打里卜斗磨场小贩的不满 // Telipok Tamu ground hawkers not happy



The hawkers at the Telipok Tamu ground are not happy with the condition and the arrangement of the place where they are selling their farm produce. They said they were moved to the new shop area where very few people come to that area to shop. Their businesses are seriously affected and it is very difficult for them to do business here.


打里卜斗磨场售卖土产品的小贩不满当局为他们安排的摊位地点。他们说其摊位被迁移到新店铺的后面,而该地点是很少人会前往光顾。 这导致他们的生意受到严重影响,小贩们投诉说这造成他们的生意额非常低。


人们不喜欢前往后面的新店铺,因为该处很拥堵并且难以找到泊车位。有些顾客也不想走路到那里买东西。小贩还抱怨说他们之前摆卖的地方被外来人抢去摆摊做生意,并且也抢走他们的顾客

沙巴民主行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉在该斗磨场走访时接到有关投诉。外他也接到其他投诉有关该斗磨场的马路街灯无法照明,此外有许多车辆时常穿过该斗磨场,影响也危及他们和顾客。

爱德华宁听小贩们各种的投诉,他认为打里卜每个星期四的斗磨确实需要重新地安排。 因为摊位地点的不合适,而且是在新店的后面,这导致甘榜人无法销售他们的农产品。 人们通常不喜欢去那里,而且商店后面比较闷热。

爱德华说,有关当局应重新安排和整顿该斗磨场的摊位,并把摊位分类,以及规定摊位的面积。例如,安排售卖蔬菜和水果的摊位在一处,而服装摊位在另一地点,安排小五金和电器摊位在一起,肉类摊位应该安置在适当的地点,至于其他的日常用品摊位可以集中在一处。 这让整个斗磨场看起来会更整齐和清洁,顾客更容易找到他们想要买的东西。

爱德华敦促亚庇市政厅必须重新检讨编排,并听取小贩们的意见。 当局应该顾虑和考量小贩们的需要,并且协助他们有更好的生意。 爱德华希望亚庇市政厅尽快去处理该事项

Telipok Tamu ground hawkers not happy

The hawkers at the Telipok Tamu ground are not happy with the condition and the arrangement of the place where they are selling their farm produce. They said they were moved to the new shop area where very few people come to that area to shop. Their businesses are seriously affected and it is very difficult for them to do business here.

The people don’t like to come up to the new shop area because of the congestion and difficulty in finding car parking space. Some don’t want to walk up here to buy their needs. They complain about their old place next to the old shops in Telipok were taken over by the foreigners and including their customers too.

Edward Ewol Mujie the Sabah DAP Vice Chairman took the complaints during his short visit to the Tamu ground today. There were many other complaints which include the street lights not functioning in the Tamu ground and there is constantly cars coming through the Tamu ground which affected their customers and it is dangerous to have cars driving through while others are doing the shopping.

Edwards after listening to the hawkers’ complaints feels that it is true and there is a need of some re-arrangement to the weekly Tamu in Telipok. The present place for the kampong folks to sell their farm produce is not that good especially it is at the back of the town center. The people usually don’t like to go up there, and it is hotter at the back.

Edward said it is better to rearrange the whole Tamu ground for all the stalls into different category and area of selling. For example, the vegetable and fruits in one row, the clothing in one place, the hardware and electrical goods in one corner, the live stocks and meat stall to be located where there is less disturbance, and the other house-whole items can be grouped together. The whole Tamu ground would look more tidy and easier for the shoppers to pick up their purchase and find what they want.

Edward said the DBKK will have to come to do the rearrangement as requested by the hawkers here, so that their requirement can be met, and they can have better business in the long run. Edward will arrange with DBKK to look into the matter soon.
