Penang JPJ Crippled by Bribery Scourge

More proof that corruption is endemic in Malaysia!

The Penang Road Transport Department (JPJ) were crippled when MACC arrested 51 of their officers on suspicion of corruption – so much so, they need to seek assistance from their counterparts in Kedah and Perak. The two neighboring states are dispatching a total of fifteen officers to help out their colleagues in Penang. 

These malcontents were among the one hundred personnel deployed in the three JPJ offices on the island and mainland Penang. They were alleged to have been part of a racket that protected errant lorry drivers from law enforcement. 

Their modus operandi involved displaying special stickers on their vehicles to flag enforcement officers not to issue compounds. For turning a blind eye, they allegedly received monthly payments of between RM10,000 to RM32,000 each. 

Malaysians are asking: Only Penang, meh? Only JPJ, meh? 

Last evening, I was back at the KGPA in Jalan Damansara, KL to attend the Speakers’ Dream Toastmasters Club meeting. 

I was invited to deliver a speech and which I gratefully accepted. I chose a CC #6 speech titled A Speaker’s Nightmare. 

Additionally, I was also the Grammarian as well as a Table Topics speaker. 

And club members gave a congratulatory toast to Rush Teh who was elected D51 Club Growth Director 2019-2020 last week in Ipoh, Perak.
