The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

KOTA KINABALU: Pu­tatan MP Awang Hu­saini bin Datuk Sa­hari has pledged to pay more at­ten­tion to ad­dress needs and is­sues in Mukim Tan­jung Aru and Mukim Sem­bu­lan to­wards ful­fill­ing the peo­ple’s as­pi­ra­tions in both ar­eas.

Through his par­lia­men­tary of­fice, he said he would be work­ing closely with the com­mu­nity lead­ers in Tan­jung Aru and Sem­bu­lan so that proper dis­cus­sions could be car­ried out to iden­tify prob­lems and ur­gent mat­ters that need to be ad­dressed first.

He said a spe­cial com­mit­tee would be set up com­pris­ing the par­lia­men­tary of­fice team, com­mu­nity lead­ers of Tan­jung Aru and Sem­bu­lan as well as City Hall of­fi­cers to en­sure any mat­ters aris­ing and the peo­ple’s as­pi­ra­tions could be met.

“The main rea­son I am choos­ing these two ar­eas is be­cause I am liv­ing in Pu­tatan and both are un­der Tan­jung Aru state seat which is un­der my par­lia­men­tary area to­gether with Pe­ta­gas state seat.

“Tan­jung Aru and Sem­bu­lan are very near to Kota Kinabalu and thus both are im­por­tant to the im­age of the State Cap­i­tal,” Awang Hu­saini said in his speech when of­fi­ci­at­ing at a mass cir­cum­ci­sion of 51 young boys or­gan­ised by United Sabah Is­lamic As­so­ci­a­tion (USIA) Kg Tan­jung Aru Lama branch and main com­mit­tee of Al-Khau­tar Mosque at the com­pound of the mosque in Tan­jung Aru Lama yes­ter­day.

He also con­trib­uted RM1,000 to buy a gi­ant fan for the mosque for the con­ve­nience of the Mus­lim com­mu­nity.

On ad­dress­ing clean­li­ness level in both Mukims, he said he had dis­cussed with City Hall to in­tro­duce and im­ple­ment a ‘Re­cy­cle Pro­gramme’ in Tan­jung Aru, Sem­bu­lan and Pu­lau Gaya apart from con­duct­ing reg­u­lar go­tong-roy­ong ac­tiv­i­ties.

On the mass cir­cum­ci­sion event, Awang Hu­saini com­mended the co-or­gan­is­ers – USIA Kg Tan­jung Aru Lama and the mosque main com­mit­tee – to con­duct the pro­gramme to fa­cil­i­tate Mus­lim fam­i­lies in the area to have their chil­dren in par­tic­u­lar young boys to un­dergo the manda­tory cir­cum­ci­sion as it is com­pul­sory in Is­lam.

He said he hoped both or­gan­is­ers would con­tinue con­duct­ing the pro­gramme as an­nual event dur­ing long school hol­i­days so as to fa­cil­i­tate Mus­lim fam­i­lies.
