Elderly Mr Lim Kim Seng has been going around warning his neighbors about a critical flaw in the metal gates installed in his Block 76, Marine Drive, for residents under the Home Improvement Programme.
68 year-old Mr Lim says that the fasteners used to secure the metal gates to the concrete walls are easily removed with a few simple tools and would easily grant access to would-be criminals.
Mr Lim was so concerned by this discovery, he went door to door to each of his neighbors and warned them about the flaw in HDB's metal gates. To their horror, some of Mr Lim's neighbors have confirmed his discovery.
According to Mr Lim's wife, Mr Lim constantly worries about the safety of his family and the security of his flat, having experienced a house break-in once years ago.
