Who cares?

How this happened?

On a recent walk around KL with an old friend who came visiting from Pontianak I was shock to see some worrying cracks on  the concrete rail behind the Dayabumi building leading to  Pasar Seni. I was indeed curious to know what really caused these cracks? The  little brain   between my ears  suggest that these cracks could indicate the possible existence of a    subterranean stream or can also be due to the effect of  the many earth quakes from across the Straits or for some other reasons I do not know.

Visible cracks

I wonder  whether any checks or investigations were done on matters like this. Maybe no one realises this or it could just be that trivial matters like this usually go unnoticed. In short someone is sleeping on his job. Only when incident like  a sink hole happened then fingers will start pointing up, down, left, right and center searching for a scapegoat. This, of course is our national trend.

What is the cause?

Even a minute matter like this needs to get  answers about the cause.If there is no cause for alarm , then it is okay. But isn't prevention  better than cure?

So who is responsible for this? I hope the relevant authority conduct investigations to establish the causes and ensure that nothing is actually wrong. Is this a construction defect? Aren't they supposed to ensure worries like this don't happen? If so, then why this and furthermore no rectification efforts were  made.  I am neither an engineer,seismologist nor geologist but,whatever the situation let's hope nothing serious occur and life can go on usual. May Allah protect us always!
