SIMANGGANG: Assistant Minister of Community Wellbeing and Simanggang assemblyman Datuk Francis Harden Hollis today organised a meeting with selected Tuai Rumah at his Simanggang ADUN Service Centre.

The meeting was to inquire on the status of activities held by Village Safety and Development Committees (JKKKs) and their current organisational management, including the number of household heads under their respective jurisdictions.

It was also to find out on the development progress in villages and parks under the minor rural project (MRP) and rural transformation programme (RTP) projects.

During the meeting, they discussed on the leadership qualities of a longhouse chief or Tuai Rumah in fostering cooperation and developing their village in an efficient and transparent manner and on the role and the responsibilities of a JKKK as an organisation.

“I always reminded all the JKKK chairmen that the JKKKs have to be managed transparently and systematically.

“It is important to have proper documentation as it serves as an official reference to any activity,” said Harden.

There are six important things that the JKKK needs to emphasise on, namely to hold scheduled meetings, to present financial reports, to keep records as documentation, to draw up a calendar of annual activities, to record projects built and to send reports to the district office, he added.

Harden also hoped that all Tuai Rumah or chairmen in longhouses and villages will be able to cooperate and most importantly aligned themselves with the current government.

“Do not be easily deceived by the incitement of the opposition who always finds fault in the government’s doings,” he said.

Among those who attended the meeting were chairman of JKKK Kpg Nyakai Baroh Tuai Rumah Japing Gema and its secretary Bayum Lasa; the new Chairman of JKKK Taman Tiara Biju Anggat; its secretary Bruno Abu and its treasurer Rufus Ikau. Biju Anggat was appointed to take over from Tuai Rumah Numpang Jimi who went into retirement.
