MATU: The Deputy Minister for Integrity and Ombudsman, Datuk Dr. Juanda Jaya, has been distributing free meat to residents of Jemoreng in connection with Hari Raya Korban every year.

All facets of society have highly accepted this noble and generous gesture.

This is due to the fact that on this significant day of celebration, the locals were all made joyful by the distribution of free beef weighing 10 tonnes to more than 5,000 heads of households.

Tuai Rumah Bareng Atok thanked the Jemoreng assemblyman for kindly providing free meat to everyone in Jemoreng area, including non-Muslims.

“It may be claimed that all of his distribution is equal, regardless of our different backgrounds, including us who are non-Muslims, and this makes us happy,” the longhouse chief said.

He thanked him once more in front of the media and said, “We the members of Iban community here are very appreciative for this gift.”

Lai Elan Sabeli

For community of Kuala Matu, Penghulu Lai Elan Sabeli, he pointed out that every Hari Raya Aidiladha, Datuk Juanda always comes forward to give donations, which demonstrates Juanda’s compassion as a leader.

On the rep’s this year’s gift of the 10 tonnes of meat, Lai said: “Whatever, I am also grateful to the Sarawak government and to Datuk Juanda Jaya for this contribution. Thank you for your concern on this auspicious day; may it continue to be blessed,” he said.

Mesaleh@Che Jeni Shahdan, the Penghulu of Kampung Jemoreng, also applauded Datuk Juanda Jaya’s efforts by returning to the area yesterday to disperse all the donations at the Matu District Mosque.

“Once more, I believe this is the sixth time he has given away this free meat in this area, not just to us Muslims but to all our non-Muslim brothers, from the Iban and Chinese communities.

“Thank you for everything Datuk Juanda, Happy Hari Raya Aidiladha to all,” he said.
