As Malaysians, it is very difficult not to be affected by the missing MH370 Malaysia Airlines jetliner.
This is one mystery which has baffled Malaysians from all walks of life since it went missing on March 8th. It can be said that those who are directly affected to those who aren’t are very concerned and praying and hoping for the safe return of the crew and passengers of the ill-fated plane.
While speculations, rumours and news are circulating around cyberspace, media and just about any other possible avenues, a more pressing issue needs to be addressed. Who should be responsible for this?
While it is true that pointing fingers might not be right at this moment, but many Malaysians have gotten very tired of the way the leaders are handling the crisis. From the director-general of the DCA (Department of Civil Aviation) to the leaders who seemed to be ‘experts’ in the areas and those who are in power to those who are ‘running the show’, the daily press conferences (which has little or no updates) have gotten really lethargic and somehow irrelevant.
As Malaysians, the way the leaders are handling the crisis showed a lot of incompetence, irrelevance and ignorance. Each day since the aircraft went missing, someone finds something and these so-called leaders go about validating the news which is something that can be done by just about anyone. Perhaps it is time for someone with credentials and good crisis-management skills to take over.
