Don’t lose all like Sabah, warns Kitingan

Sabah is in a bad situation and struggling against Umno dominance, Bingkor assemblyman Jeffrey Kitingan tells Sarawakians.

KUCHING: Against wildfire rumours that Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud will be stepping down next month,  Sabah’s Bingkor assemblyman Jeffrey Kitingan has warned Sarawakians to be wary of Umno.

Recalling the ousting of then strong  Party Bersatu Sabah (PBS) in 1994 resulting in the entry of Umno, Kitingan said: “People of Sarawak must learn from mistakes made by Sabah.

“Sabah is now fully controlled by the federal government that is controlled by Umno.

“Don’t gamble with the future of this country by allowing the entry of Umno.”

He admitted that Sabah was in a very bad situation.

“Everything is dominated by the federal government, including immigration and illegal immigrants. Sabah people have no control any more, ” he said when met here.

He said if Sarawak allows Umno in, then the state and its people will lose everything.

“If Sarawak makes room for Umno to get a foothold in this country (Sarawak) believe me, they will control everything that is here including the wealth of the earth here.

“If this happens it will be a sad day,” he said.

Kitingan further cautioned that Umno will not stop trying to come into and takeover Sarawak.

“I’m sure Umno will never stop working to take the opportunity to realize their intentions. They want Sarawak” he said.

He urged the state and local political parties to be strong and defending against any party or coalition wanting to ‘colonise and takeover’ Sarawak.

“The state and local political parties in the state should push them to be more powerful to break the Umno efforts and this includes Pakatan Rakyat.

“To me  Umno and PR  (Pakatan) are not much different,” Kitingan said.
