Hen­rynus failed as PBS sec gen — Mosi­tun

The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

PAPAR: Parti Ber­satu Sabah (PBS) hit out at Parti Ker­jasama Anak Negeri (Anak Negeri) pres­i­dent Datuk Hen­rynus Amin for say­ing PBS had lost con­trol of its grass­roots and would lose all its seats in the next gen­eral elec­tion.

“That is only to be ex­pected of a po­lit­i­cal re­ject like Hen­rynus. PBS gave him his start in pol­i­tics, and he was even made sec­re­tary gen­eral. He as­pired for higher of­fice, but af­ter he failed in the party elec­tions he left, and now he is bit­ter and vin­dic­tive. All his in­vec­tives at what­ever PBS says or does to­day is out of anger and per­sonal frus­tra­tion,” said PBS sec­re­tary gen­eral Datuk Johnny Mosi­tun

Mosi­tun said Hen­rynus, more than any­one else, knew that the RCI on il­le­gal im­mi­grants in Sabah was fully un­der the con­trol of the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and chaired by the Home Min­is­ter who is also the Deputy Prime Min­is­ter.

“Surely any­one can see what the RCI is. It was not PBS that set it up. It was set up by the fed­eral gov­ern­ment upon re­quest from var­i­ous quar­ters in Sabah, in­clud­ing po­lit­i­cal par­ties on both sides of the di­vide.

“If Hen­rynus is not happy with it, then he should di­rect his in­sults and in­vec­tives at those in charge of it, not PBS,” Mosi­tun said.

Mosi­tun said PBS had noth­ing to apol­o­gize for if the fed­eral gov­ern­ment was tak­ing time to im­ple­ment the rec­om­men­da­tions of the RCI.

“Hen­rynus knows, as for­mer sec­re­tary gen­eral, that PBS had al­ways been push­ing the fed­eral gov­ern­ment for quick ac­tion in this mat­ter.

“What ba­sis has he to say PBS is not sin­cere about it? Does he think PBS can force the fed­eral gov­ern­ment? Hen­rynus knows that’s im­pos­si­ble, but he will talk like that just out of spite,” Mosi­tun said.

He said there was no point giv­ing any re­sponse to Hen­rynus as he would not ad­dress the points raised but sim­ply take the op­por­tu­nity to re­peat his crit­i­cisms of PBS like a bro­ken gramo­phone record.

Mosi­tun said Hen­rynus, de­spite hav­ing been made PBS sec­re­tary gen­eral, had been un­able to have any pos­i­tive im­pact on the party.

“He was our sec­re­tary gen­eral when GE13 was held. It was a heavy re­spon­si­bil­ity to test his cal­i­bre as a leader, but he failed to de­liver.

“He was tout­ing his Tataba pro­gram which only ben­e­fited him as the sup­plier of items but did noth­ing for the party, which lost more seats than it had ever lost be­fore with him as sec­re­tary gen­eral. Is it any won­der the mem­bers re­jected him in the party elec­tions later?” Mosi­tun said.

Mosi­tun said Hen­rynus could say and do as he liked, and it was not clear what his party Panas stood for or had as its real ob­jec­tives.

“There was even talk go­ing round in Sabah that the party was be­ing spon­sored by cer­tain pow­er­ful politicians with the aim of keep­ing the KDM di­vided for self­ish rea­sons.

“Such ru­mours may or may not have any ba­sis, but what­ever it is, it is more likely that Hen­rynus and his party are more likely to end up with zero seats and even all its can­di­dates los­ing their seats, not PBS,” Mosi­tun said.
