BEAUFORT: His love for Umno has never faded despite him leaving the party to become an independent, says Datuk Seri Anifah Aman.

“Do not misunderstand, I am not a kaki lompat (a person who switches party wantonly).

“Umno is the first and only party I joined. My love for Umno still runs deep.

“But I need to be mindful of potentially offending other people’s feelings when I keep pushing to restore Sabah’s rights in accordance with MA63 (Malaysian Agreement 1963), ” the former Kimanis MP told the crowd during a ceramah in Kampung Malawaring, Bongawan, on Wednesday night.

Anifah said he showed up for one common purpose, which is to defeat Parti Warisan Sabah.

“That is why I want to be with Umno on this stage.

“To me, it is important what the party fights for, which is maintaining security by rejecting the Sabah Temporary Pass (PSS).

“Even if I was not invited to talk, I would still come to meet the voters here, ” he said.

The former foreign minister claimed that allowing PSS would create a bigger problem in the state when the pass holders decide to have children of their own.

He also took a swipe at Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal, claiming that the Chief Minister hardly visited the constituency, except now due to the ongoing by-election.
