Owners told to form pre-management
01/07/2004 The Star
KUALA LUMPUR, Wed. - When residents at Taman Wahyu flats tried to
douse a fire on Monday, they could not find a hose or a nozzle. They
could only watch in despair as a family of three perished as their
low-cost flat was engulfed in flames. Today, they found out why the
hose and nozzle was missing: It had been removed and stored by the
City Hall to prevent vandalism.

Department: Taman Wahyu flats issued CF
KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department yesterday ascertained
that the Taman Wahyu 1 flat in Jinjang Utara, in which three people burnt to
death on Monday, had been given a certificate of fitness for occupation (CF).
Its director Mahadi Mat Ali said the flat, under the Government public housing
scheme, was given the CF last year before the residents moved in and the units
were already supplied with electricity.
hose kept away to stop theft!
KUALA LUMPUR: The mystery of the missing fire hose at the City Hall Block C
flats in Taman Wahyu has been solved. The hose was kept in the cleaners'
quarters and this came to light yesterday when Housing and Local Government
Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting said that the hose was put away by City Hall to
prevent theft or damage by vandals.
Install hose reels at low cost flats
PUTRAJAYA: The Government will direct that all public low-cost housing flats be
installed with hose reels to prevent a recurrence of last Sunday's fire at Taman
Wahyu I in Jinjang, killing a couple and their son. Federal Territories Minister
Tan Sri Mohamed Isa Abdul Samad said previously the flats only had a water pipe
system from a tank known as "down comer."
fire-fighting equipment are in working order: Ong
KUALA LUMPUR: All local authorities have been instructed to ensure that
fire-fighting equipment at highrise buildings are in good working order and be
made easily accessible to the public, with immediate effect. The directive came
from the Housing and Local Government Ministry yesterday, after reports that the
hose and nozzle of the wet riser at Block C of the City Hall low-cost flats in
Taman Wahyu, Jinjang, where R. Ramachandran and his family were killed in a
fire, were `locked away for safekeeping' to deter vandals.
to investigate fire that killed family
KUALA LUMPUR, Thurs. - Kuala Lumpur City Hall is conducting its own
investigation into the fire that killed a family of three at Taman Wahyu 1
People's Housing Project. Kuala Lumpur Datuk Bandar Datuk Mohammad Shaid Mohd
Taufek said his investigation team was gathering the information to be submitted
to the Housing and Local Government Ministry tomorrow.
More education on fire-fighting needed: Fomca
KUALA LUMPUR: We see them along corridors and escape routes. We know what they
are for but how many of us know how to use them? We are talking about fire
extinguishers. Professor Datuk Hamdan Adnan of the Federation of Malaysian
Consumers Association (Fomca) said the authorities should address this problem
in their bid to prevent a recurrence of the Taman Wahyu low-cost flats fire that
claimed the lives of a family of three last Monday.
re-design of flats
KUALA LUMPUR: Since the fire on Monday, more have spoken out on the issue.
Federal Territory MIC squatter committee chairman V. M Panjamorthy said it was
about time the Government start re-designing low-cost flats as well as apartment

DOWN Comers are normally installed at highrise residential buildings. The water
tank is normally on the roof and gravity is used for water flow.

still waiting for promised funeral hall
KUALA LUMPUR: The Bandar Tun Razak Sri Kota flats residents have yet to
see the funeral hall promised them by the authorities. The residents need space
to hold wake for their dead at the flats and this was made more poignant when
three of its residents were killed in a van crash in Ayer Keroh on June 29.
brings up Taman Fadason incidents to City Hall 03/07/2004 The Star
Kepong MP Dr Tan Seng Giaw met City Hall officials on June 29 to
discuss the collapse of a wall in one of the units of Taman
Fadason flats in Jinjang Utara, and the appearance of cracks in
several other units.
IN a macabre twist of fate, a family perished in a fire that could
have been fought with equipment put away for safe-keeping from
vandals. Now the authorities are investigating what caused the fire
at Taman Wahyu 1 People's Housing Project, and why the fire-fighting
equipment was not where it was supposed to be. Call it bad judgment
on someone's part but, without meaning to vindicate whoever it was,
he was not wholly to blame. For if Malaysians did not have such a
horrendous history of vandalism and poor maintenance of public
property, the authorities, in this case Kuala Lumpur City Hall,
would not have had to resort to that. Malaysians do not know how to
appreciate what we have been given. We break and destroy public
property simply because it is not ours. Just look around. We have
rubbish bins but we don't use them properly, if at all. Instead we
break or steal them. We have public phones but we render them
useless. We have nice scenic parks but we spoil them with our own
stamp of abuse. We just cannot be trusted with public property. It's
as if we are driven to destruction.
City Hall to
fix rubber fire hoses in public flats
KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur City Hall has been directed to
immediately install rubber fire hoses in each of the 60 blocks of
flats built under the Public Housing Project scheme. Federal

taken to prevent the reccurence of the recent fire at Taman Wahyu 1
in Jinjang Utara, Kepong, which claimed three lives.

Path to regulation
THE serviced apartment is a unique animal in the property development
landscape. Being constructed on land zoned for commercial use has put them
beyond the ambit of the Housing Development (Control and Licensing) Act 1966
(the HDA), but their sale to the public at large as housing accommodation begs
the question as to whether they should be regulated. In selling such properties,
developers have blurred the distinction that once existed between serviced
apartments managed by operators as an alternative to hotel accommodation and
apartments/condominiums that are obviously residential in nature.
Support for serviced apartments laws
DEVELOPERS are supportive of the move by the
Federal Government to regulate the sale of serviced apartments. This, they said,
would eliminate unscrupulous companies from undertaking such projects that would
tarnish the image of the industry. S
