PAPAR: The Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama) Chief Executive Officer, Nur-ul Afida Kamaludin today visited the family of the late Bernama journalist Nur Adika Bujang in Kampung Somboi, Kinarut, near here today.

Also present were Bernama Editor-in-Chief Arul Rajoo Durar Raj, Human Resources manager Marzukhi Md Saleh, Sabah Bureau head Fadzli Ramli and former Sabah Bureau chief
