KOTA KINABALU: Former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman has finally made his first appearance at the state legislative assembly after nearly 11 months of absence.

The Sungai Sibuga assemblyman from Umno took his seat as state opposition leader at the Sabah Assembly sitting on Tuesday (April 16).

Since the May 9 general election, Musa has not turned up for any of the assembly sessions, only appearing at the state assembly to take his oath in September last year.

Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, who held the opposition leader post, welcomed Musa to the house, announcing that the latter was now taking over as the opposition leader.

Musa, who is facing multiple charges of money laundering in connection with timber deals when he was chief minister, has maintained a low profile.

If he had failed to appear in the house during the current session, he would have risked losing his Sungai Sibuga seat.
