Longhouse handed over to Rungus community

Kudat: The Sabah State Federal Development Office (PPPNS) on Friday handed over a 15-door long house for the Rungus Matunggong community to the Matunggong Sub-District Office here.

The handing over of the Kampung Membatu Laut long house was conducted by State Development Officer Datuk Ruji Ubi.

In a statement issued after the ceremony, Ruji said the long house was the third to be ready and handed over to the respective district offices this year.

"The building of a modern long house equipped with basic amenities to replace the traditional long house is hoped will enable the recipients to live a more comfortable life," he added.

He said the long house would be officially opened by Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Maximus Ongkili this Dec 3.

According to Ruji, PPPNS had built 20 long houses and 20 more currently under construction.
