MCA Wanita members speak their minds on various issues
WANITA members spoke about various issues, from the upcoming general election to crime, at the MCA Wanita annual general assembly.
Oh Ho Kiew from Kangar division said Wanita members were confident in the MCA in the next general election.
The Opposition, she said, was good at stirring the emotions of the people, which was irresponsible.
“We should know the lies that they tell and I have full confidence in the MCA, the only party that will provide a better future for us,” she said.
Rasah division representative Yap Siok Moy said motorcyclists should be prohibited from wearing helmets with heavily tinted visors as it would help snatch thieves hide their faces.
She said police told her they could not help her when she lodged a report after getting robbed.
“The police said they could not help as I did not recognise the culprit. He was wearing a helmet which completely hid his face,” she said, adding that Malaysians did not feel safe with the number of crime cases happening on the streets.
Yap expressed hope that the Government would install more CCTVs in public areas to increase security and help the police fight crime more effectively.
Setiawangsa division representative Chong Siow Kim urged the Chinese community to change their mindsets on vocational training.
She said vocational training played a very important role in providing skilled workers for the country's continued development.
“Vocational education provides a lot of job opportunities,” she said.
Jasin division representative Tan Siew Bee urged the Government and political parties to provide more opportunities for women to hold leadership positions.
