SABAH DAP was informed of a mystery building which sits on a piece of land believed to be under the Welfare Department. The complex with several buildings has been completed quite sometimes ago, but these seem not being utilized at all and just left abandoned.
Edward Ewol Mujie and his assistant Stephen Yaman went for the inspection and found this complex at mile 7 Jalan Tuaran is empty without anybody there. The grass has overgrown and the gate was locked.
This complex is built on the land behind the old welfare department training centre for the disable (OKU), and in front of the rehabilitations centre (Sekolah Tunas Bakti Kota Kinabalu) under the welfare department.
The people said why spent so much money to build a huge complex and just leave it empty unutilized. They wanted the authority concern to explain how can this happened, and how much of the tax payers money had been used to build this complex. We don’t want our money being used like this, because every ringgit spent must be accounted for.
On the other hand the old centre is just a piece of waste land with some broken building left standing, and this is looking so ugly and unsightly. The people can see it clearly from the main road side. The department should arrange to demolish and clear of all the debris or to beautify the ground to make it presentable. There is no logic to leave the old buildings standing like this.- Sabahkini
