Ownself check Ownself

Posted by Teo Hong on Saturday, 8 July 2017

In its Facebook page, Marine Parade Town Council admitted that the cleaner of a particular cluster of blocks is his own supervisor, before calling the man, Moktar, “an unsung hero.”

They said:

You have probably seen photos of Moktar, one of our conservancy supervisors, circulating on Facebook over the last few days. Given the interest, we thought this is a chance for us to introduce him better:
Moktar has been working with us for the past 5 years and is the supervisor for Blk 120 to 134 Geylang East Central / Avenue 1. Therefore, Moktar is not only a supervisor, but he is also the cleaner to that particular block. He reports to his site manager, who oversees the progress of his work, on a daily basis.
Moktar is aware of his overnight online sensation. When asked about how he feels working in the estate, he said that he is pleased to serve our residents and will continue doing his best to upkeep our estate. Truly our unsung hero.
A resident of Geylang East Central, Mrs Veronica Wong, said this of Moktar, “Moktar is a polite and hardworking man. Together with his team, he always ensures that the estate is kept clean.”
So, if you see Moktar around, do say Hi! Also, stay tuned for more features of our unsung heroes here on our Page!
