Kapit neighbourhood watch committees attend appreciation do
KAPIT: Some 400 neighbourhood watch committee members here attended an appreciation dinner on Friday at the Kapit Civic Centre.
The dinner was also an early Christmas and New Year celebration.
National Unity and Integration Department Kapit officer in charge Jendri Mangku praised the various committees for actively organising various social interaction activities throughout the year to promote understanding and friendship in their respective neighbourhoods.
She urged them to further strengthen understanding and friendship among one another.
“We are living in a plural society of not less than 27 ethnic groups.
“Despite the great diversity, we are living in peace and harmony respecting each other’s way of living.
“This is our social practice that must be further preserved because this is a fine culture — our way of life here. Kapit is the perfect example of national unity,” she said.
