Malaya Elusive Co-operation part 4 of 6

Continuation of Distortion of History ……

Instead of working together to benefit Malaysia, Malaya wants to take over Sabah – mind and body.  This condescending attitude and colonizing the mind, that Sabahans by implication are unreliable and untrustworthy.  Even the Sabah Malays is only good as peons, only orang Malaya can do it.

All these are against the Malaysian spirit and form.  Sabah is not subject to Malaya directions, Sabah and Malaya was to work together as partners to build the nation.  None is more superior to the Constitution of the Nation, yet Malaya denied Sabah and Sarawak the Constitution because it was manipulated as such.

After independence in 1963, there was a 10-year moratorium to the Malaysian Constitution.  Yet during this time, Malaya made changes to the Constitution, which in effect made Sabah one of the states in Malaysia and not its partner in nation building.

The late Tun Mustapha made his frustration plain; there are many examples of this include the setting up of the first TV station in Sabah.  The state government has to come up with the land and the money to set it up.  Malaya was supposed to reimburse Sabah.

The antics by Malaya obviously create tension between Sabah and Malaya.  To the late Tun Mustapha, Sabah had no choice but to go international to circumvent constraints imposed by Malaya.  This is further encouraged by his confidant the late Syed Kecik.  The late Tun did not realize Malaya would subsequently use his international trips as a means to demonize him.  The sad thing is that the majority of Sabahan agrees.

The moratorium expires in 1973, by that time Malaya has successfully made changes to the Malaysian Constitution, demonizes the late Tun Mustapha as the highflying jet setting Chief Minister, and who was in the verge of taking Sabah out of Malaysia.  Tan Sri Herman Luping vindicated the late Tun Mustapha on these issues but decades too late.  It can only serve as reminder to Sabahans to day not to let their minds be colonized by Malaya.

These accusations legitimize and justify the takeover by BERJAYA in 1976.  With a lot of help from Malaya specifically UMNO.  The late Tun Fuad who led BERJAYA was the same person exiled by Malaya as High Commissioner to Australia.  Pitiful is it not?

The real target was not changes in Sabah politics and government and taking the late Tun Mustapha out of the political equation.  The target was to get the Sabah oil and gas.

Tengku Razaleigh confirmed this during his public speaking in Kota Kinabalu recently.  He narrated how the late Tun Razak had a discussion with him on how to find new sources of FUND for Malaysia.  This prompted him to draft the Petroleum Development Act as the precursor to establishing PETRONAS.

Petroleum Sharing Agreement (PSA) signed by Shell Petroleum and its host country is the same.  The rate and the amount that is to be apportioning between upstream and downstream activities is the same.  Sabah has to give up its 40% shares so that the rest of Malaysia specifically Malaya can live in luxury.

Goods in Sabah cannot even have the same price as in Kuala Lumpur.  The food we eat is more expensive than Kuala Lumpur and the house we stay in is more expensive than in Kuala Lumpur.  Even the electricity is not as reliable as in Kuala Lumpur.  Therefore, is it not obvious Malaysia is for Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak is to bear the cost for them?

Therefore my dear Sabahan, the next time you sing Negaraku, just sing it in your heart.  When they ask you to sing Sabah Tanah Airku, then sing it at the top of your voice with full commitment.

 Sabah tanah airku,

Negeri kita yang tercinta,

Pemuda Pemudi semua marilah,

Bangunlah bersatu semua,

Marilah bersama serta maju jaya,

Merdeka sepanjang masa,

Bersatu segala bangsa sentosa,

Sabah Negeri Merdeka !!!

Have you ever wondered why we are independent minded?  Just look at the words in the state anthem.  The lyrics are the Saban DNA, it is our strength, and who we are.  That is why we Sabahans are race and religion blind; we have been brought up that way.

      Sorry I have worse words to use but it may not be appropriate to the children

    We have to define what a peon is, which is someone who cannot think for themselves and has to be told what to do. Very true that there are Sabahans being “appointed” in all the nice jobs. But can they think for themselves or a little bit for Sabahans? Simple things, after 27 years we still have cabotage policy. For all their powers and position they cannot resolve a simple thing like cabotage policy. They can sit in the Cabinet and decide to purchase the North South Highway for RM50 billion, they cannot get RM1 billion to buy 5 huge ships? So do they deserve the positions given??
    Its just to pacify Sabahans but not solving our problems.

    Bro, does this mean that Malaya has been laying to us all these while. They really develop Malaya but Sabah and Sarawak stand to lose a lot. In addition to our oil being taken, our palm oil being taken we have to subsidise them because the prices of goods in Kota Kinabalu is higher than KL. What kind of Federation is this? that Malaya is discriminating against the people in Sabah and Sarawak. Is the people in Sabah and Sarawak not Malaysian?

    • sifusiber says:

      No they are not laying to us, they show KL develop to our elders so what they are doing now is to develop KL further. This is the best kind of Federation because we deserve it. How many Sabahan is willing to change or want to change. I can tell you not many Everybody is scared to comment just because of that. They prefer to just stand and watch, if things change good, if it doesn’t its ok.
      They are still in delusion because their minds have been colonised. We are just scapegoats.
      Now will the Sabahans start to stand up and be counted as Malaysians?

    Sifu, we have a Sabahan as Chief Minister, that is not a peon. We also have other Ministers sitting in the Federal Cabinet. That is not a peon. How can you call them peon when they are holding all these high posts.
