KUCHING, Nov 30: Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Umbas has emphasised that that no forces are allowed to destroy our culture of unity in Sarawak that has prevailed here for generations.

“Sarawak is now one region that has shown an exemplary example of a unified State, and we hope to continue to be that way,” he said.

“No forces should destroy that unity because we Sarawakians are united irrespective of race and religion.”

Uggah made these remarks after officiating at the annual Christmas lighting event to mark the coming festive occasion in the vicinity of Kuching City’s iconic White Cat statue at Padungan this evening.

He urged that we continue to practice the culture of visiting each other to cement closer ties among each other during festive occasions.

“With this unity, we will continue to build Sarawak to greater heights and become a developed state by 2030 envisioned by our premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg that will benefit each and every one of us Sarawakians,” he said.

With him were Deputy Premier and Minister of Public Health, Housing and Local Government, Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian, Kuching South City Council (MBKS) Mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng, churches and community leaders. — DayakDaily
