Kota Kinabalu: Kota Kinabalu MP Chan Foong Hin has urged for the immediate operation of a shelter home for stateless street children in the city, which according to him was supposed to have been started at the end of January. 

Chan said Assistant Minister to Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Abidin Madingkir, the minister in charge of City Hall, announced on 31 January that the shelter was ready to operate in Kota Kinabalu.

"However, it has been a whole week and that the stateless kids had continued on with their shenanigans on the busy streets in the Kota Kinabalu city centre, knocking on car windows and frightening road users without any heed of their own personal safety," said Chan, who is also Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, in a statement Tuesday.
