There's More Than One Sarawakian Traitor

At least one Sarawakian believes that the people of Sarawak and Sabah should be happy with their lot even though they have been treated unequally and unfairly by Putrajaya. Maybe he has got to earn his keep. He is, after all, the Deputy Home Minister.

Wan Junaidi Jaafar (left) had on November 24, 2013 reportedly said it was ‘treason and seditious’ to dispute the legitimacy of Malaysia. He had insisted that the 1963 Malaysia Agreement should not be challenged.

The “Sarawak traitor” (a label given to Wan Junaidi by enraged Sarawak netizens) is obviously a brain-dead fella who is out of touch with his home state. Certainly, those in East Malaysia have the fundamental right to question and ask for a review of the referred Malaysia Agreement and that it cannot be considered as seditious.

In fact, Sarawak DAP’s Chong Chieng Jen had pushed forward a motion at the State Legislative Assembly to discuss the 18/20 points but it was denied. Even in the current parliament sitting, Sabah PKR MP Darrel Leiking had also applied for a similar motion but this too was rejected. This was in spite of the fact that there are 45 MPs from Sarawak and Sabah. If you ask me, these 45 BN parliamentarians who maintained stoic silence are the real traitors!

Is it any wonder these two Malaysian states are still under-developed? Just venture out of the cities and you will experience the neglect of 50-plus years of being part of Malaysia!

On Saturday, I went to D-Villa Residence in KL’s Jalan Ampang to deliver a CC speech #7 titled “The Amazons”. It was a speech that paid tribute to women. This was another small meeting but at least the few members who were there were in high spirits. BTW, I was voted Best Assignment Speaker. This meeting scored a 4.5 over 10.
