Cleaning up

Clean-up 1
Three European countries have indicated their willingness to clean up and beautify the Klang River in Selangor.

Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, however, said the project had nothing to do with Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas).

The cost of cleaning and beautifying the 120km-long river was estimated at RM10 billion, and was expected to be completed in five years. Abdul Khalid, however, declined to name the company or the countries concerned.

"By June, we should already have a project management team and by August, we should have the private funding and by the end of the year the physical work will take place," said Khalid.

Clean-up 2
Having wasted two chances, it is now up to Umno delegates to rid the party of corrupt leaders, said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said firstly, the divisions did not do a very good job on this during the nomination process for the party's polls which will be held this week while Umno's disciplinary board also failed to arrest the scourge of money politics in Umno.

"Now a third opportunity arises and it is in the hands of the delegates attending Umno's general assembly to rectify the situation, failing which, the final chance will be with Datuk Seri Najib Razak (who will take over as Umno president and prime minister after the assembly).

"If Najib too picks tainted leaders in his cabinet, I think all hopes for Umno to remain a strong party will be lost," he said.

One clean-up is necessary to arrest environmental degradation.

The other clean-up is an euphemism about the necessity to arrest degradation in a political environment.

Both clean-ups are very necessary.
