Problems facing the Sultanate of Sulu are mounting because of the smear campaign tactics by Omar Maniquis against the other members of the Kiram family in order to promote Datu Fuad A. Kiram as the reigning sultan of Sulu despite evidences that point to the fact that Datu Fuad is far from being the successor to the sultanate of Sulu throne.
Based on our interviews with many legitimate members of the Royal Kiram family, we have come to the conclusion that the motive of Omar Maniquis, who has been using the name of "Omar Kiram", for promoting discord in the Sultanate of Sulu is purely monetary.
Because we believe that the Philippine national claim to Sabah is contingent upon the unity of the sultanate of Sulu, we continue to gather facts for all may know. To defend the Philippine Sabah claim effectively, it is essential to unmask the charlatans from among those claiming to be members of the Royal Kiram family.
Rajamuda Muedzul T. Kiram's website carries the following post denouncing his uncle Datu Fuad Kiram for trying to usurp the Sulu sultanate throne:

Fuad Kiram has been excommunicated by Sulu Ruma Bechara following his self-declaration as Sultan of Sulu.
