Prime Minister Najib calling Sabah 'fixed deposit' for the BN may end soon if he doesn't do something to those saboteurs in SESB.This bunch of incompetent officers sent over here by Tenaga spent more times going to conferences than doing their job insuring uninterrupted power supply to the state.Some of these men trying very hard to destroy his 1 Malaysia concept.A government that doesn't live up to its promise is likely to face the gallows.
The frequent power disruptions and load shedding that affected the east coast for many years have now hit the west coast and the state capital in a big way.The frequent power disruptions are effecting businesses and creating chaos in the state capital as most major traffic lights ceased to function causing massive traffic jams and mayhem on the roads and streets of Kota Kinabalu.
The constant power disruptions have plagued Sabah for many years and the Federal government since taking over the Sabah Electricity Board had made the situation worse.The negligence to resolve this and other problems affecting the daily lives of Sabahans will have serious repercussions at the next general elections.Sabahans, are basically fed up with the arrogant attitude of these West Malaysian officers and Sabah leaders who had failed to look after the basic needs of the people.
While it is always bright and sunny in West Malaysia clouds of uncertainty hang over Sabah.Frequent power disruptions, inadequate water supply, poor health care, poor road system and the poorest state in Malaysia.
This state had become worse than some third world countries.If shame is the word befitting Sabah leaders than they should be ashamed of themselves for their couldn't care less attitude and inaction.Yesterday, two kampongs in Weston reported to be without water supply for over a month affecting 300 households with over 5000 residents.Reason given by the water department was that their water treatment plant had broken down.The story here.
This is the most outrageous excuse ever.Water is the most essential commodity to sustain lives and Sabah has plentiful.The head of the department should be sacked or moved to a cooler environment where he can spend time sitting on his ass,sucking his thumb and do fuck all.
What do Sabahans want from their members of parliament? They are supposed to look after Sabah's interests at the federal level and act as lobbyists and not as monkeys in Parliament. Here's one Sabah MP who feels he is not handsome enough to deserve the attention of an actress but going ahead anyway to marry her.She loves him for his uncouth and uncultured Mr Bocor image and maybe his fat wallet.Here, the well-known politician(for his controversial menstrual 'bocor') and the popular actress (?, never heard of her before) had dinner with her family to get to know each other better while 5,000 Sabahans here who voted for him and the BN had no water supply for over one month.
Last month I spent three weeks in Phnom Penh and not a single day had been without power.This visibly poor country, if you still want to call it poor to self-console yourself that Malaysia is a better place, are showing remarkable improvement and progress since the fall of the Khmer Rogue.At least most of its streetlights are functioning and important historical monuments are lit at night compared to Kota Kinabalu where many parts of the city are in darkness and major roads unlit.Broken streetlights never get repaired for years.The mayor seems to be busier planting trees,shrubs, flowers and putting up monstrous looking billboards all over the city but ignored the fundamental needs of the city dwellers.The needs to live in a functional city and get the amenities that they have paid for.
While the rest of the world are trying their best to reduce greenhouse effect the Federal government insisted on a coal-fired power plant putting the guns to Sabahan heads that if they don't accept coal than they might as well wither on the vine.
With so much natural gas lying so near offshore common sense tells you that a gas-fired power station makes more sense than that cheap and dirty coal. A project of dubious background.Maybe, the MACC should look into the purchases of Tenaga just to ensure probity and compliance.
If they can run undersea power cable over 700 km for the Bakun project to bring more electrical power to West Malaysia would you believe running 50 km undersea gas pipeline is too expensive and not feasible? The Bakun project would be more expensive to run because it will suffer between 20 to 30 percent power transmission loss over the long distance delivery.
Logic, tells you that the people in Tenaga consider Sabah unworthy of attention, giving Sabahans crappy old machines, pollutants emitting monsters and lots of bullshit stories.These morons forgot that Sabahans are more environmentally conscious than their counterparts in West Malaysia.That's why there were strong objections to the proposal.That's why there were no coal-fired greenhouse gases monsters here.
Just because West Malaysians accepted coal-fired stations doesn't mean Sabahans must do the same and close their eyes to the dangerous long-term side effects to the environment and their health.We have already killed our natural heritage by cutting huge chunk of our forests for oil palm plantations.The harmful effects are now being felt by our rivers and seas.
Unless, Prime Minister Najib takes personal interests in the perennial power disruptions and other problems facing Sabahans his 'fixed deposit' might just evanescent into the abysmal abyss.
