Keep Kuching Clean and Think before you throw.
There is a never-ending barrage of the above channeled to us through our
government sponsored television adverts and campaign posters about
‘keeping Malaysia clean’, yet it seems that the efficacy of the
above mentioned remains somewhat of a mixed bag. I was once told of a lawyer who even declared that is his ‘right to
dump his rubbish wherever he pleases’ as we pay taxes to have the
council clean up our streets. I don’t see this as doing justice to our
road sweepers. While Kuching can certainly claim the spot for being one of the cleanest
cities in the country, this habit is becoming entrenched. All too
often, I see drivers who wind down their car window and dump their
rubbish onto the streets, with a carload of kids.
