Daro villagers to get new mosque

Date:

DARO: It’s a dream come true for residents of Kampung Penasu here as they will have a new mosque located in a safer area following the state government’s approval of an allocation of RM1.15 million.

According to a report by the Sarawak Public Communications Unit (UKAS), the new mosque will be constructed at a site near the resettlement of Kampung Penasu residents.

Daro assemblyman Safiee Ahmad said works on the new mosque were expected to begin in April.

“This project is one of the Projek Rakyat approved by the chief minister during his visit to Kampung Penasu in 2018,” he said after officiating at the closing ceremony of the Agriculture Community Outreach Programme (AgriCOP) for Daro District at Kampung Penasu Multipurpose Hall here on Thursday (Jan 27).

Earlier, Safiee chaired the Kampung Penasu Daro New Mosque Construction Coordination Meeting at the Kampung Penasu Daro Village Development and Security Committee (JKKK) Resource Centre.

It is understood that the old mosque that was built decades ago is now getting closer to the riverbank which is experiencing erosion.

On AgriCOP, Safiee said the programme was one of the state government’s approaches through the Agriculture Department to empower farmers who had been given agricultural input assistance.

The programme was the seventh implemented in the Dato area and it was attended by 60 participants from Kampung Penasu and several longhouse residents from Nanga Semah Daro.

Safiee hoped the course participants would make full use of this opportunity to further improve their agricultural skills.
