Longhouse chiefs receive appointment letters


KUCHING: Forty-one longhouse chiefs in Sebauh district here received their new appointment letters on Thursday (Oct 21).

Present to hand over the letter at the Sebauh Community Hall was Utilities Minister Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom.

During the event, Dr Rundi, who is the Kemena assemblyman, reminded the longhouse chiefs and community leaders to use their power based on the instructions issued by the State Secretary’s Office to ensure that Sarawak had the best grassroots leadership structure.

“To avoid any disputes among the people under your supervision, always refer to the district officer or Resident regarding government policies, including development projects if necessary,” he said, adding that as grassroots leaders they should have high discipline, integrity and knowledge.

Dr Rundi also hoped that all community leaders in Kemena, especially in Sebauh, would always remind and advise the communities under their care to assist the government in curbing the spread of Covid-19.

“Also, don’t forget to always adhere to standard operating procedures (SOPs) such as wearing face masks, washing hands with soap and water or hand sanitiser as well as practising social distancing.”
