It was only yesterday that I was talking about the ‘manhole ‘ syndrome , when I refered to the blunder made by the apex university of the country.
It seems that the culture of mediocrity which I referred to yesterday is fast becoming the culture of ‘rots’. Just look at the headlines of these 2 news today:
1. roof of year-old stadium collapses
The collapse of Jaya Supermarket in PJ is bad enough, but the collapse of this new stadium is not excusable…. What shoddy work for the amount of money paid… Poor materials , poor workmanship, poor supervision, any or all of the above??? or to quote Samy’s favourite phrase: Act of God?
The moral of the story is: be careful when you step into a new public building, and be prepared to run the race of your life if you see any cracks appearing before you…
2. Hairdresser killed in pothole mishap
From The Star:
A 36-year-old hairdresser was killed when she fell off a motorcycle which hit a pothole.
Lee Nyam Kan was riding pillion on a motorcycle ridden by her husband when the rear tyre punctured as it went over the pothole, causing both of them to lose balance and fall.
This type of death should be preventable if the authority is more vigilant.. This pothole syndrome is just like the manhole syndrome which I have talked about…
My condolence to the deceased family,, but….What a waste of life!!
