PBS: Delay in choosing native and village chiefs disrespects customs of natives

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Sabah today called on the Parti Warisan Sabah-led government to quickly select native and village chiefs in all districts, particularly the Kadazan, Dusun, Murut and Rungus (KDMR) areas.

These posts were vacated after the en bloc sacking of all native and village chiefs by the Warisan-led government which took over from Barisan Nasional four months back.

“The absence of native and village chiefs has somewhat created chaos in the administration of culture and traditions, such as solemnising engagements or marriages and even presiding or resolving disputes over native customs,” said PBS deputy president Maximus Ongkili today.

He said matters involving native culture and traditions were important and could not be taken lightly.
