It’s no secret that the struggles of Malaysians with disabilities are often overlooked.

From able-bodied people taking up disabled parking spaces to disabled Malaysians having difficulties in finding jobs, many aspects of their lives have become much harder due to our ignorance and intolerance.

For instance, a video shared by Aman AKL on TikTok, showcased a disabled, wheelchair-bound man having to get up and crawl down the stairs of his building as the elevators were not working.

Aman AKL wrote, “The lift is spoiled again. Pity Abang Husny.”

Based on other videos on his TikTok, the building’s elevator seems to be constantly faulty, forcing Abang Husny to  use his hands to climb up and down the stairs to go to work.

“We ask that the building’s management be more mindful and OKU-friendly.”

Based on a post by Malaysia News Lab, the incident allegedly took place at a government building in Kuantan, where Abang Husny works as an Orang Asli Development Department (Jakoa) officer.

The management of the government building has since apologised.

“The management of Bangunan Wisma Persekutuan came to the Pahang Jakoa office to provide (us) an explanation and apologised for the complications that arose and promised to fix the lift issue as soon as possible,” shared Pahang Jakoa director-general, Johari Alwi.

Although we’re happy that this incident has been resolved, we must always keep in mind that countless other disabled Malaysians are struggling with the same problem, such as those who live in apartment buildings with constantly faulty lifts.

We genuinely hope that the authorities and building management look into implementing better and more OKU-friendly infrastructure for our fellow Malaysians with disabilities.

You can watch the saddening video here.

 

Do you think that the authorities should implement more OKU-friendly infrastructure? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
