Kota Kinabalu: Both Sabah Barisan Nasional and opposition leaders Tuesday questioned the current registration of “stateless people” at National Registration Department offices statewide that would enable them to obtain the green MyKad.

They feared that the document would end up not in the hands of “stateless” locals in the interior but to foreigners who may be armed with birth certs issued by hospitals in Sabah.

They said the Federal Government’s decision to issue the green MyKad should have been explained fully to the people before the NRD went ahead. ( The Daily Express )

Is this part of the so-called massive operation to flush out illegal immigrants which is costing the Government RM50 million? This is not flushing out but sucking in by those suckers in the Government!

I urge the people of Sabah especially the local political leaders of all parties to visit the National Registration Department offices statewide and see for yourself who are the people that are congesting the NRD office. You leaders must be blind, stupid, arrogant, selfish if you say that the majority queuing to inquire about the green card in the NRD offices are locals. Our local Sabahans must be exceptionally brilliant or have been magically transformed overnight so much so that they have now become tagalog/bisaya/ speaking citizens. One can see and hear them conversing at the NRD offices not in any local dialects but of foreign dialects.


With the exception of YB Donald Mojuntin, where are the other so-called leaders especially from UMNO? Their lips must be sealed by the central Government or by their position. Leaders like Datuk Pairin, Datuk Maximus Ongkili, Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, Datuk Yong TeckLee etc who at one time or another has been so vocal on this issue? Then again I can understand Datuk Yong TeckLee’s position at the moment and where he stands so I will excuse him in my bombarding of local leaders for now. BUT the rest? I don’t and can’t accept any excuses other then them going against the proposal of issuing the green card to foreigners who may be armed with birth certs issued by hospitals in Sabah. We the Sabah people have had enough of being fooled by you politicians!

As for the Umno leaders who have been very very silence regarding “Project I/Cs” and illegal immigrants as of todate…what can I say of you people! Naturally only a fool like Anakdesa would make noise as it does not benefit him having all these illegals around! But the voice of one Anakdesa will not make much impact, that I do understand but I’m fulfilling my obligations to my future generations and wouldn’t want them to think that their forefather didn’t do anything to make this world a better place for them.

What we don’t want is this exercise further aggravating the perception among the genuine Sabah populace that it is easier for illegals to obtain identity documents than for locals to do so,” he said.

No doubt about this, it is easier for the illegals to obtain I/Cs in Sabah compared to the locals. Maybe the locals are too poor to “buy” the documents from these NRD officers. Speaking about NRD officers, money and illegals, it bring back memory, the case of a few NRD officers caught selling I/Cs last year by the ACA. Todate these officers have not been charged and the case has been swept under the carpet once again by the authority. The Government or for that matter the AG, a Sabahan by virture, are condoning to treason. Tan Sri Gani Patail in not taking action on these traitors is in fact portraying himself a traitor to the Sabah people in particular and Malaysia in general. It is sad to have a Sabahan/Malaysian as this!

KOTA KINABALU, WED: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said today the government will ensure the rights of the locals are respected and safeguarded.

He also said that the root cause of citizenship mix-ups involving the locals should be identified and rectified.

The issue, however, should not be continuously discussed in the media as this would only benefit certain quarters which were out to exploit the issue for political gain, he said.

“In terms of the rights of the local people, there will be no compromise… if there are weaknesses or problems on the part of the National Registration Department (NRD), it should be rectified sooner rather than later,” ( NST )

Yeah..you are right Datuk CM. Sooner….but how soon? Another 30 years from now? Wait for more Project I/Cs? Ohhh…stop the nonsense talk…so much talk but no action! Don’t believe me? Wait and see lahhh…..we have gone through this kind of talk moons after moons. Nothing new!

“If the NRD or government has no satisfactory answer, I strongly urge Upko to seriously review its position in the BN because an identification document is a very important matter as it shows their sense of belonging.” Datuk Wilfred Bumburing Daily Express and Star

I’ve lost track on how many articles I’ve written in the Daily Express Forum regarding the issuance of fake Malaysian I/C to foreigners. This issue has been a thorn in the flesh for every Malaysian Sabahan for almost 3 decade. The leaders of some political parties have repeatedly voiced their displeasure regarding this issue but unfortunately their concerned falls on deaf ears of the federal government. To make matter worst which hurt the feelings of the people in Sabah, some clowns from the cabinet got the guts to make statements such as  “..the PATI does not pose any problems to Sabah people” and “…there is no such thing as Project I/C”.

I can vividly remember so clearly that while I was once posted to a bank branch in Tenom a few years back, I came across a foreigner with a passport who came to open an account but I rejected it due to some technicality in the document. The very next day, this very same man came again to open an account but this time with a Malaysian I/C! I sarcastically asked him whether the I/C was acquired through the Project I/C. Surprisingly he admitted without any sense of fear. (Did I approve the application..NO!)

So each time when some leaders from the central government made comments such as the above, my first reaction would be “F**k you all”. It’s not that I like to use the word F**k on leaders but after 3 decade of voicing out our concern, they do nothing but keep hurting the people with their remarks.

Coming back to the statement by Datuk Wilfred Bumburing, as a anakdesa of Sabah, I fully support that UPKO should take a concrete steps and action to overcome this problem once and for all. He rightfully and I wholeheartedly agree when he said that “…I strongly urge Upko to seriously review its position in the BN..”. Not that I being an anti-government but we need to be heard. If the present government do not  care nor listen to the plight of the people regarding the Project I/C, why then do we need to carry on supporting them. May as well get a new government and cross our fingers that they will look and resolve the matter. If they too do not act on it as what the present government is doing then show them the exit door!

Now the question arise when Datuk Wilfred Bumburing said “….who believes that a Royal Commission of Inquiry should be set up to investigate NRD’s alleged issuance of ICs to foreigners.”  when YB Lim Kiat Siang  put up a motion for a RCI to be set up to solve the issue, where were all the UPKO’s representatives?
