Permanent: Some of the 14 shacks that have been built at the site.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said the Indonesian colony in the Segambut area was huge and the new colony was not the only one. Most of the homes are built on private land owned by Malaysians and then rented out to Indonesians with PR status. “They hold red identification cards so it is difficult for them to buy a house of their own. They are not big income earners, and therefore can’t afford to buy homes. “Looking at their financial status, banks will not give them loans and that is why they have resorted to building their houses like this,” Lim said.
