From federal leaders’ (Peninsular Malaysia) point of view, Malaysia’s State of Sabah is but a fixed deposit State. Meaning put in one lump sum, let it alone to grow, comes back only when it matured.
Sabah, its original name was North Borneo declared independent from and by the British on 31st August 1963.
That 31st August 1963 supposedly the actual day of Malaysia’s Independent day, but not quite due to unfinished work in London, if it were to include Sabah and Sarawak it could only be declared independent on 16th September 1963.
In as far Sabah is concerned the actual taste of independent was this period from 31st August to 16th September 1963 i.e. all and all sixteen days.
Back why do leaders in Kuala Lumpur called Sabah the fixed deposit, the present Government of Barisan Nasional, especially leaders of UMNO, United Malay National Organisation use Sabah as manufacturing and germinating Malay genome, in other words, Malay race factory is in Sabah.
Creating Malays race means ensuring the control of the nation’s politics.
Increase the number of Malays would prolong the life and power of the Malay, as the Deputy Prime Minister Muhiddyn Yassin said, Malay first Malaysia second.
By the way the number of Malay race in Sabah in the 70s was only around 6% while today is around 68% or more.
Regardless the race and religion to a point, BN government is using Sabah to create more Malays by accepting as many as possible people from the two neighbouring countries namely, Philippines and Indonesia.
These people have been given real Malaysian identity card (MyKad) and so also bogus identity cards to enable them to vote in every nation’s General Election, tactics are varied in shapes and forms but the objective is to increase number of people to vote for UMNO, and other BN components.
The worst of all, the real people of Sabah are neglected; today World Bank reported that Sabah is the poorest state in Malaysia.
Never was Sabah the poorest, when it started in good stead known to be the wealthiest state to begin with, with abundant of natural resources. But it’s during the tenure of UMNO’s government that Sabah has made a name the poorest, while government’s politicians are among the richest. Shame.
