KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 30 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob described Tun Sakaran Dandai, who died today, as a highly-respected leader.

In expressing his condolences to Sakaran’s family and the people of Sabah, he said, Sakaran, who was the eighth Yang Dipertua Negeri of Sabah contributed a lot to the country’s development, especially in uplifting the socio-economy of the people of Sabah.
