The Ministry of Development, yesterday afternoon, also held a Qurban Ceremony in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidil Adha.
10 buffaloes were slaughtered this year. The distribution of the sacrificial meats were officiated by Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Suhaimi bin Haji Gafar, the Minister of Development and his deputy, Awang Haji Marzuke bin Haji Moksin. The recipients were 80 of the Asnaf from Mukim Berakas and Mukim Gadong. The annual ceremony was organised by the Land Department. Apart from fostering closer relations between the ministry's officers and personnel, such event is also hope to instil the spirit of giving alms as a sign of gratitude for all the blessings from Allah SWT.
