Sad to hear that a Iban like Jabu is so "kolot" and wanna to scare even his own people to remain in power and become Taib bastard follower to his death! He thinks that the Iban are so stupid like him to believe all this nonsense and probably that gentleman just died of a disease because neglect by the BN government in providing healthcare in the longhouse!
Every kampung in West Malaysia had a Klinik Desa but the Iban had to travel hours and days to seek treatment and left to died like flies because Jabu corrupt all the money and sent his families for vacation in overseas. Taib even don't trust the doctors in Sarawak for a simple checkup and use the people money to seek treatment in Australia! Even though we had doctors who are trained in oversease like UK, Australia, US in the state!
Poor Sarawakians and Iban...Ka Parai Taib dan Jabu.......They deserve to be burnt in hell for their greed and corruption!
MIRI: Pre-election campaigning in Batang Ai has taken a supernatural twist with Barisan Nasio-nal leaders warning of dire consequences for breaking longhouses taboo.
Although nominations of candidates are two weeks’ away, Barisan and opposition leaders have started hurling abuses at each other.
The latest statement made by Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu anak Numpang surely tops the list of quotable quotes.
Jabu, who is Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu deputy president and also State Minister for Rural Development and Infrastruc-ture Development and Communi-cations, warned opposition campaigners and native Ibans of “supernatural repercussions” that awaited those who allowed “outsiders” to enter longhouses and villages.
Jabu said that a resident of the longhouse died of mysterious circumstances two days ago after the longhouse folk allowed opposition members to enter their premises to launch a party branch.
“These outsiders do not understand that there are certain sets of rituals that must be strictly adhere to before they can enter the longhouses.
“They must respect these traditional beliefs or else the longhouse folks will suffer from the repercussions,” he said.
Jabu warned longhouse folks not to allow “outsiders” into their premises.
The opposition has accused the Barisan of trying to intimidate the voters ahead of nomination and polling.
Former three-term Sri Aman Member of Parliament Datuk Jimmy Donald, who has switched from Parti Rakyat Sarawak to Parti Keadilan Rakyat, said BN leaders in Sarawak are trying to prevent opposition leaders from entering the state.
“They (state Barisan leaders) want to stop opposition leaders from entering Sarawak. To Barisan, it would be an advantage if they can stop them from visiting the voters.
“That is why they are employing scare tactics to prevent the voters from meeting us during our visits and ceramah,” he said.
The Batang Ai by-election is held following the death of incumbent Barisan assemblyman Datuk Dublin Unting last month.
The by-election for the Iban-majority seat of 8,061 voters will be held simultaneously with the by-elections in Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau.
Nomination Day is on March 29 and polling is on April 7.
