THE Kg Palambayan Village Consultative Council in collaboration with the Brunei-Muara District Office, the Department of Fire and Rescue as well as village residents yesterday lent Dayang Besar binti Ali, whose home collapsed recently, a helping hand.
Present was Acting Brunei-Muara District Officer, Awg Mohammed Sunadi bin Haji Buntar and Legislative Council member, Awg Haji Gapor @Haji Mohd Daud bin Karim.
Nobody was injured when the house collapsed due to its concrete foundation shifting away from its original position.
Possessions in the house were submerged due to high tide.
“We could not save our belongings as the incident happened very fast. However, we managed to save important documents from being destroyed, said Dayang Besar’s son. He requested quick action from the relevant authorities to help them to clear the house and help them rebuild in the same location.
