of them are serving as teachers, health officers and police personnel, and many
of them are in the rural areas,” the chief minister said.
in his speech, he reiterated that state civil servants would receive a bonus of
two months’ basic salary or a minimum of RM2,000 before Christmas.

us pray that Sarawak stays peaceful and prosperous so that we can increase the
state’s revenue,” the chief minister said.

cannot be given to federal civil servants due to a difference in policy between
the Sarawak and federal governments.
