KPI Anti-Climax

What anti climax it was…

When I first heard about KPIs and other related slogans like “we accept we need to change”, “people first, party later” and other sugar coating remarks from BN, I was sceptical on whether these jokers was serious about change or just putting up a wayang kulit (shadow play) for Malaysians to be dazzled and support the new administration under Najib

(Is the KPI,  something achievable? Image source:

And today, KPIs was announced and some of it is not too bad – like to reduce street crimes by 20% by the end of 2010 (although 20% is not enough), to ensure 80% of Malaysian children get access to pre-school by 2012 (with strong emphasis on English?), by 2012, all school kids must master reading, writing and mathematics by Year 4 (with English included, I presume).

But the joke on the KPI was this:-

To improve the international perception of corruption in Malaysia by improving the country’s ranking in the world’s corruption index

And it is joke because it is headed by:-

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri Aziz (dubbed Joker of the Yearmore than once) for fighting corruption

This is one KPI that DOOMED from the moment it was announced.
