The Malaysian public transport system has always been a topic for debate with some complaining of its inefficiency. Let’s just say the incident today definitely feeds into that narrative.

A monorail coach at the Jalan Maharajalela Station heading towards KL Sentral suddenly caught fire around 7.20am today (24 December).
