‘Judas coin’ episode in Malaysia’s formation should be in history books: Ex-CM
Kota Kinabalu: Former Chief Minister Tan Sri Chong Kah Kiat (pic) said the revelation by late second Sabah CM Tan Sri Peter Lo Su Yin of attempts by Sabah’s Chinese community to delay the formation of Malaysia until a best deal is secured highlights the community’s important role in the nation-building process.

He said these are things that should be remembered not just by researchers in understanding the roles that the various communities played at the time of the merger, but also as a beacon for the generations to come.

“Lo was right in saying that Malaysia was formed at a great sacrifice by the people of Sabah and Sarawak. And for the powers that be in Kuala Lumpur to honour whatever had been promised to the Borneo states in the Malaysia Agreement (MA63),” said Chong who became Sabah’s third Chinese CM under the rotation system implemented by then Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir.

“Things like this should be in the history books,” he said.
