Sabah NGO Appeals For Federal Assistance To Solve Sepanggar Water Issue


KOTA KINABALU, SABAH – The Federal government is urged to help douse the University Apartment, Sepanggar water woes leaving 5000 residents and business owners hung out to dry since early this year.

Pertubuhan Kebajikan Ekonomi Semangat Bersatu Malaysia (PEMBELA) president Datuk Seri Mohd Jeffry Rosman fears the daily gripes will turn into civil unrest if left unattended.

“I have personally voiced the matter to the Sabah Water Department (SWD) but no remedial action has been taken until today…

“Their reasons lean toward the fault of contractors hired during the previous government ruling: never ending upgrades to the Telibong water plant and burst pipes along the Pan Borneo Highway.”

Datuk Seri Mohd Jeffry Rosman…

The current government continues to ration water off for folks via tank trucks daily but Jeffry said it remains a huge hassle for those whose job schedules do not align.

“The month of Ramadan will be extra challenging for these people and it is best that a solution is found as soon as possible through cooperation with the State and Federal government.”

He noted it was unjust that front liners who have to put in extra hours serving this country return to a home without access to that basic amenity.

“PEMBELA will continue to be vocal on this issue until that solution is found,” he told reporters at his office in Hilltop here.
