: Worried with the presence of “uninvited guests” from the Batek tribe of the orang asli community in Kampung Kuala Koh, Gua Musang, more than 150 people from the Semaq Beri tribe have reportedly left their homes at Sungai Berua here since two weeks ago.

“First, two of them came, then more came and informed some have died. (I) thought they wanted to get treatment from the health clinic here (Sungai Berua) but after some time, they were becoming sick.

The cause or causes of the deaths have yet to be ascertained but the victims were reported to be suffering from breathing difficulties. A pneumonia outbreak is suspected.

According to Ibrahim, as a practice, Semaq Beri tribe parents will go hunting in the forest, leaving their children at home usually but since the cause of the illness still remains a question mark, parents bring all the kids though still young.

A Semaq Beri tribe member, Samad Kelapa, who is in his 40s, said he will stay in Kampung Gerdong forest area for few days to ensure no health issues arise, and at the same time, seize the opportunity to collect rattan to be sold.

“Total students registered are 104 people but now (with those having left their home) it has decreased to about 30 students,“ he said. —
