Stateless kids causing a headache for Sabah authorities

Children of sea nomads taking a dip at Kota Kinabalu's Gaya Street fountain that triggered a social media storm.

KOTA KINABALU: A group of sea nomads or Pelahu children are posing a "headache" for authorities as they beg and mess around with the facilities around the city centre.

The children, numbering about 30, have been rounded up and lectured about their activities but to no avail as some of their parents were also going about begging along the streets with authorities having little power or laws to act.
