Kee Family Gathering

Salam everyone

This was in the NST yesterday…

Kee family gathers for Hari Raya


TAWAU: The first gathering of the Kees, a large family synonymous with Tawau, will be held at the Tawau community hall here on Oct 4.

The Kee family were descendants of Chinese national Kee Kim Swee, who embraced Islam using the name Kee Abdullah, and became the first civil servant in Tawau in 1894.

Many descendants of Kee Abdullah rose to prominence, including Sabah state Secretary Datuk K.Y. Mustafa and Assistant Finance Minister Datuk Tawfiq Datuk Abu Bakar Titingan, who is also the assemblyman for Apas.

Tawau district chief OKK Kee Mohd Ayub Kee Abu Bakar was a great-grandson of Kee Abdullah. His father, Kee Abu Bakar, was Tawau’s first district chief.

Gathering chairman Kee Hamid Kee Sulaiman said the event was aimed at giving the Kee family the opportunity to meet.

He was hopeful that all descendants of the family would return to attend the historic occasion. — Bernama
Here’s a link to the NST online page about this article. It was quite a pleasant surprise reading about my own family in the newspapers. Yup, I’m one of the Kee family too, and yes I’ll be going to the gathering as well. So it should be a very exciting Raya break!
