Free Movie Attract 5,000 Rural Folks

"Free movie attracts 5,000 rural folks
1st December, 2008
free movie screening by the Information Ministry attracted more than 5,000
people from Nabawan and Sook to the tamu grounds here on Saturday.

It was reminiscent of the 60s and 70s when rural folks were often treated to a free
film that they used to refer to as “wayang piri” (wayang free). This time in Nabawan, it was a showing of the local comedy “Korek Lubang, Tutup Lubang”.

Officers and staff of the Information Department will be moving from
one village to the next and from one town to another after this “premier” show
to enable as many people as possible to enjoy the movies at no charge at

Information Minister Dato’ Ahmad Shabery Cheek spoke to the crowd before
the screening and said he hoped it would help to promote unity by bringing the
people together.

The free movie shows are also a way of disseminating government policies to the masses and the latest information on development programmes. Also present were Nabawan district officer Bubudan O.T Majalu, Nabawan assemblyman Datuk Bobbey Suan and Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah president Tan Sri Joseph Kurup. Tenom member of parliament Raime Unggi also joined the crowd as did the principal secretary of the Ministry of Information Datuk Kamaruddin Siarab and other community leaders.

Reading from the above article, it is indeed very sad for Sabah when the UMNOed BN Government treat the rural folks with free movie........

Is the Pensaingan People only worth a free movie?
