Flooding in Sibu is a recurrent issue and it looks like it is going to be an unending nightmare!
During the 12th GE, it emerged to be one of the hottest election issues being propagated by the candidates from both sides.
Consequent upon the election, the government proposed a flood mitigation project involving building dams. The 400-million project was not well favoured by Sibuians who were of the opinion that dredging would be more workable.
In the midst of debates and loud public outcry, the issue died down for no known cause. But Sibuians are generally very concerned about the progress of the mitigation plan.
The nightmarish floods continue to loom large in Sibuians' minds. They humbly hope that a workable plan is forthcoming without further showmanship.
Dear Sibuians, what do you think?
