The Borneo Post - - HOME -

SIBU: The Kam­pung Ber­adek se­cu­rity and de­vel­op­ment com­mit­tee (JKKK) from Kuching con­ducted a study visit to the Sibu Ru­ral Dis­trict Coun­cil (SRDC) on Fri­day.

The 30 visi­tors were briefed by SRDC sec­re­tary Jus­tani Joni on the roles of the coun­cil and ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Group deputy fa­cil­i­ta­tor Sedi Jeni said they chose Sibu as their desti­na­tion be­cause the town is very pro­gres­sive.

Sedi said the in­sights on SRDC had greatly ben­e­fited mem­bers.

Dur­ing a din­ner for the visi­tors, SRDC chair­man Sem­pu­rai Petrus Nge­lai urged the younger gen­er­a­tion to un­der­stand the sig­nif­i­cance of Malaysia Day.

“Gen­er­a­tion Y, while they did not go through the strug­gles of their fore­fa­thers in achiev­ing in­de­pen­dence and for­ma­tion of Malaysia, it is cru­cial that they re­mem­ber the his­toric date Sept 16, 1963.

“This is be­cause it marks the be­gin­ning to­wards the mak­ing of a suc­cess­ful Malaysia. With the state-level Malaysia Day cel­e­bra­tion cen­tred in Sibu this year, this is an op­por­tune time for us to re­call back this his­toric mo­ment,” he said.
