DAP’s ‘Ulu drive’ won’t succeed — BN leaders

May 27, 2013

“DAP Sarawak only fight for Chinese education and cultures only. DAP mostly addresses issues in urban areas only. DAP hardly go to rural areas.” -Tuan Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah 

Datuk Dr Stephen Rundi
SIBU: The state BN is well prepared to thwart any attempts by the DAP to mislead the people in their bid to establish a support base in the rural areas.

Its secretary-general Datuk Dr Stephen Rundi said this yesterday when asked to comment on DAP’s plan to embark on a ‘Ulu drive’ as it mounts early preparations for the 11th state election.

“We anticipated their moves and are fully prepared to counter any attempts to mislead the rural people,” Dr Rundi, who is also Assistant Minister of Public Utilities (Electricity and Telecommunications), told The Borneo Post.

State DAP chairman Wong Ho Leng said the party needed to make early preparations for the state polls and would go the extra mile to reach out to the people.

The 10th state election was held in April 2011, meaning the term of the current State Legislative Assembly (DUN) will only expire in 2016.

Datuk Fadillah Yusof
Meanwhile, state BN Youth chief Datuk Fadillah Yusof, urged all in the state BN to prepare early for the state polls.

“Get our act together and make sure members are registered as voters. Engage with all the people, listen and understand them, and give the best service in whatever way we can.

“That will be the recipe to win the hearts and minds of the people, and whatever the opposition wants to do is up to them.

“If the people can see and feel that BN can give the best to them, I believe BN will always be the people’s choice,” said Fadillah, who is also Works Minister and Petra Jaya MP.

Contribute to the Malaysia Youth Index, Sarawak youths told

May 26, 2013

KUCHING: Youths in Sarawak are urged to contribute towards the Malaysia Youth Index (MYI) which is conducted biennially by the Malaysian Institute for Research in Youth Development.

MYI, which carries out case studies and research, plays an instrumental role for the government to plan developments and implement policies tailored for Malaysian youths.

Among the highest MYI which was tabulated in 2011 according to Assistant Minister for Youth Development Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, had shown that youths were more inclined towards self development 67.2per cent, identity (58 per cent) and self potential (66.7 percent).

Speaking during the closing of the state level Astroquiz finals at the Sultan Iskandar Planetarium yesterday, Karim is optimistic that through hard work and commitment, Sarawakian youths will be able to improve the index.

He also said that programmes such as Astroquiz jointly organised by the planetarium and the Sarawak Astronomy Association would be able to contribute towards MYI and at the same time reflect youth developments in Sarawak.

“The government also views such activities as a potential partner towards better human capital development,” said Karim who is also Assistant Minister for Housing and Asajaya assemblyman.

He also said that the Astroquiz could well be the starting point for school children to learn about the wonders of astronomy which have greatly influenced today’s technology.

‘Big BN win in Kota Samarahan proves critics wrong’

SYMBOLIC: Karim performs the symbolic ‘tepung tawar’ on Rubiah and 
her husband Salleh Wasli.

KOTA SAMARAHAN: The big win achieved by Barisan Nasional candidate Rubiah Wang once again proved that Kota Samarahan is a BN stronghold despite the countering claim by the opposition prior to election.

Asajaya assemblyman Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said the mandate given by the people back to BN during the recently concluded 13th General Election is a clear statement of the people’s trust towards the ruling government’s track record.

“BN won with a big majority of 17,401 which clearly proven BN is the people’s choice over here which cannot be denied,” said Karim.

He was speaking at the BN Thanksgiving celebration for Kota Samarahan parliamentary constituency at SMK Asajaya 2 hall yesterday.

On another matter, Karim pointed out those branch leaders who were ineffective should pave way for new faces to lead the party branches.

“We need new faces to lead branches as new blood will bring in new ideas. We do note that there were ineffective branch leaders who still hold the post,” he elaborated.

Meanwhile, Kota Samarahan MP Rubiah Wang in her speech said the Sarawakians’ trust and confidence towards BN was duly paid off after seven MPs from the state were appointed as full ministers in various ministries.

More astronomy-related activities needed - Karim

KUCHING: Programmes and activities related to astronomy will continue to spark enthusiasm among young people, said Assistant Minister of Youth Development, Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

He pointed out advanced countries like the United States of America had capitalised on their space exploration and astronomical knowledge to develop many products such as the GPS system, satellite photography, non-stick pan and many other items for the benefit of the people. 

“As such, being advanced in the field is beneficial,” he said at the closing ceremony of the state-level AstroKuiz, a quiz competition on astronomical knowledge at Planetarium Sultan Iskandar here yesterday. 

“Astronomy should be encouraged in Malaysia and more youths in Sarawak should be encouraged to cultivate a strong interest in the subject,” he added.

Karim congratulated the planetarium and the Sarawak Astronomy Association for staging the inaugural quiz competition, saying more such events should be organised from time to time and more schools should conduct similar programmes to enhance interest in the field. 

The quiz competition was held in conjunction with the state’s 50th anniversary celebration of independence within Malaysia.

It was held in two stages in four zones. Zone 1 made up of Kuching and Samarahan for company, Zone 2 Sri Aman, Betong and Sarikei, Zone 3 Sibu, Kapit and Mukah while Zone 4 had Bintulu, Miri and Limbang for company.

Karim gesa ketua ranting PBB berundur

May 25, 2013

SIMBOLIK: Karim melakukan tepung tawar ke atas Ahli Parlimen Kota Samarahan Rubiah Wang
dan suaminya, Salleh Wasli pada Majlis Kesyukuran dan Terima Kasih Kemenangan BN
Peringkat Parlimen Kota Samarahan semalam.
ASAJAYA: Ketua-ketua ranting Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) yang tidak mampu memikul tanggungjawab diminta mengun­durkan diri untuk memberi laluan kepada mereka yang komited berjuang demi kesinambungan parti.

Perkara itu ditegaskan oleh Ahli Majlis Tertinggi PBB Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah yang memberi­tahu, pemilihan baharu ketua-ketua parti peringkat ranting bagi ka­wasan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Asajaya akan dilakukan dalam masa terdekat.

“Selepas Mei ini, kita akan mengadakan pemilihan pemimpin (ketua) parti baharu peringkat ranting dan mereka yang tidak berupaya lagi untuk memimpin parti di ranting-ranting, silalah berundur dan berilah peluang kepada mereka yang bersemangat untuk memimpin parti,” katanya yang juga Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Asajaya.

Beliau berkata demikan ketika berucap pada Majlis Kesyukuran dan Terima Kasih Kemenangan Barisan Nasional (BN) Pering­kat Parlimen Kota Samarahan anjuran PBB DUN Asajaya di Dewan Sekolah Menengah Ke­bangsaan (SMK) Asajaya 2 di sini semalam.

Karim menegaskan, penggan­tian mereka yang tidak berupaya memimpin parti di peringkat ranting adalah amat penting dalam memastikan kesinambungan kekuatan PBB.

“Apa yang kita mahu pemimpin parti di peringkat ranting-ranting ini mempunyai semangat yang murni untuk berjuang demi parti, bukannya pemimpin parti yang hanya hidup pada masa tertentu sahaja.

“Kalau kita pilih pemimpin parti yang hanya hidup masa tertentu sahaja tanpa betul-betul mahu berjuang demi parti, saya rasa lebih elok mereka ini mengun­durkan diri kerana kita mahu PBB kekal kukuh dan terus bertapak di negeri ini pada masa hadapan,” tegasnya.

Look at yourself in the mirror, Karim tells Baru

SIBU: State PKR chief Baru Bian’s claims in Free Malaysia Today that MPs from Sabah and Sarawak are nothing more than ‘window dressing’ in the federal cabinet drew brickbats from across the political divide yesterday.

Asajaya assemblyman Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah urged Baru to do his homework before ridiculing these MPs who were given a strong mandate by the people.

Abdul Karim said Baru’s remarks in the online portal under the caption ‘It’s Najib’s ‘thank you’ to Taib’ smacked of disrespect for the wishes of the people.

“I can’t imagine Baru would stoop so low as to insult MPs from his fellow state who had just got democratically elected, with one of them Hasbi (Habibollah) giving him a good trashing in Limbang after he had chickened out from Ba’kelalan and Lawas.

“Baru must be thinking he is the best assemblyman. Lest he forget that the people are the one that got all these MPs elected and they had spoken loud and clear by electing many Sarawakian BN MPs with massive majorities,” Abdul Karim, who is also Assistant Minister of Youth Development, said.

Hence, he said Baru had better check the credentials of all the Sarawakian ministers in the cabinet and compare them with his before opening his mouth.

“How many times have the people rejected him (Baru) in elections?”

Khairy’s appointment appropriate - Karim

KUCHING: The appointment of Khairy Jamaluddin as Youth and Sports Minister, which was announced recently by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, is appropriate as it fulfils the youth’s aspirations of a young, capable and proactive minister to run the ministry.

“Khairy, UMNO Youth Chairman, is a young and capable leader. He is also energetic and charismatic and his appointment will attract more youth to be involved in the government youth-related programmes,” said Assistant Minister of Youth Development Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

Karim, who is also the chairman of Sarawak Bumiputera Entrepreneurs’ Chamber (DUBS), said this to reporters after officiating DUBS Kuching Branch’s annual general meeting (AGM) held at the State Youth and Sports Complex Auditorium in Jalan Tun Ahmad Zaidi Adruce here yesterday morning.

On his hopes of furthering collaboration between the state and federal youth and sports ministries, he said having known Khairy personally, he was confident that much could be done to upgrade and transform the state’s youth and sports agenda.

Khairy’s appointment augurs well for S’wak

KUCHING: The appointment of Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar as the Minister of Youth and Sports would enable the state to strengthen further its coordination with the federal government to ensure the state is not left behind in the planning of programmes and projects development.

Assistant Minister of Youth Development Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah who knows the national Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth chief personally, believed that the state could overcome many development issues with Khairy at the helm.

“The appointment of Khairy as the Minister of Youth and Sports is spot on considering that he, being an UMNO and BN Youth chief, is still young. Being a person in his 30s, I see him as a minister who is pro-active and healthy which makes him very qualified to lead and bring the goals of youth development in this country to a higher level.

“Furthermore, I can see that he is a person who loves sports. His appointment would enable the country to meet the aspiration and needs of the youth in this country,” he told reporters when met before the start of the Dewan Usahawan Bumiputera Sarawak (DUBS) Kuching branch annual general meeting at the Youth and Sports complex here yesterday.

When asked if there were any major programmes and development planning that the state would immediately focus on following the new appointment, Karim said all existing programmes in both the urban and rural areas would be continued.

He pointed out that various youth and sporting programmes were being organised throughout the year and expected these activities to be enhanced further, considering the already strong working relations between the state Youth and Sports Department with its federal counterpart.

Khairy, 37, is a former Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) deputy president II. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University, United Kingdom and a Master’s degree in Legal and Political Theory from the University College London.

New cabinet line-up dynamic, says Abdul Karim

SIBU: The new cabinet line-up looks dynamic, comprising proactive young leaders and experienced veterans from the political and private sectors, said PBB supreme council member Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

“I am very happy to see recognition given to Sarawak for its role in helping BN win the general election by it being given seven full minister posts…the biggest ever for the state that I know,” Abdul Karim, the Assistant Minister of Youth Development and Asajaya assemblyman said.

The seven full ministers’ appointment for the state is an increase of four compared to the last cabinet.

Abdul Karim added: “Hopefully, with many ministers coming from Sarawak, they could play bigger roles in bringing more development to the state, which has been neglected by some ministries before this.”

Meanwhile, Penghulu Richard Ampi lauded the new cabinet line-up, saying it reflected the far-sightedness and sterling leadership of Najib.

He thanked Najib for the inclusion of more Dayak, which reflected the premier’s confidence in the community.

Citing an example in Datuk Joseph Entulu being elevated to a full minister post, he said, “This is indeed a good representation and augurs well for more development in Sarawak. As community leaders, we are very thankful to our Prime Minister.”

Sarawak BN and Oppositions say NO to overthrowing govt by force

May 15, 2013

“Pre-emptive laws should be used to stop those with evil intent on their track!” Tuan Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah

KUCHING: State politicians from both sides of divide agreed that taking to the streets to overthrow the Barisan Nasional (BN) government through force is against the country’s constitution and a threat to national security.

Six-term Santubong MP Datuk Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar condemned the call by ABU (Anything But Umno) leader Haris Ibrahim and PKR vice-president Tian Chua to overthrow BN through “force”.

The former Parliamentary deputy speaker said taking to the streets to overthrow the government is tantamount to a revolution.

“The police or even the military should take action and put away the political leaders who incited the people to overthrow the BN government,” Wan Junaidi told the Borneo Post.

Citing the examples of Egypt, Libya, Syria and Tunisia, he said the people of these countries had resorted to remove the ruling regimes by force but these countries were still plagued with problems.

“They (opposition leaders) joined the fold and participated in the election process. When they lost, they claimed that they don’t have faith in the system.

“The fact is that they failed to convince the people,” said Wan Junaidi.

Abdul Karim hits out at Anwar over rally

SIBU: The tendency to disrespect the democratic process and voice of the people by holding rallies to vent displeasure does not augur well for the country’s peace, stability and economic prosperity, said PBB supreme council member Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah yesterday.

He also said PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should not try to change the outcome of last Sunday’s 13th general election by pointing out to alleged discrepancies in certain constituencies depending on his “whims and fancies”.

“It is creating anxiety, instability and not doing good to the economy and business and of course, foreign investors’ confidence…and not forgetting the chaos and jam it created.

“Anwar must be able to accept defeat in an honourable way. Malaysia has adopted a system of election process based on election of parliamentary constituencies and not on popular votes and he should not start barking that PR is the winner now just because PR has got more popular votes than BN.

“The election process of identifying winners should not be changed according to his whims and fancies. It is just like in a football match where one team should not change the goalpost just to help a particular team to win,” Abdul Karim, who is Assistant Minister of Youth Development and Asajaya assemblyman, said.

Therefore, if Anwar felt there were discrepancies and irregularities in the election process, he ought to address them through the proper channel, he added, saying the opposition leader should instead file a petition in the court of law and not organise demonstrations and rallies.

“Indulging in this culture of disobedience by holding rallies and demonstration is bad for the country’s image, economy and youths and the law enforcers must be harsh on him and the organisers.

“Malaysia does not solely belong to Anwar as there are millions of other peace-loving silent Malaysians who don’t support him.

‘BN’s clear victory in S’wak proof of people’s support’

May 7, 2013, Tuesday

SIBU: State Barisan Nasional (BN) secretary-general Datuk Dr Stephen Rundi yesterday praised Sarawakians for being staunch BN supporters.

“Thank you Sarawakians who steadfastly stood by, supported and voted for BN despite the onslaught by the opposition and we will continue to work hard to serve the people,” the Assistant Minister of Public Utilities (Electricity and Telecommunications) said of BN’s victory in the 13th general election.

PBB supreme council member Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, on the other hand, said the result showed that Sarawakians wanted to give a very clear mandate to BN, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

“It is a manifestation that Sarawakians are happy with BN and its policies. The only unfortunate part of it was a glaring trend of Chinese voting for the opposition.

“This glaring polarisation is not healthy for racial harmony especially in a multi-ethnic society like Sarawak or Malaysia. This trend which seems to continue since the last state election and ever since a west Malaysian political party started ‘importing’ Semenanjung style of racial politics has clearly created a divisive racial trend in Sarawak politics too.

“This is the price we have to pay for democracy,” he noted.

Abdul Karim, who is Assistant Minister of Youth Development and Asajaya assemblyman, however, hoped leaders of that particular party could see politics and nation building from another perspective.

“Party leaders must be responsible to everyone irrespective of race or religion and must avoid harping on issues that could arouse hatred, ill-will among races or towards leaders,” he stressed.

Concurring with them, state BN youth chief Datuk Fadillah Yusof said the positive outcome also showed that Malaysians wanted Najib to continue leading the country so as to continue with the various transformation programmes.

And with the strong support registered by BN, particularly in Sarawak, he expressed confidence that the NKRA objectives for the state under the Rural Transformation Programme could be achieved.

He was also optimistic that BN would fulfil the promises it gave to Sarawak, such as the upgrading of the Pan Borneo trunk road.

Gelanggang cungkil bakat pemain

USAHA mencungkil bakat pemain perlu bermula di peringkat akar umbi.

Election very serious matter – Abdul Karim

KUCHING: Voters should look beyond personal relationship in choosing their elected representatives during an election which is a serious matter.

Assistant Minister of Housing Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said everyone must look at elections from a broader perspective, and not put personal relationships above everything else.

“There may be cases when we have no choice but to vote against our own family members who are contesting as candidates if we know that the parties they are representing will lead us to a bleak future,” he said at a function to present land ownership offer letters to residents of Kampung Mambong affected by the clinker plant project in the village on Tuesday.

Abdul Karim stressed that election is a serious matter because it would determine the future of the nation.

“So, when casting your votes this Sunday, do not vote for the candidate just because he or she is your relative or friend. Look at their party symbol.”

Abdul Karim, who is also Asajaya assemblyman, said voters should vote for the BN in the 13th general election.

“In the case of Mambong parliamentary constituency, BN’s candidate for this area is Datuk Seri Dr James Dawos Mamit. His name on the ballot paper will appear as candidate No. 3.”

Abdul Karim slams opposition for not understanding election process

SIBU: Pakatan Rakyat (PR) cannot be allowed to dictate the election process, as so doing tantamounts to meddling into Election Commission’s (EC) role.

PBB supreme council member Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah was reacting to news report that the opposition had resorted to blaming EC over ballot papers bearing the names of candidates who had withdrawn from contesting.

EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar reportedly said the opposition just refused to understand and chose to blame EC despite several briefings held before the April 20 nomination day.

“Pakatan leaders must be ignorant or simply chose to act stupid and ignorant. The election process has been slightly changed and all parties from both BN and Pakatan had been pre-informed of the several changes to the election process.

“Among them is after the close of nomination at 10am on Nomination Day and if the EC returning officer is satisfied that all candidates who submit their nomination papers qualify to contest then there will be an election.

“There will be no more withdrawal by candidates after that and all the candidates’ names will be in the ballot papers that are to be printed.

“Even if one of the candidates dies or announces to the world that he is withdrawing…his name will still be in the ballot papers,” Abdul Karim, who is also Assistant Minister of Youth Development and Asajaya assemblyman, said.

34 ahli PKR Sarawak keluar parti, sokong BN

KUCHING, Rabu — Seramai 34 ahli PKR cawangan Kampung Sejingkat, Jalan Bako di sini, yang hilang keyakinan terhadap parti itu mengisytiharkan keluar parti dan menyokong Barisan Nasional (BN), hari ini.

Ketua Cawangan PKR Kampung Sejingkat, Wan Razali Tuanku Hamid berkata, mereka kecewa dengan kepimpinan parti lalu mengisytiharkan keluar parti kerana mendakwa tidak yakin dengan perjuangan PKR bersama pakatan pembangkang dalam memperjuangkan rakyat di negeri ini.

Borang keahlian menyertai Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) turut diserahkan kepada Menteri Muda Perumahan, Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah sambil disaksikan oleh Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Demak Laut, Dr. Hazland Abang Hipni serta Haji Wan Hamzah Wan Paiee yang mewakili calon Parlimen Santubong.

“Ahli PKR cawangan Kampung Sejingkat mengambil tindakan keluar parti serta membubar bilik gerakan PKR Kampung Sejingkat selepas hilang kepercayaan terhadap parti itu, selain berikrar akan menyokong calon BN Parlimen Santubong, Datuk Dr. Haji Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.

“Kami akan membantu BN terus berkuasa di kawasan Parlimen Santubong. Tindakan keluar parti juga adalah demi mengekalkan semangat perpaduan masyarakat terutama di Kampung Sejingkat,” katanya ketika ditemui Utusan Sarawak di Kampung Sejingkat.

Pendapat Wan Razali itu turut disokong oleh timbalan beliau, Wan Hamzah Wan Mahbar yang mendakwa memperjuangkan PKR sejak dari arwah bapanya.

“Sekarang kami sedar bahawa semua perancangan PKR tidak dilaksanakan seperti hanya janji kosong, berbeza dengan pendekatan BN yang terbukti mampu dilaksana dengan jaya,” tegasnya.

Rakyat harus bijak memilih

PADAWAN: Rakyat harus memilih wakil yang boleh dipercayai dan mampu melaksanakan tanggungjawab dengan baik. Menteri Muda Perumahan Haji Abdul Karim Hamzah berkata pilihan raya adalah bagi menentukan wakil rakyat supaya menjadi suara mereka dalam parlimen dan dewan rakyat. 

"Oleh itu rakyat harus bijak memilih supaya wakil yang dipilih dapat membawa suara seterusnya membantu mereka untuk terus menikmati segala pelaksanaan kerajaan," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada majlis penyerahan Surat Kelulusan Hak Milik Tanah dan Program Rumah Mesra Rakyat (RMR) Skim Penempatan Semula Kampung Mambong di sini petang tadi. 

Menurut beliau rakyat akan rugi sekiranya memilih calon yang tidak boleh melakukan apa-apa untuk membantu mereka. 

Akibatnya, tambah beliau rakyat tidak dapat menikmati segala bentuk pelaksanaan pembangunan oleh kerajaan kerana wakil mereka gagal menyampaikan suara masyarakat diwakili.

Abdul Karim yang juga Menteri Muda Pembangunan Belia (Bandar) berkata masyarakat Mambong sepatutnya merasa bangga kerana calon Barisan Nasional (BN) yang bertanding dalam Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-13 (PRU13) merupakan anak jati Mambong.

Di samping itu, katanya calon Dato Sri Dr James Dawos Mamit mempunyai jawatan penting dalam parlimen iaitu Timbalan Menteri Pelancongan. 

Impian miliki rumah kini tercapai

May 1, 2013

TERIMA KASIH: (Dari lima kiri) Dr Jerip dan Abdul Karim bergambar bersama penerima-penerima surat Kelulusan Hak Milik Tanah dan Program RMR Skim Penempatan Semula di Kampung Mambong semalam.
KUCHING: Penantian selama 17 tahun bagi 18 keluarga di Kampung Mambong kira-kira 30 kilometer dari sini memiliki rumah sendiri berakhir semalam apabila Kementerian Perumahan bersetuju membina Rumah Mesra Rakyat (RMR) individu untuk mereka.

Menteri Muda Perumahan Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah berkata di bawah skim itu kementeriannya akan mendirikan RMR dengan satu pertiga daripada kos pembinaan akan ditanggung oleh kerajaan manakala bakinya oleh pemilik.

“Walaupun lama, saya berharap apa yang dilakukan oleh kerajaan sekurang-kurangnya akan mengakhiri penantian anda semua…difahamkan kelewatan ini disebabkan beberapa perkara yang tidak dapat dielakkan, antaranya tapak penempatan semula.

“Semua ini adalah usaha keras wakil rakyat anda di sini iaitu Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Bengoh Dr Jerip Susil dan calon BN Parlimen Mambong Datuk Seri Dr James Dawos Mamit,” katanya pada Majlis Penyerahan Surat Kelulusan Hak Milik Tanah dan Program RMR Skim Penempatan Semula Kampung Mambong, mewakili Menteri Perumahan Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Abang Openg, semalam.

Abdul Karim berkata peserta penempatan semula hanya perlu membayar RM40,000 daripada kos sebenar rumah berkenaan iaitu RM68,000 seunit.

Mengulas lanjut mengenai skim RMR individu Kampung Mambong sehingga semalam, 18 daripada yang memohon sembilan telah diluluskan manakala permohonan daripada sembilan lagi keluarga akan diluluskan dalam waktu terdekat ini.

Terdapat 19 keluarga di kampung itu yang terjejas ekoran pembinaan loji pemprosesan simen di kampung itu yang dulunya dikenali Sarawak Clinker Plant yang dibina pada 1996 dan dikendalikan oleh sebuah syarikat dari negara jiran sebelum ia diambil oleh syarikat tempatan.
