An online petition to reinstate Dr. Christina Rundi as Sabah’s Health Director has gone viral since yesterday.

At the time of reporting, the petition which was started by a “Dr. Alex Zander” has garnered more than 1,200 signatures.

A signatory by the name of Hafizah Ibrahim commented that Dr. Christina has displayed great leadership qualities and vast experience in managing the pandemic.

Another signatory who goes by the name of Crispin Kitingan questioned the government’s decision to transfer Dr. Christina out of Sabah.

“There’s no proper justifications on her being transferred. It’s all due to politics. Dr. Christina has performed well. Why victimize her?”

For the record, Dr. Christina’s tenure as Sabah Health Director ended on 13 July 2021.

It is understood that Dr. Christina appealed the decision.

She pleaded to be allowed to continue serving in Sabah so as to not jeopardize Sabah’s efforts to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

She also has an aging mother that needs care.

But her appeals fell on deaf ears.

A senior government official recently confirmed that Dr. Christina would not accept the transfer, and would opt for early retirement.

Replacing Dr. Christina as Sabah Health Director was Dr. Rose Nani Mudin, who served her entire career in Peninsular Malaysia.

Dr. Rose who returned from Kuala Lumpur on 12 July, also received public criticisms for failing to undergo a 14-day quarantine.

She was seen paying a courtesy visit to Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor’s office on 14 July, and visiting the Mini Putrajaya Vaccination Centre on 15 July.
