  • Obvious waste of tax payers money. These people are absolutely shameless at this time to accept such an appointment and do nothing but get a fat salary and perks when the rakyat not only don't have a job; they don't even have enough food for the family. If the PM is paying out of his own pocket, fair and good. But it comes from the tax payers, with less money to spend on the rakyat. Shame, shame, shame.
