KOTA KINABALU: The PKR discipline board has sacked its Inanam assemblyman Kenny Chua for allegedly joining forces with Tan Sri Musa Aman in a bid to topple Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal’s Warisan-led state government.
Its chairman Datuk Ahmad Kasim said Chua, who is Sabah state assistant finance minister, was seen in pictures with Musa and a group of assemblymen on Wednesday (July 29) announcing plans to take over the state government.
He said Chua's presence was also reconfirmed by Sabah PKR.
“PKR does not tolerate and will allow for any of its elected representatives to betray the people’s mandate, ” he said.
Chua was among 13 assemblymen from the ruling state coalition parties – Warisan, Upko, PKR and DAP – to attempt to take over the state government through defections to Musa's alliance.
Sabah DAP’s nominated assemblyman Ronnie Loh was also sacked by DAP for joining Musa.
Another PKR nominated assemblyman Jafari Waliam, who belonged to Datuk Seri Azmin Ali's group that left PKR earlier this year, had been suspended previously.
He was also part of Musa's alliance.
