KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Umno will carry out a general election dry run while getting more of its 413,000-odd members to register as voters. 

Sabah Umno chairman Datuk Musa Aman Musa has directed all 20 divisions in the state to be involved in the dry run. 

“Elections can be held at any time from now till April 2004. We must make sure our machinery is ready,” he said. 

He added that the division heads would go to the ground to meet the people. 

Food fair and walkathon 

PETALING JAYA: Every year, the Rotary Club here spends more than RM100,000 to help several hundred children in four primary schools to cope better in their studies. 

The money is used to provide breakfast for about 500 children every day, so that they do not go hungry, and buy uniforms, shoes and bags for selected children. 

To raise funds for such projects and community service involving disabled children, the club is organising a walkathon and charity food fair at the Vivekananda Tamil Primary School in Jalan 227 here on Sunday.  

Proceeds from the sales will go to the club’s charity foundation.
