BINTULU, May 22: Sebauh District Community Leaders (Ketua Kaum) Association has reiterated their full support for Dato Sri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom to be maintained as the candidate for Kemena constituency in the upcoming State Election.
Association chairman Tuai Rumah Justin Agas Guang emphasised that Dr Rundi’s commitment in resolving the people’s problems and bringing development to Kemena constituency was the main reason for their unanimous support.
“This is for the continuous betterment of Kemena as well as the welfare of the people.
“Throughout his (Dr Rundi’s) four-term as Kemena assemblyman, various development projects have been implemented through Minor Rural Project (MRP), Rural Transformation Project (RTP) and Upgrading of Housing of the Poor Project (PPRMS) to ensure that the people in Kemena areas are not left behind from development and progress,” he said in a statement today reported by Sarawak Public Communications Unit (UKAS).
The Association also wants Dr Rundi to continue leading the Ministry of Utility which is very relevant to fulfill the aspirations of the rural communities.
“In addition, a lot of longhouses in rural areas of Kemena are now able to enjoy various facilities including treated water and electricity supply including Sarawak Alternative Rural Electrification Scheme (SARES), apart from infrastructure development such as roads, bridges and so forth,” he said.
Justin pointed out that Dr Rundi is a true-blue Sarawakian who understands the livelihood and problems faced by the people in the constituency.
“We will not support any other candidates other than Dr Rundi. We can see who is working for the people and not talking only,” he added.
As such, the Association hoped that the people in Kemena constituency will not be influenced and confused by any parties with personal agenda because Dr Rundi is still relevant to Kemena. — DayakDaily
