When the 1E-mail project was first announced, the PM unequivocally said it was a government initiative.

Then he says it cost 50 million smackeroons.

Rage. Outbursts. Ridicule.

Then PEMANDU stepped in. The website was changed from government initiative to private initiative. The objective was obvious, ie, to tell the people that it is not their money but Tricube's money. To maintain the "free" factor.

Rage. Outburts. Ridicule. Continues.

Latest news is:

Quote: The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) has said government agencies will pay Tricubes Bhd to use the company’s 1 Malaysia e-mail database, which it called both a government and private initiative.

“Agencies would have to pay a certain fee to use that,
as in any other e-mail database,”
business services NKEA communications content and infrastructure
director Dr Fadhlullah Suhaimi Abdul Malek
said in an interview on radio station BFM today."

Now I know why the motto is rakyat didahulukan.

It means the government will change info when the rakyat expresses unhappiness. The customer is always right kinda thingy.

The only thing is instead of taking into consideration what the rakyat say and improve services, our government just change info to suit what the rakyat say.


NOTE: all emphasis, mine.
