JOHOR BARU: The Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar has arrived at [email protected] shopping mall for the launch of the first phase of ‘Rumah Mampu Milik Bangsa Johor, Yayasan Sultan Ibrahim’.

Thousands gathered welcomed the ruler at about 3.30pm. Many of them had camped out at the mall since early morning to be the first to apply for the affordable housing scheme today.
