COLLAPSED HIGHWAY CONTRACTOR OWNED BY PAP GRASSROOTS LEADERS

Or Kim Peow Contractor is the firm responsible for building the highway along Upper Changi Rd, but what's interesting is, it is owned by OKP Holdings Pte Ltd, whose Chairman and Directors are grassroots leaders!

His 3 sons are Directors of the company (surprise surprise!) and were similarly awarded for their contributions to public service.
