It's The New Mayor, Stupid!

Hantu Laut















Sunset at Tg.Aru Beach


I am not a friend of the former mayor nor the new mayor.What I am putting here is honest-to-goodness talk about the worsening state of affairs at Tg.Aru Beach, Kota Kinabalu.

I fully agree with the article here on the state of neglect of the beach by DBKK.

It has become worse with the present south westerly wind that brought and deposited debris from the water on to the beach.It has also become worse since the new mayor took over.This beach is only about 3 kilometres long yet the Mayor found it difficult to clean up.

Eyes behold the amount of garbage strewn the full stretch of the beach making it looking more like a rubbish dump rather than a beach.

In the past DBKK used to send workers to clean up the beach quite regularly.Below are photos I took about two years ago of DBKK workers cleaning up the beach.

















They even dug into the sand to remove shallowly buried plastic bags.It is now history.It is now left to nature to take its own course.

There have been cases of mugging and every Sundays hordes of "Mat Rempit" would be on their "Cap chai" terrorising beach goers and endangering children playing on the beach.They came in a big group so no one dare to stop them from doing their dangerous stunts on the beach.














It's about time DBKK wakes up and the police step in and nap these monkeys.

Kalau tak silap aku, saya pernah dengar bahawa DBKK membersihkan pantai kita 2 kali sehari, tidak tahulah sama ada tugas ini masih diteruskan ataupun tidak.

Masalah sistem kumbahan dan juga pembuangan sampah ke dalam laut oleh penghuni kampung air juga salah satu daripada masalah kekotoran pantai kita.

banyak sebab yang menyebabkan persekiran menhadi kotor. sikap segelintir orang yang membuang sampah juga perlu disalahkan. harap pekara ini diberikan perhatian dan walau apapun, menjaga kebersihan adlah tanggungjawab bersama.

kita harus bersama menjaga kebersihan pantai kita.

diharap pihak DBKK dapat menjalankan tugas membersihkan kawasan pantai tersebut dengan lebih kerap.

The Mayor is not a superhero who can solve all problems in short time, plus he is still new. Even if the DBKK do the beach cleaning but the public continuously throwing rubbish into the sea, how will this problem to be solved?

Kerjasama di antara orang awam dan DBKK sangat penting untuk memastikan kebersihan pantai Tg. Aru ini sentiasa terjaga. Menyalahkan stu pihak saja adalah tidak adil.

Jika mahu keadaan pantai ini bersih dan terjaga. Kerajaan perlulah menubuhkan satu badan untuk menjaga keindahan persisir pantai. Ini bagi memastikan pemantauan kebersihan pantai ini sentiasa ada yang menjaga.

sampah sarap itu datang bukan secara semula jadi.. daripada menyalahkan pihak yang bertanggungjawab untuk membersih, kenapa tidak salahkan pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab membuang sampah sarap itu ke pantai??

Well, blaming the Mayor won't solve the problem. This is human done!
