MELAKA, MAY 29 — Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) today denied a message that went viral on social media that its board of directors has received government orders to raise electricity tariffs by 30 per cent.

TNB said the message, which was allegedly written by a TNB employee, was false and baseless.

“TNB does not have any employees as named in the message, so TNB advises the public to ignore and not share it,” it said in a statement.
