save kinabatangan river sabah malaysia

Yesterday I posted the news about the barges that are taking sand from the Kinabatangan River. Here's the update!

The state government has finally acted upon this issue, thank God for their fast action. It seems that the villagers have been complaining about it to them. Good thing they did it.

It is the Minister of Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment, Datuk Masidi Manjun himself, who did the immediate respond! He has ordered the director of Environment Protection Department to give a full report on why it gave permission to a company to dredge sand from the river. I won't be surprised if there is corruption within the department. Good thing too, thank you Datuk Masidi Manjun!

The sand excavation has been halted temporarily too! Yay!!!

“I have requested the district officer of Kinabatangan to suspend sand excavation work pending completion of the investigation,” he said yesterday.

Now let's just wait for the report and see what it says. =) I'm so relieved!







Shine on,
Del
