SELANGOR exco Izham Hashim has admitted that officials in the state, including district officers, were inexperienced to handle the massive floods that had occurred in December.

The state infrastructure and agriculture committee chairman said those who were involved in the flood operations had no experience to handle the situation.

“For instance, the district officer for Hulu Langat was from the housing and local government ministry.

“She was a district officer for less than three months, so we couldn’t expect much (during the massive floods),” he told The Malaysian Insight.  – January 21, 2022.
