Facebook user Sherynn Ellyadi said in her Facebook yesterday (29 Aug) that upon realising that there was a “pregnant lady residing in this unit,” HDB rang up her mother to demand her “to move out by this or the next Wednesday latest.” She claimed that HDB had expedited her relocation to Punggol.
HDB however has denied that it had asked the woman to evacuate because of the Zka scare in the area. HDB said that as the woman’s flat in Punggol is ready, it arranged for her to collect the keys today (30 Aug).
Sherynn’s mother, Madam Lela, however stands by her daughter’s version of events. “HDB informed us that once we collect the key, we should move out as soon as possible because my daughter is pregnant,” said Madam Lela.
Sherynn, 28, is due to give birth to a boy this week. She was living in a three-room interim rental flat in Sims Drive with her husband, mother and her five young sons. She has since moved out to her mother-in-law’s flat in Woodlands. Her Built-To-Order flat in Punggol was originally to have been ready in September.
