Oath Stone will be restored, pledges Kurup
Published on: Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Kota Kinabalu: Sabahans should not unnecessarily worry about the delay in shifting the Keningau Oath Stone to the place where it will be permanently fixed and located.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, said:

"It's in good hands and the Oath Stone will be shifted in time. No value added will be seen to the Oath Stone if it is just shifted as it is as some quarters want it to be.

"The Government will not just shift the Oath Stone from where it is now but it will be done so and accorded with due respect at the place more honourable and befitting of the Oath Stone which is the bedrock of the formation of our country now known as Malaysia," he said.

"Furthermore, the missing words 'Kerajaan Malaysia Jamin' would also be reinstated on the plaque, Kurup added.


The opposition Star Chairman Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan and former State Secretary Tan Sri Simon Sipaun were among those who were critical over the delay by Kurup in ensuring that the Oath Stone with its original lost plaque's wording intact would be ready by 16.9.2016 in time for Malaysia Day celebrations.

Funding was cited as among the causes of the delay.
