PBB Members have Been Fooled By Taib Mahmud and Jabu Numpang

Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) is a back bone for the Barisan Nasional in Sarawak. If we look back at the history of PBB, it was formed from the combination of three parties in Sarawak, the Parti Negara Sarawak (PANAS)-Malays, the Barisan Rakyat Jati Sarawak (BARJASA)-Malay/Melanaus and the Parti Pesaka Anak Sarawak (PESAKA-Iban on April 30, 1973.Tun Jugah Barieng was the first president of the party until his death in 1981, when he was replaced by the current Chief Minister of Sarawak, Taib Mahmud.Hence we can say that the members of the party are divided into two groups, the Malay/Melanau-Muslim which is lead by Taib Mahmud and the Iban/dayak group which is lead by Alfred Jabu.

The two Stooges that Fooled the Malays and Ibans

Taib Mahmud hailed from Mukah whereas Alfred Jabu is from Betong. In the PBB these two veteran politicians are the most powerful men. They can do anything that they would like to do. One of these are the diversion of monies from another areas to their hometowns Betong and Mukah. I have written this here, how the monies from the federal government which were meant for other divisions had been diverted by Jabu Numpang and Taib Mahmud to Betong and Mukah respectively.

Let's first look at Betong. Betong is just a cowboy town located in the interior  of Sarawak. In the 80s, Betong was only known as a home for RENTAP, a popular Iban warrior that fought Rajah Brooke in the 19th century. But now compare to the rest of it neeighbouring towns like Seratok, Sarikei and Sri Aman, Betong is far more developed. The people of Betong must thanks Alfred Jabu for his efforts in diverting most of the developments for the other areas , for instance the Technical School, the Polytechnic College, Mara Junior College , and many more, to this small town.
As for Taib Mahmud, he is not only diverting  the monies but he robbed all the monies allocated for other divisions to the nothern part of Sarawak under it baby project the SCORE.
The Ibans and the Malays should by now realised that they had been fooled by these two leaders. The Malay in the coastal areas such as in Simunjan, Kabong, Lingga still far behind in term of development compared to the Melanau-Muslims in Mukah.Taib for the past 40 years have been using Islam to to gain the support of the Malay but neglected them in development. 

For the Ibans, after almost 47 years under the rule of BN they remained the poorest group in Sarawak. If the census on the  household income had been done propely, I believe that more than 90 percents of the Iban in the longhouses are still lived under the poverty line. But beside this fact why the Iban still vote for BN, the questions which most of the political critics in Malaysia very difficult to answer.

The state election if not this year will be held by first quarter of next year. We hope that the  Malays and Ibans are now realised  that they had been fooled by Taib Mahmud and Alfred Jabu. This should be translated to the election by VOTING Taib and Alfred Jabu, and the PBB out!
