The Education Ministry’s buildings division principal assistant secretary (Technical) Samini Omar is an asset to the civil service. For 4 years he has been waiting for the CIF, and only after the roof collapsing, some other repairs in the same school has been detected, and the industrial workshop is closed. I wonder if he has children and whether he would have considered it safe to send the children to this school. How many more schoold buildings don’t have CIF. we don’t know. Keep it up Samini you are doing a good job.

Roof Collapse School Operating Without CF

MARANG, April 13 (Bernama) — Sekolah Menengah Wakaf Tapai whose hall roof collapsed on Friday does not have a Certificate of Fitness for Occupation (CF) although it has been operating since 2005.
The Education Ministry’s buildings division principal assistant secretary (Technical) Samini Omar said the school, built under the Eighth Malaysia Plan, had to be used because of pressing needs at the time.
“We were issued a temporary CF while waiting for the CF to enable the school to be used because of pressing needs at the time.
“The contractor involved has agreed to undertake the repairs (at the hall) and also some more repairs at other buildings in the school,” he told reporters after making a visit to the school here today.
The roof of the hall, which cost over RM2 million to build, collapsed at 8.30pm on Friday.
However, there were no casualties in the incident.
Samini also said the school’s management had been instructed to stop using its industrial workshop building because its roof also appeared to have structural problems.
Investigations also revealed there were soil movements where the school was built, he said.
However, he said this did not affect the overall safety of the four building structures of the school.
He assured everyone that all necessary steps would be taken to ensure safety would be paramount at the school.
Meanwhile, State Education, Higher Education, Science and Technology and Human Resources Committee chairman Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman asked the ministry to inspect all school halls with the same design in the state to ensure safety of students and teachers in the schools concerned.
