GUA MUSANG: The route connecting four Orang Asli villages in Pos Hendrop is partially open after some debris from a landslide on Sunday (Nov 26) was cleared.

However, the Kelantan and Terengganu Orang Asli Development Department (Jakoa) said only one lane of the road can be used.

"As the road is registered under the Malaysian Road Records Information System and is under the purview of the Lojing sub-district and land office, Jakoa contacted the district officer's assistant who stated that the debris has been cleared.

"However, the debris could only be partially cleared due to the fear of another landslide," it said in a statement on Monday (Nov 27).

It also said that the Lojing sub-district and land office had stated this was only a temporary measure and further action will be taken immediately for the convenience and safety of the affected Orang Asli population.

"Jakoa will continue to provide assistance from social and welfare aspects using the allocation from the government," it said.

On Sunday, more than 20 Orang Asli families of the Temiar tribe in four villages – Kampung Hanir, Kampung Gere, Kampung Perlug and Kampung Tuel – in Pos Hendrop were stranded by the landslide which cut off roads to the settlements. – Bernama
