OccupationPolitician

Datuk Mohamaddin bin Ketapi (born 3 June 1957) is a Malaysian politician who served as the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture in the Pakatan Harapan (PH) administration under former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad from July 2018 to the collapse of the PH administration in February 2020. He has served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Lahad Datu since October 2019[2] and Silam from May 2018 to October 2019, Member of the Sabah State Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Segama since September 2020 and Lahad Datu from August 1986 to October 1990. He also served as the State Assistant Minister of Industrial and Rural Development of Sabah in the United Sabah Party (PBS) state administration under former Chief Minister Joseph Pairin Kitingan from 1986 to 1990. He is a member of the Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM), a party aligned with the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition. He was also member of the Malaysian United Indigenous Party (BERSATU), a component party of the ruling Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) and Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalitions, member of the Heritage Party (WARISAN) and member of the PBS. He has also served as the 1st State Chairman of PBM of Sabah since August 2022. On 30 October 2021, he left WARISAN and became independent in support for GRS.[3] Later, he officially became a member of BERSATU on 26 November 2021.[4] However on 28 June 2022, he left BERSATU and became independent again in support for BN and GRS ruling coalitions after joining it only seven months prior. [5] He then joined PBM and was appointed as its State Chairman of Sabah exactly two months later after leaving BERSATU on 28 August 2022.[6]

Political career[edit]

Mohamaddin supports the curfew that was imposed in eastern Sabah to combat the rampant cross border crimes perpetrated by bandits from the neighbouring southern Philippines.[7]

Controversy and Issue[edit]

Mohamaddin Ketapi was speaking at a campaign for the 2020 Sabah state election which he allegedly insulted Malaysian security forces who fought during the 2013 Lahad Datu standoff by saying that the fight between 235 militants from the Philippines and the Malaysian army was just a 'theatre play'.

Following public backlash, Mohamaddin offered his apology but not before asserting that the speech was taken out of context.[8]

Elections[edit]

2018 general election[edit]

In the 2018 election, Sabah Heritage Party (WARISAN) fielded him to contest the Silam parliamentary seat,[9] facing the incumbent candidate Nasrun Mansur from the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) and subsequently won.[10][11]
