SIBU: Deputy chairman of Sibu Municipal Council (SMC), Rogayah Jamain, says she is disappointed with the poor response towards the ‘gotong-royong’ (community work party) campaign to clean up Bandong Walk and food court here yesterday.

She lamented there was lack of commitment from property owners and tenants/traders to clean up the area.

The ‘gotong-royong’ was initiated by Bandong Community Development Association Sibu, in collaboration with SMC.

“SMC is fully supportive of this activity as can be seen by its personnel and councillors in charge of the area helping out with the cleaning campaign.

“I am very disappointed because the response is very bad. The committees of both Bandong Walk and food court express the same sentiment. In fact, property owners and tenants showed up during the meeting but not during the actual ‘gotong-royong’. We did not see their faces,” Rogayah said when met after the campaign.

She believed the area would be booming again like in the early days.

“My call to the property owners and tenants is to give their full support to the committees to help make this place as one of tourist spots in Sibu.

“I wish to see greater commitment from them to ensure the success of this place,” Rogayah added.

Chairman of Bandong Community Development Association Sibu Abang Morni Datuk Abang Zainuddin, coordinator Mohamad Safree Mohamad Kassim, councillors Zaiton Abdul Kader and Nazhatul Syima were also present at the event.
