History

The history of the town of Jesselton can be traced since the administration of British North Borneo Company (BNBC) in 1881.[1] Throughout the administration under the Federation of Malaysia since 1963, the town subsequently renamed into Kota Kinabalu and a council was later established after it granted city status on 2 February 2000.[2] Kota Kinabalu was formerly administrated by Majlis Perbandaran Kota Kinabalu (MPKK) or the Kota Kinabalu Municipal Council. Their jurisdiction covers an area of 351 square kilometres encompassing the sub-districts and towns of, among others, Tanjung Aru, Kepayan, Kota Kinabalu city, Luyang, Inanam, Menggatal, Telipok, and Sepanggar.
