This is the story about Wan Azizah saying that she does not know what is going on over the Siti Kassim arrest. The Press are having a field day over her "cluelessness".
This is the Malay Mail. The headline is so sarcastic "DPM clueless" :
The Malay Mail report is also carried in Yahoo News:
- Dr Wan Azizah said preoccupied with husband’s health
- unaware police arrested Siti Kasim, breaking into her home
- DPM said she would leave the matter to the police
- “I’m sorry, please inform me... I didn’t follow [the news],” she told reporters
- “I was so busy with my husband that I could not follow the news,” she said
My comments : Sadly I must agree with the Malay Mail and Yahoo Malaysia. You should see the critical comments in Yahoo Malaysia. They say that if you cannot do the job, then do not be the DPM. Stay at home and take care of your family.
Wan Azizah is not only the DPM but she is also the Minister of Women's Affairs. The Police have acted very stupidly against TWO women ie Siti Kassim and the young woman. Surely the Ministry of Women's Affairs must have something to say?
Who is the KSU of the Ministry? Tidor sekali ke?
The Prime Minister, DPM, Ministers, Deputy Ministers all have families and their personal matters to take care. If their own children fall sick or their spouses are ill of course they have to take care of their families. No one else will.
But as PM, DPM, Minister you also hold a huge responsibility - taking care of the people.
Siti Kassim and the young woman were arrested, their freedom lost. They spent the night under arrest. If the leaders do not look into these issues, then who else will?
You cannot say "I have my own family to care for. I dont know anything about these cases."
If you feel that way, then you cannot or should not hold public office. Let others step in and do the job of looking over the peoples' affairs.
Being in office is a new role for Dr Wan Azizah. I hope she will pick up the skill sets very quickly. She has my support.
