MPAJ REFUTES FAILING TO RESPOND TO COMPLAINTS

KUALA LUMPUR - The Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) today refuted claims that it had failed to respond positively to complaints by residents in Bukit Antarabangsa on numerous issues ranging from soil erosion to tree pruning in the area.
Its public relations officer, Norhayati Ahmad, said immediate actions had been executed either by the MPAJ or the developers to address the problems.
“For instance, after receiving complaints about suspected erosion at the main road to Bukit Antarabangsa in September, we immediately sent our experts to the ground and put up the gabion wall to prevent further erosion,” she told Bernama here today.
Following Saturday’s massive landslide in the area which claimed four lives, residents in Bukit Antarabangsa had alleged that the authorities, including the MPAJ, had failed to take necessary actions to prevent the disaster.
Among others, they claimed that the local council had failed to respond to their complaints of soil activities in the area a few days prior to the tragedy.
On another note, Norhayati said the MPAJ was now preparing to begin the cleaning up and restoring amenities once the search and rescue operation was called off.
“We expect to begin work sometime next week,” she said, adding that at present the local council was among others assisting the authorities in evacuating residents in the affected areas.
Meanwhile, an Oak leaf Park Condominium resident caused a scene at the MPAJ operations centre in Taman Bukit Mewah today when he railed at the MPAJ staff and other workers for not helping him and his family to evacuate.
Tumiran Mohd Kasdi, 56, who had been living at the condominium for 15 years claimed that he, his wife and two children had to walk for 30 minutes in the rain up the slippery road to collect their belongings at about 3pm yesterday and the drivers in two MPAJ four-wheel-drive vehicles did not offer them help.
He said his daughter was still in confinement and had to carry her baby and other belongings on the wet and slippery road.
The businessman also claimed that there were no vehicles provided to help them evacuate despite announcements to the contrary.
