PETALING JAYA: A Sabah minister has hinted that there might be a reshuffle in the state’s water department to solve the water shortage issues.

State finance minister Masidi Manjun said both he and the state’s work minister Shahelmy Yahya believe it is a matter of finding the right people to helm positions in order to solve the issue.

“Both of us feel there’s an urgent need to put the right people in the right place at all levels of the Water Department for better management and distribution of available water supply to consumers,” he said, according to The Star.

The report also added that Shahelmy agrees that department officials need to be more proactive in order to resolve Sabah’s water woes.

Shahelmy also said his ministry is working closely with the state’s water department to resolve the issue.

Sabah’s water woes have become a frequent highlight in social media. Earlier this month, Shahelmy called up the department’s director after Sandakan MP Vivian Wong Shir Yee said people of Sandakan had to drink “salty” water for three months.
