KOTA KINABALU, PHILIPPINES - A couple days ago, the Philippine government revealed that their acquisition of Sabah had proved to be nothing more but a pure disaster. Now, the people of Sabah, are already preparing for their independance as the Philippine government continues to talk about what to do with the Sabah situation.
According to news sources, native people of Sabah have already crowned a King, by the name of Juhar Mahiruddin, who served as the Yang di-Pertuan Negari when Sabah was a Malaysian state. The people of Sabah have expressed their desire to form an independant state, a monarchy in particular.
Amaluddin Sahar, a police officer in Kota Kinabalu, a native of Sabah said, "We are ready, we never wanted to become part of the Philippines. We never considered ourselves Filipino. We speak Malay, not Filipino."
According to recent polls, the majority of Sabahans viewed the Philippine acquisition as negative.
If successful, if the Philippines give Sabah its sovereignty, then Sabah will become the second Malaysian state to become independant in the 21st century. The other was Sarawak, which became an independant republic.
