Say What? Communications And Multimedia Ministry Deny Discussions On Online Shopping Fee
Well, well, well...

U-turns, roundabouts, jumps and flips. 

It's something that most Malaysians are used to when it comes to the people up top. 

And speaking of U-turns, remember how the Communications and Multimedia deputy minister said that they were thinking of imposing an additional fee for online purchases soon?



Well, now the ministry is refuting it. 

Miscommunication in the communications ministry?

According to Malay Mail, the ministry denied that discussions were ongoing on the matter via a statement.

“With reference to the statement made yesterday, September 8, 2020, in Kelantan, KKMM would like to clarify that there have been no discussions about adding an extra service charge for purchases between RM200 and RM1,000 and 20 sen more for every subsequent RM1,000 for purchases on online platforms."

Earlier, the ministry's deputy minister Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin had commented that they were planning to impose the additional fee to raise a special fund for the B40 group and improve communications infrastructure in rural areas.

What's happening?

He had actually even commented that the ministry planned to table the matter in Parliament soon. 

So if it was a misquoted statement, something really must be amiss at the ministry.

Did he dream it all up? Hmmmmmmmm
