Tracking royal bloodlines

Malaysian security forces under Esscom have been keeping a close watch, especially for any Sulu invaders, in Sabah's east coast Semporna waters. However, their so-called leaders appear to favour the Court route more to get at Malaysia.

“MAGPA sa-ula-ula dumawhat sin wayruon hangkatuh dugo timataytay ha ka-ugat ugatan niya dugo sin Sultan Sharif-Ul Hashim.”

Translated into English, the Tausug saying means, “Attempt to aspire when there is none, even a drop of Sultan Sharif ul-Hashim’s blood in all his veins”.
