Homeless people overlooked in vaccination drive, say activists

  • "Klang councillor Lee Fu Haw said arranging for the homeless to get vaccinated was the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry's job under its welfare department and not the local government's". BUT the minister concerned has been sleeping on the job during the whole pandemic period, once in a while coming out of her extended siesta to dole out food packets and hampers to a select few. Any sane administration would have kicked out after a week at the ministry.
