About 120 members of PKR from Mukim Limbahau in Papar are reported to have quit the party to join Umno.
Former Papar PKR committee member Camillus Ginibun said today they were motivated to make the switch by the 1Malaysia concept which they felt took into account the welfare and development of all the races.
“Under the 1Malaysia concept, no community including the Kadazan, Dusun and Murut, will be isolated from development. “All along, the development we have enjoyed was provided by the Barisan Nasional government. PKR is only good at making promises,” he said in a statement in Kota Kinabalu.
