KOTA KINABALU: After finally taking his oath as Sipitang Member of Parliament, it is hoped that Yamani Hafez Musa will be around to serve the constituency and people.
It is amazing what Hafez has done. He went missing since he won the P178 seat. It is really irresponsible of him as an elected representative, said Pritchard Gumbaris, who is the political secretary to Datuk Darell Leiking, Minister of International Trade and Industry.
Hafez, Pritchard said went missing for eight months without any reason and has neglected his responsibility.
“I would like to remind him that his job is to take care of his constituency and constituents. The people and his area need his attention, this is not a golf game where you can disappear as you like.
“Other constituencies are already in full swing…eight months is a long time and there are so many things he could have done. In Penampang, we have achieved much within five months and these do not include charity and welfare activities,” stressed Pritchard.
“I hope he doesn’t do another disappearing act after he is sworn in. In fact, I am of the opinion that he should step down and allow re-election for the people to vote for a more responsible representative,” said Pritchard.
Hafez won the P178 Sipitang seat after defeating Warisan’s candidate with a 850 votes majority in the 14th general election.-SabahNewsToday
