To be quite frank, I’m getting a bit tired of highlighting issues concerning the disabled community. It seems that nobody actually gives a shit.
Forget about the ministry, even those who proclaimed to be championing the OKU rights are guilty of not putting their words preached to where it matters.
But its ok, save yourself the trouble to come up with any excuses, the message is crystal clear- disability issue lacks sensationalism.
Ask people in the broadsheet business what’s boringly repetitive more than any opening speech in a government function. Even they will struggle to come up with an affirmative answer because they too, couldn’t give two hoots about it.
So you cant really blame the society. Issues brought up are basically the same old predicament that can be traced as far back as one thousand decades ago. To put it simply, nobody listens to broken record.
Then we have the really clever officers at JKM, the department that supposedly takes care of our well being since the beginning of human existence.
They are competent, alright. Time and energy are well spent hunting down disabled people subscribing to a freaking Astro.
For goodness sake, fine, we’ll skip the monetary aid. By all means the ministry can use all the money allocated from the country’s recent mini budget as long it is used to completely revamp the entire JKM body. The whole institution stinks and in dire need of a total facelift. Getting rid of the deadwoods would be a good start and down right necessary.
However I don’t expect the minister responsible, DS Sharizat Jalil to clean up the whole mess overnight. But I do hope she’ll make it right this time around, and all ears.
This second stint at the helm should cut the workload tasked on her into halve. Cliché as it may sound but she’s really got to shape things up.
I mean, second time failure can always put serious dent on one’s reputation, right?
Sorry DS Sharizat, never meant to scare you but now that the big boss has laid his wishes down, time is very much against you.
Performance has to be now.
