Life without IC for the last 46 years
Jan 1, 2012: A Sipitang housewife, Rose Kalsum Zainal (left) from Kg Mesapol Lama
finds life has been miserable for the last 46 years having to live without
a Malaysia Identity Card. She is no less than a foreigner, even foreigners
many of them are luckier than her got Mykads as soon as they arrived in this
country in particular Sabah, she said.
Rose Kalsum had applied twice to get Malaysian IC, first was in 1978 in
Kota Kinabalu (proof of photocopied documents supplied) but since the IC
wasn’t forthcoming, she then re-applied by registering at the National Registration Department in Sipitang District office in 1990,
since she has been checking with the NRD every few months, the last time
she went to check with NRD Sipitang was September last year where she was
given the same response by the officer that her record of application was
untraceable and not found in the system.
