KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Jake Jikulin Nointin has been reelected unopposed as president of the Sabah Karate Association (SKA).

It will be Jake’s third consecutive term holding the top post after winning uncontested in 2016 and 2018.
Datuk Herman Tiongsoh also retained the deputy president post without contest during SKA Annual General Meeting 2020/2021 conducted at a hotel here recently.

The four vice presidents, incumbents Johnny Chong, Richard Ajak and Ag Hashim Md Zain will be joined by Godfrey Anthony, who previously served as one of the committee members.

Ampiu @ Abdu Halim Kainsor, who was assistant secretary general in the previous lineup, is the new addition among the SKA committee members, joining Makedoline Ripin Tulis, Anney Henry, Grace Tiwon, Frederick Kiamut and Iskhandar Damis who will remain in office for the new term (2021-2022).

Long-serving secretary general Julian Chin was also retained and will be assisted by new face Jonnas Joitol (assistant secretary general) while David U will also continue to serve as treasurer general.

Meanwhile, Jake expressed hope that karate activities will pick up pace especially as the state had entered the fourth phase of the national recovery plan.

“There was not much (karate) activity because of the pandemic but now that we are under phase four, I certainly hope things will get better to allow us to organise more activities,” he said after his re-election as SKA president.

He added that one of the main focuses of the association will be to prepare the state squad
for the Malaysia Games (Sukma) 2022, in which he said has remained active.

In another development, SKA has moved to assist its registered branches and clubs throughout the state with each receiving fund amounting to RM1,000.
