No CF After 20 Years, Residents Seek State Government’s Help


GOMBAK July 31: Residents of Flat Pinggiran Batu Caves now hope for help from the State Government to solve the Certificate of Fitness (CF) problem faced by them.

According to the Deputy Chairman of the flat’s Residents Association, Hamid Jusoh, 53, the CF problem faced has been delayed for almost 20 years and there have been no parties that seriously helped to solve it.

“We hope that the State Government can help resolve it because we have been waiting too long for it (CF),” he said.

He was met after the Our Apartments are Clean and Bright Iftar with the Exco in charge of Housing, Building Management and Urban Settlement, Iskandar Samad at the flat compound yesterday.

Hamid said that the nine blocks of flats also face maintenance problems like the building being dilapidated and trash problems.

“I also hope that the State Government can help our flats through the Ceria scheme,” he added.

A resident of the flat, Rohizam Modh, 41, said that he is forced to occupy the flat because he could not afford to find a more comfortable home with his modest income.

“If I could, I would certainly be out looking for a new home. Most of those living in these flats are of the low and middle income. How long must we wait (for the CF)?” he asked.

For Marina Mohd, 55, she has occupied the flat in fear and with no guarantee because there is no CF to guarantee the safety of the building.

“I stay here with my children. We do not know if anything might happen to the building. I ask for those who can help to solve it.” she said.
