Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Rural Development Alfred Jabu Anak Numpang may have put his foot in his mouth by attempting to make fun of PKR’s Batu Lintang assemblyperson See Chee How.

In the winding up debate on the Land Code (Amendment) Bill 2014 today and replying to points raised by See, Jabu ridiculed the PKR man for saying that the “natives are part of the land as are the trees, mountains, hills, animals, fishes and rivers”.

He took exception to such a statement and slammed See for linking the natives with animals.

The statement in question was as follows: ”These NCR (native customary rights) claims should be looked at with the concept that the natives are part of the land as are the trees, mountains, hills, animals, fishes and rivers. My basis for saying this is simple. Prior to the arrival of the white settlement there was no system of land ownership as we have now”.

But See (left) pointed out the statement was made by Justice David Wong in the case of Agi Ak Bungkong. Wong is now a judge in the Court of Appeal.

“The Chief Justice of Sabah and Sarawak, Richard Melanjun, repeated and agreed with the statement in the case of Bisi anak Jinggot.

“I quoted the statement in my speech. It is not my statement,” See emphasised, pointing out that the deputy chief minister was barking up the wrong tree.

“Jabu might be thinking that he is clever, but I think he is very confused and unintelligent to not understand the statement.

“To a certain extent Jabu is showing contempt by making his own interpretation on the statements made by the judge of the Court of Appeal and the chief justice of Sabah and Sarawak, even if he made the condemnation at the state assembly,” See pointed out.

Given the chance, See added he would tell the chief justice what Jabu had said about his statement that was made in court.

  1. Jabu made his millions by squeezing his balls each time he walked in the presence of Taib Muhmud, the most corrupted thief minister Sarawak ever had and one of the richest man inthe world despite the fact that Sarawak has been ranked the second poorest state in Malaysia.

    • Ha ha ha.. who knew indeed, But then this guy made his millions from being a Dayak elected representative and he don’t even know that! He still keep on berating, pushing and cajoling his own kind to accept bn’s, taib’s, cm’s, pbb’s and his own wills for the dayaks to relinquish their lands and property to others especially the oil palm plantations and timber tycoons to create more riches and wealth for themselves. Mahathir was right about one thing, these tycoons and their bn elected representatives friends are already rich but why are they still cutting down the trees and clearing lands for plantations thus further depriving the dayaks of their forest, lands and rivers?

      Doesn’t jabu knows that the natives Dayaks were the ones who cared for the tress until they are hundreds of years old, took care of the rivers lest they become polluted, named the mountains and hills because the meant and represented some meaning to them? After all the caring and nurturing by the natives, come the greedy politicians and Chinese tycoons to chop, clear pollute at will and left nothing for the natives. Why lah jabu you let that happen to your own people?

      Maybe GREED is the answer and you are GUILTY of that!
