‘Sultan Of Sulu’ Attends Wedding In Malaysia

Michael Kaung

Amidst controversy over the missing self-proclaimed ‘Sulu Sultan’, comes a marriage between a member of the Negri Sembilan royalty and the family of the ‘recognised’ Sultan of Sulu.

KOTAKINABALU: A recent wedding that saw two royal houses – one Malaysian and the other from the southernPhilippines– tie the knots may serve to clarify who is the “recognised” Sultan of Sulu.

The wedding ceremony in Kuala Lumpur between the nephew of Mohammad Jamalulul Kiram III, who claims the title “Sultan of Sulu”, and a royalty of Negri Sembilan brings a new dimension to royal ties between Peninsular Malaysia, thePhilippinesand, to some extent,Sabah.

The current self-proclaimed “Sulu Sultan”,Sabahbusinessman Mohamad Akjan Ali, has gone “missing” following his so-called coronation as the sultan at Kampung Likas, Kota Kinabalu, on Feb 2.

Akjan and other Umno operatives were arrested and detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) in the mid-1990s.

The arrests were triggered after he was allegedly caught with a briefcase containing about 2,000 ICs at the Kota Kinabalu International Airporton a return flight from Kuala Lumpur.

Mohammad Jamalulul and his wife Dr Fatima Celia were the special guests of Tunku Iskandar Abdullah and his wife Maneesah Ahmad at the marriage of their daughter Tunku Izrina Mazuin to Ifrahim Baydr Ismael Omar.

The Yang di-Pertuan Besar Negri Sembilan Tuanku Muhriz Munawir and his consort Tuanku Aishah Rohani Mahmud were the royal guests of honour.

Other dignitaries included former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohammad and the Malaysian ambassador to the Philippines, according to a statement by Naufal Jumadil, a special envoy to Jamalulul Kiram.

Some 60 family members of the groom’s entourage from the Southern Philippines, including the Rumah Bicara of the Sultanate, the special envoy to the Sultan Sulu, Naufal Jumadil, as well as members of the royal families from all over Malaysiawere also among the guests that graced the occasion.
