Auditor-General’s 2012 Report (5)
The Malaysian Insider
October 01, 2013
The Auditor-General Department revealed a waste of RM199 million which was spent on the construction of four incinerators by the National Solid Waste Management Department over the last four years, as there was no expertise to operate such machines once they were built.
The incinerators were built in Langkawi, Pangkor, Tioman and Cameron Highlands.
According to the AG Report released today, the construction of these incinerators was also delayed two to three times from their original schedule.
The report revealed that three of the incinerators were not in operation for between 223 and 642 days, due to the lack of expertise.
The plan to build the fifth incinerator in Labuan also did not take off.
“The Pahang government had spent nearly RM1 million last year to clean up the mess the old way,” the report added.
The Federal Government had allocated RM337.5 million for the whole project. – October 1, 2013.
