KOTA KINABALU: Huge funds havee been allocated for various infrastructure development in the Kemabong sub-district this year. Kemabong Assemblyman Jamawi Jaafar said a total of RM212 million is to upgrade the road from Kemabong Town to Kampung Rundum and RM179 million to upgrade the Kampung Ulu Tomani road. 

A total of RM35 million is for rural power supply to residents in Kampung Rundum, Samambu and Bingkoi, while RM30 million is for the construction of the new Sekolah Kebangsaan Kemabong. 

He said the project will not only provide basic amenities for the people’s comfort in the area, but also contribute to improving local economic capacity through their involvement in agriculture and tourism sectors.

He said this when met after being a guest of Radio Television Malaysia’s (RTM) show called “Bah Apa Cerita” at the RTM Integrated Complex in Kepayan, here, Thursday. 

Jamawi said the RM30 million allocated to constructing the new school building can empower human capital and provide a more comfortable studying environment for students in the area. 

On another development, Jamawi who is Kelab Penyokong Kerajaan Chairman hoped that the Kemabong sub-district will one day be upgraded to a full-fledged district. 

“I am confident that the improvement of basic infrastructure that will be carried out by the government in the area will be the catalyst for this place to move forward,” he said. 

He said two sectors, namely agriculture and tourism sector, can be expanded to provide job opportunities for youths, while investors and traders will open their stores in the area and thus encourage the increase in population that will eventually qualify the sub-district into a district. 

His confidence grows with the presence of support and cooperation from government officials and residents in the area that provides a paradigm shift to assist the State and federal government’s efforts to work on the policy and programmes provided by the government.
