KUCHING, July 31: Kuching will celebrate its 34th anniversary as a city tomorrow (Aug 1).

Deputy Premier Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian said Kuching was officially declared a city on Aug 1, 1988.

Also known as the City of Unity, he said, Kuching is unique in Sarawak as two local councils, namely the Kuching South City Council (MBKS) and Kuching North City Commission (DBKU), will come together on Aug 1 every year to celebrate the occasion.

“In Kuching, in Sarawak, it’s unique because we have Kuching City North and Kuching City South.

“But every year, on Kuching City Day, which is Aug 1, both councils come together, and they take turns celebrating this day.

“And this is in line with the spirit of Sarawak unity. That’s why Kuching is known as the City of Unity,” he said on social media today.

Last year, there was no physical celebration for the 33rd Kuching City Day anniversary as the council wanted to focus on combating Covid-19. — DayakDaily
