People play billiard in settlement outside Kota Kinabalu where residents are mostly Filipino migrants
People play billiard in a settlement outside Kota Kinabalu where residents are mostly Filipino migrants September 18, 2012. With a general election due within seven months, the 13-party ruling Barisan Nasional coalition is banking on Sabah and neighbouring Sarawak state on Borneo island to prolong its 55-year grip on power. Residents of Sabah complain about competition from Filipino and Indonesian migrants for jobs in the oil and gas-rich region, whose revenues are mostly channelled to the federal government and where one in five people lives on less than $1 a day.
