Kuala Lumpur City Hall under siege


Three demonstrations against the local authority in a day.

Demo Three
By JAYAGANDI JAYARAJ

ABOUT 30 residents from Kampung Abdullah Hukum in Kuala Lumpur marched to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) complex yesterday morning to submit a memorandum demanding that the loacl auhtority fulfil its promise of providing them units at an apartment project.

The residents, accompanied by Ampang MP Zuraida Kamarudin and Wanga Maju MP Wee Choo Keong, had gathered at Dataran Merderka at about 10am to air their grievances.


Hear us out: Residents of Kg Abdullah Hukum holding up banners Friday.

They represent about 130 households who are in a dilemma over uncertainty of the status of their promised homes at the Apartment Abdullah Hukum.

These residents, who are now renting houses while waiting for their housing units, were supposed to have shifted to the new apartments a year ago.

Last year, the long-time residents of Kampung Abdullah Hukum were asked to move out to make way for the Eco City project by Pelita Dunia Sdn Bhd.

The project includes luxury homes, a commercial centre and a 70-storey tower.


According to Roslan Mat, DBKL has earlier promised that all residents affected by the project will be given a unit each at the Apartment Abdullah Hukum.

The cost of the promised unit was RM51,000. The residents were also promised a compensation of RM6,000 each.

Roslan said all affected residents were moved to the new home stage by stage.

“There are five stages of shifting. All have been moved but shifting for the stage three residents are still pending. The DBKL also have not shown the list of people who are going to be shifted.

“We want to know why is it still pending?” Roslan said.

Roslan, who has been staying in the kampung for 47 years, said the cost of RM51,000 for an apartment unit measuring less than 198 sq meters was too expensive.

“They should give us the homes for free because according to a source from the DBKL town planning department, we were told that the land cost was between RM350 and RM500 per sq feet,” he said.

Roslan also said under the DBKL open housing system (Sistem Perumahan Terbuka), the apartments units were also given to those not from Kampung Abdullah Hukum.

“There are those from outside the kampung and also certain people who got more than one unit. How is that possible?” Roslan said.

Mayor Datuk Abdul Hakim Borhan's personal assistant Shaari Ahmad Junid accepted the memorandum from the residents.

That 70 storey tower, is residential or commercial? If residential, it is a bit hard to break 300 m height, but if commercial (office building), it may able to break 300 m easily....but even on both types, it should be over 250 m, considering quite a number of 70 storey building or so in the world normally over 250 m....or will they add spire to break 300 m easily?

Saravanan to meet affected Kampung Abdullah Hukum residents
By JAYAGANDI JAYARAJ


DEPUTY Federal Territories Minister Datuk M. Saravanan will meet residents of Kampung Abdullah Hukum who are unhappy over the delay in getting the keys to their new homes at Apartment Abdullah Hukum.

He said he would meet the affected residents on May 31 to come up with a solution.

Saravanan said the people should not resort to holding demonstrations but have discussions with the relevant authorities to resolve their problems.


Saravanan: 'I am not saying that there are no shortcomings in the DBKL … but we are working hard to overcome them.'

“If they are not happy with the manner in which DBKL is handling the issues, they can approach the FT Ministry to discuss the problems in a cordial atmosphere, and not by holding banners and shouting,” said Saravarnan.

He said holding demonstrations with political interference was not going to help the situation.

“We should nip the culture of protest in the bud because it will create an impression that DBKL only works when there is a protest.

“It should not be that way. I am not saying that there are no shortcomings in the DBKL as there certainly are, but we are working hard to overcome them,” he said.

Referring to the protest led by Wangsa Maju MP Wee Choo Keong on Friday, Saravanan said if the people in his constituency were unhappy with something, Wee should have come forward as the MP representing the Wangsa Maju people to address the matter.

“Instead, we had Pakatan Rakyat MPs from all over at DBKL building. This is not politics. The demonstration is used by the Opposition to gain political mileage,” he added.

Saravanan said he was not aware there was a second group of protesters who had gathered at the Kuala Lumpur City Hall on Friday morning in addition to the boisterous group of hawkers from Wangsa Maju who were unhappy with DBKL's demolition of their stalls.

“Due to the aggressive protest by the Wangsa Maju traders and several Opposition MPs, we were not aware that there was also another group of protesters from Kampung Abdullah Hukum. I only knew about the issue when I saw the news on television on Friday night.

“I then made a call to a resident in Kampung Abdullah Hukum to obtain more information,” he said in a phone interview with StarMetro.

About 30 residents had gathered at the DBKL building on Friday to submit a memorandum demanding that the local authority fulfil its promise of providing them units at an apartment project.

Although most households were given units at the Apartment Abdullah Hukum, the relocation of another 130 households had been delayed.

Meanwhile, DBKL director-general Datuk Salleh Yusup said the City Hall considered the Taman Desa Setapak trader issue closed.

“It is no longer an issue because we gave the traders three days to answer but they failed to respond. The land belongs to the government and now they have to go,” he said.

On May 21, the DBKL had demolished 130 stalls in eight locations in Taman Desa Setapak.

Commenting on another demonstration staged by the Kampung Baru Weekend Market Traders and Welfare Association, Salleh said DBKL owned the land where the market was located.

The association had claimed the land was under the Selangor Development Corporation (PKNS) and did not belong to the DBKL.

“Transfer of the land ownership is already in the process. We obtained the land in 1986 and we have a right to redevelop the area.

“It will be a mixed development that will benefit everyone.

“We will give priority to the qualified local traders to do business once the development is completed.”

Why not combine all three and make it a new KL downtown - an alternative to KLCC.

Kampung on the march for flats
Malina Jeya Palan

KUALA LUMPUR: Angry residents of Kampung Abdullah Hukum gathered at Dataran Merdeka recently to protest against their alleged unfair treatment by City Hall.

Together with Abdullah Hukum Parti Keadilan chief Roslan Mat, residents marched from Dataran Merdeka to City Hall to present a memorandum demanding justice for residents.

The residents said they were initially promised flats at Abdullah Hukum flats as part of a relocation scheme due to government projects in their area.

But, Roslan said, that promise had not been kept.


"Umno members promised the Abdullah Hukum community that all involved would be given homes. But that has not happened," he said, adding that each promised flats was valued at RM51,000, with additional compensation of RM6,000.

Roslan added that the relocation has been haphazard.

"From what I understand, residents have been moved in batches and not at one go, which is what should have been done in the first place."

In addition, Roslan said that several non-residents have managed to secure flats meant for Abdullah Hukum residents only.

"This is not fair, as some residents are still waiting for their homes," he said.

Even more perplexing was that in some cases, family members had been allotted units individually, said Roslan.

At City Hall, Roslan handed the memorandum to special officer for the mayor, Shaari Ahmad Junus.

SP Setia hurt by high material costs
By FINTAN NG


PETALING JAYA: SP Setia Bhd's net profit for its second quarter ended Apr 30 dropped 19.68% to RM47.99mil from the previous corresponding period mainly due to the escalating costs of building materials.

Revenue was 5.12% higher at RM301.51mil.

In a note attached to its quarterly result, the company said despite the challenging economic and business environment, expansion plans were on track.

Sales for the financial year 2008 (ending Oct 31) so far had remained strong and had hit RM951mil as at May 31, it said.

The company said rising costs remained the key concern and would be dealt with via a review of how contracts were awarded by incorporating cost-escalation clauses.

It added that operations would be restructured to make it more cost efficient while key infrastructure and amenities in the townships that the company was developing would be expedited and improved to “enable justifiable price increases to be passed on to purchasers”.

Aseambankers Malaysia Bhd said in an equity research report dated June 23 that SP Setia faced the twin risks of dwindling buyers' confidence and margin compression, which might cripple earnings growth.

“We conservatively cut our FY09 earnings forecasts by 12% to 19% in anticipation of slowdown in launches and margins pressure,” it said.

It added that with no immediate catalyst amid domestic and external uncertainties, the company's stock price was expected to languish over the next three to six months.

Recently, Real Estate and Housing Developers Association vice president Datuk F.D. Iskandar F.D. Mansor said the residential segment of the property industry faced “challenging times” due to higher oil price-fuelling inflation.

He said contractors were also not keen to take on new projects as they were adopting a wait-and-see attitude.

However, Sime Darby Property senior executive vice-president Datuk Abdul Wahab Maskan was quoted as saying in a report yesterday that despite the escalating costs of construction, the property arm of Sime Darby Bhd would not be deferring launches of new projects.


i hope it wont effect dis project
