KKIA run-way extension and Tanjong Aru flyover may face further delay on completion

The Kota Kinabalu International Airport run-way extension project and the Tanjong Aru flyover projects may face another set back on the eventual completion date.





To date, work on both the job sites are at total stand still with only a handful of workers on site. This was observed by the Sabah DAP team led by the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu during a site visit to the job sites. Edward Ewol Mujie, Jeffrey Kumin and John

Lee was among the inspection team.



This was a follow-up inspection after receiving public complaint pointing out that the two mega projects showing sign of little work progress and near stop work. There were no work progress over the passed one year and all heavy machineries are on ideal and parked on site.



Dr. Hiew asked the Ass. Minister of Transport Datuk Rahim Bakri during the question and answer time on the 14th of December in Parliament concerning the near stop work on the KKIA airport run-way extension project. The answer given was merely because of some technical details and land matters that are holding up the work progress. That was an unsatisfactory reply, because there is no reason that the work can be held up for such a long time and faced near “Zero Progress”.



The two projects should be in full swing now and should not be on such a slow rate of progress. At this rate, the contractor will never meet the designated date of completion.



The two contracts are being awarded to the same contractor. The people want to know whether the contractor is at fault, and if it is so, what action the government is going to take to ensure them to execute the job according to the contract terms and conditions. The delay on these two projects had caused much concern and inconveniences to the general public.



It is of public interest that the government should answer all these doubts and questions, and tell the truth about what is really happening to the projects. We can not just keep on waiting for the job to be completed. It is the people’s money that the government spending, therefore we have the right to know the reason.



Hopefully this will not turn out to be as “Another project by the BN government”!

亚庇国际机场跑道扩建工程和丹容亚路天桥工程将会拖延完工





亚庇国际机场跑道扩建工程和丹容亚路天桥工程的完工日期将会拖延。



迄今为止,该两处的工程仍然处于半停工的状况,并且在现场只有少数的工人开工。 沙巴民主行动党州主席兼亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士及其团队成员爱德华慕吉,杰菲利古明和李金星等人前往实地视察。



邱国会议员接到市民投诉后前往进行视察,他指出这两项大型工程的工作进展缓慢,几乎有接近停工的迹象。 在过去的一年来,该工程的工作进度缓慢停滞,所有的重型机械都停泊在现场没有操作。



邱博士在十二月十四日国会问答环节中向副交通部长拿督阿都拉欣巴克里提询关于亚庇国际机场跑道扩建工程处于半停工的问题。 副部长的回答说,这是因为一些技术细节上和土地上的问题,导致该项工程的进度缓慢。 这是不能令人满意的回答,因为该项工程不可能拖延这么长的时间,几乎是接近毫无进度的局面。



该两项目工程应该需要立即全面地展开施工,而不应有任何拖延。 如果按照如此的施工进度,承包商将不可能在指定日期内完工。



该两项工程都是批给同一个承包商。 人民想知道是否该承包商本身有问题,如果是这样,政府将会要采取什么行动以确保他们会根据合约的条款,认真的去执行及完成他们所承包的工作。 这两项工程的拖延已引起广泛人民的关注及造成许多的不便。



政府应该回答人民的疑问,并有责任告诉我们该两项工程处于半停工的真相。 我们不能继续的等待他们去完成该项工程。 政府所用得钱是人民的钱,因此我们有权利知道其真正原因。



希望这不是‘另一个国阵政府工程’!

Sinsuran Upgrading work owners’ comment


The meeting arranged by the shops owners and operators of the shops in Sinsuran Complex on the 28th December with the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu, Edward Ewol Mojie, and John Lee Kim Seng from the Sabah DAP was conducted with fruitful result.




The people there welcome the assistance granted by the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament office to help to resolve the matter involving the upgrading work in the Sinsuran complex, which involving 14 blocks of shops. There are matters needed to be ironed out and agreed upon by the people here before any upgrading work can be carried by DBKK and its intended developer. These involved the legal aspects, rights, interest, local government by-laws and the terms and condition of the Subsidiary tittles which includes the setting up of the management corporation (MC). The KK MP explained the conditions of the Land (subsidiary tittle) Enactment 1972 and made the necessary interpretation to enlighten the owners who were present.



The owners also brought along a letter from DBKK to inform them about a meeting which is scheduled to be on the 14th of January 2010 in Le-Maridian Hotel in Sinsuran to form up the MC for the owners in Sinsuran. The owners then discussed further and resolved that they will form their own 14 MCs for each of the blocks themselves with the consent of the owners and operators of each block. The representatives of the 14 MCs will only then hold discussion with DBKK to resolve matters pertaining to the Sinsuran Complex upgrading work, and to come up with a final decision.



They have requested the KK MP to assist to inform the DBKK on their behalf of their decision and to postpone the scheduled meeting on the 14th of January, 2010 until a suitable date agreed by all.



Meanwhile, Dr. Hiew hoped DBKK should view this proposal with upmost care on the situation in Sinuaran Complex due to its unique and complexity. This will definitely involve many legal procedures, modification of rules, and most important the proposal must be acceptable by each and every one, not 99% but 100%.



The Sinuaran Complex had its own MC before as highlighted by one of the owner, and failed to perform and execute it duties. This is due to the difficulties of having the unity and the full corporation of the people there. There were some other MCs formed later to that, but the same result appeared, “die of natural cause”!

业主批评有关新苏兰提升计划



新苏兰商店业主于二零零九年十二月二十八日安排与亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士,及沙巴民主行动党领袖爱德华慕吉,李金星会面,讨论有关新苏兰商店提升计划的问题,后达至协议。



该处的店主及业主很感激亚庇国会议员办事处给予援助及协调有关市政厅所提议的14排店铺提升计划所面对的问题。 亚庇市政厅和其承包商要进行改善及提升工程之前,必须要经过店主们的同意。 因为这些将会涉及法律问题,店主的权益,地方政府的法律条规及附属地契的问题,其中还包括管理委员会(MC)的成立。 亚庇国会议员邱博士向他们解释有关1972年附属地契法令,并且给予详细的解释于出席该会议的店主们说明有关该项法令的条例。



新苏兰业主们出示亚庇市政厅通知他们于2010年1月14日在Le-Maridian酒店开会,讨论成立新苏兰业主的管理委员会。 由他们14排的业主和店主担任委员。 其代表们将可以和亚庇市政厅讨论有关新苏兰商店的提升工程,并作出最终决定。



他们已要求邱博士代他们通知亚庇市政厅有关他们在当天的决定,也就是他们自己要成立自身的管理委员会,而要求延迟2010年1月14日的会议,直到另行通知才进行该项与亚庇市政厅的会议。



在同时,邱博士希望亚庇市政厅应能够认真看待他们的建议,由于新苏兰商店区的情况是比较独特和具有高难度。 这会涉及许多法律程序,规则的修改,最重要的是该建议必须得到每一个人的同意,并不是99%,而是100%的接受。



其中一位新苏兰业主告知邱博士说,其实他们之前已成立自己的管理层多次,但是没有履行其职责。 这是由于该处的业主和店主不能一致。 现在如成立了新的管理层,同样会面对如前的结果,“胎死腹中”!

Kota Kinabalu Traffic system needed long term Planing

Kota Kinabalu Traffic system needed long term Planing
Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament, Dr. Hiew King Cheu’s asked in Parliament recently on the future measures taken to improve the transport system and the traffic jam situation in Kota Kinabalu City, and on the ‘rapid transit’ system, and how soon this can be implemented.





The reply came from Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, the Minister in the Prime Minister Department, he said the LPKP (Lembage Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdaganan) Negeri Sabah is working and taking action to improve the public transport system in Kota Kinabalu City. This is on the monthly agenda as far as LPKP is concerned. There are immediate measures being implemented to improve the transport system in KK. Some are as follows:-



(a) The launching of the City-Bus was made on the 1st June, 2009, with a cheap rate of 50 cent one way to any destination within KK City.

(b) The public transport system shall be guaranteed to upmost safety and comfort with quality administration for the benefits of the commuters. This will provide also a good image for the tourists who visit Sabah.

(c) To rearrange the bus routes in Kota Kinabalu so that all buses (except City Bus) are not allowed to operate in the City and waiting for passengers in the Wawasan bus terminal, and all these buses have to use the special lane provided at the end of the Wawasan bus terminal.

(d) All the Mini-bus services (van-type) which had changed to Bas Berhenti-henti are given until 31st of December 2012 to change to bigger bus of 25 passengers or above.

(e) The use of color code for different zone of service through Kota Kinabalu city limit:-

1) Zone North-Blue/white – from Tuaran town, Tamparuli, Telipok, Sepanggar, Menggatal, Inanam to Wawasan Bus Terminal, KK.

2) Zone South-Red/white - from Papar, Kinarut, Putatan, Petagas, Kapayan to

Wawasan Terminal,

3) Zone East – Purple/white – from Penampang, Luyang, Bukit Padang, Beverly Hill to Wawasan Terminal,

4) Zone City Centre – from UMS, Kingfisher Park, Likas, Tanjong Aru, Sembulan to Wawasan Terminal,KK.

(f) Training courses are being conducted to uplift the quality and ethnic of the bus operators

in the transport industries in order to reduce the accident rates on the roads.

(g) The use of uniform for the drivers of public transport vehicle to bring about a better

image and discipline.



All other proposal to provide a better public transport system is outside the jurisdiction of the LPKP Sabah.



Dr. Hiew said that it is more important to look at the town planning and the development master plan aspects and come up with a long term planning for the whole KK City. At the moment, we are merely looking at the minor aspect and not looking far enough to plan and implement a scheme that can solve the KK City traffic jam problem once for all.





From the reply given by the Minister Dato’ Nazri, we can see the answer given did not touch on ways to solve the KK traffic woes. Those mentioned are the little measures and can’t solve the problem. The people want a long term detailed master plan to be drawn up for a traffic jam free KK city.



In Kota Kinabalu, the traffic circulation planning is not in conjunction with the pace of the development, especially in the City centre. Many big buildings and complexes have been put up and we are still using the same old town road. There are more people coming into the city centre with more cars, but are there more new car parks, new roads and efficient rapid public transport system? We can see KK City will face even more serious traffic jam situation soon.



The BN government has to come up with a more positive solution, and not relaying on small temporary measures on the traffic problem in KK City, which is no good at all. The delay on implementing and approving the Kapayan KKIA South-Bus terminal is a very good example of the BN government’s administrative deficiency and incapability.



Dr. Hiew King Cheu, KK MP





亚庇交通系统需要妥善的长远计划



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士在国会中提出政府将采取什么措施,以改善亚庇交通系统和解决严重的交通堵塞问题,此外该些实施什么时候可以实行。



首相署部长拿督纳兹里回答说,沙巴州的陆路交通执照局(Lembage Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdaganan)正积极地采取行动以改善亚庇的公共交通系统。 该局每月的会议议程中都有提起该项问题。 目前当局已采取以下措施来改善亚庇的交通问题 :-



(一)于2009年6月1日启用城巴,以五十仙单程的廉价费用在城市内穿行。

(二)将确保公共交通系统的品质管理,为乘客提升安全度和舒适度。 这也将让游客们对沙巴留下良好的印象。

(三)将会重新安排亚庇市的巴士路线,使所有巴士(除了城巴)不能随便在城市驶行及在旺旺山巴士终站等待乘客,所有这些巴士将使用另外的巴士专用车道。

(四)所有的迷你巴士(小型巴士)转换为随意载客(Bas Berhenti-henti)的巴士,必须在2012年12月31日前更换其巴士以能够容纳25名乘客或以上。

(五)将在亚庇市不同的服务区,以不同车身颜色代表其行驶路线 :–

1)北区-蓝/白 - 从亚兰镇,丹波罗里,达里卜,士邦加,孟加达,下南南到旺旺山巴士终站。

2)南区-红/白 - 从吧巴,京那律,必打丹,必打卡士,甘拜园的旺旺山巴士终站,

3)东区-紫/白 - 从兵南邦,路阳,武吉巴当,比利华到旺旺山巴士终站,

4)城市中心区 - 从沙巴大学,翠鸟园,里卡士,丹容亚路,新布兰到旺旺山巴士终站

(六)将进行巴士司机培训课程以提升素质,以期减少马路的意外率。

(七)公共交通司机必须穿上制服以便有更好的形象和纪律。



其他的建议改良公共交通系统是在沙巴陆路交通局管辖范围之外。



邱博士说,重要的是要在城市策划和发展计划进行的方面着手,必须要有一个长远的全面规划。目前,我们只是着手处理一些小问题,并没有远见,良好的策划和实在的计划,来全面地解决所有城市交通拥堵问题。



从部长拿督纳兹里的回答中,我们可以看到政府没有正真如何解决亚庇市的交通问题。 他所提及的措施并没有解决到所面对问题。 人民希望有一个长远的总计划,并且详细制定解决交通堵塞。



在亚庇的交通系统并不能与发展同步,尤其是在市中心。许多大型建筑物和商场已建好及兴建中,我们仍然在使用同样的城市道路系统。 有更多的人驾车前往市中心,但是并没有更多的新停车场,新的道路和有效的快速交通传递系统。 我们将会看到亚庇市将面临更加严重的交通挤塞情况。



国阵政府应该更加积极的去寻求解决方案,而不是单靠轻微措施,完全没有良好措施。最好的例子就是甘拜园国际机场前面的南方巴士终站,如今不断拖延,迟迟不批。这项巴士终站的计划是解决亚庇市交通问题的主要方案。 这也显示出国阵政府行政缺乏效率和能力不足的一个很好的例子。

Parliament reply on Sabah roads and bridges allocation, Budget 2010



Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu debated recently in the Parliament budget debate on the Federal ministry of work budget allocation for the Sabah roads and bridges. The total allocation for Sabah is only RM 185,810,160.00 while compared to Sarawak RM 355,966,860.00 and even Labuan gets RM 1,838,200,560.00.




He asked the Minister of works on:-



(1) When will the stretch of road from Inanam to Menggatal, Km 9 to Km 15 be upgraded and

(2) Why the Asphalt surface (black top) for the Sepulut to Kalabakan road still no sign of starting work,

(3) Whether the Federal allocation for Sabah roads and bridges can be increase to at least another 50% in order to improve and upgrade the many roads and bridges in Sabah?



The reply from the Minister of works is as follows:-



The Ministry of work is aware of the condition of Jalan Tuaran from Km9 to Km15 Inanam to Menggatal as mentioned. Any how, based on the allocation allotted, there is no way to commence work on the stretch of road sooner. The Work Ministry will take note and try to commence work on the upgrading and resurfacing when fund is available in 2010.



For the surfacing work in the Sepulut – Kalabakan highway, the Ministry will apply the work to be carried out during the 10th Malaysia Plan, and this work is to be given top priority.



The Ministry of work will apply for additional allocation as requested by the KK MP on the item under Roads and Bridges during 2010.



Dr. Hiew views the answer given to his question as disappointing and this reflects that the Federal government is really neglecting the well being of the Sabahan and taking us for granted. The amount of ALLOCATION is already a clear indication of the “ill-treatment”. The BN government still talk about Sabah is their “fixed Deposit”, they are not worry about losing support from Sabah because they have almost 100% control over the Sabahan (as shown from the election result), where they have captured 24 out of 25 Parliament seats and 59 state seats out of 60. That is why they can ignore the Sabahan and give us the least budget allocation. Is this what they claimed as “1-Malaysia”? Rakyat di-dahulukan (the people first)?



The simple example is the only 6 Kilometer of Federal Highway from Inanam to Menggatal takes years to upgrade, and the people were given so many rounds of empty promises, and the latest now is another postponement until next year. The condition of the road surface and its many dangerous “U-turns” had been the cause of many deadly accidents. The people lost their life, what and who to blame?



Dr. Hiew and the DAP Infrastructure Bureau chief John Lee Kim Seng today inspected the bad “U-turn” in front of the stone quarry at KM 10 Jalan Tuaran, where frequent jam and long hours of queue up to 30 minutes during peak hours. The U-turn is really bad and dangerous, full of pot-holes and long trailers can not make the u-turn easily.



John Lee said the U-turn created in front the Hong Leong Bank further down is also another bad arrangement. The traffic police always picks this spot to issue summon to those taking illegal u-turn. The traffic police in stead should spent time to control the traffic flow at the KM 10 u-turn.



We, the Sabahan demands to be better treated as a partner in Malaysia and not to be given “petty money”, considering the contribution made by Sabah in the total National Revenue every year.

2010财政预算案,沙巴州联邦道路和桥梁的拨款



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士在国会辩论2010财政预算案中,他向部长提问有关沙巴州联邦道路和桥梁的拨款。沙巴州的总拨款只有马币一亿八千五百八十一万一百六十,比起沙捞越所得的拨款马币三亿五千五百九十六万六千八百六十,甚至纳闽得到的拨款马币十八亿三千八百二十万五百六十,沙巴所得的数目相差很多。



他询问工程部长有关 :-

(1)从下南南到孟家达,从9公里处到15公里的马路何时将会提升?

(2)为什么西布鲁(Sepulut)到加拉巴干(Kalabakan)的道路还没有开始铺沥青工作的迹象,

(3)是否沙巴联邦道路和桥梁的拨款可以增多50%,以积极改善和提升沙巴州许多道路和桥梁?



联邦工程部长回应说,该部门有关注到从下南南到孟加达9公里至15公里的马路。 无论如何若根据所分配到的拨款,是无法在近期内展开该段马路的提升工程。联邦工程部已经关注该段路,如果联邦政府能在2010年发出该项拨款,该部门将会立即展开提升和重铺路面的工程。



至于西布鲁(Sepulut)到加拉巴干(Kalabakan)的铺沥青工作,工程部将会在第10个马来西亚要求通过该沥青工程,而且该项工程必会优先处理。



工程部将根据亚庇国会议员邱博士的要求,在2010年的预算案中调动更多的拨款来进行沙巴州道路和桥梁的维修或兴建。



邱博士对于部长所给予的回答感到很失望,这反映了联邦政府真的忽略了沙巴人的福利和权益。 从拨款的数额可以很清楚看到沙巴州并没有给予很好的“待遇”。 国阵政府仍然在高谈阔论沙巴州是他们的‘定期存款’。 他们不需要担心因为沙巴州的人民给与他们100%的支持(如选举成绩所示),他们在25个国席位中到24个,及60州议席获得了59席,这就是为什么他们大胆的忽略沙巴,并且在预算中拨款给沙巴最少。 难道这是他们所谓的‘一个马来西亚’或‘以民为本’的宣传吗?讲一套做一套!



一个简单的例子就是只有6公里长从下南南到孟加达的联邦公路还需要很多年才能被提升,市民多次被给予空洞的承诺,而现在最新消息说维修马路工程要推到明年才可以进行。 该段路有许多危险的‘回转路’都是导致许多致命车祸事故的主因。 人民失去了宝贵生命,这到底是谁的错?



邱博士和民主行动党基本设施局主任李金星今天前往视察斗亚兰路10公里处,石山前面的U回转路,该处每天在繁忙的时间里,经常发生交通堵塞和大排长龙30分钟。 在该处掉头处是非常糟糕和危险,路面到处都是大洞,此外长型罗里是面对困难在该处掉头。



李氏说,在丰隆银行前面另一个U回转路也是不安全。 交警总是挑选这个地方发出传票给非法掉头的车主。 交警应该是花时间去控制10公里处的U回转路,以让交通顺畅和安全。



身为马来西亚的一分子,我们沙巴人要求得到联邦更好的看待,国阵政府必须要明白沙巴州每年都贡献许多给国家的总收入,但是所得的回馈却只有那么‘一点点’的拨款。

Sinsuran Upgrading proposal

The proposal to up grade the face look of the Sinsuran commercial complex due its outdated and run down appearance of the buildings as proposed by DBKK, came with much criticism, objection and disagreement form the properties owners here. There are many reasons that the people here do not agree with the proposal, especially on the issue of car parking spaces, Management Corporation and its fees, open spaces, lost of road, garbage collection, back lane, and business conflicts, roof covers etc..







The Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu being the people’s elected representative for Kota Kinabalu had stepped in to assist the people and coordinate the proposal for the upgrading work. The people’s view had been collected and forwarded to the DBKK and their intended developer for their study and perusal. There were several meetings been conducted in the MP’s office and various views from the people in Sinsuran had been forwarded for discussion.



Dr. Hiew views the whole project as proposed will not be able to work smoothly if the people in Sinsuran Complex feels that it is not to their advantage and benefits. So far, many had expressed their objection based on various reasons. Of course, DBKK and its intended developer can not force the issue, and make this people to accept. We should look at how and what is best for every one, just because these people are there first and they owned the properties.



Dr. Hiew, with Edward Ewol Mujie the Sabah DAP Local Government and Housing Bureau chief and the DAP state treasurer Fred Fung Kong Win were on site to understand more on the issues and the proposal last Sunday. The intended developer was present, and led by the person in charge of the project Mr. C.K.Wong and his staffs. Dr. Hiew and his team were being briefed by the developer on various aspects of the upgrading work.



After viewing the proposal and the potential difficulties that the project may encounter, Dr. Hiew suggested to the developer that he should review the up grading proposal. There will be more objections from the people there if the proposal is not to their favor. Hiew reminded the developer that he is dealing with the people and the people has every right to their livelihood.



The developer agreed to prepare a fresh proposal and design to accommodate various opinions of the people in the Sinsuran Complex.



At the mean while, the people in the Sinsuran Complex has requested the Kota Kinabalu MP Dr. Hiew to chair a meeting on the 28th of December, 2pm, in Sinsuran to discuss the matter further. They said they are not against any upgrading work but they would like to know what are they getting into and what is the final implication.

新苏兰提升的建议



由于新苏兰商店的建筑物陈旧,亚庇市政厅提出对该些商店的提升建议,该建议遭受该处店主的批评,反对和不同意。 在该处的人民不同意该建议是有许多原因,尤其是有关泊车位,管理层及其费用,空地的使用,道路的减少,垃圾的收集,后巷通道,以及生意竟争和遮阳棚等等问题..



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士身为亚庇人民代议士,需要协助人民协调该项建议中的提升计划。 他已经收集所有市民的看法和意见,提呈给亚庇市政厅,并且敦促当局负责人研究和审阅。 亚庇国会议员办事处已经和新苏兰的店主们及市民进行多次的讨论及面谈,并且交换各项意见。



邱博士提出该项提升计划将无法顺利的进行,万一新苏兰的店主们和市民认为对他们没有什么特优和好处。 到目前为止许多人表示据于各种原因坚持反对该项提升计划。 当然市政厅和其发展商是不能强行推动该项计划,强迫他们接受。 我们应研究如何及寻求一个妥善的解决方式,因为这些人都是该处的业主和店主。



上周日邱博士与沙巴民主行动党地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕杰,及民主行动党州财政冯光荣再次前往该处以了解更多有关问题和听取市民的意见。 负责该处提升计划的承包商的黄先生和其职员也在现场。 他们给于邱博士和他的团队有关提升的简报,包括如何改善和提升该处各个方面。



邱博士听取了该项提升的建议及该计划详情后说,该计划将会面对潜在的困难,他建议发展商应该谨慎的重新审核该项提升计划。 如果该项建议是有不利于民,他们将会有面对更多的反对。 邱氏提醒发展商,他将会面对人民的极烈反对或不认同。



该发展商同意重新拟定一份新的建议和计划书,以符合及容纳新苏兰店主们和市民的意见。



以期同时,新苏兰店主们和市民已要求亚庇国会议员邱博士在十二月二十八日下午两点前来主持一项研讨会以讨论此事。他们说他们并不是针对及反对任何有利的提升计划,他们想知道的是他们能够从中获得什么,及将来会面对什么影响。

Kingfisher Park traffic woes

Today, the Member of Parliament for Kota Kinabalu Dr. Hiew King Cheu visited and inspected the temporary access road linking from the Kingfisher Park to the Jalan Tuaran By-pass, through the DBKK sewerage oxidation ponds reserve, which is created to solve the Kingfisher Park traffic jam problem caused by the bottle neck at the narrow bridge over the river. Every day during the peak hour, there is a usual 40 minutes-wait to queue to get out of Kingfisher Park. This jam problem has existed for a long time, and coupled with the population in the area is growing at a very fast rate due to the completion of many housing estate. The schools here are also having a large student number.





After checking with the relevant authorities, the MP was made to understand that the temporary access to solve the jam is meant for light vehicles up to a maximum weight of 3-tonnes only. This road is converted from the existing service road within the sewerage oxidation ponds reserve. The work is nearing completion, and the contractor has yet to improve on the installation of security and safety fencing to the road side and the ponds, to avoid children from entering the pond area. There are also ‘crossed bars’ installed at both ends to stop heavy trucks from entering to use this temporary access road.



At the moment, the road is only opened for day time use only from 6am to 6pm, due to the installation of the street lights are not ready. The road will only be opened for full time use when the street lights are in place. This road hopefully can be ready and open for use when the schools reopen in January 2010.



Dr. Hiew said this road is meant to be used as a temporary road, but any how the 2nd bridge on the river to get in and out of Kingfisher Park must be constructed as soon as possible. The government should not delay any more on it.



Dr. Hiew King Cheu, KK MP

亚庇翠鸟园的严重的交通诸塞问题



今天亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士前往视察翠鸟园通往斗亚兰高速公路的临时马路。这是在亚庇市政厅污水处理池塘旁边的原有马路,该段路的兴建是为了解决翠鸟园瓶颈桥梁所导致交通拥堵的问题。 每一天在繁忙时间驾驶者必须排上约40分钟的长龙才能离开翠鸟园。 该诸塞问题已经存在了一段很长的时期,而且该地区的人口也快速增长,加上有许多住宅区的兴建。 此外这里也有学校和大批的学生。



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士询问有关部门,他被告知该段临时道路只可以给轻型的车辆使用,即是三吨以下的小罗里和汽车。 这项工程已接近完成,然而承包商还将要安装池塘及路边的安全围栏和篱笆,以避免儿童进入池塘内。 此外该段马路的两端也安装了‘横杆’以阻止重型货车驶入该临时马路。



目前,该段临时道路只是在早上6点至傍晚6点开放使用,这是由于该路灯还没被安装好。 因此必须要等到路灯安装好后才开放于晚上使用。 该段马路大约在明年二零一零年一月学校开学时可以正式启用。



邱博士说该段临时马路虽然能够暂时解决部分塞车的问题,但是翠鸟园的第二座大桥工程,当局必须尽快动工兴建。 政府不应该再拖延该项工程了。

Merry Christmas To All Sabahan , Sabah Malaysia



Peminpin Kemajuan Rakyat (PKR)

The Sabah DAP Local government and Housing Bureau chief Edward Ewol Mujie, and is was a retired senior civil servant who had served many years in the Sabah government, today disclosed that the newly appointed PKR of Luyang and Likas, Chin Teck Ming, and Chu Yuen Szang should report to the Member of Parliament Kota Kinabalu office and the offices of the State assemblyman for Api Api, Luyang and Likas.





Chin and Chu are both employed by the State government to serve as the People’s development officer (PKR) and they are a full time civil servant under the government pay-roll. Thus, they have a duty to serve under the jurisdiction of the people’s representatives (elected member), that is the MP and Adun in the area irrespective of the parties they belong to, this is because they are the people’s elected representatives. The ranking of their office puts the PKR under the peoples’ representatives.



The two PKR should not work as seen to be representing their party PBS. Once they have taken the oath and pledge to serve the people to their best in front of the Chief Minister of Sabah, they automatically become the people’s servants.



Edward reminds them that they should report to the Wakil Rakyats’ office for instruction to be given concerning the respective area. There is so much to do in the areas, and the YBs have other major duties and matters to attend to, therefore the small issues like checking on blocked drains, pot holes, garbage, fallen trees and cutting grass will be the job responsibility for the PKR, that is their job. The previous PKR in Luyang, Benny Quak did exactly that, he knows the responsibility of the job of a PKR, and he was always in close contact with the wakil rakyat and received instruction from them on various issues and complaints concerning the people in the areas.



Edwards also highlighted that the funding for some of the community development projects in the areas comes from the MP fund and the State assemblyman fund for development to be carried out in the areas. The YBs has the right to know where and how their allotted funds were spent, whether it is spent wisely or worthily or not.



Therefore, the two new PKR are reminded again to carry out their duties to their best ability and to serve their YBs according to the duty entrusted to them.

路阳及里卡士人民发展领袖人民(PKR)



沙巴州民主行动党地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉,同时他也是一名退休高级公务员,曾担任沙巴政府高职多年,他今天透露说新上任的路阳和里卡士人民发展领袖陈德明和朱远胜,他们应该要向亚庇国会议员,路阳和里卡士州议员等的办事处联系。



陈氏和朱氏既然受雇于州政府担任人民发展领袖(PKR),他们已接受政府的薪俸,那么他们应该是全职的公务员。 因此他们有责任为人民代议士(民选的议员)做事,不论是来自何政党的国会议员或州议员,他们必须全力以赴。 此外依照官职的排序,国会议员和州议员是排在人民发展领袖(PKR)之上。



新上任的人民发展领袖是不应该只代表他们自身的政党。 一旦在沙巴首席部长前宣誓就任,并承诺为市民服务时,他们自动成为人民的公仆,其职责是为人民服务,也就是服务于国州议员之下。



爱德华提醒他们应该要向国州议员的办事处请示,以表达他们能认清其职责。 各地区有许多事情要做,而议员们则有其他的更重要的事务要处理, 因此如检查诸塞的渠道,路面上的大洞,街边的垃圾,倒下的树木及剪草和其他民生的问题将是人民发展领袖的主要工作范围。 以前路阳区的人民发展领袖郭义海地确很认真地做到这一点。 他知道身为人民发展领袖的工作和责任,他与国州议员有着非常好的联系,同时他也向他们请示有关问题,并且协助他们协调该区的投诉。



爱德华兹还强调说,该两区所有发展计划的拨款是来自国州议员基金。 因此国州议员有权力知道该些拨款被用在何处,以及如何被分配,更重要的是该些拨款是否有好好的使用。



因此,他再次提醒新任的人民发展领袖,要好好地履行他们的义务及尽最大能力为民服务,以及进行国州议员所委托给他们的工作。




Rubber smallholders in Kg. Soronboton seek help from DAP


“Rubber Replanting Project” was promoted by the state government 5 years ago, which has given promises to the smallholders in Kg. Soronboton that they will help to clear the land, replanting of rubber tree and supply of fertilizer. The project was conduct by Sabah Rubber Industries Board. Now 5 years pass, the only thing has done was clearing the land. Sabah DAP Tuaran chief Peter Liew Hui Ken received complaints from the smallholders of Kg. Soronboton about the situation and was being told that they had to buy the seedlings and the fertilizer for the replanting themselves.




Peter Liew visited Kg. Soronboton, and inspected their rubber plantation, he found out only part of the land was planted. Peter was also told because it is due to the expensive seedlings cost and fertilizer. Especially now poor economic, the farmer will have to face difficult and tough time in this industries.



Peter Liew and with the help our DAP Beaufort Branch Secretary, Ong Boon Hoo managed to contacted Sabah Rubber Industries Board about the problem facing by the smallholder in Kg. Soronboton. The Smallholders received fertilizer from the Sabah Rubber Industries Board. They are very grateful of what DAP have done for them, still they need more support in this industrial.



The Smallholder inform that they cannot really make higher earnings because due to the fact that the selling price is much lower in Sabah compare to West Malaysia. They plant the same quality spices of rubber tree and using the same method to harvest, yet the pricing so much different. The Rubber Smallholder wish Sabah DAP can help them to vice out their requirement and wish the authority will consider to increase the selling price in Sabah.



Peter Liew urge the authority promptly look into this matter and help the rubber smallholder to upgrade and develop the rubber plantation in Sabah. This is not only to help to enhance the economic and also will attract more investors to invest in this industrial.

甘榜苏如伯顿(Kg. Soronboton)的橡胶农向民主行动党寻求帮助



州政府在五年前所推动的“橡胶树重植计划”,曾经许诺给甘榜苏如伯顿(Kg. Soronboton)的橡胶农民说他们将会帮助该橡胶农民清理土地,重植胶园及供应肥料。 这是由沙巴橡胶工业局所推动的计划。 然而经过了5年,政府唯一做到的只有清理土地而已。 甘榜苏如伯顿(Kg. Soronboton)的胶农们对政府的食言感到非常不满,因此向沙巴民主行动党斗亚兰区负责人刘辉坚投诉并且寻求其协助。 刘氏被告知说胶农们必须自己购买树苗和肥料来进行重植。



刘辉坚前往该甘榜巡视他们的橡胶园后,他发现只有部分土地被翻种。 他还获悉这是因为该树苗及肥料的成本昂贵,所以胶农们只能翻种小部分的橡胶园。 特别是现在的经济不好,小型橡胶园的胶农们面对着许多困境。



刘氏及民主行动党保佛支部王文和联络了沙巴橡胶工业局,并告知他们有关甘榜苏如伯顿(Kg. Soronboton)的胶农们所面对的困境,而得到关注。 胶农们已收到由沙巴橡胶工业局所供应的肥料。他们非常感谢民主行动党的协助,然而他们仍然需要更多政府在各方面的援助,尤其是经费来进行翻种计划。



该些胶农们说他们的收入非常低,与西马的橡胶价钱来比较,沙巴州的售价是比较低。 他们所栽种的橡胶树的品质与西马相同,并且也使用相同的方式栽种和收割,但是其售价却相差很多。 胶农们希望沙巴民主行动党能够帮助他们,使到他们能够获得价格平等。 希望当局能够考虑提高在沙巴州的橡胶价格。



刘氏促请当局立即纠正此事,并帮助胶农们提升和发展沙巴州的橡胶园。 这不仅有助于提高本州的经济,同时也将吸引更多外来投资者投资于该行业。

SABAH DAP CHRISTMAS CAROLING NIGHT


Sabah DAP Christmas Caroling Night was successfully held on 22nd December 2009 at Inanam Gaya Seafood Restaurant. Some 500 people attended the function and it was specially organized for the people from Telipok, Menggatal and Inanam. Sabah DAP Chairman cum Kota Kinabalu MP, YB Dr Hiew King Cheu, Vice Chairman Edward Ewol Mujie, State Treasurer Fung Kong Win, Publicity Chief Dr. Edwin Bosi and Deputy Publicity Chief, John Lee attended the function.




The program for the night was speeches from DAP leaders and a choir presentation from the All Saint’s Anglican Church. Ms Licie Serikun who was last year Inanam “Sugandoi” finalist presented songs to serenade the guests. There were also coco-cola drinking competitions for man and women and lucky draws.



Sabah DAP State Organizing Secretary Jeffrey Kumin emphasized on the key fact of joy and peace. He also took the opportunity to inform the people of the several resolutions made at the DAP State Convention recently. Kumin said there is a need for a one-to-one fight with BN in the coming 13th general election. He also said Sabah DAP wants the government to eradicate poverty and re-instate Sabah as a rich State in Malaysia. The process of Borneonization is necessary and all Federal government department heads are to be headed by Sabahans.



Sabah DAP State Publicity Secretary Dr. Edwin Bosi in his speech mentioned the real meaning of Christmas, and it is time for all Christians to reconcile on whether they have followed the faith well for the past one year. It is also time to remember our loved ones who have gone before us. He reminded the people the tragic death of a Kadazan boy Donny Diun who because of been ashamed of poverty had hanged himself at the young age of 11 years. How could this happen in a country so endowed with natural resources. Dr. Edwin reminded the people that the BN government is not people-caring. Even the local Kadazan leaders did not raise the issue in parliament. Instead, it was DAP’s stalwart YB Lim Kit Siang who raised the matter up in Parliament and challenged the Sabah leaders to do something about the 24% hardcore poverty in Sabah.



Dr. Edwin informed the people that if we want to change the government we need to be one heart and one mind to overcome the phantom voters and new voters of dubious background. He reminded parents to get their children who have attained 21 years of age to register as voters. Our future depends on them to effect change, he said.



Sabah DAP State Vice Chairman, Mr. Edward Ewol Mujie informed the people that DAP party is not a Chinese party. The National Chairman is YB Karpal Singh and Deputy Chairman is Senator Tengku Ahmad Aziz. DAP is in fact a Malaysian party, he said. According to Mujie, there are many DAP MPs and State Assemblymen who are not Chinese. In Sabah the Natives are joining DAP as it is one party that champion for all Malaysians.



Sabah DAP State Chairman, YB Dr. Hiew mentioned of the government digging into its National Reserve to fund the development projects. He said he had raised the issue of the apparently stop work of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport runway in Parliament. According to the Transport Minister, the problem is of technical and on land acquisition delay. Dr. Hiew explained that these reasons are not acceptable. He thinks the government has no money to continue the job.



YB Dr Hiew further explained that development is badly affected because of rampant corruption. He took a swipe at the anti-corruption agency or MACC which he feels is only going after the small fishes or “ikan bilis”.

沙巴民主行动成办欢乐圣诞之夜



沙巴民主行动党于2009年12月20日星期日在下南南加雅海鲜餐厅举办欢乐圣诞之夜。 该晚会是特别为打里卜,孟加达及下南南的民众而举办,当晚有超过500人出席。 沙巴民主行动党州主席兼亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士,州副主席爱德华慕吉,州财政冯光荣,州宣传秘书艾德温博西医生和州副宣传主任李金星也出席该晚会。



当晚的圣诞和新年晚宴程序有民主行动党领袖致词,亚庇圣公会诗班的演出。 去年下南南土著‘Sugandoi’歌唱比赛前五名优胜者之一莉西亚(Licie Serikun)也当中高歌娱乐来宾。 此外还有喝可口可乐比赛及幸运抽奖。



民主行动党州组织秘书杰菲利古明致词中提到世界和平。 他也借此机会告知有关沙巴民主行动党州联委会的所做出的议决。 杰菲利强调说民联已准备第十三届大选席位的分配,以便能够与国阵一对一的对决。 他说,沙巴民主行动党呼吁国阵政府立即解决及消除贫困,重新让沙巴州成为富有的一州。 他希望看到所有在沙巴州的联邦部门主管职位是由沙巴人来担任。 让沙巴人自己管理自己的沙巴州。



沙巴民主行动党州宣传秘书艾德温博西医生在他的致词中谈到了圣诞节的意义。 他说这是基督徒应反省过去一年的信念与方向,同时也怀念已不在我们当中的人。 艾德温医生提醒市民有关几年前一位十一岁的卡达山族男孩唐尼迪恩(Donny Diun),因为羞愧自己家庭太贫困,导致小小年纪就上吊自杀惨死。 这怎么可能会发生在一个如此拥有丰富天然资源的州属呢?艾德温医生提醒市民,国阵政府并没有关注或照顾人民。 甚至当地的卡达山族领袖也没有在国会中提出解决贫穷的问题。 反而却是由民主行动党林吉祥在国会提出,并且挑战沙巴州的领袖积极地解决沙巴州24%贫穷率的问题。



艾德温博西医生说如果我们要换政府,我们就必需同心协力,打击幽灵选民和来历不明的新选民。 他特别提醒和敦促家长们让他们满二十一岁的儿女尽快登记为选民。 我们未来的改变都在他们的手中。



沙巴民行党州副主席爱德华慕吉告诉民众说,民主行动党并不是华人的政党,而是一个马来西亚的党派,全国党主席卡巴星及副党主席东姑阿兹士就是最佳的列子。 此外他还说,民行党的很多国会议员和州议员并不是华裔。 在沙巴州许多当地土著加入了民主行动党,因为它是马来西亚人的政党。



沙巴民行党州主席邱庆洲博士提到政府从国家储备金提取大笔资金以推动各项发展计划。 他说他已在国会中提出亚庇国际机场跑道工程缓慢施工的问题,甚至有停工的迹象。 根据交通部长的回答,那是因为征用土地延迟及某些技术上的问题。 邱博士说这些原因是不能被接受的。 邱博士认为这是可能政府没有足够的钱来完成这项工程。



邱博士进一步声称,沙巴州的发展计划深受到打击,因为深受到猖獗腐败贪污的影响,甚至于反贪污局只会在捉小鱼而已,大鳄鱼确不敢动。



Sabah DAP Election Committee formed

A “high power election committee” for the Sabah DAP has been formed and endorsed during the recent State Convention held in Kota Kinabalu by all the delegates and members on the 12th of December, 2009.




Sabah DAP state chairman Dr. Hiew King Cheu disclosed this today. He said the setting up of the election committee in the Sabah DAP is deemed necessary for the preparation towards a successful coming general election in Malaysia, especially in Sabah. The main function of the election committee is to deal with all the election matters involved, in particular like strategies, administration, planning, seats negotiation and allocation within Pakatan Rakyat and with other opposition parties there is, and also for the candidate identification, selection, training and confirmation. Besides, during the election period, this committee will be deployed to take full charge of all important matters arising.



The five-member election committee is headed by the Sabah DAP chairman Dr. Hiew King Cheu, Jimmy Wong Tze Phin, Edward Ewol Mujie, Anthony Teo Yen Boon and the state committee secretary Joan Goh Penn Yee.



Dr. Hiew said this is a heavy task and we want to see the election committee to start work as soon as possible on a heavy agenda to ensure a successful big win in the coming general election. The preparation for the next general election has to be well planned and fully cooperated with the team partners in Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in order to go on a ‘one to one’ basis to take on the BN.



The voters in Sabah should look at the next general election as a chance to seek and to bring about a change in the political scenario, and PR is their only choice that can bring about changes to the present “ill” situation in Sabah. We have so many issues and present day hardship needed to be put right, BN government could not deliver and solve our Sabah problem. This is why the Sabahan is not getting a good deal for such a long time, and the situation is getting from bad to worst. It is time for the Sabahan to tell the Federal BN government “enough is enough”.



Dr. Hiew King Cheu, Sabah DAP state chairman.





沙巴民主行动党成立选举筹备委员会



沙巴民主行动党‘高层选举筹备委员会’已经在零九年十二月十二日在亚庇举办的常年代表大会中为全体党员及支部代表决定而正式成立。



沙巴州民主行动党州主席邱庆洲博士今日公布。他说成立沙巴州民主行动党选举筹备委员会,是为了能够在下一届的大选中走向成功,尤其是在沙巴州,因此各方面的准备是必要的。 该选举筹备委员会的主要职责是处理所有与选举有关的事项,特别是在策略,管理,规划与民联间之席位谈判及分配,以及与本州其他反对党的协调,同时也负责鉴定,遴选,培训和确认候选人。 此外,在选举期间,该筹备委员会将会掌管及部署所有重要的事项及选举的开销。



该选举筹备委员会的五位委员,他们是沙巴民主行动党州主席邱庆洲博士,黄仕平,爱德华慕吉,张衍文及州秘书吴佩霓。



邱博士说这将会是一项重要的任务,而他希望该党选举筹备委员会尽快开始该项准备工作,以确保在下一届的大选中能够成功达到理想的成绩。 下一届大选的准备工作必须精心策划,并在民联(PR)中与其它政党互相配搭及合作,以便能够在大选中与国阵采取‘一对一’的方式来寻求人民的支持。



沙巴州的选民应该藉着下一届大选的机会来改朝换代,而民联则是他们唯一的选择,如此才能够扭转沙巴州一向“不健康”的政治形势。 我们有这么多的问题和困境必须要纠正及有待解决,而国阵政府却不能提供解决的方案来处理沙巴州的问题。 这就是为什么沙巴人民经过那么多年都得不到或看不到沙巴州的情况有任何的改善,反而更是越来越糟糕。 现在沙巴人是时候向国阵政府说‘我们受够了’。




Bus shelter- kolombong

A bus shelter sustained damage from this devastating storm months ago which located in front of Pangsapuri Polis Taman Nelly Fasa 4, Kolombong, remain in an unattended condition, currently commuters were forced to huddle in the collapsed bus shelters in the rainy days, which is very risky or could be fatal especially to children or students waiting for buses if the roof further fall apart.





Mr. Edward Ewol Muji, Sabah DAP Local Government and Housing Bureau Chief, is urging the DBKK to closed the bus shelter immediately in the interests of public safety and to and promptly rectify this problem urgently and get it open as quickly as possible as to minimize disruption. Adding that, the elected representative, numerous appointed officers in this area should have a higher priority to serve the needs of the people.

哥隆邦遭毁坏的巴士站



在哥隆邦Taman Nelly警察局前的一座巴士站在月前遭受风暴雨的破坏,直到今天该情况没有被处理或维修,导致乘客在雨天被迫蜷缩在倒塌的巴士站里。 若有一天该巴士站的遮棚倒塌,这将会非常很危险的事,特别是针对儿童或学生,可能会造成意外致命的发生。



沙巴民主行动党地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉敦促亚庇市政厅即刻封闭该巴士站,并且立刻进行维修工作以减低意外事故发生,这是关系到公众安全的问题,当局必须尽快的处理。 他还补充说身为人民的代议士,在这方面应该有更警惕及必须随时为民服务的优先考量,而不要只会满口‘以民为本’的宣言,却没有实际的行动。

10+2 SPM Exam Subjects

The DAP views with serious concern the Education Ministry's recent announcement to add 2 optional subjects to the 10 subjects for the 2010 SPM examinations.




The two optional subjects are from the pool of subjects as follows:-

1.Mandarin 2.Tamil 3.Chinese literature 4.Tamil literature 5.Iban language 6.Punjabi 7.Arabic communication 8. French 9. English for science and technology 10. Bible knowledge



What is very disturbing and will have reaching far implications to the above especially Chinese/Tamil school is that any of the 2 additional subjects taken will not be taken into account for the computation of aggregate, credits or if the CGPA system is used, in the award of SPM certificate. We are also told that the results for the 2 subjects will not be considered for the loan and scholarship application.



The Ministry is also leaving it to the school heads to determine the number of subjects, options and streams whereby students and parents will have little say.



The DAP views this as yet another attempt to stifle the growth of vernacular education in Malaysia. In fact this system will spell a slow and natural death of vernacular education in Malaysia as students at that age will probably go for only 10 subjects as the addition 2 subjects options will have no bearing on the SPM certificate.



We call upon the Education Minister to review such measure and to allow students to take the maximum of 12 subjects in the SPM and all Subjects or any of a fixed number of highest achieved subjects to be used for the computation of aggregates.



The DAP also calls for education to be liberalized and not restricted and exclude vernacular subjects such as Mandarin, Tamil, Chinese literature, Tamil literature, Punjabi and Iban. We should not limit the scope and capacity building of the student and also their creative faculty. The students, especially Chinese and Tamil will be faced with a dilemma to choose between science subjects and Chinese/Tamil/Chinese literature and Tamil literature. Eventually in the long run this will lead to fewer students opting for these subjects which will inturn lead to the demise of vernacular schools.

10 + 2政府高中科目




民主行动党非常关注教育部最近宣布将会在二零一零年的政府高中考试,除了十项考试科目以外,将增加多两科选修科目。



该增加的考试选修科目的选择如下:-

1。华文 2。淡米尔文 3。华文文学 4。泰米尔文学 5。伊班语 6。Punjabi 7。阿拉伯会话 8。法语 9。英语科学和技术 10。圣经知识



教育部的提案让人感到非常不安,并会造成某些影响,特别是在独中和谈米尔学校。 如果采取选修其中两科选修科,该两科目将不被纳入政府高中证书的主要考科及CGPA系统里。 我们还得知,关于该两科选修课,纵然其成绩优越,但是将不能用于申请贷款或奖学金的用途。



教育部将保留给校长去确定学生所读的科目,其选择和科系,而学生和家长对该事项也没有议决权。



民主行动党认为这项做法又再一次企图扼杀马来西亚教育的制度和程度。 事实上,该项措施将会导致马来西亚的教育水平变得低落和倒退。 很自然的学生们可能只会选择10科的考试科目而不会选择另外两科,尤其是当该选修科目不会在政府高中文凭有任何的影响。 因此就算学生们不读也无所谓,因为根本不影响他们的考试成绩。



沙巴民主行动党教育局主任兼亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士呼吁教育部长慎重及重新审查这项措施,让学生们能够在政府高中报考十二项科目,及任何有优越分数的科目能够用于该考试的总计算。



民主行动党呼吁教育部在教育上必须以开放的心态,而不是限制和排除如华语,谈米尔语,华语文学,谈米尔语文学,Punjabi语和伊班语等。 我们不应该限制学生们学习的范围,或阻碍他们的创造能力。 特别是华裔和印裔的学生,他们将会面对两难之间,尤其是他们必须要在华语/淡米尔语/华语文学及淡米尔语文学中作出选择。 这从长远来看,最终将会使到学生放弃该些科目,而导致日后该科目将被校方排除在外。 从此学生的学习领域也被限制和倒退。

Greening the Steps at Foh Sang

Edward Ewol Mujie, Sabah DAP Local Government and Housing Bureau Chief said he had received complaint from the people in Foh Sang that creepers has grown so thick and has cover half of the steps going up to Jalan Kolam.





He was told that although they have requested DBKK for clear and removed the creepers but up to date still has not been done. The hawkers who are trading behind the shop lots complaint to Edward, saying that they have seen few snakes going into the creepers when they come every morning to arrange their stall.



Edward said he will notify the authority concerned to clear the creepers before any harm done to anybody. DBKK have to make sure that the greening around the road side or street must be clear and keep safe.

和生园的梯阶



沙巴民主行动党地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉获得许多有关和生园的梯阶的投诉,在该处店后面的梯阶长满了攀缘植物,并且几乎掩盖了该梯阶的一半。



他被告知说,尽管他们已经向亚庇市政厅投诉,要求清理攀缘植物,但是目前为止当局仍然还没有派人来处理。 在和生园店后面摆摊的小贩们告诉爱德华说,当他们每天早上来摆他们的摊位时,曾经发现有少数蛇只出没在该处。



爱德华说他将会通知有关当局有关他们的投诉,并且要求他们尽快派人清理攀缘植物以免有任何危险事故发生。 亚庇市政厅必须定时清理亚庇市路边或街道周围的草地,以保持市民的安全。

New Jalan Budusan still No Lighting

After many years of suffering, Bundusan road has finally been upgraded and paved with tarred. However, despite the enlargement of the road, bottleneck exists causing massive and prolong traffic jam in the morning rush hour and after office hour. At certain part of the road, there are deep pot-holes which damaged the wheels and tires of smaller vehicles. These pot-holes are a menace and night mare especially during the night.




The new street lights are in place however, few of them have already being rammed by the cars. Do we blame the drivers or the bad condition of the new road? These new street lights are never lit and driving in the dark is very dangerous and risky. We blame SESB, JKR, DBKK and Penampang Council for this problem. However, the BN government must be accountable also, this is because the government is appending the tax-payers’ money to do a job that is no good but causing more problem to the people. The road designer and engineers have not designed and built the new road to solve traffic jam, but in stead introduced more jam.



The so-called billions of Federal funding to Sabah seem to go nowhere. It is only talked about and widely publicized by the BN government but never really been felt or seen by the people. At least with such amount of money, Sabah should have a very good highway and road network, a consistent power supply and clean water, and excellent drainage system. We wonder why the BN government after spending so much of our money and yet we see more traffic in Jalan Bundusan and without lighting. Don’t wait until some is killed in a road accident then only switch on the lights.

新本都山路(Bundusan road)仍然还没有街灯



经过许多年的痛苦等待,本都山路(Bundusan)路终于被提升并且也铺上了柏油。然而,尽管该段道路已经扩大,然而该段路瓶颈的存在,导致早晨上班和下班的顶峰时间面对严重的交通堵塞。 此外该段道路的某些地方有多个深锅洞,这将会造成损毁小型汽车和其轮胎。 尤其是在夜间时刻对车辆更加危险。该段道路自从竣工以后一直都没有路灯照明,因此在黑暗中驾驶是极度危险的。



新本都山路虽然已经有路灯装设好,但是并没有在夜间开亮,其中一些灯柱已被汽车撞倒。 我们是否要责怪司机还是本都山(Bundusan)路面糟糕的情况呢? 这些新的路灯在晚上不着亮,将会导致驾驶者面对交通意外的危险和风险。 我们针对此问题谴责电力公司,工程局,亚庇市政厅和兵南邦县议会。 更主要的是国阵政府也必须全部负起责任, 因为政府所使用的是纳税人的钱来做该项提升的工程,不但没有把它做好,反而造成更多问题。 此外,道路设计师和工程师们也没有好好的设计来建造该段新道路以解决交通堵塞问题,现在却导致更加严重的交通诸塞。



由此可见联邦所拨给沙巴州马币十亿的拨款似乎起不了什么作用。 政府只是会不断地高谈阔论和广泛的宣传,但从来就没有看到其工程能够让沙巴人民真正受惠及获得好处。沙巴州所得到的拨款数额是最少, 因此沙巴如何能够有一个非常好的高速公路和道路系络,充足的电供及清洁的食水,良好的排水系统等。 我们想知道为什么国阵政府花了这么多的钱来提升本都山路,但是所看到问题是更多及更严重的交通诸塞。请不要等到有交通事故发生,失去宝贵生命,然后才愿意开路灯来亮照。

Filipina and Indonesian using visit pass to seek job in Sabah

The Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu asked the Minister of Tourism during the question and answer time in an additional question in the Parliament last 17th November on what action taken by the government on the issue of foreigners using “visit-pass” to come into Sabah to seek for work, especially those from the Philippine and Indonesia.





The Minister of Tourism Datuk Ng Yen Yen in a written reply said, it is an offence on using the social visit pass to work in Malaysia under the Section 39(b) of the Immigration Act 1963.



According to the statistic of the Immigration Department (JIM), up to 31st of October 2009, there are 132 persons from Filipina and 292 persons from Indonesia are being caught using the visit pass to work in Sabah. This is only 0.3% from a total of 45,342 tourists from Philippine and a 0.36% from a total of 80,576 tourists from Indonesia for the period. The offenders will be charged in court and face a fine.



The Ministry of Internal Affair through the Immigration Department is working with the Police and the RELA is taking action to check and apprehend on the foreigners who are in Malaysia, and who are at fault will charged by the Immigration Department under the law.



The Ministry will also ensure the Tourism Promotion Board to undertake to receive good quality tourists into the country.



The KK MP Dr. Hiew King Cheu said when he looked at the official figure as given by the Minister is to his surprise. How can there be so few offenders being caught? These figures cannot be true and far too small, and many could have got away with it. The Immigration department will be unable to trace these people once they are in the country, because they have no proper address and no way to be found. The problem existed for a long time now.



Hiew said the Immigration department should step up the procedure to grant entry visiting pass to these people, and should refuse entry if there is any doubt on the person entering Malaysia. This is especially so in the various entry points in Sabah, like Sandakan, Kudat, Tawau, Kota Kinabalu, and Labuan.



The police and the RELA will have to ensure all the operations be conducted strictly and accordingly. The KK MP said he will request to join in personally in some of the operation for flushing out the illegal and offenders, to see how it is actually being carried out.

菲律宾和印尼通过旅游证件在沙巴找工作



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲于十一月十七日在国会的问答环节中询问旅游部部长,有关政府将采取怎样的行动来对付使用‘旅游准证’到沙巴寻求工作的外国人,尤其是来自菲律宾和印尼。



旅游部部长拿督黄燕燕回答说,根据一九六三年第39条(b)移民法令条文,利用旅游证件在马来西亚工作是违法的。



根据移民局(JIM)目前2009年10月31日的统计,有132名菲律宾人和292名印尼人被发现使用旅游准证在沙巴工作。 从来至菲律宾四万五千三百四十二的游客人数中只是0.3%,及来自印尼八万零五百七十六名游客中只有0.36%而已。 这些违例者将被控上法庭,面对惩罚。



内政部将透过移民厅和警方及地保团(RELA)密切的合作,采取行动检查并且逮捕的在马来西亚非法工作的外国人,任何违规者都将受到移民厅法令的惩罚。



旅游部部长也将确保旅游促进局将努力吸引高品质的游客前来我国旅游观光。



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士说,当他知悉部长提供的官方数字时感到很惊讶。 怎么可能会有这么少的违规者被抓? 这些数字不可能真实,而且数量实在少之有少,也许有许多落网者没有被逮捕。 他们一旦进入我国后,移民厅将无法知悉及追踪得到他们的去向,因为他们并没有正确的地址,使到移民厅束手无策。 其实这个问题已经在沙巴存在很久了。



邱氏说,移民厅应该在签发给这些人的入境准证,比如说旅游准证,必须要更加仔细及加强申请程序。如果发现有任何可疑的人利用旅游准证进入马来西亚,以期给他们有寻找工作的机会,就应该立即拒绝给于入境。 尤其是在沙巴州各入境关口如山打根,古达,斗湖,亚庇,和纳闽。



警方和地保团RELA必须确保所有的检验和调查行动必须严格的进行,以对付这些违法者。亚庇国会议员说,他将会要求参于该些扫荡行动,以便更了解该些行动的进行实况,也能够实际上亲眼看看当局是如何进行该些行动。

No end to “underpinning works” at Beverly Hill’s Phase 1 Block Q

Apartment owner, John Yapp’s patience has run out. He is unable to occupy or rent out his apartment at Q4-2, Phase 1 due to some “underpinning works” which was supposed to be completed by 18th October 2009. He has sorted the assistance of Sabah DAP Dr. Edwin Bosi in October 2009 hoping that mega housing developer Wong Kwok who developed Beverly Hill would do something about their (tenants) concern and predicament. In fact, his simple request is for Wong Kwok to re-purchase his apartment.






On 2nd December 2009, John invited Dr. Edwin to make a joint inspection of the site.. The “underpinning works” are still underway, way pass the time frame given by the management. We noticed an active discharge of water from underground. The building appeared to tilt a little. When we went to see John’s apartment on the 2nd floor, there was a feeling of uneven floor. The door slammed close by itself and one can feel walking down a gradient floor.



This building was given an occupation certificate by the Penampang District Council some years back. With this “underpinning works” underway, it is only proper that the Penampang District Council inspects this block again to ascertain if it is still fit for occupation. Dr. Edwin the PDC take action immediately before any disaster matter occurs.

比华利公寓Q座‘地基维修工程’没完没了



比华利公寓业主,约翰叶已经耐心耗尽,因为他所居住的比华利公寓Q座正在进行着‘地基维修’的工程,造成他不能继续居住或出租他所拥有用公寓。 而根据在2009年10月18管理层的布告日期,应该是已完成该地基维修工作。 叶氏在2009年10月向沙巴民主行动党兵南邦领袖艾德温博西医生投诉,寻求他的协助要求帮忙把该事件发表出来,希望该公寓的房屋发展黄国集团能够关注该处住户的困境。 因为面对这种问题,叶氏的要求黄国集团能够买回他的公寓,他也不希望继续拥有该公寓。



在2009年12月2日,叶氏邀请艾德温医生再次前往该处视察,发现该‘地基维修’工程仍在进行中,和管理层所发出的布告并不符合。 在视察当中他们注意到有很多的地下水涌出来,而该栋建筑物也已经倾斜。 当进入叶氏2楼的公寓时,地台有倾斜倒向一边的迹象,因此该公寓的大门会自动闭上。



兵南邦县议会已经给于该座公寓的建设合格证书和入伙纸。 据于‘地基维修’工程必须进行,这显示该地基极不安全,兵南邦县议会必须取消该入伙纸并进行调查,以确定是否仍然适合于居住。 为何兵南邦县议会并没有采取行动,难道他们不知道该公寓不适合居住。 艾德温医生说他希望看到兵南邦立即采取行动而不要有一天搞出大事件来。

abah DAP wants Native Court to continue issuing the “Sijil Anak Negeri Sabah”

YB Jimmy Wong, DAP representative for Sri Tanjung met up with Kota Kinabalu District Chief, OKK William Mojimbun at his office in Sembulan on 24th November 2009 to verify his “sijil anak negeri Sabah”. YB Jimmy was accompanied by Sabah DAP Bureau Chief for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Dr. Edwin Bosi.





When presented with the certificate, OKK Mojimbun stated that his certificate “appeared” genuine however he needed time to search the file for verification. When copntacted, OKK Mojimbun said he has written a letter to the Director of Natives Affair Datuk Hj Awang Seharin on this matter. Due to the high profile of this case, the matter is now with the Director and we are waiting for his response, he said.



YB Jimmy Wong said he has nothing to fear about the authenticity of his “sijil anak negeri”. He hopes the authority will expedite the verification so that he can take action against those who questioned his certificate. He said that the UMNO-BN representative from Sekong has also questioned the status and jurisdiction of the Native Court of Sabah.



On the same note, Sabah DAP fully supports the call by Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak YAA Tan Sri Richard Malanjun to review the Native Laws of Sabah. The party also wants the Native Court to issue the “sijil anak negeri Sabah” to allow the thousands of qualified Sabahans to feel at home with the Natives. As far as Sabah DAP is concerned, the freeze on the issuance of the “sijil anak negeri Sabah” by the Ministry of Local Government is invalid and an assault on the jurisdiction of the Native Court.





(Pic : shows YB Jimmy Wong (middle) presenting his “sijil anak negeri Sabah” to KK District Chief OKK William Mojimbun at his office in Sembulan on 24th November 2009. Looking on is Dr. Edwin Bosi, Sabah DAP Bureau Chief for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries. )





沙巴民主行动党希望土著法院继续发出“土著证书”



沙巴民主行动党斯里丹绒州议员黄仕平在二零零九年十一月二十四日,前往亚庇区行政官的办事处拜会威廉马贞文(OKK William Mojimbun) ,以检验黄氏的沙巴‘土著证书’的真伪。 陪同黄仕平前往的是沙巴民主行动党农业,畜牧业和渔业局主任艾德温博西医生。



当威廉马贞文检验过黄州议员的证书时,威廉说黄氏的证书‘应该’是没问题,但是他需要一些时间来验证该文件。 此外威廉将会致函给予土著事务局主任拿督哈芝阿旺斯哈林(Datuk Hj Awang Seharin)有关该土著证书。 由于该事件已受到高度社会的关注,目前只能等待有关当局主任的反应,及进一步的详细解说。



黄州议员说,他不担心他所领取的土著证书的真实性。 他希望当局尽快的进行核查,使他可以指责那些质疑他的‘土著证书’的人士,尤其是国阵巫统西贡(Sekong)区的州议员。 既然他在质疑土著真书的合法性,这代表着他也同时质疑沙巴土著法庭的崇高地位和职权。



针对沙巴和沙捞越的高等法官丹斯里理查德马兰俊(YAA Tan Sri Richard Malanjun)呼吁有关重新审核沙巴州的土著法庭及法律, 沙巴民主行动党会全力支持。 行动党也希望土著法庭能够继续发出沙巴的‘土著证书’给予成千上万合格的沙巴人,让他们能够拥有该土著证书。 沙巴民主行动党表示说,该项冻结及禁止发出‘土著证书’是不公平的,该党也呼吁土著法庭继续审查据有资格的人士,并且发给他们应得的证书。

Peminping Kemajuan Rakyat (PKR)

The appointment of Chin Teck Ming as the PKR (CDO) for Luyang came with heavy criticism from the community in Kota Kinabalu.




Edward Ewol Mujie, the Sabah DAP Local government and Housing Bureau chief said there are unfavorable comments regarding his appointment as the community development officer (CDO) for Luyang. Many people said that Chin is still a working solicitor who has to attend court regularly and has court cases on going, why he still being appointed and to accept the appointment.



The PKR post is a full-time civil servant position, with a pay around RM 4,000.00 per month with pension and EPF benefits. The job responsibility is to look after the well being of people in the area designated. Edward wondered why Chin wanted and accepted a government full time job being paid far less then the big income as a solicitor, or is it the PKR job can bring him more on other “interest”? How well can he perform under this appointment?



Chin is also a “kapitan Cina” for Likas now, will he be giving up his appointment there? The Kapitan Cina appointment also is giving him an income of some RM 400.00 per month. It is surprising that a “learned person” like him would go for these positions, why not just quit his present solicitor practice and become a full time public servant in stead?



At the mean while, we, the community here shall monitor his performance. He is now officially subjected under the BN government system of “Key Performance Index” (KPI), we trust the Minister of the Prime Minister Department Tan Sri Dr. Koh Suh Kun will make sure all these people on the government pay role are on the list of KPI assessment, because these people are appointed by the BN government, and paid by the tax-payers.



Edward Ewol Mujie, Sabah DAP Local Government and Housing Bureau chief.





路阳人民发展领袖(PKR)



针对陈德明被委任为路阳区的人民发展领袖,民众有许多争议和诸多批评。



沙巴民主行动党地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉说,有关于陈氏被委任为路阳人民发展领袖(CDO)的一职有很多不良的评论。 很多人都说,陈氏现在仍然是执业律师,并且经常出庭及处理诉讼案件,如此忙碌的他为何仍然会被委任为人民发展领袖,并且他也乐意接受该职位的委任。



人民发展领袖是个全职的公务员职位,政府每月支付约马币四千的薪俸及享有退休金和公积金。 其职责是在所指定的地区,照顾和关注人民的福利和地方上的问题。 爱德华想知道为什么陈德明愿意接受这项政府的全职工作,而其薪俸比起他本身律师的收入更加少。 或者是因为当上人民发展领袖会比较有“利益”? 他究竟能否做得好这项工作?



此外,陈氏也是里卡士区的‘华人甲必丹’, 如今他接受被委任为人民发展领袖,就必定要放弃甲必丹这个职位,此外身为‘甲必丹’他也被付每月马币四百的薪俸。 令人惊讶的是像他如此有高‘学识’的人也会去争着来担任这些职位,为什么陈氏不辞去他目前执业律师的工作,去做一名全职的公务员呢?



与期同时,我们将会密切的留意他将来的工作表现。 陈氏现在是公务员,也据于国阵政府的‘主要工作表现指标’(KPI)的制度下,我们相信首相署部长丹斯里许子根博士将确保像他这类型的受薪政府公务员是包括在‘KPI’的评估名单内。 因为这些人都是由国阵政府委任的,并且是由纳税人支付他们的薪水,所以他们的表现及工作效率必须受到评估。



Federal Allocation for Sabah Municipal and District councils, and DBKK

Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu asked the Federal Ministry of Housing and Local government in Parliament whether there is a possibility for the federal allocation to the various Sabah district, municipal council and the DBKK be increased due to the various needs for more fund on development projects, and by how much.







The reply stated that in the 9th Malaysia plan, the Ministry of Housing and Local government (KPKT) has given as much as RM600 thousand a year for every local council (PBT). Starting from 2009, KPKT has been given an increment of 100%, that is from RM600 thousand to RM 1.2 million every year for every PBT in Sabah.



For federal grant to carry out small projects for 2009, there is an allocation of RM40.977 million and for 2010, the Federal government will give yearly grant amounting total to RM 34.559 million to all PBT in Sabah.



Some details on the allocation for small projects (BP.1) 2009 and 2010 for certain areas are as follows:-

2009 2010

1. DBKK RM 3,039,580.00 3,951,787.20

2. MP Sandakan 1,400,000.00 4,495,456.10

3. MP Tawau 3,098,400.00 3,904,182.56

4. MD Beaufort 4,366,096.00 922,120.51

5. MD Tuaran 3,688,156.00 1,147,961.09



(see the rest in the full list attached).



Therefore, for DBKK, there is a total amount of fund from the federal yearly of RM 4.24 million for 2009 and expected to have RM 5.15 million for 2010.



Dr. Hiew asked the Minister in Parliament during the Q n A, the possibility of increasing the amount due to the fact that Kota Kinabalu is the “Gate way to Borneo” and DBKK needed the fund to have more development plans implemented, for example beautification work, infrastructure upgrading, traffic and street lighting work etc..



The Minister replied that he knows about the need by DBKK and he will pay particular attention to the request by the Kota Kinabalu MP.



Hiew on the other hand said the federal grant and allocation should be increased to at least RM 10 million in total. This will speed up some of the lacking aspect of the KK development on the public amenities and facilities. Just comparing to some small district councils, they are getting a much bigger share of the development fund and allocation, eg. For 2009, MD Beaufort RM 5.50 million, MD Tuaran RM 4.88 million, while DBKK the City and the State Capital only get RM 4.29 million. Thus, we have to ask for more funds for DBKK. Hiew said he will continue to follow up with the Minister to seek his consent to give DBKK more fund under the Budget 2010.

联邦分配给沙巴州市议会,县议会以及亚庇市政厅的拨款



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士在国会询问联邦房屋和地方政府部长,有关联邦是否会增加沙巴州市/县议会,以及亚庇市政厅的基本发展拨款,将会有增加多少?



部长的回答说,联邦房屋和地方政府部门(KPKT)根据第九马来西亚计划,已经拨出给每个市/县议会(PBT)每年马币六十万的款项。 从二零零九年起,该部门(KPKT)已经给于100%的增加,那就是说沙巴州的各议会将从马币六十万增加至每年一百二十万。



根据联邦政府所批准的二零零九年小型工程拨款,所拨出款额共有马币四千九百七十七万,而二零一零年,联邦政府将每年给予沙巴州各议会的补助总金额为马币三十四千五百五十九万。



根据部分(BP.1)2009年和2010年的小型工程拨款分配详情如下:-



2009 2010

1。亚庇市政厅 RM 3,039,580.00 3,951,787.20

2。山打根市议会 1,400,000.00 4,495,456.10

3。斗湖市议会 3,098,400.00 3,904,182.56

4。保佛县议会 4,366,096.00 922,120.51

5。斗亚兰县议会 3,688,156.00 1,147,961.09

(其余的请看附录)



因此,联邦政府在二零零九年拨给亚庇市政厅的拨款总额是马币四百二十四万,预计在二零一零年则是马币五百一十五万。



邱博士在国会中的问答环节中向部长提问有关亚庇市的拨款数额是否可以增加,这是因为亚庇市是沙巴州的主要城市, 因此亚庇市政厅需要有更多的金钱来发展,并且推动和实施工程计划,例如环境美化,提升基本设施,交通和街道照明等工作。



部长回答说,他知道亚庇市政厅的需要,他将会特别注意由亚庇国会议员所提的该项问题。



邱氏说,联邦政府其实应该把拨款增加到至少马币一千万。 这将加快提升公共设施和设备发展方面的一些不足。和一些小的县议会比较,他们所获得的款额分配比亚庇市更多,例如,2009年,保佛获得马币五百五十万,斗亚兰是马币四百八十八万,反而亚庇市政厅,主要城市兼沙巴州首府却只获得马币四百二十九万。 因此,身为亚庇国会议员,邱博士要为亚庇市政厅要求更多的联邦资金援助。 他说,他将继续询问部长并要求他能够在2010年财政预算案中,拨给亚庇市政厅更多的款项。

Flood situation in Beaufort must be permanently solved


The Kota Kinabalu MP recently asked the Minister in Parliament on the plans that the government has ready to solve the serious annual flooding situation in Beaufort, and how much is the allocation from the federal fund for the purpose.




The written stated that the federal government is serious on controlling the flood situation in the area around Beaufort that is subjected to flood yearly. The Department of drainage and Irrigation (DID/JPS) Malaysia and JPS Sabah is taking action as follows:-



(1) Jps Malaysia is using RM 2 million from the federal funding to come up with positive plans under “ Pelan Induk Tebatan Banjir bagi Lembangan Sungai Padas”. The plan is to ensure that Beaufort valley will not be affected by flood anymore, and the work has been commenced and launched on the 16th July 2009, and will be ready by 15th July 2010.



(2) For the short plan, JPS Sabah is building a flood gate in the Beaufort town to stop the flood water from the river entering the town area during flooding season. Apart from this, during 2010, a bund as long as 2 kilometer will be built along the Padas River to stop the rising river water to enter the town. The work will involve a sum of RM10 million from the fund allocated from the Sabah State government.



(3) The rest of the work on the flood control in Beaufort will be carried out in the future under the 10th Malaysia Plan when funding is made available.



Dr. Hiew, the KK MP viewed the work to be carried out by the Federal and the state government will not be enough and able to solve the annual flood in the Beaufort district. For example, why spent RM 2 million to do a study and it takes one whole to do that, and what happen after the proposal plan? Create another RM billion project? When Beaufort town is successfully protected from the flood, what about the down stream land which is worst flooded? We want to save those poor people who cannot carry out any more agriculture activities any more due to the flood. Their lively-hood is totally spoiled by the annual flood. We want to see eventually the whole Beaufort district to be free of flood, and the people can plan on future use of their land there.



Hiew proposed to immediate open a new cannel linking Weston to Beaufort, wide and deep enough for the flood water to drain into the open sea. The flood in Beaufort district is mostly due to the great amount of water coming down from the upstream of the Padas River, and due to the winding river with many bends slow down the flow. Also the river is seriously silted up causing the swelling of the river water. If a cannel is cut to drain the flood water into the sea fast enough, Beaufort will definitely not subjected to flood in the future. For the sack of the Beaufort folks, the government should immediately proceed to the plans that will solve the flood situation for ever, embarking on small measures will not help.





Dr. Hiew King Cheu. KK MP.









保佛长期淹水问题必须尽快获得解决



亚庇国会议员在国会中询问天然资源及环境部部长拿督道格拉斯,政府是否已经准备及策划有关改善及解决保佛每年所面对的严重淹水问题,而联邦会不会拨出款项来进行这些计划。



部长的书面回答说,联邦政府已经着手进行控制保佛区每年遭受严重水灾的问题。 马来西亚水利灌溉局(DID)和沙巴州(JPS)本身的水利灌溉局将会采取如下行动:-



(1)马来西亚水利灌溉局(DID)将利用联邦所拨出的马币两百万,积极的研究及策划“巴达士河防洪计划”以解决该项悬挂以久的问题。 该项计划是要确定保佛在将来不会再面对淹水问题,而且防洪研究工作已经于2009年7月16日开始进行,并且将会在2010年7月15完成报告书。



(2)至于短期计划,沙巴州水利灌溉局将在保佛市镇前兴建防洪闸门,阻止在河水泛滥期间洪水涌入市区内。 此外,政府将在2010年建设一座约2公里长的高堤。这项工程将涉及马币一千万林吉,这是由沙巴州政府所拨出的款额。



(3)至于保佛其余的防洪工作,将会在下一个第十大马计划中提出,以及分配该项的拨款。



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士觉得联邦和州政府所进行的防灾工作,发现这是不足够的去解决保佛区每年的淹水问题。 例如,为什么该部门要花马币两百万做研究,而不是一个整体来进行防灾工作,研究该计划以后又怎么样? 是否又要再去争取另外的拨款来兴建所建议的防灾工程? 当保佛镇成功受到保护,遭受最严重淹水的下游地区又将如何解决呢? 我们需要帮助该处的农民,有许多因为遭受到淹水问题而该土地无法进行耕种。他们的农作物及生计都遭受一年一度淹水的破坏。 我们希望看到的是整个保佛区最终能够不必再面对淹水的问题,人们可以在自己的土地有计划的进行耕种。



邱氏建议当局立即开发一条新河道连接从维士珍(Weston)到保佛区,该河道必须要扩阔和有足够的深度,足以把大量河水排入到大海中。保佛区淹水的主要原因是由于大量的河水来从巴达士河上游冲下来,而且由于有许多河弯道导致河水汇流速度减慢。 此外河沙严重的淤积造成了河水泛滥。 如果增加多一条河道将该河流的水迅速的排入海中,保佛区以后绝对不会再面对水灾问题。 为了保佛人民百姓的着想,政府应该立即进行防灾计划,以及永久性的解决水灾问题,蝇头的措施将是枉然的。






Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Yahya Hussin - ticks off “ungrateful” former civil servants



Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Yahya Hussin who is also Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry has ticked off “ungrateful” former civil servants who have been criticizing the government (Borneo Post, 30th November 2009).




If we look back at history, Datuk Yahya was a senior Police officer before joining USNO and then he became “ungrateful” by criticizing the then PBS government under the Chief Minister and Huguan Siou Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan. Ironically, Yahya is now sitting next to the man and working with the party he criticized. How do we describe Yahya in this particular case?



Datuk Yahya should not be too touchy on these former civil servants who are openly not with his BN government. They have served the government and the people well but the government probably did not serve them well. So they have decided to criticize so that the government can change and improve. There is nothing “ungrateful” about it. This is called freedom of expression and freedom of choice. This is called democracy.



To be fair, Datuk Yahya should look for the root causes of why they are against the government now. Is it because UMNO-dominated BN government is practicing a discriminatory policy in the civil service? First, look at the composition of civil servants in the public sectors. It does not reflect the multi-racial composition of Sabah. Second, look at the opportunity for promotion. The non-Muslim Natives are not given due recognition for promotion. Third, look at the government “policy” of re-appointing “favored” officers who have long passed their compulsory retirement age. In this case every qualified officers are unhappy with the “policy” when they have to retire upon reaching the compulsory retirement age and not given the chance to hold on to the highest posts because someone is “re-appointed” again and again.



Sabah DAP Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Bureau Chief, Dr. Edwin Bosi has to enlighten Datuk Yahya that there are numerous other causes of why former civil servants are against the BN government. If the government does not change the way it treats her civil servants, Dr. Edwin sure in this coming 13th general election, Datuk Yahya will be facing off as a “ungrateful” former civil servant.











耶耶斥责‘忘恩负义’的公务员



沙巴州副首席部长兼农业和食品工业部长拿督斯耶耶胡欣斥责曾经在政府服务的前公务员,对他们一直在批评政府的‘忘恩负义’行为感到不满(婆罗洲邮报二零零九年十一月三十日)。



如果我们回顾历史,拿督耶耶本身在加入USNO前曾经是一名警务人员,然后他变成‘忘恩负义’的批评和毁谤沙巴团结党,由当时首席部长拿督约瑟拜林所执政的州政府。 最讽刺的是,耶耶现在却坐在他曾经毁谤的政党和百林的旁边。我们要如何描述耶耶这种的特殊情况?



拿督耶耶不应该对这些离弃国阵政府的前公务员感到过于敏感。 他们以前为政府和人民任劳任怨的服务,但政府却没有感激他们的服务。 因此,他们站出来批评政府,是希望能够有所改变和改善。 这根本不是如他所说的‘忘恩负义’的态度,而是居于言论自由和思想自由。 这就是所谓的民主主义。



为了公平起见,拿督耶耶应该找出他们为何对现在政府不满的根源。 是不是因为巫统国阵州政府对公务员有歧视性政策? 首先让我们看看公务员在公共部门的架构,是完全没有反映出沙巴州多元种族的架构。 第二,针对晋升的机会,非穆斯林的土著和华裔得不到应有的承认和晋升。 第三,政府‘青睐’并‘重新’委任已超过退休年龄的人士的‘政策’是一项极偏差的政策。 这对有经验及有资格的公务员到了将退休年龄时,都一直没有机会晋升上高职位,是因为有人一次又一次的被‘重新委任’。



沙巴民主行动党农业,畜牧业及渔业局主任,艾德温博西医生希望拿督耶耶应该认真看待有关为什么前公务员对国阵政府如此不满。 如果政府不改变对非穆斯林的土著和华裔公务员的看待及遭遇, 艾德温医生相信在即将来临的第十三届大选,拿督耶耶将是一个‘忘恩负义’前公务员。




Sabah, Kota Kinabalu Internatinal Airport, KKIA sunlight heated passenger waiting gallery




The assistant Federal Transport minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri who is also the MP for Kudat commented on the request of the request of the KK MP Dr. Hiew King Cheu on the sunlight heated passenger waiting gallery, by saying that the sunlight is actually good for the human body because it produces Vitamin D.




The minister’s answer came with heavy fire and protest from the ladies who are constantly trying to protect their delicate skin and faces from the direct sunlight. The hot direct sun will cause much damage to their delicate skin like skin pigmentation, skin damage, and dry scaling. The sweating under the hot sun will cause uneasiness and discomfort, especially just ready to take a long flight.



As for the proposal by the KK MP Dr. Hiew to request the MAB to install some form of blinds or shedding device, Rahim said to shed the glass from the direct sunlight means more electricity consumption on indoor lighting. The minister’s argument was shot down by many engineers and architects. They said that by providing sheds or blinds to partly cut off the hot sunlight can bring about saving on air conditioning power loading. When compared to using more lighting in the waiting gallery if shaded, in fact there will be an energy saving.



The cost of providing some form of blinds and shed in the KKIA terminal will not cause a lot of money. Therefore for the sack of the travelers, it is advisable to install something for their comfort. This is especial so if we want an internal standard airport. In Amsterdam Internal Airport, the sun shed blinds are fully automatic, and will close or shut to certain level to meet the degree of sunlight cut off. There is no excessive indoor lighting needed. May be the Malaysian Airport (MAB) will study and learn more on the proposal and then advice the Minister on this issue? This is for general public interest and also for the reputation of the country.



The operation of the low cost carrier Air-Asia is to be moved from Terminal 2 to KKIA Terminal 1, most people would prefer the operation to remain where it is in the Tanjong Aru Terminal 2 for convenience sack. The travelers have also asked the MAB to look into the problem of traffic jam situation and serious lack of car parks during peak hours when several flights arrived there. Many had also complained on the taxi queue located in front the terminal main door which caused the jam, especially due to the double park situation.



Dr. Hiew suggested that the taxi queue should be moved back to the previous location opposite the main door on the other side of the road, to ease the situation of picking up and dropping off. There should be more car parking space created to accommodate the increasing car volume.

阳光照晒的亚庇国际机场候机室



联邦交通部副部长兼古达国会议员拿督拉辛巴克里针对亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士所提到有关阳光照晒的亚庇国际机场候机室问题,他回答说,太阳光对人体很有益因为太阳产生维他D。



副部长这样的回答遭受许多女士们的不满,认为他的说法不合理论。小姐妇女们常常不断地保护她们娇嫩的皮肤和面孔,免被阳光直接照射。 女士们也担心炎热的阳光直射后,会造成极大的损害,比如影响皮肤色素,黑斑和干燥等。 而且在烈日下,汗流浃背会引起不适,特别是准备长途的飞行。



至于邱庆洲博士所建议的,要求马来西亚机场公司设计安装一些百叶窗或垂帘遮阳形式的设备,拉辛说,阳光直接照射在玻璃窗上意味着该候机室有更多的照明。 副部长的观点被工程师和建筑师们反驳。 他们不赞成部长的说法,他们说其实通过提供百叶窗或垂帘,不但能抵挡炎热的阳光,同时节省空调能源。 这项节省比起部长所提的灯光节能,事实上将会节省更多能源。



建设百叶窗和遮阳垂帘在亚庇国际机场不会花费很多钱。 为了旅客和游客的舒适,应该尽快安装百叶窗或遮阳垂帘。 尤其是如果我们希望有一个国际标准的机场。 在阿姆斯特丹(Amsterdam)的机场内, 遮阳窗帘完全自动化的,可以自动关闭至某种程度,以防太阳直晒,根本不用很多的室内照明。 或许马来西亚机场公司(MAB)需要研究和了解有关的建议,然后才在向部长提议更有建设性的改进? 这也是为了公众利益和国家的声誉。



至于廉价航空的亚行必须从第二终站转移到亚庇国际机场第一终站,大部分的人民宁愿让亚行留在丹容亚路的第二终站运作,因为比较方便。 旅客也要求马来西亚机场公司能够尽快解决第二终站机场的交通拥堵和停车场严重不足的问题,尤其在繁忙的时间,当好几航班同时间抵达时。 许多人抱怨说在机场前面大门排队的德士,造成许多不便也造成交通堵塞。



邱博士建议,所有的机场德士应该转移到机场大门对面的道路前,以缓和接机和送机交通组赛情况。 此外当局应该建设更大的停车场,以应付日益增加的汽车流量
