General : Review Safety Features At PPR Homes – Rohani

PETALING JAYA, Jan 29 (Bernama) — Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim hoped the relevant ministry would review the safety features at People’s Housing Project (PPR) homes.

Referring to the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry, she also hoped it would monitor PPR blocks to ensure that maintenance is carried out on a regular basis.

She said this was important following incidents of fatalities particularly involving children.

The minister earlier visited the family of Muhammad Zul Hazriq Danish Aiden, 5, who fell to his death through the gap of a run-down wrought-iron railing while playing with his brother at the corridor on the sixth floor of a PPR block at Kota Damansara here today.

She noted that the unfortunate incident was not the first to have happened in the same area; residents told her that a four-year-old fell to his death last year from the 14th floor of another block.

Rohani said the victims’ parents should not be faulted for the accidents.

“The public should not point fingers at the parents. Such accident can happen to any family, not due to negligence but the lack of safety at the buildings,” she said.

She said her ministry would provide counseling to Muhammad Zul’s mother, Nor Sahura Sahara, 35, and his siblings, Nur Diana Aiden, 15, Muhammad Zul Hisham Aiden, 12, Nur Aldira Aiden, 10, and Muhammad Zul Haiqal Daniel, 7, who had been traumatised by his tragic passing.

Meanwhile, Welfare Department director general Datuk Norani Mohd Hashim also visited and presented RM400 to the family, which would receive the aid monthly.
