KUCHING, Dec 30: Mayor of Kuching South City Council (MBKS) Datuk Wee Hong Seng said that he was surveying for potential areas to be set up as smoking zones for smokers.

Wee said that MBKS would allocate funds in setting up the smoking zones as most of the eateries would refuse to invest in setting up smoking zones.

According to Wee, it was to only fair for smokers to have a place to smoke.

“That’s why I asked my officers to look around the eateries to set up smoking zone for the smokers,” Wee pointed out.

“Smoker or non smoker, we must respect them,” Wee said. —DayakDaily
