Show your love for Malaysia by waving flag

Date:

KUCHING: Waving the Jalur Gemilang (national flag) is the simplest way for us to demonstrate our love and respect for the country, said Jefferson Jamit Unyat.

“The spirit of patriotism should continue even after August and September,” said the Bukit Goram assemblyman during his speech in conjunction with the Jalur Gemilang Convoy (KJG) here yesterday (Sept 11).

He was launching the district level KJG Programme convoy organised by the Kapit District Information Department (JaPen Kapit) and the Sarawak Public Communication Unit (UKAS) Kapit at the Kapit Division State Government Complex.

The convoy, which passed through Pekan Bleteh, Pekan Kapit and Jalan Selirik, was also joined by eight vehicles from various federal and state government agencies in Kapit and two police escorts.

Kapit District, Information Officer, Mohd Saufi Omar said the programme aimed to further enliven the National Month celebration, especially Malaysia Day which would be celebrated on Sept 16.

“Due to the ongoing pandemic, the celebration cannot be carried out as usual. So, it is hoped this convoy will invoke the spirit of the National Month celebration,” he added.

Also held during the event was the presentation of a prize to Canigia Udin, runner-up of the Sarawak State Level Speech Competition 2021; she represented the Kapit district in the competition.
