By Wartawan Nabalu News TAWAU: Former Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, Datuk Christina Liew urged all tourism stakeholders to ensure cleanliness of the public toilets at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) and the Tawau Airport. She expressed disappointment over recent complaints made by tourists about the condition of the toilets. Liew, who is Tawau MP cum Api Api Assemblywoman, said users are equally responsible for maintaining a satisfactory level of cleanliness at all times. "During my tenure, I paid special attention to the toilets at the airports, among other aspects, because first impressions are always lasting. We must give tourists and visitors a good impression upon landing in Sabah so that they have good things to say about our state. "There could have been a slide during the Covid-19 pandemic, but now that Sabah has reopened its doors to international tourists, there is no room for complacency," she said in a statement after inspecting the toilets on Wednesday. Liew hoped that the contractors entrusted with the task of keeping the airport toilets clean would do a perfect job from now. "We do not want tourists and visitors to be greeted by an awful stench from filthy lavatories on arrival at the airport," she added.
