  • What do u expect the BN guys to do? Robbing is their core business sometimes legalfully. The Malay parties love this kind of governance? This is Ketuanan Melayu? Malays B40 are lining up to go to the pawn shop after MCO relaxed today. How many hundred times we need to tell the Malays that your leaders are robbing u guys to become hardcore poor by giving u some goodies periodically and saving their 90% of the corrupted money. And seems the majority of Malays are happy , Pls continue. We want u to be financially independent by working hard and learn to be smart. We don't want u to be behind so far but u all think we are anti Malay, anti islam and u wait lah, till u pawn off all your valuables, u cried to them for a living. Is this Maruah Melayu?

    • Im saying he could be made a scapegoat even if he is not involved. But its all conjecture at this stage, wee should enlighten us !

    • Then you should not have made such an irresponsible statement.

  • It really doesnt take long for the opportunist to rise to their old negative element activities. The fear most Malaysian had has spoken for itself. Now caught I would say the standard lame excuses are going to be tabled for us it's due to the urgency. Urgency is quite understandable but when actually the order was placed was it really two weeks before the PPE totally runs out? Than someone in KKM procurement was sleeping at their workstations. Besides that why gave a big contract out to a single company who doesnt have a track record before? Well probably the names behind the old and new company are still very much the same people it is just a change of company name. Or with the new people running the show roping in their circles of friends into the foray. This was done when you came through the back door just imaging if this government came to power through the mandate of the people, we are been screwed big time. Looking forward to the story telling they are working on to explain themselves.

  • That FT Minster said employers should pay for tests done on their foreign workers. These tests are so expensive and we all know why. Someone or some people are making money on these tests. Those responsible have to be called out and displayed in public and shamed. They're despicable. Every tome there is a Government contract, there is someone making huge amounts of money for doing nothing.
