I am sick of Sarawakian Chong Chieng Jen, the MP for Bandar Kuching. After 43 years of being Malaysian, he still considers Malaysians from other states of our nation as FOREIGNERS.
Recently he criticised the authorities for recruiting ‘foreigners’ to man 200 immigration officer posts in Sarawak. He was annoyed that only 18 locals were part of the 200.
A senior academic from Peninsular Malaysia attached to a Kuching-based university told Malaysiakini:
“If we took this myopic view of things, thousands of Sarawakians in Peninsular Malaysia would have to come home (to fill up the positions) and end up being unemployed since there is insufficient work for them here.”
“Now, what special qualification does being born Sarawakian endow an individual to man immigration counters? By extension, does this mean that if any similar job needs to be done in KL, Penang, Johor or Sabah, we only employ non-Sarawakians?”
