Magnitude 3.0 quake rocks Keningau town

  • PDF

KENINGAU: Residents here were shocked when a magnitude 3.0 earthquake hit the town about 11.16am yesterday.

According to a statement from the Malaysian Meteorological Department, tremors could be felt around the epicentre at Latitude 05.03 North and Longitude 116.3 East, which is some 11km east of Keningau town.

The department said it was monitoring these developments and would update the public on the latest information.

Tremors were also felt in some government department buildings, shops and houses around town. However, no cracks in buildings were reported.

District police chief Deputy Superintendent Robert Salisip @ David told the media that there were no reports received by the police in relation to the incident.

“We have contacted all divisions of the district police headquarters here but did not get any report about the incident,” he said.

Robert also confirmed that he and his personnel were all inside the district police headquarters building here at the time and did not feel the tremors when it was reported.

Meanwhile, district Fire and Rescue Department deputy chief Sabri Mohd Hassan said he had received reports from Inland Revenue Board (IRB) employees here on the tremor.

He said IRB staff had called and reported that the tremor was felt in their building and asked for the department to come and examine the safety of their building.

“We sent a rescue unit to IRB and checked the condition of the building inside and outside, but did not find any cracks,” he said.

In relation to the incident, Sabri advised the public not to panic but to stay calm in all their dealings and continue to inform the authorities of any untoward incidents occurring in their area.

“If such an emergency happens, immediately open doors to check the availability of exits for evacuation because earthquakes can tighten doors, making it difficult to open.

“Do not rush out but look for the nearest shelter such as a table and cover your head,” he said.

Sabri said to prevent fires they should turn off all equipment that could cause a fire.

Meanwhile IRB staff members Immu Utas, 44, and her colleague Catherine Johnie, 49, said they felt the tremors, thereby causing the staff to leave the office and gathered at a car park building.

An inspection by the Fire and Rescue Department and the Public Works Department (PWD) found no cracks as a result of the tremor.

A resident Martin Limar who lives at Taman Juta here also felt the tremor at about 11.15 am.

He said the water tank in his house shook and pieces of furniture swayed.

Najib sees and hears people – Dompok

  • PDF

KENINGAU: Malaysia continues to progress because Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak sees and hears the people.

Upko president Tan Sri Bernard Dompok said the transformations brought by the Barisan Nasional (BN) government was all about what the people wanted.

“In the next election the prime minister will lead the BN and it is only fair for us to give him the mandate to run the country because of what he has done,” he said.

Dompok who wore a shirt with letterings that read “Saya Pilih Barisan” (I Choose Barisan), said this when launching the Keningau Upko divisional meeting on Sunday.

He pointed out the next election will be the first time Najib is taking the lead of the BN camp and to vote for the coalition would mean an endorsement of his leadership.

Dompok also stressed that cooperation among component parties in the coming election was vital to ensure victory for the BN and assured that Upko will play its part.

Also present at the launch were Keningau Upko chief Datuk Justin Guka who is also Bingkor assemblyman, information chief Datuk Donald Mojuntin, treasurer Datuk Marcus Mojigoh and deputy youth chief Masiung Banah.

“Not everything may have been delivered but it is getting there. Even for school examinations when students get 70 percent marks and above is considered a distinction.

“In Sabah for instance we have been appealing for a Royal Commission of Inquiry to find a permanent solution to the illegal immigrants problem and now it has been formed.”

Dompok who is also the Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister, said for now the inquiry needs to be given time to look into the issue and it should be supported by all.

“There are skeptics who said it is not good or it should be completed before the election but to me we have been waiting for it all these years, what is waiting a little while longer?

“Instead the people who are skeptical should instead come forward and help with the inquiry because this is their opportunity to set things right,” he stressed.

Dompok said transformations put in place by the Najib administration were not only physical but even in the mindset of the civil service and its coalition leaders towards giving recognition to many of the emotions expressed by the people.

“Take for instance the Native Court that will be built in Penampang. The prime minister himself came for the ground-breaking ceremony and that shows his sensitivity to the sentiment of the people.

“Our native court system such as the ‘sogit’ (penalty for wrongdoings) has long existed, even before the British came and it worked in preserving harmony among the communities.

“Our past leaders had the wisdom in ensuring that it is enshrined in our way of life by demanding for it when the formation of Malaysia was proposed and it was here in Keningau that took the lead,” he said referring to the pledge made followed the erection of the “Batu Sumpah” here in 1963.

Dompok also stressed Upko will continue to fight for what it feels is right for the people through its Citizenship Bureau led by Mojuntin, which has made inroads over citizenship issues and in introducing the Kadazandusun language in schools.

Eperolehan Dilaksanakan Di Sabah

  • PDF

KENINGAU, 7 Nov (Bernama) -- Pendedahan penggunaan sistem perolehan elektronik kerajaan, (ePerolehan)(eP) akan dilaksanakan di Sabah bagi memberi peluang kepada pembekal di negeri ini untuk berurus-niaga dengan pihak kerajaan secara atas talian.

Pengarah Projek Unit ePerolehan Datuk Mohd Shafiq Abdullah berkata perancangan masa depan adalah menjurus untuk menambah bilangan Pusat eP dan juga pusat eP@Desa di Sabah bagi memudahkan pembekal mendapatkan perkhidmatan mengenai ePerolehan secara menyeluruh.

"Unit eP akan menggiatkan lagi mempromosikan serta memberi lebih pendedahan kepada pembekal-pembekal mengenai sistem eP," katanya kepada Bernama selepas merasmikan Seminar Transformasi Perolehan peringkat Negeri Sabah di sini hari ini.

Mohd Shafiq berkata 6,812 pembekal di Sabah berdaftar dengan Kementerian Kewangan termasuk 3,502 bertaraf Bumiputera tetapi 51 peratus sahaja yang berkeupayaan eP daripada keseluruhan jumlah pembekal di Malaysia sebanyak 110,327 pembekal, sehingga 30 September lepas.

Beliau menyeru pembekal di Sabah berurusan secara aktif menerusi eP kerana daripada 4,603 pembekal berkeupayaan eP hanya 1,119 pembekal atau 26 peratus yang memuat naik katalog ke dalam sistem eP.

"Mengikut pemerhatian Kementerian Kewangan, agensi kerajaan persekutuan pada masa ini kurang menggunakan ekatalog.

Ini adalah kerana kurang pembekal memuat naik katalog ke dalam sistem," katanya.

Beliau berkata sistem eP menepati kehendak masa kini dengan menyaksikan pencapaian nilai transaksi di peringkat Sabah mencapai RM669 juta dari Januari sehingga Oktober lepas dengan bilangan Tempahan Pembelian Tempatan (LPO) sebanyak 87,368.

Mohd Shafiq berkata kerajaan akan menambah baik sistem perolehan elektronik kerajaan yang mampu menangani kehendak-kehendak pembekal yang lebih celik Internet dan perkembangan semasa.

"Menerusi penggunaan sistem eP secara bersepadu, perolehan kerajaan dapat dilakukan dengan cepat, tepat dan berintegriti" katanya.

Beliau berharap eP menjadi platform terbaik untuk semua pembekal yang ingin berurus niaga dengan kerajaan persekutuan dapat menggunakan sistem eP ini sepenuhnya agar hasrat dan matlamat kerajaan untuk mewujudkan masyarakat k-ekonomi dan berpendapatan tinggi dicapai menjelang wawasan 2020.

Seramai 150 pembekal di seluruh pantai barat selatan pedalaman atas Sabah di Keningau (Tenom, Nabawan, Keningau dan Tambunan) menyertai seminar secara percuma yang dikendalikan oleh syarikat Commerce Dot Com Sdn Bhd, rakan strategic pembangunan sistem eP.

Program eP@Desa turut diadakan di Kota Belud selain mengadakan kaunter perkhidmatan bertemu pelanggan di KK Times Square.
