When govt SERVANTS play God

There have been instances where high ranking government servants and ‘advisors’ dictate terms beyond their jurisdiction.

And there are little Napoleons who have the audacity of spending tax-payers money to file frivolous legal suits against third parties.
 

To them, flying business class and spending nights in luxurious hotels are “perks of being in the government”.

Such antics reflect badly on the minister and the administration.

The press will take the ministers to task but ministers hardly tick off their subordinates for fear of rocking the boat.

Even UK newspaper The Guardian, had last Sunday, reported that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak (pic) will not risk downsizing the bloated civil service when he presents the 2014 Budget on Friday.

Trust me, sir, you don’t need some of them for they have only tarnished your reputation.

  2. Not only the gov servant act all high and mighty, people running sports associations using taxpayers money act the same way too!
    A lot of taxpayers money are channeled to all the sports associations starting from district right up to national level. The culprit doing it are the Menteri Besar's at the state level and the Ministries at the federal level. There are also money belonging to the people being given indirectly to sports associations through companies and GLC. Corporate and private entities are supposed to pay taxes to the government for the well being of the people, but instead it goes to a bunch of people in the name of sports depriving the masses, through tax exemption.

    Football association happened to be the most fortunate ones gaining from it, even though the sport is not up to the expectation. There are only a handful of sports associations capable of putting Malaysia among the best, but also failing when comes to development.
    We must put in place a mechanism to audit and prosecute all the sports association at all levels, if we're really serious about accountability. MB Selangor seemed to be at the top spot, when comes to giving away taxpayers money. Imagine, the amount of money given to the Football Association of Selangor, believed to be more then RM10 million annually. Where does all these money really goes to besides paying the players and staff salary?
    Taxpayers must begin to demand explanation and justification on how the monies are being spend by investigating their annual accounts report.
    Most sports association in the country are being run by politicians and people close to politics who owns up to bad practices and getting hefty allowances and perks.

    Aren't they supposed to be volunteers in a non profitable organisations??

    These are the main reasons why the same people are always occupying the association term after term. They even go to the extent of buying votes and manipulating the process to deny others in-order to safe guard their strong hold term after term.

    1. HSKL is absolutely right. Everybody knows what goes on. Buying votes/proxies etc is the name of the game. How else would these "officials" be there forever and ever! Every term is 4 years L o n g! Plenty of opportunities for the "right' people.

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.

Why?

It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.

UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
