not. After the last general election,the Sabahans only have the chance to follow "BN" or "PR". In the future,Sabahans may be only have the chance to follow "Malaysia" or other "country"(if the country is strong). Somethings are good for Sabahans,but Sabahans have to know "What and When"they can do or just follow.

  8. Most Sabahans are followers except SAPP who dares to DEFY and SPEAK-UP for the People of Sabah. Keep it up SAPP! The People of Sabah are strongly behind your struggle!

  9. If most of you think that Sabahan are basically followers, then SAPP's struggle for the 8 points has a chance this coming election. Last general election in Mar 08, Sabahan didn't know the wind of change was happening in W.Msia. Now they know it, the next round, Sabahan will follow the wind of change.

    HURRAY !
    YES WE CAN !

  10. Can the Sabah people stand up to make a change?

    Umno had manipulated the political situation in Sabah but increasing the PTI via issuing them ICs or Mykads.

    Umno had already set in its deep roots in Sabah controlling the economy here..A chinese will say "if you want to get projects, look for the Umno YB 30 percent"

  11. Happy New Year to all SAPP loyal members! But before that... please have someone from SAPP dispel the notion that YTL somehow was involved previously in Project I.C. Someone?? Maybe from SAPP higher ups...?

    Who say YTL involved in Project IC. This is ridiculous! A blatant lie! The accuser must be crazy...or he may be poking fun..unbelievable!

    Yes, I agree that SAPP should counter all these lies about YTL spread in the internet. His enemies always bring up IC in Pulau Gaya and SAS issues. I have tried to counter in Sabah Forum but one or two voices may be too soft to be heard by the general readers. Don't underestimate the power of internet. I believe the wind of change in W.Msia was also partly because of internet.
    The US and Australian politicians have also admitted that internet plays an important role.

  13. Org sabah selalu aramaiti... moginum moginum....... dah mabok titun.... lapas tu bangun aramaiti lagi..... lapas tu mabok.... lapas titun... titun........

  14. Mr. Anon (Jan 7 - 10:55 AM),
    Org sabah selalu aramaiti... moginum moginum....... dah mabok titun.... lapas tu bangun aramaiti lagi..... lapas tu mabok.... lapas titun... titun........

    Dorang tu dari komposisi ahli politik dari Parti seperti berikut:
    PBS = 48%%
    PBRS = 33%
    UPKO = 16%
    SAPP = 2%
    (UMNO gue tak brani komen sebab lebih ramai tapi sensitif kalau nak cakap. Nanti kena tahan ISA tapi kerana menjaga keselamatan saya. Hehe...)

  15. SAPP is almost the same as early stage of PBS. I agree that PBS and SAPP try to do more for Sabahans. Mr. YTL was a top leader in PBS, and the PBS was in power but PBS was not able to do so much for Sabahans. SAPP is not a member of PR,some people do not know SAPP want to fight BN or PR. No only UMNO has YB 30%,other local party also has YB 30%+. No all the UMNO members in Sabah are ??!!$$,some people can not do what they wish to do,time will prove them.


  17. Itu PBS dulu macam harimau tapi skrg macam tikus. Kuat saja jilat tahi satan umno sebab duit haram matawang malaysia. Bila KDM jadi minority di sabah, inilah kebodohan pemimpin KDM dari PBS dan PBRS masih mabuk dgn satan umno.

    Bila orang sabah akan bangun dari mabuk?

  18. It is a mistake of our previous leaders. They tend kowtaw to the Federal leaders for their personal benefits. As a rakyat, we have no choice, we have to follow whoever been elected. But now, the rakyat have waken up. We will vote out the corrupted BN. Time to change.

  19. From MT
    Q: We are next?

    Will the Kuala Terengganu electorate vote for change?

    Will the Terengganu Muslim constituents, who form 88% of the Kuala Terengganu electorate, prove to have the same moral strength as their Kelantan brothers by rejecting the decadent values of UMNO/BN?

    Kim Quek

    In the most daring act to bribe the electorate of Kuala Terengganu (K.T.) to date, Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak dished out 583 government contracts in a “lucky draw” fashion to each and every Class F contractor present at the Wisma Darul Iman in Kuala Terengganu on January 10, the fifth day of the Kuala Terengganu by-election campaign.

    These contracts, valued between RM 30,000 to RM 200,000 each, which were claimed to be for infrastructure works in the local township, were distributed in random by having the contractor to come on stage to click on the computer. And, upon pressing the button, a contract would be awarded to the contractor, details of which -- nature of works and contract price -- would instantly appear in a big screen in the hall. Thus the contractor would walk home with his “prize”, a contract with a pre-determined price, with no questions asked on his track record or suitability for the works assigned.

    Najib Razak, who launched these innovative awards, proudly claimed this as “a world record”, saying that “in this lucky draw, everyone wins. Everyone gets a contract.” He further added that if Barisan Nasional wins in the coming Kuala Terengganu by-election, there would be more and bigger such contracts, so that the Class F contractors (confined to Malays, for small contracts) would “continue to make money and the country’s economy would continue to grow”.

    While Najib may be entitled to claim he has scored “the world’s first” for having satisfied every one of the hundreds of contractors present, few can share his pride over such bizarre method of disposing government infrastructure projects.

    For a start, contracts for infrastructure works are usually awarded gradually over a period of time, as and when the needs for such works arise, as determined and initiated by the engineers and the local authorities. These contracts are never awarded in a torrent of hundreds within a single day any where in the world. Granted that this may be part of the stimulus package announced earlier to counter current economic hardship. But there is no possible justification to cram such a staggering number projects in one go, especially when these are confined in a small township like Kuala Terengganu. Needless to say, massive wastages and redundancies will be the inevitable consequences.

    Then, what about the track records and skill compatibility of the contractors with respect to the projects at hand? Without proper interview and scrutiny of the awardees, how can the government be certain that the projects are awarded to the right contractors?

    Next, there is the question of price. Without tenders or negotiation, how can the government ensure fair pricing? In fact, over-generous pricing is expected, or else Najib would not have said: “I see everyone present here is jubilant and clapping his hands, everyone has got a government contract, how can they be not grateful to the government and not strongly support Barisan Nasional?” (Sin Chew, Jan 11)

    It is clear that this “lucky draw” award of contracts is an irresponsible act of public squandering aimed at inducing voters to support BN. For this move, BN was promptly condemned by the National Institute of Electoral Integrity as abusing government machinery to dish out financial benefits during election campaign.

    Deplorable as the act is, this is but one of an endless series of similar monetary inducement amounting to tens of millions of ringgit in the form of cash payments and allocations handed out by BN in the Kuala Terengganu constituency since the run-up to polling which will be held on January 17.

    In fact, on the same day (Jan 10) as Najib handed out the “lucky draw”, he also handed out RM 8 million to 20 religious schools, which are mainly located in Terengganu state.

    Recognising the minority 8,787 Chinese votes (11% of total) as pivotal in this election, the Chinese community has been bombarded almost daily with allocations and cash payments totaling no less than RM 12 million, such as:
    RM 3.3 million for construction of a new community hall.
    RM 2.8 million for furbishing a completed hall in a Chinese school.
    RM 3 million for 10 Chinese schools
    RM 2.7 million cash distribution to 9,000 Chinese for the coming Chinese New year (this annual payment was brought forward to reap the goodwill of Chinese electorate for the coming poll).
    Miscellaneous payments to temples, guilds and other communal bodies.

    All these financial bonanzas, handed out within the few days since nominations on January 5, are clearly intended to induce voters to vote in favour of the BN candidate, and therefore constitute “bribery” as defined in paragraph 10 of the Election Offences Act 1954, for which the culprits are punishable as prescribed in paragraph 11 of the same Act. Regrettably, the election commission under the new chairman Abdul Aziz Yusof, who vowed to ensure clean and fair election, has remained silent over these BN offences. Neither has the newly formed Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), which prides itself as a replica of the famed Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) of Hong Kong, appears to have been stirred by such glaring corrupt practices.

    Such monetary assault on the electorate, combined with the daily brainwashing by BN’s propaganda machinery, also known as the mainstream media (local newspapers and TV channels), has once again made a complete mockery of our election as cornerstone of a democratic system of government.

    With all the institutions tasked to uphold the rule of law either unwilling or incapable of fulfilling their constitutional roles, it is now left to the 80,000 electorate of Kuala Terengganu to play as guardians to uphold justice and democracy by disciplining the wayward ruling party with a negative vote.

    In this connection, it is heartening to take note of how the neighbouring Kelantan state has valiantly fought off similar corrupt assault by UMNO/BN for the past two decades. Under the corruption-free administration of PAS, the people of Kelantan, who are almost completely Malay-Muslims, have proven themselves to be people of high moral fibre as they have successfully overcome the persistent coercion and temptation presented by the UMNO/BN federal government through abuse of federal authority and improper monetary inducement. No doubt, their devotion to Islam, which abhors corruption as a grave sin, must have been an important factor that contributes to their moral courage.

    Will the Terengganu Muslim constituents, who form 88% of the Kuala Terengganu electorate, prove to have the same moral strength as their Kelantan brothers by rejecting the decadent values of UMNO/BN?

    And will the minority Chinese constituents gaze beyond the immediate monetary gains to vote for change -- a change that would mean the rejection of a defunct political power and one step closer to turning a new leaf for the nation?

    Coming at a time of power transition following the political tsunami of the 8 March 2008 elections, the outcome of this Kuala Terengganu by-election will have significant impact on the future direction of country’s political development. It is therefore earnestly hoped that the people of Kuala Terengganu will rise to the occasion to make the right choice for the nation.

  20. Israeli occupation of their territory is an issue with
    the Palestinians while for Tel Aviv the issue is
    security. Hamas claims that Tel Aviv is blockading
    Gaza and hence the rocket attacks. Without the
    security blockades, Hamaz will turn Gaza into a
    terrorist state directed by Iran, Syria and Hezbollah.

    In fact, Israeli occupation is a non-issue. The
    continued presence of US troops in Japan, South Korea
    and Germany for the last 60 years is a case in point.
    If Palestine wants to be an equal partner of Israel,
    it should work with Tel Aviv towards a multilateral
    security umbrella covering Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt
    as well. Instead, they are firing rockets into Israel
    and thereby demonstrating that they are not fit for
    statehood and independence.

    The only unresolved issues between the Palestinians
    and Israel is the status of east Jerusalem, the return
    of refugees to Israel and the final status borders
    between Palestine and Israel. Meanwhile, the
    Palestinians are free to conduct their own affairs in
    the West Bank and Gaza without any interference from
    Tel Aviv but they don't seem headed in that direction
    and instead are playing footsie with Iran and
    Hezbollah on the issue of terrorism.

    Even if east Jerusalem and the return of the refugees
    have to be mothballed, the only issue that remains
    unresolved is the status of the final borders. Even
    here, there are no great disagreements, give or take a
    few kilometres here and there along the border. The
    settlements on occupied territory are not a stumbling
    block and most of them would have to either accept
    Palestinian authority or evacuate themselves if they
    are not placed under Israeli authority. Land taken for
    the settlements which would come under Israeli
    authority would be compensated with Israeli land
    elsewhere along the border. Finally, there's always
    the courts to resort to.

    Israel and Palestine are not the only nations on earth
    with border disputes. But life goes on.

    In this context, it must be noted that most of the
    comments by those stoking the fires in the region and
    pouring oil on the Palestine-Israel conflict is just
    so much water under the bridge. Iran's pledge to wipe
    Israel off the map of the world is a case in point.
    It's no point revisiting the past as events have moved
    on since then. We can't turn the clock back but
    racists stand in the way and still dream of driving
    the Jews into the sea when Israel could turn out to be
    a real blessing for the entire Middle-East and herald
    the dawn of a new civilisation in the region to
    challenge the West.

    Malaysia should stop its foolishness on the
    Israel-Palestine issue. Why waste the valuable time of
    Parliament discussing the issue? The Malaysian
    Parliament is not the right forum for the debate as
    the AG himself advised the Penang Government when it
    wanted to have a smilar debate in the Penang state
    assembly. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was right in
    castigating the BN Government's hypocrisy when it is
    seizing Dayak land in Sarawak under all sorts of
    pretexts. Charity begins at home. The Federal
    Government should clean up its own backyard as advised
    by Anwar Ibrahim.

    Malaysia's foolishness, trumpeted worldwide, on the
    continuing and needless Palestine-Israel tragedy is
    beng compounded by the even greater foolishness of
    former prime minister Mahathir who seems to have gone
    berserk on the issue and lost all credibility. The
    only people who support him on the issue are the
    mamaks at the teh tarik stalls and mamak restaurants.
    These people have always been quick to capitalise on
    their version of "Islam" to "endear" themselves to the
    Malays for the sole purpose of exploiting them when
    not sexually enslaving them to produce even more
    half-castes like Mahathir with warped views and a
    twisted vision of the world

  21. Opposition cannot think, says Max (DR MAD)
    This snobbish running dog minister thinks he is smart. I read the DE news today and felt that the arrogant, sarcasm, spiteful minister is a actually a scared mouse trying to please his boss.

    What he doesn't understand is the public also need to know the real situation as questioned by SApp youth leader.

  22. Who is this PBS Moyog chief, John Masabal alias sambal?

    Does he represent the state government? running dogs on the loose...
