The duty of a Penghulu and Ketua Kampung is not an easy task. Their role and responsibility are increasingly challenging as the need and hope of the mukim and village residents move towards the growth and development of a mukim and village. Yang Berhormat Awang Hanapi Bin Mohd Siput, Member of the Legislative Council was speaking at the voting and selection of Penghulu Mukim and Ketua Kampung of Bukit Sawat, Belait District.
Yang Berhormat added, with the decreasing number of village residents due to migration or occupation, it has become a challenge to plan and implement the mukim and village activities under the respective supervision. In this matter, it is the role of the mukim and village residents including the involvement of youths in community activities specifically to become members of the mukim and village consultative councils.
The ceremony ran concurrently with the voting of the sole candidate for the Penghulu of Mukim Bukit Sawat, 56 year-old Awang Haji Md.Salleh Bin Haji Othman. Meanwhile the sole candidate for the Ketua Kampung of Bukit Sawat is Awang Mohammad Bin Abdullah @ Lim Swee Ann, aged 50. The results will be presented and forwarded for presentation. Also present were Yang Berhormat Awang Haji Abdul Hamid bin Haji Mumin, Member of the Legislative Council and Awang Redzuan Bin Haji Ahmad, Acting Belait District Officer.
