Programme to rehabilitate Mat Rempit

The Government will embark on a new programme to rehabilitate illegal motorcyle racers or Mat Rempit to turn them into useful members of society instead of simply meting out punishment against them, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Najib said the pilot project to be launched next January as part of the Permata Negara programme.

He said the Government decided to use the softer approach after finding that putting the youths behind bars for “minor offences” had the potential of making the problem worse.

The aim is to find ways to rehabilitate them so they can become useful and successful members of the public.

The programme will focus on helping the Rempits improve their abilities in terms of leadership skills, social interaction, self-empowerment.

I talk to various people at the coffeeshop and there were many suggestions on how to improve and utilise the energies of the Rempits, such as:

(1) Train them and elect them to be traffic policemen

(2) Train them to be bank managers or cashiers.

(3) Train them to be Formula 1 drivers so that they can form the team to manage 1Malaysia Formula 1 Lotus Team

(4) Appoint them as head of Rela so that they can volunteer their energy to reduce crime

(5) Train them to be "Rossi" and get Fernandes to form a Motorcycle Racing Team to take part in World GP races.

(6) Appoint them as voluntary officers to assist MACC and the High Courts as these departments are short of staff.

(7) Assign them to JKR to supervise the projects.

Someone even suggested to appoint them as senators but I think they are not ready for such tasks.

Any idea how much money has been allocated for the project?

Maverick SM said...

Singa,

I think not much; maybe slightly less than $500m

Poon Wei said...

what about giving them a purpose in life?

Singam said...

Wah, only 500m ah? Like that, 10% won't get much! :-(

Must plan how to overrun budget.

Speechless.

Malaysia government NEVER look into the root of the cause. Always come with creative way to create more problem to siphon the country money.

It is all because we have a SNAFU social system and economy structure, and a collapsing culture value.

Malaysia Boleh.
