KUCHING (Jan 14): Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof has apologised to the public for not allowing them to visit his family and pay their last respects to his mother, the late Dayang Rosnah Abang Madeli who passed away at the age of 90 yesterday (Jan 13) afternoon.

“We apologise for having to stop members of the public from coming and visiting our house in order to comply with the CMCO which is being enforced. We also apologise for not being able to respond to each individual message sent to us,” he said.


Fadillah, who is also Petra Jaya MP, said he and his family thanked Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg for visiting his family and also participating in funeral prayers for his late mother.


“My family and I would also like to thank all the leaders of the country and the people of Malaysia for their condolences and prayers for our beloved mother, whether through social media, WhatsApp or in person at the residence and during the funeral,” he said.
