Yesterday, in a Malay Mail online news item headlined Demolition chief was ‘carrying out orders‘” here’s what the paper reported in its opening paragraphs:

“THE City Hall officer responsible for depriving some 200 families of their livelihood by hastily tearing down eight illegally erected food courts in Taman Desa Setapak on May 21 said: “I was merely carrying out my duty.”

“Azlan Abdullah, who was in charge of the demolition of the eight buildings housing some 130 hawker stalls, said he did not receive any instructions to halt the demolition work.”

Notice the similarity Azlan Abdullah has in common with his superior, City Hall urban planning director, Mahadi Che Ngah, when they are asked to explain their unlawful, high-handed and inhumane demolition actions – despite the stay of action for 14 days given by their bosses?

It’s the way they give their answers as excuses with these infamous three little words: I did not


Mahadi Che Ngah: I did not read my sms (for 5 days).”


Azlan Abdullah: I did not receive any instructions to halt the demolition work.”

I am quite sure Mahadi Che Ngah would also have said “I did not read the email …” that was sent to him on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 by the Pegawai Khas kepada Datuk Bandar, En Shaari, and that’s why further demolition work was carried out first thing in the morning the next day on May 22 by Azlan Abdullah.

Mahadi Che Ngah did not read the sms that was sent to him by his boss, Ketua Pengarah DBKL, Datuk Hj Salleh on May 17.

Mahadi Che Ngah also did not read his email that was sent to him by the Pegawai Khas kepada Datuk Bandar, En Shaari on May 22. (You can read it here.)

Mahadi Che Ngah, because of the above, did not give instructions to Azlan Abdullah not to proceed with the unlawful and high-handed demolition work for 2 consecutive days.

Do Mahadi Che Ngah read anything?

Mahadi Che Ngah, just because he says “I did not …”, can seem to be getting away with causing havoc and grief to the rakyat of Kuala Lumpur as well as turning DBKL to become the enemy of the rakyat so easily?

Mahadi Che Ngah has no respect for his bosses – therefore he is the de facto Datuk Bandar of Kuala Lumpur!

Mahadi Che Ngah surely must be answerable to someone, some body, some party or some company.

The question is WHO or WHAT – and what are their motives and what do they hope to gain – for him and Azlan Abdullah to be so blatantly insubordinative and daring to go about creating havoc and misery for the rakyat of Kuala Lumpur?

Kata-kata Mahadi dan Azlan yang “busuk terkenal”

Semalam dalam akhbar Malay Mail saluran internet bertajuk “Ketua kerja perobohan bertindak ikut arahan” bermula dengan perenggan berikut:

“Pegawai DBKL yang bertanggungjawab menjejaskan punca hidup 200 keluarga di Taman Desa Setapak pada tanggal 21 Mei dengan merobohkan gerai makanan haram berkata, ’Saya hanya menjalankan tugas saya.

“Azlan Abdullah, yang mengetuai kerja merobohkan 8 bangunan yang memuatkan sebanyak 130 gerai, berkata dia tidak menerima arahan memberhentikan kerjanya.”

Dapatkah anda perasan persamaan Azlan Abdullah dan ketuanya, Pengarah Perancangan DBKL, Mahadi Che Ngah, apabila mereka diminta memberi penjelasan terhadap tindakan yang salah di sisi undang-undang, angkuh dan tidak berperikemanusiaan, meskipun arahan tangguh kerja selama 14 hari telah diberi?

Iaitu cara mereka memberi jawapan/alasan dengan perkataan: “Saya tidak…”


Mahadi Che Ngah: Saya tidak baca gua punya sms (selama 5 hari).”


Azlan Abdullah: Saya tidak menerima apa-apa arahan memberhentikan kerja merobohkan gerai.”

Saya juga amat pasti Mahadi Che Ngah akan berkata “Saya tidak baca e-mel …”yang telah dihantar kepadanya pada Rabu, 21 Mei 2008 oleh Pegawai Khas kepada Datuk Bandar, En Shaari, dan sebab itulah kerja-kerja perohan diteruskan pada 22 Mei oleh si Azlan Abdullah itu.

Mahadi Che Ngah tidak baca sms yang dihantar kepadanya oleh ketuanya, Ketua Pengarah DBKL, Datuk Hj Salleh pada Mei 17.

Mahadi Che Ngah juga tidak baca e-mel yang dihantar kepadanya oleh Pegawai Khas kepada Datuk Bandar, En Shaari pada Mei 22. (Anda boleh baca mengenainya disini.)

Mahadi Che Ngah, kerana kelalaiannya tersebut, tidak memberi arahan kepada Azlan Abdullah supaya jangan meneruskan kerja-kerja perobohan yang salah di sisi undang-undang dan angkuh selama 2 hari.

Adakah Mahadi Che Ngah baca apa-apa?

Mahadi Che Ngah, hanya oleh kerana dia kata Saya tidak …” boleh dengan senangnya melepaskan dirinya daripada dosa menjejaskan hidup menyakitkan hati rakyat Kuala Lumpur serta menjadikan DBKL musuh kepada rakyat KL?

Mahadi Che Ngah tidak menghormati ketuanya dan oleh itu dialah Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur yang sebenarnya!

Mahadi Che Ngah patut dan mesti bertanggungjawab serta tertakluk kepada seseorang, sebuah lembaga, sebuah perbandanan atau sekumpulan.

Persoalannya ialah SIAPA atau APA – dan apakah tujuan mereka dan apakah yang mereke kehendaki – untuk dia dan Azlan Abdullah dengan secara terang-terang mengikari arahan dan berani mendatangkan kekacauan dan kesengsaraan rakyat Kuala Lumpur?

  1. Not replying any enquiries is very typical of BN officers. I have written to PM,DPM,Tg.Adnan,Donald Lim and shafie afdal. None of them bothered to reply let alone help you. Ah guess they deserve the present election results.

  2. My YB here in fighting till his last bullet! i dont think any mca or bn chap can work as hard as him for the people of WM

  3. YB,why dont you initiate a fund to sue these two idiots at their personal level. No, I dont think they can hide under the sarong of DBKL. These idiots think they are above the laws.I be the first to contribute to the fund.

  4. Maaf YB Wee, aku lari topic di sini. Aku nak pembaca blog ini memberi perhatian pada angka-angka yang di laporkan. Bodoh atau pun Malas mencari rezeki dari titik peluh sendiri, ini lah akibat nya. Belum sedar, belum tahu kan. Sudah sedar, dah terlambat kan ? Kepada semua wanita yang merangkungi angka angka tersebut I say – padan muka kamu. Ingat pandai sangat. And to the rest that are in a similar line of income, especially when they put sand to other people’s rice bowl, your judgement day will come too. So sedar-lah sebelum kamu di-sedar-kan wahai hamba hamba Allah.61 Women Among 146 Detained Overseas For DrugsKUALA LUMPUR, May 27 (Bernama) — Sixty-one women were among 146 Malaysians detained overseas for drug-related offences from 2006 until March this year, the Dewan Negara was told on Tuesday.Seventy-eight people including 41 women comprising 22 Malays, 10 Indians and six Chinese were detained last year while 18 of the 29 women detained overseas until March this year were for drugs offences.”Of the 18 women, 14 were Malays, three Indians and one Chinese,” he said in reply to a question by Senator Siw Chun Eam who wanted to know the racial breakdown for those detained for drugs.He said Malaysian women were usually attracted by the large amount of money offered by agents, usually foreigners.

  5. YB, nama binatang tak boleh comment ya? ok lah disini ingin saya katakan mahadi’s dan azlan berlakon drama bersama-sama boss dia yang mendapat arahan dari menteri WP dan bekas YB MCA yang kalah. Untuk memecahbelahkan perpaduan kaum diwangsa maju, jadi untuk itu janganlah kita menyalahkan antara satu sama lain kerana sentiman perkauman adalah satu cara yang dilakukan oleh BN untuk menjadi hero agar mereka dapat menawan kembali wangsa maju walau mereka tiada peluang! Dengan menggunakan jentera kerajaan seperti DBKL yang baik ini konon nya. Perkara seperti ini akan berlaku bukan saja di wangsa maju tertapi seluruh negeri dibawah pentabiran PR, jadi harap kita rakyat malaysia dapat bersabar hingga PR menjadi kerajaan.

  7. DBKL went to 1010 and Z-one hawker stalls to take away their chairs and tables yesterday. Soon, it will be chinese stalls in TBR, Genting Klang… poor students. mamak stalls in TBR and WM not affected.the ah pek who sold soya bean at TBR disclosed that DBKL staff comes once in a while to collect ‘protection money’. MALAYSIA BOLEH!!

  8. For the 1010 and Z-zone why not we have a support movement? Order from the foodstall, stand and eat there.I wonder after the DBKL people finish doing their deeds, they would go to a similiar gerai, order their teh tarik, smoke their kretek by the five foot way tables as well.RegardsLee Wee Tak

  9. Anonymous 28 May – 07:51 Can someone help the Soya Bean Ah Pek at TBR to record the conversation and or take pictures, when the DBKL staff come once in a while to collect “protection money” !! These days what we say don’t carry any weight till we have proof. Even with proof they tend to ignore like the current situation that happened at Desa. If every single stall was demolished, we say it was fair. They say the Chinese traders were illegal, of course they are called illegal when DBKL does not issue license to them damn-it !! DBKL only issue license to the Malay stalls. Whilst the Chinese has to pay the so called kopi-o or protection money in order to survive. If not how are they to survive, sell their bodies at Sun Complex ahhh… ?? DBKL you are really a bunch of Nincompoops !! You should be very ashamed of the way you carry out your duty for the simple people.From : Yellow Rose of Texas

  10. record the conversation?hmmm… i don think so. soya bean ah pek would get into trouble for giving rasuah…i don think we should get him into trouble (though we shouldn’t condone this at well…how contradictory). this is true because some students witnessed it and a friend heard it from the ah pek himself…sad sad sad

  11. anyways the focus is not on the ah pek but the atrocities (taking ‘protection money’) DBKL carries out in broad daylight while claiming they’re just carrying out their duties. i personally witnessed one dbkl staff in uniform making catcalls at girls..can anything be done about them?i’ve lost hope

  12. obviously the two above are talking utter shuttleKOK language as they dont know what they are talking. i hope a gushing wind will come and blow away all the malay stalls that the dbkl did not have the B@&&$ to do.

  13. Another action by the DBKL was taken but this time moving on the new hawkers – Metroview and then went down to the mamaks. Why is the malay stall – Hartini – being spared?How is the government going to find solution to cater the densed population in this area – Wangsa Maju? With so many chinese and also other races and with so many cars? Where should we eat? Where should we park? Where is the concern for the rakyat? Where is the solution for this growing matter? More and more people are coming to this area…shouldn’t there be an improvement on things to concentrate on rather than to demolish all those foodstalls etc?

  14. 11:50am it is called corruption, corruption, corruption. AND Hartini ppl are related to DBKL, someone posted that few days ago. correct, correct, correct.

  15. I personally feel that even after the shops were demolished in desa setapak, it made no difference to traffic flow whatsoever.On TBR matter, I once saw a DBKL van came when i was having lunch there. They sat, and one of the hawkers brought drink to them. Then another one of them talked with the leader and awhile later they cabut. When I asked the uncled who spoke to the DBKL ppl, he said the stalls there have license, which i doubt.

  16. DBKL, don’t mess with people’s lives here and have some compassion please. You guys will be out of your jobs when the new government takes power.

  17. Dear YB,I am an eligble voter for wangsa maju but was unable to vote because I was studying in Australia then. Just wanted to say, you have another vote if I was in KL during the elections. YB, wat do you think of the idea to start an overseas PKR club to attract eligble malaysian voters in Australia?? Do you know if any such club has been opened in australia at the moment, in Perth for example??Keep on the good work and we will support you in anyway possible.Take care.Vish

  18. In reply to Lee Wee Tak comment, “Order from the foodstall, stand and eat there”i would like to say that why not we all “tapao” back and eat at home? stand and eat also not good for digestion. stand and eat there is NOT reasonable at ALL as the foods are hot especially the sup. beside that how are we going to carry our drink? perhap put it on the roadside and this will create another “beautiful” night view at WM.

  19. tsuchong,”I personally feel that even after the shops were demolished in desa setapak, it made no difference to traffic flow whatsoever.”as i have mentioned many times here, the traffic problem in desa is not caused by these demolished shops.The root of this problem are those tables and chairs that are taking up SO MANY PARKING LOTS in desa. With this, car owners have no choice but to double park and park their cars illegally. Thus, causing traffic congestion.

  21. dann,Totally agree. But even if they remove the chairs all also, still tak guna one, got alot of cars and it’s a narrow road there.Yep, went to BRJ ytd. Tables and chairs are still out as usual.

  22. Dear Encik Mahadi & Encik Azlan,Is telling a bucket full of lies over and over again in this life is the teaching of Islam Hadhari ? I just wondering because I am so lost about our holy religion Islam.

  23. Dear Lim,stand and eat there can show support but I suppose either way the hawkers would not mind.RegardsLee Wee Tak

  24. tsuchong,”Yep, went to BRJ ytd. Tables and chairs are still out as usual.”So…what does this clearly tells us? some kena sapu, some didn’t. something is very wrong here…i wonder what is it.SIGH!

  25. We’ve all been complaining, scolding and cursing here in a blog’s comment.. What good does this do us? Is there any thing that we, the people can do to stop this madness? Actions speaks louder than words. Tell me, what can we do? By right, the governemnt and DBKL should serve the people. Not the people who shall serve and fear them. Why is it the other way round in Malaysia?

  26. Datuk M Saravanan ( Depputy FT Minister – Choo Keong’s Best Friend ) has just joined the Blogger Station. I had posted a mail inquiring on his actions against DBKL warlord but apparently he had deleted my first comment. Today I have posted a Milder version as per below. Just wondering whether he will post it later.Cheers To AllDear Datuk;I have left a comment but it seems that it was lost in Cyberspace.Congrats!Just would like to find out from you on your measures to help the poor in FT.Are there any constructive ways taken to help Poor Traders in Desa Setapak; Old Klang Road & Taman Setapak ( Pasar malam )?How do you intend to use your esteemed Office against The DBKL Warlords or Little Napoleons?Best Wishes:Bryan
