What is RM29000?

Probe on repair of school - The Star, 21st Sept 2006
  • Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said: “We have been informed by Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu and Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting that the approved funds for the school amounted to a little more than RM29,000 but the value of the work was only about RM3,000.
  • “We want this matter investigated thoroughly to find out how it happened and who is responsible, and the Cabinet wants to study this report. It is a matter of urgency,” he said.
  • “We take this matter seriously, and we do not want to cover up any weaknesses or fraud which happened.
  • “In this case, we will investigate and if anyone can be charged over carelessness or abuse of power, appropriate action will be taken.”

From all the doubts raised by the leaders and Malaysians, no clear explanation and actions were being taken to addressed the issue. We are still waiting for the "transparency" where millions and billions of the money goes and suddenly, our DPM is so focused on RM29000 that was being spent to do a RM3000's job. What is RM29000 as compare to all the hottest issues raised recently?

Let's see if this is a good start for futher investigations on other bigger items...
