The Wargamas Brunei Association (WEB) needs a new initiative as the way forward and provide a goal for members of a senior citizens association.

“We need people to self-reflect and become a treasure when it comes to uniting for changes,” WEB 2021 President Haji Abu Bakar bin Haji Mohd Don said during the WEB Appreciation and Remembrance ceremony organised by the WEB on Monday.

The goal of WEB in 2021 will be to prioritise Man Jadda wa Jadda in hopes of implementing measures to bring together the vision and the mission, the president added.

The newly appointed WEB President is also committed to ensure that the Supreme Administrative Committee (JKTT) leadership cannot arbitrarily use power for their own benefit – or that of friends – which may cause instability in the organisational structure.

The ceremony was held to commemorate the services and roles by the WEB 2019-2020 President Pengiran Haji Salleh bin Pengiran Haji Kamaluddin and former WEB vice president Haji Abdul Hakim bin Haji Mohd Yassin. The two former WEB leaders have been appointed WEB special advisors and delegates.

Pengiran Haji Salleh was appointed Special Advisor and Special Representative of the Government and WEB Legal Liaison while Haji Abdul Hakim was appointed Advisor and Special Representative of the WEB Khatam Al-Quran ceremony.

The event saw performances from the WEB Arts and Culture Bureau and Tausyeh performance from the WEB Citizens Bureau.
