Anwar speaking at Rumah Lipu, Selangau.

Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim spent hours yesterday visiting two Iban longhouses at Sg. Bawang, Selangau and another near Sg. Arip in conjunction with the Gawai celebration.

He had healthy lunch of chicken and fish cook in bamboo locally known as ‘manok pansoh’, and ‘ikan pansoh’.

Anwar spend about three hours at Rumah Lipu and was received well by the longhouse folks – who were eager to see the former Deputy Prime Minister in flesh.

After Rumah Lipu, Anwar and his convoy went to a longhouse at Sungai Arip and later in the night he held a ‘ceramah’ restaurant in town.
