KOTA KINABALU: Former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman is expected to be sworn in as Sungai Sibuga assemblyman this evening.

Sabah speaker for the state legislative assembly Syed Abas Syed Ali told the media that Musa, through his aide, had informed the speaker’s office that he would like to be sworn in today.

“They have promised to be present at the office today. So we are making all the preparations as usual,” he said when contacted.

He added however that there had been no confirmation so far on whether the ceremony would take place or not.

“If he shows up, we will carry on with the ceremony.

“We don’t know whether it is going to be today, but they promised to come today. If not today, we can always reschedule,” he said.

Musa returned to the country on Tuesday after spending a little over three months overseas to seek medical treatment.

He has until Sept 11 to take his oath, otherwise he risks losing his Sungai Sibuga seat.

Yesterday, police arrested the former Sabah Umno liaison chief to facilitate investigations into allegations of criminal intimidation against Sabah Head of State Juhar Mahiruddin.

The Magistrate’s Court however rejected the police’s application for a remand.

It is understood that Musa is currently at a private hospital in Klang Valley for medical reasons.
