Tremendous development for three areas

Date:

KUCHING: Kampung Tekajong, Kampung Penipah, and Pulau Bruit have developed tremendously over the years, which has benefited the locals there, said Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Women chief Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah

She made the comparison to when she first visited the areas in 2004 as part of the Sejahtera Task Force Programme to empower women in economic activities, which aimed to eliminate poverty and malnutrition among young children.

“Roads, bridges and communications towers (presently under construction) are enablers that will not only connect Pulau Bruit to the mainland but will also spur additional economic development in the area,” she said.

Fatimah, who is also the Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development minister, added that with more development in the areas, residents can market their items outside of Pulau Bruit.

She expressed her gratitude to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg for building the bridges as well as to elected representatives —both past and present — who have served the areas under their constituencies.
