However, once Nga Kor Ming’s program concluded, all the equipment, including hand dryers and hand sanitizers, was dismantled, and the water and electricity supply were disconnected, leaving people unable to comprehend the situation.

“While there had been no water and electricity supply before, these facilities were installed a few days ago with the help of officials.”

“Unfortunately, after Nga’s program concluded, all the equipment was removed, including the water pipes from the toilet tank, reverting everything back to its original state”.

As a result, council officials were instructed to install hand dryers and hand sanitizers. Therefore, it is considered normal to remove these additional facilities after the event and revert to standard restroom equipment.

Regarding the water and electricity supply, Cheng Weiteng clarified that the restroom always had a water supply. However, one of the toilets had a leaky water pipe, which was the reason it was temporarily disconnected. The issue has since been rectified, and the water supply has been restored.

The counselor further explained there was no electrical connection because the restroom experiences low usage in the evenings. After extensive discussions, it was decided not to apply for an electricity meter and connect to the power grid.

In response to the recent complaint, the Bahau City Council has instructed the Hawkers’ Association responsible for managing the restroom to apply for an electricity meter and connect to the power grid.
