Sad, that’s what I think.
UNISEL has always been “hot” with so many news and controversies, even since I was there, all the way until now 🙁 .
Even though I’ve left Unisel for over 3 years now, I still receive news about it from my former colleagues. Unfortunately most of the time the news are quite disappointing.
Even the above piece of news, when I heard about it, I thought to myself “Finally?”. I was thinking of the same incident in 2006, but a few hours ago when I actually got to read the news, I was really shocked to find out that the same “misconduct” happened only last year!
You see, in 2006, I heard the same thing, and it was reported. I am not sure how far up the report went to, but eventually nothing really happened – well, at least until the above news came out. But the above news is about what happened last year, and not in 2006!
Though the news above didn’t mention any name, but being an x-Unisel staff, I know very well who that person is. Honestly, I am not surprised when I read the news. This guy is very sleek, and he managed to maneuver his way around so that most of the time whatever damage he had caused, others will get the blame 🙁 . And many good things that happened, he got the credit, despite being done by others! I personally think that he was uncapable to hold such high post in Unisel, but somehow he survived in Unisel (with such high post and high salary) that long!!
When I was still in Unisel, many colleagues tried their best to get me to stay put, but when it (my faculty included) moved to Bestari Jaya, I just couldn’t cope anymore (especially with the travelling).
Unisel has the potential to be great, if only it can rid itself off those hopeless people (also the “kaki bodek”s who are clueless on their roles and duties there. There are still many others who are dedicated and work hard, but most of the times, these people are either overlooked, or over-worked! 🙁
I remember in 2005, a few months before I left it, I was offered to be the dean of the faculty. I thank him for the trust that he had in me, but I politely declined it. I told the VC that I was not good enough to take up the post, and the faculty needed someone more experience and wiser. What happened after that? A junior took it instead. I was hoping that Unisel could get someone suitable from outside. This new dean couldn’t even converse in English, and the university has foreign students!! Some how this person is still the dean! Can’t Unisel find a better person for it? No wonder the quality of the programmes are deteriorating.
Another quite recent news that I heard about the faculty was about the acrreditation process where MQA sent some officers to evaluate the diploma and foundation programmes. One of the officers is actually my friend and last week she told me of her dissatisfaction about the programmes 🙁 . I told her, “Don’t complain to me, I am no longer there!” 🙂

News form Bernama today (16th March):
Reading the above, I supposed the offence was the one that I’ve heard of then, not another one as I was made to understand.
