UPDATED: This elderly lady has been seen begging around the town center – kopitiams, shops, banks and wet market areas over the last few days.
Recently, she was also spotted begging from Miss Malaysia Dewi Liana Serietha, while the latter was visiting Bintulu.
We’re not certain what transpired here and let’s hope the relevant authorities will investigate the matter.
Several people said they spotted her begging in other cities – Kuching and Miri.
She would appear limp and walking with cane (although several witnesses claimed she wasn’t) whenever she’s making her begging rounds here in Bintulu.
Government has been pondering ways to restrict begging in countries including making it illegal.
Here are photos of her as shared on social media.
