The government needs to be transparent about why the lease for CBN has not been renewed and from where it will source the funds to manage the school. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Hasnoor Hussain, April 21, 2021.

BOVINE excrement is amazing, not only do cattle produce it, humans do too.

That came to mind when the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur’s land and mines director was quoted as saying yesterday that Convent Bukit Nanas’s (CBN) lease application was not entertained because the government wanted to run the century-old school on its own.

  • I dread to think what development the greedy developers have planned . It suits the religious fanatics to destroy schools like this. And the government can polish their credentials while they make the way free for yet another overpriced and badly built mixed development. Malaysians do not value old buildings or institutions. The destruction of the past has left Malaysia without characterful and interesting architecture which are the attraction of cities such as Paris. I sincerely hope the school with its buildings and traditions can be preserved.

  • They will find means and ways of making money. When the government is weak, all these little napoleons can do as they wish. Nobody will dare say a thing..even the PM has to keep his mouth shut.
