Kanul challenges Pairin to a debate
Kanul Gindol, who is Datuk Dr Jeffrey Gapari Kitingan's political secretary, is challenging Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS)president Deputy Chief Minister Huguan Siou Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Pairin Kitingan to a-20-minutes political debate on the current political scenario in Sabah.
He said the debate could be held after Sept 16 (the day in 1963 when Sabah, Sarawak and Malaya formed Malaysia)in Pairin's hometown Tambunan or at Hongkod Koisaan, the Kadazandusun Cultural Association headquarters and multipurpose hall in Bahang, Jalan Penampang.
Kanul said the debate would focus on Pairin's statement on Tuesday where he said the Opposition leaders in Sabah were trouble makers. Though Pairin did not named the leaders, it was obvious that he was referring, amongst others, his younger brother Dr Jeffrey who is Parti Keadilan Rakyat national Vice President.
Kanul is so daring to throw the challenge as he has his boss, Dr Jeffrey, backing him all the way. Why after Sept 16?
