Fighting corruption: The stark reality

Let’s get our cheerleaders and start patting our backs for coming within the tops for corruption, again.

It is sheer nonsensical and incomprehensible when the public rattles in anger the moment issues surrounding corruption brew up. But,why the whining and complaints when we have re-elected the crooked government back into power during the May election? We could have booted out the corrupt with a cross but decided to keep the garbage with continuous power to rule and now suffer the consequences. The argument is neither speculative, nor a bedtime fiction but stark reality that is razor sharp hurtful.

The Auditor-General’s Report has annually stripped naked the BN government in revealing how hard- earned tax payers monies are spent in manner that borders vulgarity. The income taxmen will not wink an eye to persecute and prosecute any individual or company even for a sen; and literally beat the devils out of you if one cannot justify his personal accounts. With the current tax system, the liability falls squarely on the shoulders of the payee and there is no two ways about it.

And yet, the government heads, ministers and lawmakers are getting away scot free; including the Internal Revenue Board men; for spending the public money irresponsibly as revealed by the audit report. The only element that comes to mind in a jiffy is ‘large scale, syndicated and organised corruption’ among public servants. By standard operating procedures and systemic procurement methodologies, it is impossible to procure unnecessary equipments, out of specification materials and embark on ill coordinated nationwide projects.

Even the illiterate can vouch that a simple project management philosophy must be in place before penning a confirmation and agreeing to terms which will benefit the rakyat. The AG’s report disgustingly up-rooted not only rotten policy making but also gross non-adherence to the very same rules and regulations formulated by the lawmakers who lead the various government agencies and statutory bodies.

The BN government ‘who thinks it knows best’ ignored the fundamentals in project management and can only be said that they were overwhelmed with corruption and greed to get things moving for the sake of it; since paybacks would have been part of the deals. How could the channel of supply to government agencies not be audited and verified timely and honestly; in securing the various goods and services from third parties? Why the basics of continuous assessment and audit control points were not respected?

Najib and his team of experts need not be tutored on quality issues and its’ systems, but the fact that they deliberately brushed aside the principles can only be attributed to them giving their blessing for corruption. The issue of bloated and overpriced inventories, non-workable community projects and lack of open bidding for tenders are not something new. The AG is in essence churning out old and stale fungated bread for repeats that will only find its way into the archives as it is near sure guarantee that once again nothing significant or drastic will occur.

No heads will roll and neither any minister is going to resign in shame for the entire financial blunder under their care and keep. Life will continue and they may even get promoted for the matter. Corruption in Malaysia is a cancer in the most advanced stage and no amount of therapy or medication can ever put it into remission. We have embraced this cancer into all systems with such precision that it has even outwitted the AIDS virus; which is infamously known as the ‘intelligent virus’ for its maneuverability around the immune system.

Our ministers and head of departments deserve genuine post-doctorate accolades in executing the art of corruption in such elegant and refined manner. The global economy is bleeding and soon may go into shock once more, but we Malaysians and some undeserving personalities called ‘leaders’ in and out of the government vehemently deny the facts and continue their efforts to fool the rakyat. Nevertheless to those loyal BN supporters, kudos to you and keep the corrupted and corruption index afloat to higher levels for your next generation.

  3. Whistle blowers might even be jailed under the PCA for tarnishing the “good” name of the country and UMNO Baru controlled BN government and might stand accused of trying to incite riot against the government.
