DAP Advisor and veteran leader Sdra YB Lim Kit Siang visited Kalabakan district today 2nd May 2010. Other leaders who accompanied him were Sri Tanjung ADUN YB Jimmy Wong, YB Teo Nie Ching (MP Serdang), YB Senator Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim (DAP Deputy Chairman), Sabah DAP Publicity Secretary Dr. Edwin Bosi, Deputy Publicity Secretary John Lee, committee member Peter Liew and PAS Chief for Tawau Sdra Mohd Hassan.
Sdra Lim Kit Siang and entourage first had a lunch meeting with about 50 villagers from Kg. Murut, Kalabakan. The villagers informed YB Lim that they will soon become landless if their land applications are not processed and approved to them. They claimed that big and well-connected companies are taking away their land.
YB Lim told them that the land issue is the main problem facing the Natives in Sabah. He informed them that he will raise this issue in the next Parliamentary sitting. He told the villagers that he has already inform all Malaysians and the whole world about the problem facing the Natives of Sabah via twitters. He said he really sympathies with them and called on them to change the government. Only a Pakatan Rakyat government will give you a better future including your children, he added.


 



Sdra Lim Kit Siang then checked on the Sapulut-Kalabakan highway. He was disappointed that the road is yet to be sealed despite the huge amount of money been paid to the contractor.

He also toured Kalabakan town. He met many people who practically poured their problems to him. A woman who manages a small stall told him that Kalabakan needs a hospital urgently. She talked about the no water supply and the expensive meter if one wants to connect electricity. She lamented that paying more than a thousand ringgit for a meter is beyond her reach.

Later, YB Lim Kit Siang and his entourage visited the “Tugu Peringatan” which commemorates our Malaysian soldiers and local inhabitants who died in defence against the invasion of Indonesia on 29th December 1963.

林吉祥一行人首先前往加拉巴干甘榜姆鲁(Kg. Murut, Kalabakan)与五十多位村民会面和午餐。 村民告诉林氏说,他们很快没有地方住,如果政府不为他们处理和批准土地给他们。 他们说有一家大公司正在收购并夺取他们祖先的土地。

林吉祥告诉他们说,沙巴州的土著族群一直以来都面对土地的问题。他告诉他们说,他会在下一次的国会里提出该项问题。  林氏也告诉村民说,他已经透过网络知会所有马来西亚人和全世界的人有关沙巴土著面对的问题。 他说,他很同情他们,同时他呼吁他们必须要换政府,土地的问题才能够全面获得解决。 而且只有民联政府才能给沙巴人一个更美好的将来。

林吉祥然后前往视察沙布鲁-加拉巴干公路(Sapulut-Kalabakan)。 他感到非常失望尽管当局付了巨额资金给承包商,但是该段道路仍然需要维修和提升。

林氏还视察加拉巴干镇,并且会见了当地人,并听取他们的问题。 其中有一位经营小摊的妇女告诉林氏说,加拉巴干迫切需要一间医疗所。她也提到该处没有水供,如果想要连接电源就必须支付昂贵的费用。她叹道,要支付约马币 一千的费用已远超出她的经济能力。

之后他们前往参观当地的一处纪念碑‘Tugu Peringatan’,那是为了纪念马来西亚士兵和当地土著在1933年12月29日,反抗印尼入侵本地而阵亡的纪念碑。
