I remember Tun Abdul Rahman Yakub as a great leader of Sarawak in the seventies.
One of his most notable achievements was to bring the communists to a roundtable peace-talk that eventually ended the years-long subversive movements in Sarawak. The peace-making was bloodless and it paved the way for Sarawak to prosper.
At that time I was still a student of Chung Cheng Secondary School. I went through the turbulent time and I still have a sea of memories of it.
