Raub Citizen Must Reject Dishonest BN Candidate - Ho Khai Mun
Integrity is fundamental and one of the most important attributes of a candidate. But BN GE13 Parliamentary Candidate Ho Khai Mun lacks such basic characteristic. On 23 March 2013, Ho insisted that he would not contest in Raub, shockingly, in less than one months, on 15 April it was announced that he would be representing MCA to compete in Raub. Such lie is a clear indication that he is taking Raub voters for a ride, and ridiculing the intelligence of the voters.
It is not the first time that Ho has misled Raub citizens, he has done it so many times. In 2009, while he was the Chairman for State Environmental and Health Committee, he guaranteed that “should any Cyanide was detected in the open air, the Government would take firm action against the gold miner.” However, when Department of Environment detected Bukit Koman's Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) concentration was at an alarming level of 0.92ppm, the Government misled the public by benchmarking against industrial standard of 4.7ppm and 10ppm to cover up for gold mining company. Ho has thoroughly broken his own promise: he refused to listen to our protest, and he ignored the truth that poisonous air is harming the general public. This is one of the unforgivable lies that Ho has told the people of Raub.
While people in Raub was endangered by the poisonous Cyanide, without any medical proof, Ho accused Bukit Koman people who are suffering from skin disease for using “wrong soaps”, “emotionally unstable” in an attempt to mislead the public, and to deny liability. This is clearly an act to mislead and lie to the people, in order to protect the collusion between government officials and unethical businessmen. This reckless act that totally disregarded the health, safety and well being of the people is so despicable!
And today (refer to Note 1) Hoh Khai Mun promises to set up a gold mine cyanide supervision committee should he is elected . Furthermore, he said that the gold mine will be shut down if it has violated the rules and regulations. What has he done in the pass 5 years while holding post as State Local Government, Environment and Health Committee chairman except empty promise?
We do not trust him at all. We do not want to be cheated for another five years.
We urge that voters in Raub to reject this candidate who is dishonest, and has repeatedly lied to the Raub people – Ho Khai Mun, BN/ MCA Parliamentary Candidate for Raub.
