Rumah Dayak ready for use by mid next year: SDNU
By Jacob Achoi

KUCHING: The long-awaited Rumah Dayak here is expected to open its doors by the middle of next year.

Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU) publicity chief, Dr John Brian Anthony, told reporters yesterday that the construction of the first phase of the project was progressing well.

“It will be ready for occupation by June next year,” he said after a meeting between SDNU committee members and the Fire Prevention Council Malaysia (FIPCOM).

He said the first phase of the project, which comprised a block of shophouses, was about 80 per cent completed and they would be fully operational by June.

The second phase is what he said is the “main tower” is also progressing very well.

According to him, the construction of the new Rumah Dayak started since 1997, but was delayed due to “documentation gap” which had been sorted out.

The total cost of Rumah Dayak is believed to be around RM10 million and SDNU still needs about RM6 million to complete it.

John also said SDNU would develop its land in Sibu for the construction of 24 shophouses.

The piece of land in Bintangor, Sarikei and Sri Aman would also be developed for similar purpose, he added.

As a result of the briefing yesterday, SDNU is considering undertaking a fire safety promotion programme for longhouses in rural areas.

The idea came about following several fire incidents in longhouses, where mostly Ibans are living.

“We (SDNU) are seriously thinking of having fire safety promotion programme in rural areas in view of the many incidents of fire in longhouses.”

“And we will work with FIPCOM and Bomba to work out more details,” said John after the briefing.

John added that there were many issues that needed to be taken into consideration before the Union can start the programme.

SDNU also congratulated the appointment of Datuk Seri Idris Jala as minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, while at the same time supported Minister of Rural and Regional Development Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, to bring more infrastructure development to Sabah and Sarawak in the next Malaysian Plan.

The Union strongly hoped that the provision of water and electricity supply will be intensified to rural areas in the coming Malaysian Plan.

John also told reporters that SDNU will have its triennial delegates’ assembly (TGA) in December to elect the office bearers for a three-year term.

No date was fixed, but John said it will be before Christmas.

He also said the union was still calling for interested people to join the Borneo safari slotted on Sept 19 and ends at Pontianak on Sept 23.

Entry for the safari is RM1,000.
