KUCHING, Dec 24: Newly elected N12 Kota Sentosa assemblyman Wilfred Yap and Kuching South City Council (MBKS) have been urged to address the poor drainage system in Stampin Resettlement Scheme.

Special assistant to Chong Chieng Jen, Michael Kong Feng Nian, said he had been writing numerous letters to MBKS complaining about the matter since last year.

“I have even invited MBKS mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng to visit the area together so that we can both have a proper discussion and engagement for the betterment of the residents here (Stampin Resettlement Scheme) but all my letters and invitation fell on deaf ears,” he said in a statement today.

Kong also said he had went down to Lorong 10A of Jalan Stampin Baru earlier today to look at the current drainage situation in light of the monsoon season.

He further said that the drainage issues in the area have yet to be rectified and urged MBKS to look into the matter.

He claimed that MBKS have given a response of “lack of funds” which led to the failure to address the decade-long drainage issues.

“Now with Wilfred Yap as the elected assemblyman for N12 Kota Sentosa together with his RM8 million yearly allocation, Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) has run out of excuses to do the necessary.

“More need to be done by GPS and it must be done fast,” he emphasised. — DayakDaily
