KUALA LUMPUR – The Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM) denied two more fake news as the country moves into the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).

According to the ministry’s Quick Response Team, the fake news involved the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the Metrojaya shopping malls.

DBKL denied that it allowed Ramadan bazaar following a viral video showing the public crowding an area to purchase food for the breaking of fast in Kampung Pandan.

“Based on monitoring by DBKL at the location, there was no Ramadan bazaar there but merely a roadside stall that was being patronised by consumers who did not observe social distancing.

“DBKL emphasized that it maintains its decision of not allowing any Ramadan bazaar to be held this year,” it said in a statement today.

Meanwhile, Metrojaya dismissed claims that the goods sold in its chain store in Metrojaya Suria, Sabah are fake following the damage of its goods after the premise was closed during the Movement Control Order (MCO).

“Metrojaya assures that all damaged products were replaced with new stock.

“The management of Metrojaya is also conducting an investigation to find out the real cause why the products experienced such damage,” it said. –MalaysiaGazette
