Tambunan: Kadazan-dusun Huguan Siou (Paramount Leader) Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan on Saturday announced that the Kadazandusun Murut College (Kolej KDM) will be built in Kaingaran here.
Pairin, who is also Deputy Chief Minister, said he had instructed the Tambunan District Officer to identify a suitable site for the college.
"I will personally follow on this to ensure the college becomes a reality," he said when opening the Tambunan-level Kaamatan (harvest) festival at Pisompuruan Square, near here.
The college had been mooted by Persatuan Kebajikan dan Pendidikan Kadazandusun dan Murut (Pekadin), a non-governmental organisation that champions welfare and educational causes of the Kadazandusun and Murut (KDM) communities of Sabah.
The move has also received the support of other KDM leaders including United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (Upko) head Tan Sri Bernard Dompok and Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) President Tan Sri Joseph Kurup.
