KUCHING: Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu on Saturday night called for the quick completion of the Rumah Dayak complex here.

Although 10 years have passed since the old Rumah Dayak was demolished to make way for the new building, Jabu said construction work on the building of the Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU) still went on with little headway.

“I’m really concerned about the future of the SDNU building,” he said at the 50th anniversary dinner of Sarakup Indu Dayak Sarawak (SIDS) at Kuching Civic Centre.

Among those present at the function were Dayak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) president and Dayak Cultural Foundation managing trustee Datuk Amar Leonard Linggi Jugah, SIDS president Senator Dato Sri Empiang Jabu and SIDS advisor Dato Sri Tra Zehnder.

The new Rumah Dayak complex is to comprise an 11-storey office block and seven units of four-storey commercial block on a 32,000 square feet site owned by SDNU in a prime area at Jalan Satok.

Its construction and progress has long been plagued by many issues ever since work started following the demolition of the old Rumah Dayak in 1997.

Prior to its demolition, the old Rumah Dayak was the pride of the Dayak community in the heart of Kuching city.

Jabu, the most senior Iban politician in the State Cabinet, said he, like any other Dayaks, would not want to see any more delays to the construction of the building.

“The completion of the building should be expedited because it is after all the building that is supposed to symbolise Dayak unity and pride,” he said.

On SIDS, Jabu said its leaders and members should always position themselves to work closely with the government of the day.

“SIDS like any other organisation must not and should never be used by any quarters to fight the government or to distance itself away from the government,” he said.

Instead of fighting the government, he said members of SIDS should make use of the organisation as a continuous platform as well as a very important institution to link with and understand government policies and development agenda.

“The next 4,835 days or 13 years is very crucial for everybody in Sarawak - we must ensure that there is continued political stability, peace, racial harmony and private sector confidence for uninterrupted development transformation in Sarawak so that the rural areas will not be left behind,” he said.

Jabu said he welcomed ideas from SIDS especially those concerning rural development.

“SIDS should together with the rest of the people in Sarawak work unselfishly to narrow the gap between the rural and the urban areas,” he said.

He also called for more intellectuals from all professions and disciplines to be recruited by SIDS to further strengthen the organisation.

“Make use of SIDS as an intelligent platform for capacity building. SIDS members should continuously update themselves with current affairs and must not submit to the old idea that women should be confined to the kitchen and to the home only,” he said.

Jabu also spoke of his wish to have potential astronauts from the Dayak community.

Towards this end, he called on SIDS to conduct more programmes to inculcate greater interest in science and technology among the newer Dayak generations.

“I may not live to see the moment when Iban astronauts blast off to space, but I believe we can do it one day if we have the will,” he said.

During the dinner, awards were presented to long-serving members and office-bearers of SIDS.

There was also the cutting of the 50th anniversary cake.

The late Datin Amar Margaret Linggi, who was the SIDS honorary treasurer, was also honoured with a posthumous award.

Her husband Datuk Amar Leonard Linggi accepted the award which was presented by Jabu.

Meanwhile, Empiang in her speech said SIDS currently had 10,000 members from its 23 branches and 86 units throughout the State.

She added that ever since SIDS was formed in May, 1957, it had achieved a lot, particularly in reviving the art of pua kumbu weaving, promoting Iban ethnic designs in textile printing, as well as dignifying the status of Dayak women by improving the traditional dress and stopping the sales of old ‘topless’ Dayak women photos.

It's meant as a 12 storey (?) office complex with a small 4 storey shopping podium.

The design will be similar to Menara Zecon. In fact, it'll be exactly the same, just that it'll be in a lighter colour with more glass. And how would it be a disaster to build taller buildings in the area? What's the worse that could happen, St Joseph Primary School's view of the sun is blocked?

Besides, tall buildings are meant as large public statements. Like Plaza Rakyat in Kuala Lumpur. 15 years down the line, a gaping hole in Puduraya, 6 revisions, ambitions to go higher than the Petronas Towers and still nothing: a statement of large dreams but overly lofty ambitions.

Is this gov't (taxpayer) funded? Or is the SDNU, its owner presumeably, really loaded? Or maybe TPK has a hand in it!
