KUCHING, Dec 9: Youth leaders from Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) and Parti Persaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) visited Tchee Fah Hin, father of Kiam Jong — one of the three who died in the CityOne Megamall explosion on Dec 4 — in his run-down house today to offer support and assistance.
The group comprised SUPP Youth secretary-general Milton Foo and deputy Youth chief Andrew Victor, SUPP Batu Kitang branch Youth secretary Leonard Tan, PBB deputy Youth chief-cum-Tupong assemblyman Fazzruddin Abdul Rahman and its Youth vice-chief Leonard Jambu.
Foo, in a press statement, revealed that Tchee wished to have a house of his own.
The 66-year-old, with mobility issues, is currently living with his second son in a shabby wooden house at the Stampin Resettlement Area, Kampung Stutong Baharu, here.
Tchee explained that the land where the house stands was not his, and claimed that the landowner did not agree on rebuilding the house.
“He hoped that the Sarawak government could perhaps provide a small piece of land within the resettlement area so they can build a house of their own,” Foo added.
After hearing Tchee’s plight, the youths leaders said they would convey his needs to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg. — DayakDaily
