Hi. They call me Cikgu (teacher) Mansor. I was actually never a teacher, not a teacher with a certificate – unqualified, to make it short. That was what my brother, Dato Sheikh Adnan tried to tell me in 2001, before I start my tuition school.
“How can you teach? You are not a teacher…” was the simple blunt comment coming from the mouth of Mr. Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, a position my eldest brother Adnan hold until January 2008.
I simply answered him, “I have the confidence…”
Confidence that is.
I am a gradute of University of Life.
A permanent resident myself, and having to go thru the same ‘citizenship’ exam in 1997, and only getting my Brunei’s citizenship at the age of 38 in 1998 makes me a very angry young man. Angry with Brunei’s two sided ‘citizenship’ law. A law so outdated and needs to be changed.
AND I will do it – even if it would bring consequences.
I will help as much as possible my Chinese friends get their rightfully Brunei’s citizenship in my tiny might, for I ony know one thing:
I WILL NEVER STOP…!!!
