MIRI: The younger peo­ple in Baram are re­minded to ap­pre­ci­ate and value the peace and har­mony they have been en­joy­ing un­til to­day.

Te­lang Usan as­sem­bly­man Den­nis Ngau said life in the past was hard and thus a de­ci­sion was made by past lead­ers to unite the peo­ple and with it came peace.

“Prior to the for­ma­tion of Malaysia, Sarawakians were liv­ing an un­easy life. There were peo­ple want­ing to con­quer them.

“With Malaysia, we are stronger and able to face our en­e­mies,” he said at a func­tion be­fore flag­ging off a Malaysia Day con­voy in Long Be­dian, Apoh yes­ter­day.

The event was or­gan­ised by PBB Te­lang Usan Youth with sup­port from PBB Mulu Youth, Te­lang Usan 4WD Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion and Saberkas Te­lang Usan branch.

PBB Te­lang Usan Youth chief Cr Do­minic Nyu­rang and Te­lang Usan 4WD Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Cr Ja­rau Braim were among those present.

“This pro­gramme is aimed to in­stil love, loy­alty and pa­tri­o­tism among the par­tic­i­pants and lo­cal vil­lagers apart from cel­e­brat­ing Malaysia Day,” said Den­nis.

The con­voy was par­tic­i­pated by 60 peo­ple in 15 4WD ve­hi­cles, pass­ing through Long Be­dian, Long Je­na­long, Long Latie, Long Karangan, Long Ke­vok, Long Leng, Long Urang, Long Kawa and Kuala Sg Merah Tenyok - dis­tribut­ing flags, food and drinks to the peo­ple along the way.

They also erected ‘Belia Benci Dadah’ sig­nage at each vil­lage passed through.

A for­mer vil­lage chief of Long Ke­vok was pre­sented with a wheel­chair.
