Why Datuk Bandar Honoured

PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi ordered the Datuk Bandar (mayor) of KL, Ruslin Hasan to examine its approvals for development on slopes near Kampung Pasir, Hulu Klang.

Utusan Malaysia had expressed its surprise that ere the recent landslide resulting in a number of deaths had subsided, DBKL has approved more projects likely to be facing similar erosion problems.

But that’s precisely the standard and style that has earned its mayor the award of Panglima Jasa Negara (PJN) on the king’s birthday honours’ list.

Malaysia Boleh!


  1. Very good observation. The person or persons responsible for recommending him should explain the criteria for selection. Or is it just blindly given to whoever holds that post?

  2. The rot of corruption and the beginning of destruction in Malaysian society!

  3. Sometimes they honour a person because he is on his way out!
