KOTA KINABALU:  Api Api Assemblywoman Datuk Christina Liew has contributed 20 bags of cement to the Yu family whose kitchen wall was destroyed by a landslide at Sunny Garden on Tuesday which coincided with the Mid-Autumn Festival.

She handed over the items to houseowner Joseph Yu, 87, during her visit to his single-storey home on Friday.

The incident occurred after 7am when Yu’s daughter Betty, 51, and the maid, 45, were preparing breakfast in the kitchen.

Liew pointing to the damage at the backyard of Lee’s home.

“Fortunately, no one was hurt. I will communicate with Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) on possible measures to be taken to prevent a recurrence in future as the hilly land where soil erosion occurs, borders the back of the affected terrace houses,” Liew told reporters at the site of the landslide.

Meanwhile, Yu expressed his gratitude to the  Api Api Assemblywoman for her concern and contribution.

Liew, who was accompanied by the Api Api Constituency Liaison officer, Grace Lee, also visited the home of Yu’s neighbour Natasha Lee whose backyard was slightly damaged by the landslide.
