MyKad, MyMalaise, MyWish


MyKad::The More Than Half Billion Ringgit Debacle

It has been six years and more, much more than the reported ringgit half billion down the drain and today today what do most of us have in our pockets, a My Kad which served the single function which was done by our previous laminated non-chipped non-super, non-multifunctioned identity card. The MyKad debacle, fiasco, scandal (call it what you want) epitomise how out of touch the gomen of the day is with the rakyat it is suppose to serve. The gomen people who accepted the MyKad idea must have been blinded by the ringgit sign when they were sold the idea by those knaves.

Do We Have a MyMalaise Gomen?

Often what the gomen tend to thrust down our throats are often untested ideas and programmes like MyKad and PLKN. Whatever pilot studies carried out had forgone conclusions. Pilot studies were more like profit studies. They were more for finding out how much and to what maximal extent profits could be made out of the programmes to be implemented rather than what benefits they would truly bring to the rakyat. And despite knowing that they being ill conceived and not beneficial, these programmes are to be continued to the detriment of the rakyat. We are now told that the gomen realising that super-multi-functional MyKad super-multi-functions are underused, the gomen is now carry out a series of special programmes next year to address the problem. It is going to be a case of more rakyat money down the drain and into the pockets of you-know-who. Will the gomen please stop mis-using the rakyat money? Will the gomen wake up from its slumber, unlike those unscrupulous officials who were sold on the idea, the rakyat knows that it is infinitely unwise to put all eggs in one basket and will not utilise the other MyKad functions. We are not basket cases, imagine losing one's super-multi-functional MyKad and while waiting for a replacement from our super-inefficient authorities, one is left unable to access one's ATM account, the passport is in limbo and the Touch N' Go becomes No'Go and without the credit card, one may have to go abegging for groceries and foodstuff.

Our MyMalaise gomen instead of putting the blame for the MyKad debacle squarely at its own doorsteps, its MINIster, the Rt Hon Deputy Home Affairs Minister Datuk Tan Chai HoTan has the guts to say that apart from gomen agencies, the private sector and MyKad holders, were to blame for the poor uptake of the various MyKad functions. Did the Rt Hon Deputy MINIster ensure that a proper pilot study was carried out to gauge the response of the rakyat before the super MyKad was implemented? Or was he too busy or lazy to do so. What we have been having is a gomen which blinded by other concerns and refuses to do its homework and as a result rakyat money is mis-spent bringing little or no benefit.

My New Year Wish

My wish is that the our gomen, after its magnificent victory in the 11th election, will wake up from its slumber and get to work. i wish it will work hard to implement programmes that are truly beneficial to the rakyat and not to its cronies. If not when the 12th comes, my wish is that the rakyat will know the proper action to take and allow this MyMalaise gomen to continue with its eternal slumber.
