I wonder if everyone is aghast as I am at the facts coming out from Selangor State Assembly's Select Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) looking in the funding of Balkis (the Wives of Selangor Elected Representatives' Charity and Welfare Organization).
Charity and welfare seemed the most appropriate words in this case with the question being: whose?
I really shouldn’t comment too much as even the police had cleared Balkis of any misdemeanor so who are we to say otherwise, eh..
Keeping mum, however, is also the reason why all these peculiar outflow are occurring, and had it not been for Selcat proceedings, never mind the conspiratorial slant some are making it out as vis a vis the Umno Youth contest.
Much has been said about the new media and how the truth (is it really?) is coming out from this brave addition to the Fourth Statesman.
All those juicy facts and its left to The Sun to regurgitate them to the public.
With Selcat’s role restricted to mere fact finding, there is however little in terms of a follow up that can be expected from all this expose.
After all, (ahem..)Balkis has been cleared by the authorities.
AND RM1 million allocations under the so-called Corporate Social Responsibility Programme for welfare activities including a programme on repentence is quite negligible, isn’t it?
Repentence is after all a good thing as it can get you to the Pearly gates of heaven.
