KUALA TERENGGANU, March 14 (Bernama) -- Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman refuted claims that the RM3 million amphibious bus (Amphicoach) was now damaged.
This followed a video clip showing the stalled vehicle in the river that went viral on social media.
Ahmad Razif said there was a minor faulty with the bus after he test-drove the vehicle in Sungai Terengganu yesterday.
"I personally asked for a simulation to be carried out to test the bus when in critical situation...and while I was driving it, its water jet propulsion hose came loose and was disconnected...'Alhamdulillah' (praise to God) the rescue team managed to control the situation.
"Perhaps, it happened because I had no experience handling the bus, so we have to make sure the bus is manned by an expert," he said.....
