KENINGAU: State Education and Innovation Assistant Minister, Jenifer Lasimbang, hopes reports of the Jalur Gemilang being raised upside down in the peninsula are unintentional and due to mistake.

“Don’t do such as thing if to show dissatisfaction. It will not be tolerated,” she said after closing the district level Jobs Carnival Career Tour Series Two at the community hall, here, on Friday.

Police are investigating the incidents and some were found to have been done by workers who were unfamiliar with how the flag should be flown.

“Even if the worker did it may not be Malaysian, as an employer or the owner, we must be responsible for monitoring whatever is in our premises,” she said.

She said August is a meaningful month for Malaysians as they celebrate the month of independence, in keeping with this year’s theme, “Sayangi Malaysiaku.”

“I urge Malaysians, especially in Sabah, to fly the Jalur Gemilang and the Sabah flag as a show of love for the country and to ensure that we stay together in a free, peaceful and harmonious country.

“We must also ensure that our racial and religious tolerance is maintained as a developing nation and that we all respect one another no matter what our race and religion,” she said

Also present were State Rural Development Assistant Minister Rasinin Koutis, Sabah Manpower Department Director Kamal Pardi, Human Development Department Director Zainudin Aman, Assistant District Officer (Administration) Edward Bungsu, District Police Chief DSP Shahrudin Mat Husain, District Chiefs OKK James Henry and OKK Hafiz Lian, heads of State and Federal government departments and community leaders.
