Shed Light on RM30 Million Lamp Post Contract!

200 smart lamp posts are going to be installed around the Klang Valley, to help with 5G networking - they also come equipped with safety features and the latest technology... and they cost approximately RM154,000 each. Which has of course prompted questions about how this price is justified, and how this contract was awarded in the first place. We dive into these tricky issues of procurement and transparency with Sri Murniati Yusuf from IDEAS.
