National Security 2021: Expect More Rohingyas Incursions After Coup in Myanmar

Rohingya Refugee Countries

A couple of news in the last few weeks has been rather unsettling especially in relation to Rohingyas who had always made Malaysia their desired country to run to after leaving the refugee camp in Bangladesh. Infographic source: Anadolu Agency

Now it looks like they have found another place to stop over before making their run to Malaysia where there is a bigger crowd of them making trouble.

Governance 101: Where 15 Pledges for Better Citizens Headed in Next 3 Years?

better citizen

Back in May 2018, something historical happened – BN who held power for past 61 years lost the general elections – the story detailed in Part 1 & Part 2. And with that, the old Malaysia died and a “New Malaysia” or in Bahasa, “Malaysia Baru” was born. Image source: Wikipedia

However since then, the New Malaysia like a newborn baby have been struggling to stand up, been making too many silly mistakes, edging dangerously on race & religion related matters and yet to show any positive results.

On a daily basis, there is no lack of news of power tussles, accusations that one political party is leading another, race & religion is under threat and the proposed succession plan not materialising. The political landscape is indeed in a mess but we will come to the main actors, i.e. the politicians and the so-called NGOs later.

Governance 101: Now Anybody Can Fly Free On Taxpayers Money?

fly

(Whether it is a private jet or a public abuse of trust and power – such nonsense cannot be tolerated at any level even for a high ranking politician’s wife. Just because it is approved by the Cabinet, don’t these people who fly have some internal conscience or they are just corrupt to the core? They must be counting their blessings that they are not in China. Cartoon source: Zunar @ Malaysiakini)

Clean Elections 101: Is PM Talking Cock?

(With elections around the corner, expect more incidents of talking cock to be sprouting out from the foamy mouth of the many half-past-six politicians around the country and on a more regular basis too. Image source: http://www.olx.com.sg)

Governance 101: Wasteful & Short-Sighted Again

Governance

(In the Global Competitiveness Report 2010–2011, Malaysia ranks 25 out of 139 countries where public spending & governance is somewhat better managed than the rest but then again, if one reads deeper into the report, Malaysia’s ranking is only 4.2 out of the full 7 on the mark. We are no where close to our neighbour down south who ranks at the top at 6.1 despite their limited natural resources, human resource and living space)

Governance 101: Yes, It’s A Suicide Verdict But….

teoh beng hock MACC suicide

(So, this was “suicide due to guilt feeling” back then but with a twist now – it is driven to suicide by aggressive interrogation. No matter how we look at it, Teoh Beng Hock should not be dead in the first place – it is a tragic loss and failure by MACC to conduct its business in the right way)

Elections 101: Sarawak State Elections, The Spins

sarawak election

(Taib Mahmud and his unexplained growth in wealth is the focus of the opposition in Sarawak State Elections. It will be difficult for Najib & BN to justify Taib continuing his hold on the powers in Sarawak. More so after hard evidence of native land grab – estimated 70,000 hectares, an area which is larger than Singapore and luxury properties abroad under Taib and Taib’s family members starts to emerge.

Rosmah Newspaper Ad Good Name

Just how Kohilan Pillay wants Malaysians to uphold the good name of the Government Leaders abroad? By taking expensive ads in the foreign newspapers for their non-elected wives? Image source: http://www.thenutgraph.com

Enforcement 101: How Can MACC Truly Improve?

Kamal Haasan Indian Tamil Movie Senapathy MACC Corruption

(We don’t have Senapathy, the old man who kills corrupt government officials and even his own corrupt son in the 1996 Tamil movie Indian but we have something close called MACC. The question is how far it has been effective in “weeding” out the corruption from the system. Image source: IMDB)
