The 9Th Methodist Convention - The Future Of sarawak From A Christian Perspective - Part 14

In looking at the future of Sarawak critically with his expertise in this field, Tan Kee Hian enlightened the audience with his thought-provoking views. On top of that, he was more than generous to shed light on the top development need of Sarawak.

Citing the leadership, governance and values as the present top priority, Kee Hian said," Being legal and in compliance (with "system" and the rules) is just not enough."

Be critical-minded and develop a balanced thinking. " Let's look at the excesses," Brother Kee Hian told a congregation of 1,300 Methodist church members.

Also, not to be overlooked is whether trust in leadership and governance justified? Are there no absolute truths? Kee Hian posed these fundamental questions to the church members to critically look at our leaders.

Our values have to be just as important. "There has to be a good sense of fairness and equity. We must respect human and traditional rights. Respect also the Rule of Law wholeheartedly. Everybody must be held accountable for actions and outcomes. Leaders must be seen to be proper and just by the people," Kee Hian put the challenge to the floor.
