KUALA LUMPUR: The Government has approved an immediate allocation of RM9.5mil to renovate the National Mosque.
The works include repairing the roof, drainage system, toilets, loudspeaker system and beautifying the mosque and the nearby Warriors Mausoleum, Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said.
The renovation, beginning next month, was expected to be completed by year-end, he told reporters after visiting the mosque with Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Jamil Khir Baharom yesterday.
Shaziman said the allocation would also be used to put up additional signboards giving, among others, the history of the leaders buried there. — Bernama
