KOTA KINABALU, Sept 13 -- Preparation for the Malaysia Day 2021 celebration at the Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC) here this Thursday is going smoothly with rehearsals to be held every day from today.
Sabah State Secretary Datuk Safar Untong said only 339 guests, comprising dignitaries, committee members and media personnel, have been invited to attend the celebration, scheduled to start at 8pm.
“We are aware that the hall at the SICC can accommodate 500 people, but we limit the number of guests to only 339 people as we are still in the situation of facing the COVID-19 threat,” he said.
