KOTA KINABALU : The statement by Upko defector Wilfred Mojilip Bumburing in the local media on Tuesday that the Orang Asal, especially the Kadazandusun and Murut, should not pin their hopes on State Reform Party (Star) is patently mischievous, misconceived and misleading.
Star is all about the dignity of the people of Sabah and Sarawak. Man does not live by bread alone!
Bumburing was a stooge of Umno in Upko and he continues to be so a stooge of PKR now via his so-called Angkatan Perubahan Sabah (APS).
The Sabah and Sarawak proxies and stooges of Malayan parties, especially those operating in Borneo, are traitors who must be driven out from our politics.
It will be like cleansing of our spirits of the politics of self-serving leeches, parasites and bloodsuckers which has plagued us since we lost our self-determination of 22 July (Sarawak) and 31 Aug (Sabah) in 1963.
The issue before us is clear. We must oppose Malayan Agenda, which has been very obvious to our eyes now, which is all about internal colonisation. Opposing internal colonisation is the thrust of our Borneo Agenda struggle which is in line with what the Borneon natives want.
We shall walk that path from generation to generation for an eternity, if necessary, until we are finally free again and the Malayan colonialists have left our nations in Borneo.
Bumburing and his APS are no less than mere puppet of another Malayan Agenda, this time via PR. It shall be revealed to Bumburing and co sooner that they are no better than puppet.
They must be treated with the utmost contempt, rooted out from our body politic and destroyed if what the people wanted, self-dignity and Borneo empowerement, is to be realised at the coming general election. .
This is the only way that we will be able to stand on our two feet again and regain our rightful place as nations in Malaysia -- Sabah and Sarawak -- if not as free, independent and sovereign countries in the community of nations recognized by the United Nations.
We have a historical window of opportunity before us to strike a blow for Sabah and Sarawak.
The 12th General Election in 2008 divided the politics of Peninsular Malaysia, in particular the Malay-speaking communities Bugis, Javanese, Minang, Achehnese and Indian Muslims or the 55 per cent majority, forever.
The 45 per cent minority communities, divided by ethnicity, language, religion, geography and economics stand poised to rule Malaysia with moderate elements from the Islamic faith.
Sabah and Sarawak will be the beneficiaries of the emerging new politics in Malaysia on both sides of the South China Sea.
Adding to the complexity of the new politics will be the emergence of a 3rd Force led by Star in a hung Malaysian Parliament which will emerge from the 13th General Election.
This 3rd force elements will come from both Malaya and Borneo since not everyone will be committed to the Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Rakyat (PR).
All these developments are beyond comprehension of people like Bumburing and other local political parties which are being held to ransom by the Malayan parties for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver.
The Orang Asal in particular have a real opportunity at last to neutralise the illegal immigrants on the electoral rolls and end their marginalisation and disenfranchisement engineered by BN and likely to be continued by PR in the absence of a 3rd force.
