“Bidayuhs Rejoices on News”

My brother in law received an sms,” We have a State Minister in Michael Manyin,Assistant Minister In Peter Nansian and now we have a Deputy Federal Minister in James Dawos. What else can our race ask for? The Bidayuhs up and down the country must be rejoicing and we thank God for a Belated Christmas Present. The groundswell of dissatisfaction on being left out and overlooked in positions and postings has paid dividends. Sometimes it does pay to make a little noise here and there and our Bidayuh leaders must be commended.

The full report from an internet portal Malaysiakini Mambong member of parliament Dr James Dawos Mamit has been named by the prime minister as the new deputy tourism minister to replace Sulaiman Abdul Taib who resigned recently.

James Dawos MamitMamit, 61, will be sworn in as the deputy minister on Jan 13, said a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office.

Mamit, a Bidayuh, is a supreme council member of the Sarawak-based Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB).

Yesterday Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud said that the vacant post must be filled by someone from his party, PBB, adding that he had submitted a name to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak

Sulaiman, 41, who is also PBB Youth vice-chief, was appointed deputy tourism minister on March 19, 2008, when Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was the prime minister and retained the post when Najib took over as prime minister in April last year.

However, he resigned recently for health reasons.

There have been speculations that Abdul Taib is planning to contest his son at the next Sarawak state election, due by 2011, and begin grooming him as a possible successor.

There were also rumours that Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin, who was overlooked by Najib when he named his cabinet eight months ago, be picked as a minister in a minor reshuffle hastened by Sulaiman’s resignation.”

“It is indeed a Joyous and Memorable day for all Bidayuhs around the country” Our congratulations from audie61 to the New Deputy Tourism Minister . Make us proud…

    Why are we still rumbling about 1Bidayuh here and another there and rejoicing about what position they hold if ever we are serious about 1Malaysia where there is only one race known as Malaysian. Should there not be 1BN as well and why is UMNO excluding all its coalition partners when launching a 1UMNO program to showcase its “achievements” recently??? Time to finish off this corrupt regime and elect a new government for Petra Jaya and Putra Jaya.

    After reading what the BN self appointed PM , Najib and his cousin Home Minister, Hishamudin had said about Muslims having the right to protest against the recent court ruling on the use of the word Allah, I feel compelled to urge all Bidayuh to gather at the central padang and water front to rejoice the appointment of James Dawos as a deputy federal minister and the court ruling allowing christian to use Allah when preaching in BM. The 1Malaysia culture allows both protests and celebrations. Go for it guys while it lasts. God is great and HE has divine way to deal with a non repenting sinner. Najib and not forgetting Taib as well will continue to make more blunders and cause his own self destruction and downfall. Thanks be to God.
