KUCHING: Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri James Jemut Masing has mooted the establishment of scholarships under prominent Sarawakian youth.

“I have read that four of our young Sarawakians had done well internationally — Pandelela Rinong, Nicodemus Manggoi Moses, Bonnie Bunyau Gustin and Francisca Luhong James.

“Let us honour and remember their achievements by giving scholarships under their names in their respective fields, so that our younger generation could be trained and continue to give us honour,” he said on Monday (May 10).

“To the four, I offer my heartiest congratulations. I’m very proud of their international achievements. It proves that Sarawakians are more than capable if we are given the opportunities.

“We must remember that these four young people are Malaysians of Sarawak origin. Let Malaysia and Sarawak both honour their international achievements.”

National diver Pandelela recently won widespread praise from fellow Sarawakians and Malaysians after clinching Malaysia’s first gold medal in the women’s 10m platform final at the FINA Diving World Cup 2021 in Japan.

Nicodemus lifted 190kg to win the men’s +88kg event while national powerlifter Bonnie emerged victorious in the 2021 World Para Powerlifting World Cup in Bangkok.

Meanwhile, the 69th Miss Universe competition is coming up and Francisca, the reigning Miss Universe Malaysia 2020, will be representing the country.
