21 September, KUALA LUMPUR – The Defence Ministry will allocate RM500,000 for renovations on houses that are in need of repairs and the necessary infrastructure for houses occupied by armed forces personnel (RKAT) in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.

The ministry in a statement today said the allocation was announced by its minister Mohamad Sabu after a working visit to Port Dickson to meet members of the Army Basic Training Centre (Pusasda) and  the RKAT in the area.

“He had the opportunity to visit a family at a housing block that was meant for those with rank of army corporals and below and saw the need to restore water tanks, pipelines, sewage and electricity,” the statement said.
