Yayasan Kebajikan Negara which was missing from cyberspace is back. YKN's upgraded website appears interesting and refreshing but some vital matters of YKN remains a big ?
YKN's corporate information says the foundation remains under the jurisdiction of the Women, Family and Community Development Minister.
The current minister is Datuk Rohani Karim(pic) from Sarawak. Rohani is a feisty politician from Sarawak BN's lynch pin, Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Sarawak ( yup, she is not from Umno and certainly not from Wanita Umno)
Information available on YKN's website suggests that former Minister and current Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Jalil still calls the shot at YKN. Shahrizat, the last I checked, is no longer any minister. She was recently appointed as the Prime Minister's Advisor, an appointment which relates more to the upcoming Umno polls than anything else. (I think its a bad decision though )
Now the BIG ? is...
Why is Shahrizat still in-charge of a national foundation which falls under the purview of a specific ministry and cabinet minister?
Was it a cabinet decision or the decision of the Prime Minister who briefly held the Women, Family and Community Development portfolio ( after Shahrizat's senatorship was not renewed) to re-appoint the Wanita Chief into YKN or did Shahrizat do it herself?
Talk is that the PM had asked Shahrizat to 'help' helm the YKN. Is this true, did the PM do it or is someone 'selling' Najib Razak's name?
Could the PM make such a decision, if indeed it is true, when the ministry is helmed by a politician from a powerful BN component from Sarawak? Is it wise if not right or legal?
SEVENTEEN of the 21 trustees of YKN are those 'appointed by the minister'. Which minister appointed them... Shahrizat, Najib Razak or Rohani Karim?
Could somebody in some position of authority, the Prime Minister included, provide some clear answers to the above queries?
EARLY WARNING: This could turn out to be a political time-bomb if left unattended. It is just simmering, but at a very dangerous level.
p/s Who says Datuk Rohani Karim of PBB is not fit to lead YKN?
