Believe it or not, an arch is to be built at the Federal Highway and no one knows who is doing it. At least that’s how it seems.
This much the probing journos from Malay Mail know: The arch will straddle the highway near the UEM and Malay College Old Boys’ Association (MCOBA) buildings at the Jalan Syed Putra stretch.
Everything else is shrouded in mystery, who is building it, who approved it and, more importantly, why it is being built now and how much it will cost in the midst of a global credit crunch and Malaysians being told to be prudent in their spending.
For the rest of the Malay Mail story read here .
Questions aplenty, denials even more and something smells like rotten fish here, but I know the gutsy guys and gals in Malay Mail are not going to sit back or let it slip by, will they?.....no siree !! The plot thickens and as I read the story for the second day today it gets more and more interesting, folks !
I must say "kudos" to the pains-taking and tireless team who are on this story ! Give us more answers and let heads roll if there has been discrepancies in the awarding of this contract ! Now for those who want to know more.... go get your copy of the Malay Mail and read all about it !!
Cheers to the Malay Mail team !
