OVER 50 former residents of the Sultan Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien College (SOASC) Hostel yesterday gathered at the home of Haji Mekrat bin Haji Awang, whose STKRJ Kampong Tungku home was gutted by fire on December 28 last year. They were joined by their spouses.

The team dismantled the burnt roof and trusses. Family and friends of Haji Mekrat, including Dato Paduka Seri Haji Abdul Rahman bin Haji Johan and Pengiran Dato Haji Abdul Hamid bin Pengiran Haji Mohd Yassin also lent a helping hand.

Haji Salam bin Haji Awang led the mass Tahlil and Doa Arwah.
