KUCHING, Aug 11: Kampung Sri Maimunah has become a forgotten place in the city of Kuching as it remains the only Malay village in Pending without basic water and electrical supply after so many years.

Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Youth secretary-general Milton Foo thus pledged to fight to get water and electricity supply installed in the Malay village where 40 families are residing.

“I have raised the issue and even brought it up to our late Chief Minister Pehin Sri Adenan Satem in 2015. But unfortunately, I had lost in the state election the following year (2016). YB Pending (Yong) who has served as the assemblywoman for three terms has disappointed the residents without resorting to their appeal and needs at all,” he said in a statement today.

Foo had today led his team to visit the village to distribute face masks to the families as well as sanitising the surau and childcare centre which was undertaken by BB Construction as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR).

He pointed out that the residents have appealed to him as well as Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government to connect each house in the village with water and electricity supply.

“Currently, they are sharing the only one water meter connected to the surau and pre-school to their houses,” he said.

Foo thus reiterated that he will not stop in fighting for the residents and getting this problem resolved so that each and every household in Kampung Sri Maimunah is connected with water and electricity supply.

Meanwhile, he expressed appreciation to A&E Trading Sdn Bhd and YKC Group for sponsoring the face masks.—DayakDaily
