Hari Raya Rush @ Kenanga Wholesale City : The Facts

We would like to credit Astro AWANI for taking the initiative to investigate the claim, and this was what they discovered.

Fact #1 : The Pictures Are Genuine

First of all, those pictures are genuine. They do indeed show lines of people queuing up at the Kenanga Wholesale City early this morning.

Fact #2 : Those Are Workers, Not Customers

According to Wendy Lam, an Assistant Manager in charge of Advertisements and Promotion at Kenanga Wholesale City, the people queuing up were workers working in the mall, not customers.

This is the first day of the CMCO (Conditional Movement Control Order), so they were queuing up to get inside to begin their first day of work.

Fact #3 : They Were Queuing Up For Inspection

To ensure safety of the workers and customers, the mall management required workers to have their temperature taken.

They were also asked to register their names, identification number and shop lot number – which caused the line to build up.

Fact #4 : They Were Not Properly Distanced

The Kenanga Wholesale City management laid yellow strips to ensure that they queued up one metre apart, at least near the entrance.

However, the pictures show people queuing up side-by-side, so they were definitely not all properly distanced.
