Kedayan was known for being ‘rebellious’


BEKENU (theborneopost): Kedayans, as a minority race in Sarawak, must unite to be heard for them to progress alongside other races in the state.

Bekenu assemblywoman Rosey Yunus said it was important for them to be together under one association to ensure their problems were seen by the government.

Rosey was attending the AGM of Persatuan Kedayan Sibuti last Sunday afternoon. Among those present were Pemanca Abu Bakar Pangis and the association’s Kedayan members from Limbang, Bintulu, Miri and Sibuti.

According to Rosey, the community must enhance rapport among themselves, practise tolerance and be willing to accept change - it’s the secret to success and progress for any community in the state.

She said the Kedayan community was known for being ‘rebellious’ as it had fought against the British colonisation of Sarawak. In fact, the Sarawak governor and government recognised the community for their fighting spirit after Sarawak had joined Malaysia.

I find it's quite strange the phrase used by Bekenu assemblywoman Kadayan being "rebellious". In my observations this term has always been avoided by Sabah Kadayan YBs in the past, in order not to inflict Kadayan as such, but are obedient and loyal citizens. I look at their doings are negative. In return curtails new ideas or different ideas. Because for them good smart and brilliant leaders are those subservient to the boss. Wrong! As for Bekenu, it wasn't just during the British time that Kadayan acted that way-see The Mystic of Borneo-Kadayan-by amde
