    The worst thing, she starts out 1 path and twists around it till it gets to another path, absolutely different and unrecognisable.

    We first get something like, "I'll donate. I support the cause, think of the paitents. Where have u heard these 'facts'? (when its blindingly obvious on the papers)"

    Subsequently it changes to things like, "Where can I withdraw my donation?"

    2) You think that ST's article would have been allowed to stand and this thing dragged all the way to court (with the obvious outcome of dirty linen being aired) without the same kind of high-level green light? SPH is Govt owned, don't forget.

    3) The way SPH quoted Mrs Goh and put her unflattering photo (walking beside Durai) almost feels like an "ambush" job, to deliberately reveal her influence in NKF and opinions about the way things there are run.

    Sounds like 1 year after GCT steps down and LSL takes over as PM, the house-cleaning of rotten institutions has begun!


    Khaw Boon Wan today said they would not tear down NKF just to rebuild because things are not "rotten to the core". In order words, only some parts are "rotten". This is the most blatant Govt signal yet, from one of PM Lee's personally appointed Ministers, that the view from the (current) Govt is that there is indeed something rotten in NKF. PM Lee himself, in an soundbite from the US, aired over the radio this morning, said that he would not rule out a board of inquiry. They are serious on this matter
    Conspiracy 101 again? Can't get enuff of it!

    Donors pledge only $6,800 to NKF Cancer Fund during TV show

    SINGAPORE : Donors pledged $6,800 to the NKF Cancer Fund as of 5pm on Thursday. This is a far cry from the previous shows which raised between $600,000 and $900,000.

    Despite the 1-900 numbers being kept opened until 9pm, the NKF Cancer Show 3 did not actively canvas for donations.

    But supporters of NKF turned up in force and packed the TV studio half an hour before the show started at 7.30pm.

    The "Thank You Show" is the first presented, where no funds were actively raised on-air, but fans of foreign artistes like Jeff Zhang were not disappointed.

    In the past few years, NKF has expanded its fund-raising efforts beyond just kidney, to include children and cancer patients. - CNA

    I do support causes, do support the patients. But then i don't trust NKF not to turn their backs to patients, so i decide it's better to donate elsewhere. What's wrong with that?

    as for "We first get something like, "I'll donate. I support the cause, think of the paitents. Where have u heard these 'facts'? (when its blindingly obvious on the papers)", i might have missed it while reading the news. And would like to read it if i had missed it. And what's wrong with it?

    how people choose to view things are different, why force another person to conform?

    I heard Mr. Durai's short interview on newsradio this morning. I thought he didn't sound apologetic at all - then again, why should he be? He was only earning peanuts.

And given his intelligent and motivation, I'm sure he definitely can earn much more than what he got from NKF for the last 10 years if he had remained as a lawyer.

    Nevertheless, TTD has resigned and I won't want to say further on this unfortunate NKF's saga.

    Whoever wanna flame me for what I said, go ahead. I couldn't bother more.
    doubt anyone will flame u.

    if TTD stays as a lawyer,
    he would be providing a service that clients' after.
    he choose to be CEO of a VWO,
    a different ballpark altogether n expects the same treatment,
    i both perks and privacy,
    that, is not acceptable.

    cheers to u for being a volunteer!!!

    No prizes to guess where the $6,800 comes from.

    And of cos, I'd love to be in the studio... but only if I'm paid peanuts.

    "First, the business relationships Mr Durai had with NKF board member Ms Matilda Chua.

    These were through two companies - Proton Web Solutions, a call centre operations based in India, which NKF had contracted its tele-marketing work to - and Global Net, in which Mr Durai himself had a stake.

    Mr Durai also said he had held several directorships in addition to his work as CEO of the NKF.

    Asked if he had informed the NKF Board of these appointments, he replied that it was not consequential and the Board gave him the liberty to do so."

    No, no... There's absolutely no sin in giving ppl the freedom to choose how to view things.

    But its simply.... entertaining to see stuff like dat. All the twists and turns.... exercising ur brain and eye power to 100% once in a while is really good exercise. My headache for the past week had never been worst

    I am glad everyone has their own views, and have the chance to have their own say. I am also glad that i had provided so much entertainment for some people. Maybe i am wrong, just for trusting myself to have ability to stand by what i would say.

    It has been a great pleasure discussing on this topic.
    I don't think i want to comment on this issue anymore.

    Thank u for hearing me.

    But now, i don't trust NKF anymore.
    BTW what are the steps to get donations back?
    Are you fan of Durai?

    The reason that public don't trust NFK anymore is because Durai and Board!

    You're the opposite..

    This is about democracy. As student (or someone) have mentioned, democracy is not about right or wrong, its about majority. Maybe we are all wrong and you are right. Wouldn't you say that is possible? Please don't go. We haven't reached page 100 yet. And please appreciate that what I'm trying to do is what the NFK have never done for Mr. Durai. We are all friends here. Please stay.

    Default A plea

    Dear Readers,

    We are all upset. Just a note though. I do pity the front line staff of NKF to be the receiving of public anger. I saw in on TV on their plight. I think they will suffer from distress, public embarassment and other emotionally related issues. They did not have a role in the decision making of the board nor the CEO.

    As we care, we will channel the anger, frustration and feedback at the source of the issue, right?

    Have a nice day.

    How in the world can they as an organization explain how matters of finance have been controlled by the top man and the BOD who approved of it in the first place? Besides, they have not been transparent over the years. There's a reason why such expenditures have been a closely guarded secret all this time -- most will only hear rumours, those who really know kinda sealed their lips or something.
