Chief Secretary to the Government Samsudin Osman protested that civil servants should not be singled out for anti-corruption drive on corruption. This appeared in the mass media, including malaysiakini too on Dec 9. He hinted that everyone has a role to play in this battle as well.

A day later, Suaram director Dr Kua Kia Soong lamented that Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has not shown the leadership and determination to eradicate this social cancer contrary to his earlier promises.

The message is fairly clear in that everyone wants to see the eradication of corruption, but nobody seems to know the best ways of doing so, not even the prime minister.
