Unrecorded leave for Kaamatan, Gawai festivals
PUTRAJAYA: Effective this year, government servants born in Sabah, Sarawak and the Federal Territory of Labuan who work in peninsular Malaysia are allowed to take a one-day unrecorded leave for the Kaamatan and Gawai festivals.
The Prime Minister’s Office, in a statement yesterday, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had agreed to it.
The statement said it was hoped that the leave would enable these civil servants to celebrate the festivals with their families and the people of Sabah and Sarawak.
Kaamatan falls on May 30 and 31, and Gawai on June 1 and 2.
