Future blur for resettled Penans

Aid from the government and Sarawak Energy Berhad are only ‘cosmetic and short-term’ solutions that don't equip Penans for their new life, claims lawyer Abun Sui Anyit


KUCHING: The semi-nomadic Penan community now relocated from their village in Long Wat due to the construction of Murum Dam are in a daze and clueless about what the future holds.

Resettled in their new longhouse at Tegulang, the community however is uncertain and to some extent afraid, said their spokesman and lawyer Abun Sui Anyit.
