Actress Diana Danielle is adding her voice to the chorus of many Malaysians who want to see water polluters punished for their actions.

Diana took to Instagram to express her disappointment at a factory allegedly responsible for causing the recent odour pollution at Sungai Gong.

As a result, a water cut had to be implemented on Sept 3, affecting 1,292 areas in the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

"I am waiting for authorities to punish the water polluter heavily as this is not the first time right?... And for it to happen again during the pandemic, it could've caused another (Covid-19) cluster," she wrote on Sept 5.

In another post, Diana showed a photo of herself queuing up with her neighbours to get water.

She added water polluters are bound to repeat their mistake again if their punishment isn't heavy enough, as a compound of RM60,000 alone is equivalent to a slap on the wrist.

"What about small businesses who rely on water? What about the elderly and the sick? Then there's hospitals, nursing homes, neighbourhoods and schools. The risks are so great during this really fragile time."

The 28-year-old actress even had a direct message for those responsible:

"To all factory owners, listen up, if you don't know how to manage your industrial waste properly and you have no civic consciousness, then don't set up your factories.

"You've caused millions of Malaysians so much trouble. Educate yourselves first."
