KIMANIS (Bernama): Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) candidate in the Kimanis parliamentary by-election, Datuk Karim Bujang (pic), on Wednesday (Jan 8) denied an allegation that a diploma he obtained from a university in the United Kingdom was fake.

Karim said he was awarded the Higher National Diploma in Business Studies, which he said was equivalent to a degree, after a two-year study, which was sponsored by the Sabah Economic Development Corporation (Sedco).

"I was given study leave with full-pay in 1977 and 1978 by Sedco. I got the diploma about 40 years ago,” he said when met at the Batu 6 district polling centre (PDM) near here on a posting of the diploma, said to be fake, that was gone viral on social media.

In another development, Karim claimed that Barisan Nasional was deliberately making a political issue of the proposed implementation of the Sabah Temporary Pass (PSS) and used it as campaign material for the by-election, despite the idea coming from BN when it was the ruling party in the country.- Bernama
