MP pledges to address needs, issues in Tg Aru, Sembulan
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.
