Crocker Range Festival replaces Pesta Koningau

23rd November, 2015

By RAZEEF RAHMAN

KENINGAU: Crocker Range Festival will become an annual celebration here to replace Koningau Fair. It aims to introduce the cultures of rural communities as well as help improve the local socio-economy and provide an opportunity for villagers to market their agricultural produce and local products.

The announcement was made by Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman in his speech at the launch of the Keningau Crocker Range Festival 2015 at the school hall of SM Ken Hwa Keningau, on Saturday.

The text of his speech was read by Deputy Chief Minister, Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan who is also Minister of Infra- structure Development.

Musa also welcomed the initiatives and efforts of the organisers to ensure the success of the festival by applying a varied and interesting concept.

“This festival is the best platform to continue to protect and uphold culture, especially for the younger generation and is a positive sign for a better future for the country and the people, especially in the context of further strengthening the spirit of unity and harmony,” he said.

Musa hoped the festival would continue to be a catalyst and contribute significantly to the socio-economic development, while strengthening the spirit of unity and solidarity to guarantee the stability, security and prosperity in Sabah.

He urged organisers to constantly improve the festival so it can continue to attract local and international visitors. Meanwhile, Keningau District Officer, Yusop Osman said an allocation of RM15,000 was approved for the festival. He requested for 100 acres of land to build a cultural village so that various activities can be conducted at the same venue annually.

Meanwhile, the Miss Beauty Pageant was won by Kimberly Vung from Penampang followed by first runner-up Isabelle Lansing also from Penampang, Dewina Peter from Tambunan in third place and Marvenna Jitol of Kota Belud and Edna Edmund from Penampang in fourth and fifth places respectively.

Other awards, Miss Friendly was won by Sharon Chew, Miss Photogenic by Kimberly Vung and Miss Natural Beauty by Debbie Lungina.
