THE street raids by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) are part of a long-term effort to round up the homeless as the council hopes to clean up the city ahead of the 2017 Sea Games, the Federal Territories Ministry said.

“As Kuala Lumpur prepares itself for the Sea Games, some unorganised areas have to be spruced up,” Deputy Federal Territories Minister Loga Balamohan told The Malaysian Insight.
