NKF Scandal

The much anticipated audit report by independent accounting firm KPMG was finally revealed to the public during a press conference held jointly by the new NKF board and KPMG. If you thought you have heard the worst of the scandal, wait till you plough through the 300-plus pages of report detailing every sordid activities that went behind the public’s and donors’ back during the past few years.

One of the biggest bombshells dropped during the press conference was the revelation that for every dollar donated to the old NKF, only 10 fucking cent actually went towards subsidising the patients’ dialysis treatments. Damn cheebye right.

This misleading of stats is only the tip of the iceberg. Besides grossly inflating the numbers of patients in its care as well as the cost incurred in the process, the reports also revealed that the running of the old NKF seems to resemble that of an imperial court in ancient China with much authority and clout accorded to the emperor which in this case is ex-CEO Mr TT Durai. There were no accountability with regards to any malpractices or misuse of public’s funds. Bonuses and pay increments to cronies were flagrantly approved with no sign of the slightest protest or questioning from the inept Board of Directors. It would certainly appear-based on the report, that large chunks of lavish entitlements and benefits were enjoyed only by a small circle of people consisting of Senior managements, “special friends” of the old NKF and the entire board of directors.

The manipulation and decieving ploys employed by the old NKF certainly did not go down well with Singaporeans, with a few baying for their bloods. Said Ah Heng, a “financial advisor” with financial firm Geylang 361, “Nabeh phua cheebye, nabeh phua cheebye, NABEH PHUA CHEEBYE UNDERSTAND! Ah Neh don’t let me or my brudders see you in Geylang otherwise we will Ka-chaaaa your lan jiao and feed it to bobby! All my brudders are on standby for any sightings of you cheebye!”

As the full extent of the nefarious dealings of the old NKF become clearer, former cronies and past associates have started acting blur and pushing responsibilities to each other in an attempt to shield themselves from any legal proceedings that might arises, with crony #1 Richard Yong, former chairman of the old NKF firing the first salvo. Mr Yong, thinking he could avoid any possible prosecution from the authorities by implicating SM Goh’s wife, indicated that Mrs Goh had all along known and had endorsed the salary of former CEO Mr TT Durai without voicing any concerns during her stint as Patron of NKF. He said that had she done so, the board would have seriously consider her opinions and make the necessary amendments.
However when asked for her clarification to that, Mrs Goh only quipped “Durai who?”
Smart bitch.

agu agu agu. Gu your head understand!

More finger-pointing followed with Mr Durai swiftly shifting blames and responsibilties to his ex-colleagues when he stand accused for the botched contracts with Forte Systems and Protonweb, worth a total $7.5 million. He attributed the mistakes to the deputy head of the technology department, crony #2 Mr Jayaraman and crony #3 Mr Alwyn Lim, vice-chairman of the old NKF. Not to be outdone, Mr Jayaraman and Mr Alwyn promptly blamed Mutu and Hock San for their lapse in judgements on both of these instances, who by the way, are cleaners at NKF.

Within the confine of the NKF building in Kim Keat road, there were also feelings of bewilderment, anger and a sense of betrayal by NKF staff when presented with details of the report on Monday. The mood was in much contrast to the previous one in July. Then, mobs of NKF staff were seen sobbing openly as they bade farewell to their former boss without even realising that their boss has taken them on a ride of a lifetime at their own expense. Regrets and disappointments were the words uttered most often by the staff when asked about their views on the matter.

Meanwhile, at a just concluded press conference held to present their views on the NKF scandal, Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan took offence with criticisms from the media when they suggested that the Ministry has been negligent in discharging its duties. This was due to the fact that the Ministry of Health had failed to act on the NKF despite receiving tip-offs from various anonymous sources over the years. To that accusation, Mr Khaw replied defiantly,” It’s anonymous what!”
But he later apologised for his outburst and promised to clean up whatever there’s need to be clean and to undertake several drastic measures in the next three months so that the public’s confidence towards the new NKF and other charity boards could be restored.
As more dirts are dug up by the Commercial Affairs Division and Corrupt Practice Investigation Bureau over the next few days, we can be sure that the angry feelings on the ground would most likely swelled and retaliation in the form of cancelled donations would most certainly be directed against the new NKF. The repercussion of this fall out unfortunately would be borne by the hundreds of kidney patients who are but mere helpless victims caught up in this needless debacle.

This has been a report undertaken by CheekyByNature’s special project desk.
