A huge blackout has swept Sabah on Monday.
The cause? Some stupid people stole (removed) steel pieces from a 132kV transmission tower that led to its collapse, triggering a major power blackout lasting nearly six hours from 6.41pm and affecting 300,000 consumers.
“… (the steel pieces are) about RM40 in scrap value but they (the thieves) caused huge losses and inconvenience to the people …”
Entire state problem for only RM40?? These idiots should be electrocuted to their skeletons … then we can use their skeletons to make up the transmission tower …
