Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) was a political deception carefully crafted by the British and Tunku Abdul Rahman to hand over Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak as a gift by the British to enlarge Malaya in 1963.
Therefore, the YAB Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari has to be corrected when the Chief Minister said the proposed amendments to the federal constitution would reflect the true spirit and intention of the parties who inked the MA63 - see The Borneo Post October 16, 2021.
This error by the YAB Chief Minister has to be corrected so that Sarawakians should know the truth and not to believe the untruth.
The true spirit and intention of MA63, was creating a malay super race and Malaya dominance of race, religion over the British colonial territories in Borneo. It was also a neo- colonization of Singapore Sabah and Sarawak by Malaya. President Soekarno of Indonesia was aware of the intention of this neo-colonialism crafted by the British and Tunku, which led to the confrontation between Indonesia and Malaysia called Borneo Confrontation from 1963 to 1966.
This neo-colonialism could be evidenced by using economic, cultural imperialism and conditional development strategies implemented by Malaya through the federal cabinet and Parliament to control and take resources of Sabah and Sarawak.
The federal government which is controlled by Malaya is estimated to have taken not less than RM200 billion of all Sarawak's wealth away annually for Malaya. It is also estimated that Sabah also has lost this same amount annually to Malaya.
The loss of marine wealth, oil and gas are too painful to bear by Sarawakians. Out of these, only a meagre return of about RM4 billion each year been given to Sarawak as development fund. For this reason, Sarawak had been lagging behind in development with many parts having no proper infrastructure.
Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg should know Sabah and Sarawak had been made dependents and beggars for funds and developments from the federal government since Malaysia came into existence in 1963.
The so much talk about equal partnership by Tunku Abdul Rahman to the run-up of Malaysia, was a political coup to take Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak as territories of Malaya, in which, after having acquired these colonial territories from Great Britain, then, change the name of Malaya to Malaysia from 16 September 1963.
Therefore, if the notion of amendments to the federal constitution is to incorporate the spirit of equality in partnership with Malaya is joke by a clown.
