The Honourable Toilet Inspectors (Selayang pt 2)


Imagine spending RM10,500 to go to Mauritius and South Africa to look at toilets!

Councillor A. Kohilan Pillay a.k.a. Cleanliness Committee Chairman of Selayang Municipal Council proudly proclaimed, on his return from his "lawatan sambil belajar" trip:-

"I saw 12 public toilets and they were really clean."


I'm mighty glad that he did not fly all the way there to puke at their public toilets. *Phew*

And he reminded the public that:-

"This was an important trip. Not main-main!"

Oooh ... this stinks.

Perhaps he is implying that Citizen Nades "bermain-main" when he wrote in the SUN today:-

"... Well, Kohilan should visit public toilets in some shopping centres in Kuala Lumpur and he could have learnt more. ...

... MPS wants to have an exchange programme with Port Louis. But what on earth can they learn from their counterparts? Filing letters from disgruntled residents? Ignoring queries from bosses? Delaying payment to contractors?

But look at the brighter (councillors') side - on the pretext of reciprocating the visits, they can continue to go on an overseas holiday paid by someone else. ..."

Oh my foot! Did you hear that, YB Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik?

Your guy has hardly recovered from jet-lag and he is already salivating at the prospects of returning there on a regular basis:-

"Selayang and Port Louis agreed to an exchange programme where councillors from both councils will spend sojourns in each other's country."

I wonder if A. Kohilan Pillay is representative of the kind of talents that Gerakan attracts and retains on its stable.

But let me tell you how I feel about this as a tax-payer. I would like A. Kohilan Pillay (and all the rest of the councillors) to know that I work hard to pay the government my tax ringgit and I am not amused at all to see my hard-earned money being frittered away in such a frivolous manner.

Look here, don't play-play with my tax money!

As Citizen Nades said earlier, local elections can put a stop to the gravy trains.

I don't know why, somehow ppl elected to the govt or in the municipality assumes the citizen's IQ is same as theirs (couldn't be lower then what they have).

Aiyah ... cc, don't insult us decent and conscientious citizens by comparing our IQs with theirs.

It's a definite case of durians versus pisang (for the monkeys in the majlis).

Of course we are way smarter than them. For one, we won't spend our precious time inspecting toilets during a very expensive overseas trip, do we? That is why you and I never get to be elected as councillors. LOL

To carboncopy's question, I think the majority of voters do have IQs that are the same as theirs. How else can they get elected every time?

You are great! Hope the toilets in Selayang will improve ... at least, it is better than nothing.

Thank you.

Perhaps we can all show our collective support by e-mailing a word of encouragement to Nades at:-

Read his "No Punches Pulled" article in The SUN today - Nades summed it up best the feelings of the disgusted rakyat.
