KUALA LUMPUR: Sports and Youth Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has expressed his frustration on social media over the ongoing water disruption in the Klang Valley, due to a burst pipe in Sungai Buloh.

Khairy has so far posted a three-part video on his Instagram account, which he shot around his house, demonstrating how the water cut has disrupted life in his household.

In the first clip, Khairy asks his son if he has taken his bath, while several pails of water can be seen in front of his house.

He captioned the video “Mana air ni?!” (Where is the water?).

In the second clip, Khairy asks his second son if he has showered after playing football.

“You look dirty and smelly after playing football, have you showered?” His son then goes into a bathroom and turns on the tap, but no water comes out.

At about 8am today, Khairy posted the final clip, showing him saying: “I can’t wait. Air Selangor (Syabas) said there will be water after 48 hours...”

He then says “Bismillahirahmannirahim”, turns on a water tap… but only a trickle of water flows out – and he demonstrates his frustration.
