Apalah terjadi kepada Menteri-Menteri Kerajaan Warisan Sabah?
Baru – baru ini, Datuk Mohamaddin bin Ketapi, Menteri Pelancongan, Seni Dan Budaya dan Ahli Parlimen Silam, semasa satu sidang media di Parlimen, berkelakuan tidak sopan dengan memanggil wartawan yang hadir “bodoh”, “sampah” dan menyuruh mereka “berambus”
Apakah salah mereka? Who does the minister think he is?
It is embarrassing to call this minister ‘Yang Berhormat’ because of his rude behaviour. His actions are reflective of his own intellect. It was reported in the media that the Minister never completed his law studies at the University of Buckingham, England.
Mungkinkah ini sebabnya beliau berkelakuan biadap sebegini?
In any event, there is no place in the Sabah cabinet for rude ministers (menteri-menteri berperangi biadap)! The public looks-up at appointed state representatives in high esteem. Leaders should act responsibly instead of behaving like rowdies.
Due to criticisms from members of the public, Ketapi denied being rude (to the media).
If so, why did his press secretary call and apologise to the media for the minister’s bad behaviour?
Every minister, deputy minister and MP must be responsible to his/her constituency, citizens of Sabahan, state and country. Masalahnya kebanyakan Menteri ini mudah lupa peranan dan tanggungjawab mereka selepas dilantik.
Remember, it was the people who voted you into government based on your promises. So, apart from your performance, the least you could do is behave appropriately (sopan santun)!
By the way, what has Ketapi contributed in the last 18 months?
Separately, for others like Peter Anthony, the infrastructure development minister, status is very important bust the sad thing is this minister does not believe in communicating with us Sabahans.
He was quoted as saying that the sensitive Papar Dam project would proceed despite the numerous objections and protests by local communities, civil societies and NGOs.
Beliau memang enggan mendengar rintihan kami mengenai empangan itu!
Pada awal tahun ini, beliau juga mengeluarkan arahan bahawa lif diperuntukkan untuk kegunaan para Menteri sahaja, siap dengan permaidani didalam dan diluar lift “khas” itu.
Dimanakah datangnya keangkuhan dan sifat sombong ini?
The Sabah Chief Minister should establish rules to educate his ministers on good behaviour. It has only been 18 months since the Warisan government took power and if it wishes to continue serving after GE15, then you have to remember that we put you in power!
