Broken ugly light boxes fixed at lamp posts // 灯柱上坏掉的丑陋灯箱



沙巴民主行动党副主席爱德华慕吉说,他被告知有关亚庇市区沿着主要道路旁灯柱上的灯箱,如今已坏掉,不单丑陋而且毫无作用,实在是有损市容。 他不明白当局为何不把已破烂的灯箱取下来,或把它更换。

爱德华说,去年亚庇市政厅耗费约五十万令吉,把亚庇市区四周的街灯更换或安装新装饰,然而该些灯箱却没有被替换或取下来,实在是令人费解。 他们只是任凭该破烂的灯箱挂在那里,生锈和自动脱落。


Sabah DAP Vice Chairman Edward Ewol Mujie said that he was told by the people that all the light boxes fixed on the lamp posts along the major roads in the Kota Kinabalu City area are broken, ugly and no longer functioning, and these are truly unsightly. It is not understood why the authority does not bother to take them down or replace them.

Edward said that last year the City Hall has spent about half a million ringgit to replace or install new decorative street light in the city area and it is very perplexing that these light boxes have not been replaced or taken down. They just left it hanging up there and waiting for it to get rusty and fall off automatically.


Edward said, originally these light boxes were hung and fixed to beautify the City and its surrounding area, but now they are all damaged and fallen into pieces. The original purpose was totally spoiled and the effect reversed. So he urges the City Hall to either to replace these with some new ones to improve for tourism attraction or to take them all down immediately.

This has reflected the bad and ineffective administrative performance of the DBKK and the authorities. It is an easy job but it seems that no one is taking note about it. The slackness has caused shame to the community too. We cannot allow this to happen too often. The valued tourists will have a bad image over the State capital.

There are also many broken fallen banners and streamers hanging in the city which are creating an unsightly scene. DBKK is advised to take action to clear all up.

灯柱上坏掉的丑陋灯箱

沙巴民主行动党副主席爱德华慕吉说,他被告知有关亚庇市区沿着主要道路旁灯柱上的灯箱,如今已坏掉,不单丑陋而且毫无作用,实在是有损市容。 他不明白当局为何不把已破烂的灯箱取下来,或把它更换。

爱德华说,去年亚庇市政厅耗费约五十万令吉,把亚庇市区四周的街灯更换或安装新装饰,然而该些灯箱却没有被替换或取下来,实在是令人费解。 他们只是任凭该破烂的灯箱挂在那里,生锈和自动脱落。

爱德华说,起初这些灯箱悬挂在灯柱上是要美化城市,但现在都已损坏,并且脱落。 政府最初的目已完全没有作用,如今颠倒效果,反而有碍景点。 因此他敦促市政厅更换些新的灯箱,以改善和美化旅游景点,不然就把灯箱撤除, 以免有损市容。

这清楚反映出亚庇市政厅和有关当局无效行政能力。如此简单的工作,但似乎没有人注意到。 当局松弛懒散的工作态度将导致社会蒙羞,尤其是旅游业。 我们不能让此类的事情频繁的发生,否则会让前来沙巴旅游的游客有个很糟糕的印象。

此外城市各处还可以看到许多破烂的横幅,有的已脱落或倒挂着,非常不雅观。在此建议亚庇市政厅采取行动拆除该些脱落的横幅。
