‘Sell my bike, I don’t use it anymore’
RAWANG: “Mak, nanti basikal Aiman boleh jual dah. Aiman dah tak pakai dah.” (Mum, you can sell my bicycle. I don’t use it anymore.)
These were the last words of Muhammad Aiman Kamarul, 12, to his mother before he left home on Friday afternoon.
His uncle, Mohd Fadhil Mussana, 33, said he was close to tears when his sister told him about the incident.
“His words have a different meaning for us now,” said Fadhil, who drove here from Temerloh early yesterday morning after receiving news about his nephew.
He said Aiman loved his bicycle and would not go anywhere without it.
“But Friday was unusual because he left without his bicycle.
“His mum thought maybe it was because none of the other boys brought theirs.”
Fadhil described Aiman as a very obedient boy who would volunteer to do house chores.
“I remember the last time I saw him. It was at a relative’s wedding at our kampung on Feb 26. He was fascinated by the vacuum cleaner that he asked to vacuum the carpet. He did a great job.”
Fadhil spoke to the New Sunday Times on behalf of Aiman’s mother, who was too distraught.
He said his sister could not bring herself to visit the search and rescue centre, which was near where the tragedy took place.
“She also has six other children to take care of.”
Aiman and Mohd Ikhwan Mohd Ridzuan are missing after Friday’s fishing tragedy in Kampung Timah SKC here.
