Deadly diseases strike fear in Sungai Asap resettlement

Deadly diseases strike fear in Sungai Asap resettlement
Posted on July 30, 2011, Saturday

KUCHING: Apart from bad road conditions, there is now a new problem affecting the residents of Bakun resettlement in Sungai Asap – the risk of being exposed to infectious and deadly diseases such as melioidosis and leptospirosis (known locally as ‘penyakit kencing tikus’).

Bakun Community Safety Committee (BSCS) chairman Dr Elli Luhat said yesterday the recent fatal cases involving four Sarawak Forestry staff, suspected to be caused by one of the diseases, has been a cause of concern and constant worry among the people there.

According to Elli, he was informed of the deaths two weeks ago. The deceased staff members were involved in moving large animals from the Bakun Dam water catchment area to higher ground and fell sick upon completion of the work.

Karim is a better choice than Jerip to be Assistant Minister !!!

Here are our arguments:

# As the Chief Political Secretary to the Chief Minister Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah has never failed to aggressively defending Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

# Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah also has strong supports in his party PBB

# SUPP is a dying party

KUCHING: Speculations are rife that Bengoh assemblyman Dr Jerip Susil might be a member of the State Cabinet soon.

Hours after Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud hinted at a function in Kota Samarahan on Saturday that Dr Jerip could expect some good news soon as a reward for his loyalty to BN, the good doctor represented an assistant minister to officiate at an event.

This is considered ‘unusual’ because the function, which was held at a hotel in Kuching, is outside his constituency of Bengoh.

Dr Jerip was tasked to represent Assistant Minister of Water Supply Sylvester Entrie Muran at the ‘DUN Muara Tuang-level Ngiling Tikai dinner (closing of Gawai)’.
