Teenager Throw Books In The River, KASA Invited Him To Be Part of ‘Friends of River Malaysia’
Recently, there has been a video that went viral showing a teenager who decided to throw away all of his revision books and also revision papers into the river right after he finished his Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) Examination. This video has received a lot of backlash from a lot of netizens. However, the Ministry of Environment and Water (KASA) has taken a different approach for this particular student.
In a Facebook post of the KASA page, they have invited this student who became viral recently to join Friends of River Malaysia (Sahabat Sungai Malaysia).
According to the Facebook post, KASA has stated that they asked the cooperation of people who knew the student to quickly contact the ministry. They said, “If anyone knows this brother, KASA would like to invite this brother to become a member of Friends of River Malaysia”.
They also added, “We want to invite him to launch a river cleaning program nationwide in conjunction with World Water Day on March 22. God willing, through the education and support of the community, not only this younger brother, but many others will be more sensitive about the cleanliness of the river”.
Netizens agree with the steps taken by the Ministry of Environment and Water against the teenager. According to netizens, the move indirectly teaches the people in the country to love the environment.
Malaysia Remembers MH370
KUALA LUMPUR, March 8 — Today, March 8, marks the 7th anniversary of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines’ flight MH370 that went missing under mysterious circumstances while enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
How and why a sophisticated Boeing 777 carrying 227 passengers of different nationalities and 12 crew vanished from the radar screen without a trace remains an enigma till today, with the extensive search never seen before in aviation history.
In remembering the ill-fated flight, Bernama revisited the incident and interviewed some of the next-of-kin in Malaysia who find the lack of closure on the episode to be disappointing.
“I feel exactly like how it had been seven years ago when I was 17, …things are pretty much the same but we are doing ok,” said the daughter Andrew Nari, the chief steward on the ill-fated flight, to Bernama.
The brother-in-law of Goh Sock Lay, chief stewardess on board, told Bernama that the family did not want to talk about the incident as they felt sad each time they recalled the tragedy.
Family members of passengers also have moved on and felt there is nothing more to talk about the tragedy.
Even the conspiracy theories have abated. The initial theories, such as hijacking and diversion of the plane to US Military base on the Diego Garcia atoll, seizure of control of the aircraft from the pilots via remote methods, and catastrophic systems or airframe failure – are all have yet to be proven.
However, the aircraft’s flaperon that washed up on the beach on Reunion Island a year later pointed to the fact that the Indian Ocean is the final resting place of flight MH370. However, there is no way to pinpoint the exact resting place of the aircraft in the vast ocean.
Australia, China, and Malaysia ended a fruitless US150 million search across a 120,000 square-kilometre area in the Indian Ocean in 2017. Subsequently, Houston-based group Ocean Infinity also failed to locate the aircraft and its search ended in 2018.
The Malaysian Transport Ministry had said that it has yet to receive any credible evidence to initiate a new search. Till the aircraft is found and the mystery surrounding its disappearance is deciphered, the MH370 call sign will remain an enduring mystery of aviation.
