Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) revealed that it will soon set aside micro homes that could be rented out by graduates from rural areas. Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad said over 300 apartment units would be provided to help those who have finished tertiary education and are looking for jobs in Kuala Lumpur.
Micro homes are single-bedroom apartments built within urban areas to cater primarily to those from the lower-income group, reported The Star.
“The low rent will help reduce their living costs as most of them are from rural areas and low-income families… We hope this will also prepare them to be independent, this is the government’s mission,” said Khalid during the 2019 King’s Scout Certificate award ceremony.
The ceremony saw 99 scouts receiving the King’s Scout Award, with an honorary award given to Zairian Adam Abdul Aziz who was among the winners at the Asia Pacific Region Award for Outstanding Scout. He was the first Malaysian to be nominated for the award.
