Exclusive – Taibs’ Foreign Property Portfolio

Exclusive – Taibs’ Foreign Property Portfolio

Canadian properties worth in excess of a hundred million dollars

Multi-million dollar complex

Multi-million dollar complex

Twin glass towers and a swish shopping complex at Preston Square in downtown Ottawa form just part of an enormous foreign property portfolio controlled in Canada by the family of Sarawak Chief Minister, Abdul Taib Mahmud, according to our exclusive investigations.

These buildings alone are worth at least one hundred million dollars and generate a healthy rental income from some of Canada’s top corporations, including Xerox, Adobe and Sun Life, who rent office space and retail outlets.  Numerous Canadian Government Ministries are also listed at the building.

Preston Square Ottawa – office space and shops

The Preston Square development lies at the centre of the major Canadian property empire run by the developer Sakto, which was founded in the early 1980s by Taib’s college-aged son Mahmud Abu Bekir Taib, his daughter Jamilah and his brother Onn Mahmud.  It continues to be managed as a ‘family business’ by his now son-in-law, a Canadian, Sean Murray.

Taxpayers in Sarawak are entitled to ask how the Chief Minister’s modest 20,000 Malaysian Ringgit a month official salary has managed to help generate a property empire worth so much.  It is also well known that the Taib family own further considerable assets in Malaysia and elsewhere.

Dozens more buildings in Canada alone

Adjacent to the Preston Square commercial complex, Sarawak Report has  further identified a luxury, multi-story residential building, also constructed by the Taibs and let for rent since 2006.  The family have named the building The Adelaide, an Australian city popular with Taib Mahmud and his late wife Laila.

Sakto publicity boasts that these  “stylish urban rentals are lavishly equipped” with “all the elements of contemporary flair” and assure clients that “all units share the ease of abundant parking and the beauty of Preston’s Square manicured setting”.

Arrogant Admission

We bring these revelations in the wake of the elderly Chief Minister’s admission last week that the Bumi remain “poor and in difficulty”.  In this way, he explained, they can be relied upon to stay “humble” and continue to vote for Barisan National (BN) at the next election.  Many in Sarawak have questioned why the Chief Minister has done so little to improve the lives of his people during his thirty years in power and where the profits of decades of timber and oil extraction have been spent.  Sarawak is Malaysia’s richest state in terms of natural resources and yet remains home to some of its poorest people.

Exclusive revelations show Canadian Government and top corporations rent from the Taibs

Top rents

Sakto Development Corporation was set up in August 1983, according to official Ontario records, two years after Taib Mahmud took power.  The Directors were Taib’s brother, Onn Mahmud, Taib’s son Mahmud Abu Bekir (aged just 20) and Taib’s daughter Jamilah, both still students.  Three months later Onn also established Richfold Investment Limited in Hong Kong.  He did so on the same day that another company, Regent Star Company Limited, was incorporated with a mutual director, Kin Kwok Shea, at the same office address.  It was Regent Star Company which was identified by the Japanese Tax Authorities in 2007 as having received 32 million Malaysian Ringgit in kickbacks from Japanese timber exporters over the preceding seven years covered by their investigation. The   Japanese shipping cartel is known to have been making such payments since the early 1980s, amounting to a total of hundreds of millions of ringgit.

Impressive Investments

Sakto publicity claimed the company invested heavily in its first year(1983), “acquiring over 400 residential units” according to its previous website.

One of the Taib residential properties

Financial records also show that the company invested over $7 million Canadian Dollars during the first twelve months of its activities, $4.5 million of which was raised from its shareholders. In Canada shareholders are allowed to remain anonymous.  By the end of its first decade (in 1993) Sakto’s Financial Report shows the company had assets of just under $40 million Canadian Dollars.  Those acquisitions were backed by over $25 million in interest-free shareholder loans, for which “repayment terms had not been established”.  Additionally, Sakto had received a further $3 million in non-interest bearing loans, $1.5 million of which was “payable to a company related to a shareholder”.   Among the developments Sakto invested in was the construction of what the company described as a “Class A Office Tower”, completed on schedule and within budget in November 1989.  Known as 333 Preston Street, this building houses the company’s current headquarters.

Sakto Financial Report 1993

Aquired in 2000 - Government Offices

During the 1990s, the company claims it “continued shaping [its] property portfolio through acquisitions and disposals of various assets” and since 2000 it has been involved in some of Ottawa’s biggest property deals.  These  included the news making purchase of over a quarter of a million square feet of commercial space in the flourishing high-tech business district of Kanata and other buildings for over $31 million Canadian Dollars.   Much of this property was later sold on to a ‘nominee’ company,  however Sakto continues to lease and manage the buildings, apparently on behalf of the new purchasers.

Getting Bigger – Commercial Plaza Expansion

The company has recently completed the building of a second phase of its Preston Street Commerce Plaza complex, which includes a second 16 story tower block and a large commercial centre.  The Sakto website boasts that the centre represents “the very definition of Class A business space”.

Uncle Onn Mahmud (Taib's brother) Directed the company with Jamilah until 2004

Sean Murray, the current Director of Sakto, is a Canadian of Irish Catholic extraction.  Records show he became involved in Sakto’s affairs in 1987, having reportedly met Jamilah Taib at University.  After marrying Jamilah, a process that involved his conversion to Islam, Sean Murray took over as a Director of a number of the Taib property interests, however there is no indication that he has become an actual shareholder.  Mahmud Abu Bekir Taib ceased to be listed as a Director of Sakto some years ago, however Onn Mahmud, Taib’s brother only resigned as a Director in 2004.

Aged 23 Jamilah Taib became Director of Sakto Development Corporation (between studies) then President

Society Family

A number of Sean Murray’s family members are now employed at Sakto, which they describe as a family business. Some of Canada’s biggest commercial names rent space at their commercial and office properties, as well as numerous  Canadian Government Ministries.   Now prominent members

Major Shopping Mall – includes Chapters Bookstore

of Ottawa’s social elite, Sean Murray and Jamilah Taib are frequently photographed at society occasions and listed as  donors to the city’s National Gallery of Canada.  Functions at their lavish Rockcliffe mansion have included fundraisers for the top Canadian school, Ashbury College and for multiple Irish charities, including the Catholic St Patrick’s Home and the Ireland Fund of Canada.

The couple drew considerable attention when they recently moved into their new house, recorded as being the second most expensive private home in Ottawa and costing them over $9.6 million Canadian Dollars. Guests have been known to joke that it is so vast that different wings must have different post codes.

Sean and Jamilah - Ottawa's Golden Couple

Political Connections

 

 

The couple, separately and through Sakto, have also been regular donors to the Ontario Liberal Party.  This has included contributions totalling $6,000 to Premiere Dalton Mcguinty’s  campaign budget in 2003.  In 2007 it was announced that eleven Ontario Ministries were relocating into Sakto’s Preston Square building.  “Bringing together 11 ministries at Preston Square, in the heart of our community, will make our government more accessible to the people of Ottawa and more cost-effective”, explained Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre.  The offices were officially opened by Dalton Mcguinty himself in April 2008.

From trees to tower blocks

Sarawak Report’s exclusive revelations are likely to draw fierce criticism from Canadian environmentalists and human rights campaigners, who have highlighted the devastation caused by unsustainable logging in Sarawak.  Over US$25 billion worth of timber has been exported from the state as a result of the rampant, unsustainable logging promoted by Taib Mahmud and the former Chief Minister, who was his uncle.  Less than 3% of the original rainforest remains and many of its indigenous peoples are now destitute as a direct result.

High-Tech - another Sakto acquisition

What is now clear is that Sakto’s position as one of Canada’s top development companies is closely linked to the Taib family’s questionable wealth and to tropical rainforest devastation.  Canada’s booming property market of past years has exponentially increased the value of those investments, leaving the Taibs (but not the people of Sarawak) even more fabulously wealthy than before.

        good opinion…the head of the richest is that b*******

  • ping jiang

    Taib is not responsible. Those responsible are the VOTERS who knowingly or innocently voted the BN to power. The reasons for BN holding power there are;

    -voting is manipulate-able assisted by another party the EC

    -constituents are unbalance in terms of voters no. You will find urban seats have twice or thrice the no. of voters in rural seats

    -there are business groups in Sarawak for their selfish interests supported BN so that they will in turn get the favours when contracts are awarded

    -BN component parties (all the younger brother parties )who are not courageous enough to make a change as they are also given perks to shutup and stay status-quo.You can easily find huge properties/businesses owned by the leaders of these component parties in main cities of malaysia and overseas. Why they want to give these up?

    -poor facilities and infrastructures where population do not have access to info fast.Key issues are not known to them

    -federal govt happy to stay quiet as sabah/sarawak are their safe states-why kill the golden geese?

    The only way is for voters to make a change with help of political parties members to create the awareness.BN will not change the system that is not in their favour only vice-versa.

    • donny cassedy

      What u said is perfect.AS a tax payer, We have been wasted for 29 years. Inreturn what do we get? Our development is far behind, how many fly over do we have in Sarawak? how many good road? Why don't we just waste 5 years only(5 years only) for another party to form the goverment? Within that 5 years we open our eyes widely and see how is their outcome and performence.After that we make our final decision.

      To all Sarawakian now is the right time for us to wake up and open our eyes widely. Don't waste another 29 years.

      • Singfish

        Cassedy, I fully agree with you, give another blokes a 5 year contract, see how they performed and we will decides..they stay or the door.

        We all know the white hair baboon sold his soul to the devil(pact with the devils).

    • chacha

      I totally agree with your comments. Sarawak has the WORST ROAD in Malaysia. If we are under Sabah, for sure there are roads access to Song, Kapit and Belaga and yet people want to vote for these………people.

      • danny

        I agreed comment one of comentator here. One issue I would like to comment is Sarawak road network is the WORST EVER IN MALAYSIA compare to Sabah we are far behind. Just touch on Borneo Highway which connected from Miri to Kuching. The worst link is between Bintulu-Sibu. I am regular user for the past 10 years. No any improvement for this Bintulu-Sibu. Even before our PM promise to give special fund for road /highway in sarawak! Where is the money? We are tax payer forced to pay thru salary deduction & where is the money??? We have no channel to voiced out our dissatisfaction…the Wakil Rakyat should hear listen to ours. The other issues like banjir kilat/poor family is small issue.

    • Stanley

      I agree with u. The people who support them is the person responsible. Like people of Baligian, Taib area also his son area. Baligian voters only 15K but Sarawak people millions. So no majority vote Taib and family.

      We need to campaign more on this to those people over Sarawak. Taib and family to go down. Don't let this happen like Egypt and Libya. Can happen that way.

      YB's, and all the wakil rakyat we vote also responsible. They shall not let Taib up as CM.

    • chucknorris

      mungkin SPRM tidak bertindak kerana kena rantai, mungkin najib tak bersuara sebab periuk nasi BN untuk berkuasa, namun kita rakyat sarawak tak kira iban, cina, melayu, bidayuh, kenyah, kayan, kelabit, melanau dan lain-lain harus bersatu menentang TAIB dan keluarganya….

      BN memang perlu berkuasa untuk kestabilan….tetapi puncuk pimpinan dan perompak2 dalm BN harus dihapuskan…

      Bersatu semua singkirkan TAIB dan keluarganya yang merompak sarawak serta sumbatkan mereka dalam penjara…kita jangan halau dia keluar negara kerana dia hidup mewah dengan hartanya yang diluar sana….

      sebarkan semua maklumat yang kita ada dan tahu kepada semua rakyat sarawak…secara menyeluruh melalui internet, email, surat, beritau kawan saudara, dan semua cara yang ada asalkan sampai kepada semua….

      dan pesan kepada pengundi baligian serta kawasan 2 kroni taib untuk menumbangkan mereka….

      BERSATU 1 SARAWAK…..

      bukan 1 Malaysia…sebab orang semenanjung tak ambil peduli pun…….

      TENTANG TAIB…HABIS-HABISAN…

    • http://eddc Jugam Toroi

      Agree with your remark.All representatives in ruling parties are enjoying the perks and have no reason for a change. The change should come from the people during the voting. Still many voted for them. More so those who are directly affected by the BN cronies and partners, still vote for them. Even those been chopped of home still vote for them. Too in love with BN and willing to die for BN.This is the change!

      Nevermind, if our people can't change for good now, make it 100years down the road. Remember, Sarawak is the goose and the eggs are all elswhere outside the State. If the goose die, the indeginous die. This is just what the BN wants.

  • mohd rafee

    As far as i can think, this illicit rampant misuse of public money by politicians who had been given absolute power is not new. This will go on for ages and down generations if the voters are not educated and shown some solid evidences of public funds misuse by these unscrupulous politians. An aggresive awareness campaign ought to be intiatiated to showcase this form of discrepancies at the top level. Ballot box is the deciding factor in fighting graft cases.

      As long as the Sarawakian continue to vote the BN, all these will continue to happen for the rest of the time until… we are prepare to change…. Isn't it time for the change?

    My good lord. I think the Sarawak Report being and trying to be FRANK and do good reporting has been doing unfair to the masses. SR reported that Sulaiman was spoted in London was a crap… he is in Canada and last few days i SAW HIM in Singapore…WHAT A CRAP? Taib Mahmud was claimed to fly "not long after his Singapore Airlines flight touched down in Heathrow" and seen was London before going for Haj is a BIG lie. I AM A CIVIL SERVANT FROM A IMPORTANT MINISTRY WHO IS ASSESSED TO MOVEMENTS OF VVIP FOR SECURUTY REASONS VOUCHED THAT sr REPORTING ON TAIB IN LONDON IS A BIG LIE. I, IN AS MUCH AS IMPRESSED BY SR REPORTING ALL THIS WHILE…FOUND OUT THAT APART FROM FACTUAL LOCATION OF TAIB PROPERTIES AND INVESTMENT (MAYBE), THE REST ARE MERE SLANDERS AND LIES TO DISCREDIT AND PREJUDICE AND HATRED OF A PERSON FOR POLITICAL GAINS AND SELF SATISFACTION.THOUSANDS MAY BELIEVE YOU, BUT THIS SORT OF REPORTING WILL MAKE ANY RESONABLE LEVEL HEADED PERSON TO THINK TWICE ON YOUR MOTIVE AND OBJECTIVE. IF YOU ARE SINCERE ABOUT THE PLIGHT OF YOUR SARAWAKIAN PEOPLE, BE A TRUE OPPOSITION POLITICIAN AND BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AT LARGE TO EXPOSE ALL YOUR ALLEGATION FOR YOUR LEGAL SYSTEM TO TAKE HEED. YOUR ARE DISCRIMINATING YOUR OWN NATION WITH OUT THE GUTS TO FIGHT IT OUT IN THE OPEN ARENA AS A GENTLEMAN.

    • singfish

      Hello Doomers how are you geting on..keeping well I suppossed! I'm an Iban abroad, lets put it plain and simple, If taib (the white hair baboon)holds a post as a senior minister in europe,he'll be locked away. His shelve life as a minister would be if he is lucky enough could be 2 years all will be exposed. It would be next to impossible to even dare to dream of building a multi billion dollar empire and at the same time running a state or nation without being UNDER scrutiny, investigated and attracting watchfull eyes. SR have done their part in exposing these shenanigans of taib and cronies. SR probably have their own political motives and agendas,That's fine.

      They're not the 'white hair baboon' security guy, so it can be explained away as to why them tracking the baboon on a secret 'Official mission' so tough and subject to inaccuracies. That will stop if there is transparencies or if one of these days SR manage to shove a GPS in the baboon's arse Tracking his whereabout, 'hunting him down'.Pls excuse my choice of words. So with these the issue of misleading reports of his movement should not be raised in the first place,IRRELEVANT.SR does'nt have to challenge/accept or fight taib and cronies on a level playing field if there's any, why? There are no gentlemen in the ruling coalition parties they will succumbs to dirty tricks and sure we all know that all too well.Taib do have to expose and MAYBE share the plunders and what's in the treasure chest to every sarawak's blood who roams every blade of grass from all corners of Sarawak Borneo. Afterall that was his civil and moral duty and what he promised, not just to offer RM600 ngagai tiap2 pintu ngulih ke ia menang. SHOCKINGLY BAD AND IMMORAL,SCANDALOUS! BRIBERY of the highest degree.BIG BULLY BAD BOY BABOON.Whatever left of the oldest virgin rainforest the world has ever seen remains to be seen.Forest natives being starved to death and pushed to breaking point.The wildlife and everything that dwells in it will all perish is that what taib want.I have no doubt the gods of the forrest will come down hard on taib and cronies.

      'WHEN THERE'S NO MORE FISH IN OUR RIVERS..YOU TELL US WHAT'S ON THE PLATE FOR THE CROCS' You're the security guy!

      The spirits of our great ancestors, the sengalang burung will rise high above the sky…and save us from these certain oblivions and destructions.For now we just have to choose between a rock or hard place, that's alright with us we're tough .Soon taib and cronies will find themselves between a hammer and an anvil.THIS I BELIEVE!

  • imam frustrated

    SAYA BERSERU KEPADA SEMUA ORANG SARAWAK,KALAU TAIB MENANG KALI INI SUDAH LAH MIMPI PILIHANRAYA ADALAH CARA BERKESAN PAKAI CARA ORANG MESIR DAN YEMEN.

    BIAR MATI MATILAH TAPI BANGSA MASA DEPAN DAPAT DI BAGUNKAN LAGI DAN TAK ADA YANG BERANI MENINDAS ORG SARAWAK,TAPI KALAU MACAM INI ORG UMNO,TUNGGU MASA BUAT KITA MACAM SABAH,K.M PATUNG,ADA GALIRAN SETIAP 3TAHUN.

    BANGKITLAH SARAWAK SEMUA,JANGAN DIPERBODOHKAN LAGI.BUAT MASA INI SEMUA YANG KETUK SAYA AKAN DI KETUK BALIK OLEH TAIB.SEBAB SECARA TIDAK LANGSUNG KAMU SEMUA MAHU DIA JADI K.M,KERANA PERCAYA PADA PILIHANRAYA SISTEM YANG SUDAH TIDAK BERKESAN DAN MAINAN TAIB.

    Great site exposing the truth about the coruption of
    this scum. This just prove what many have suspected all
    these years the extent of corruption by the scum’s family
    and cronies.I would suggest that maybe other alternate
    language like iban , malay language to be set up for other
    native sarawakians to understand what is happening.

  • Mohd Khushairi Abdul

    We must take out our hat to Taib for making it right to the top in terms of wealth accumulation. Shabash to a Bumi. I bet you if a Chinaman gets that opportuniyu, he will do the same and maybe even worse. So what's the BIG DEAL or the FUSS?. You cannot do much anyway. You think you can get back his wealth. That would be unlawful. Who is to take action anyway? The MACC! ? You are JOKING. For all you know the key people in MACC are on his PAYROLL!!. Dont waste time. You all are stupid. You can only talk and make comment. If you are SMART you should have DONE Better than Taib Right?!. So go and continue doing what you know best, Flying kites! Fishing or Gallavanting along the riverine in Sarawak. Your call

      Everyone LOVE Taib and BN. Proven since Sarawak Joined Malaya. Keep it up. Hidup Taib/BN!

    Being a representative chosen by people and could grow to be super rich. I also want to be a politician lah!

  • TT

    For what purpose to investigate friends? Same gang and in same sampan (boat). You eat money well in Sarawak, I eat in peninsular Msia. We are same members in Barisan Nasional lah.

  • emma

    i'm a west mlysian… i used to stay in kch for over 15 years.meaning i hav spent my chilhood n teenage years there. i'v experienced a lot of things when i was in swk. i can c clearly that the sarawakian(esp the malays) kinda hate west malaysian.. i wonder y? the ibanese r ok… but not the malays. if they hate us bcoz of they r jealous on our development..they r totally wrong.. look who actually made srwkian left far behind?

  • chucknorris

    mungkin SPRM tidak bertindak kerana kena rantai, mungkin najib tak bersuara sebab periuk nasi BN untuk berkuasa, namun kita rakyat sarawak tak kira iban, cina, melayu, bidayuh, kenyah, kayan, kelabit, melanau dan lain-lain harus bersatu menentang TAIB dan keluarganya….

    BN memang perlu berkuasa untuk kestabilan….tetapi puncuk pimpinan dan perompak2 dalm BN harus dihapuskan…

    Bersatu semua singkirkan TAIB dan keluarganya yang merompak sarawak serta sumbatkan mereka dalam penjara…kita jangan halau dia keluar negara kerana dia hidup mewah dengan hartanya yang diluar sana….

    sebarkan semua maklumat yang kita ada dan tahu kepada semua rakyat sarawak…secara menyeluruh melalui internet, email, surat, beritau kawan saudara, dan semua cara yang ada asalkan sampai kepada semua….

    dan pesan kepada pengundi baligian serta kawasan 2 kroni taib untuk menumbangkan mereka….

    BERSATU 1 SARAWAK…..

    bukan 1 Malaysia…sebab orang semenanjung tak ambil peduli pun…….

    TENTANG TAIB…HABIS-HABISAN…

    All these assets whether they be in Canada or USA are not beyond the reach of the Sarawak people. In the USA there is an obscure law called the Alien Tort Statute. Basically, this law has been used by citizens of a foreign country to sue, say, a deposed dictator of the said country IN THE USA. All sorts of crimes have been tried under this Statute, eg., genocide, human rights abuse, environmental degradation, CORRUPTION (which is applicable in this case), etc. The list of wrongdoing that can be claimed under this law is very wide. If the Sarawakian Govt under Pakatan brings this case to court in the USA, and wins, then all Taib's assets, whether they are in USA, Canada, Monaco, or wherever will be frozen. That's billions of $$$$ in bonus for the citizens of Sarawak. We won't need the MACC after this.

    But to put all that in motion you Sarawakians have to take the first step – vote out BN.

  • justice

    to all sarawakians,do something,pass the word around to vote BN out,it is the only way to remove all the corrupted leaders,it is heart breaking to know that the forest in sarawak is only 3% left.

  • honbilhunter

    apa kemajuan yg ada di swak? tengok jalanraya KCH to Miri? ada kemajuan? tampal lubang adalah!!

    Jalanraya Kch to Miri tak layak dipanggil highway, itu jalan kampong!! for the past 30yrs cant even built "good" roads linking Kch all the way to Miri. Kemajuan ka itu? Yang besarnya banglo banglo keluarga CM tu lah yg ada di merata rata tempat, ada yg tak diduduki pun sebab terlalu banyak. Kosnya pula berjuta juta tapi kos untuk bina jalanray Kch/miri i think not even reach one million.

    Semenanjung politician…go to Sarawak and go drive yourself all the way from kch to miri, it will take you a hell of a journey!! Jangan cakap pasal kemajuan di S'wak. Dont fly by helicopter go and drive, then you will be able to see and feel it by yourself!!! itu jalanray zaman pemerintahan jepun dulu. By right after 50yrs of independant,S'wak should also have Railway train linking Kch all the way to Sabah. Barulah ada sikit kemajuan!!

  • poor sarawak

    taib smakin gembira sbb dia kmbli mmerintah sma dgn kroni2 ny.. aiyaa.. BERUBAHLAH!

  • Hassan Ali

    Hati dan perasaan memang sangat benci dengan Pak Baboon kepala putih tu serta keluarganya. Kahwin dengan mat salleh guna untuk menjaga berbillion harta mereka di luar negara. Mengapa PM dan BPR diam-diam?. Kalau orang biasa habis dingap mereka.saya tuk tau berdoa aja supaya Keluarga Baboon putih tu diturunkan bencana besar kepada semua keluarganya termasuk dirinya. Taib jangan mati dulu, biar Tuhan menghukumnya puas-puas supaya rakyat tahu Tuhan itu adil.Beliau makin mendongak ke atas setelah menang majoriti dan tambah pula berkempit dengan isteri baru tu, makin lawa.Dapat sik nya muas pompuan tu. Sebenarnya pake ngabis harta rakyat aja.

  • imam frustrated

    hidup taib…..lagi cakap je lebih di blogg ni.

  • Barbarian swak

    Hello YB Bian…..if you had enough evidence related to our CM why not you just bring the case to court for Legal process. I assured you to TLDM Talk Less do more.Furthermore you are a lawyer…and ofcourse you know better than us outside here.

    Thanks

    • Mansasau Kuching

      So Jika nak kaya…….belajarlah seperti CM kita. Jika kita asyik dengki dengan prestasi orang lain sedangkan kita masih berpeluk tubuh sampai kiamat pun nasib seseorang tidak akan berubah.

      Kalau dah nak kaya macam Taib belajar dari Taibmacamana nak menjadi seorang businessman. Ini asyik nak kutuk aje sampai bila pun macam tu juga .Tengok orang senang kita dengki/dendam apalah manusia. Cuba bandingkan pada zaman enam puluhan dengan sekarang banyak perubahan telah berlaku. Jangan asyik nak fikir yang jahat sahaja tapi fikirkan juga apa yang telah beliau buat untuk sarawak selama ini. Renung renungkan lah. Kita diberi tuhan Akala dan Fikiran gunakanlah dengan sebaik2 nya.

    Majority of Sarawakian voted for BN, they wanted to be poor and marginalized but why complain now? They government would have changed to PR if not for Sabah and Sarawak. When are you folks going to wake up?

    Sarawak should have joined Singapore in 1963.

  • Anak Kenyalang

    SRW sepatutya merdeka sebagai sebuah negara dgn tidak menyertai Malaysia pada tahun 1963. tapi, apa boleh buat nasi dah jd bubur.. teruskan hidup aje le.. ada duit berhijrah le ke negara lain..kalau nak berubah.. berubah dari diri anda dan seterusnya ke keluarga anda. x plu di gembar gemburkan disana sini. yg sudah tu dijadikan pengajaran. apa yang SR dedahkan adalah satu informasi yang berguna kepada kita untuk dikongsikan dengan keluarga kita n kwn karib kita di kampung mahupun di rumah panjang. dgn izin Tuhan, pilihan raya akan datang BN dan kroninya bakal lingkup. hidup 1 srwak kenyalang.
