MTsN 19: Last Building Routine Maintenance In 2019

Deputy Public Relations (Humas) of Madrasah Tsanawiyah Negeri (MTsN) 19, Pondok Labu, South Jakarta, Gozali said that the last routine maintenance of the school building was carried out in 2019.

“We have carried out maintenance, meaning we have seen and proposed. For the last maintenance, it is likely that in 2019, PUPR has also done it," said Gozali at MTsN 19, Pondok Labu, South Jakarta, Saturday (8/10).

Gozali emphasized that his party was still carrying out maintenance in order to pay attention to the quality and resilience of school buildings.

He added that prior to the collapse of the school boundary wall, the building still looked solid so it was not expected that it would collapse when exposed to the flood.

"Physically, we can see that we are strong because we just woke up in 2015," he said.

It was also stated that the cause of the flood entering the school was thought to have come from large water channels and water reservoirs such as reservoirs located in the area.

However, he did not explain in detail where the water flow came from or the name of the reservoir.

He said another factor that caused flooding in the school area was because the soil was in the shape of a bowl like a water reservoir.

“It so happens that our school is geographically shaped like a bowl, right, much lower. When the water comes and then unites, that's what happened to our school," he said.

On Saturday, the Central Police Forensic Laboratory Team (Puslabfor) secured the debris from the wall after investigating the crime scene (TKP) at MTsN 19, Pondok Labu, South Jakarta, as evidence for laboratory testing.
