Up close and personal with MoHA

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) Open Day is an open avenue for the public to learn about the functions, roles and responsibilities of the ministry’s departments, said Minister of Home Affairs Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Ahmaddin bin Haji Abdul Rahman in a speech  yesterday.

The three-day open day will continue until tomorrow, from 8am to 4.30pm at the multi-purpose hall of the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) at Old Airport, Berakas.

Yesterday, the Strategic Plan of the MoHA for 2023-2027 and product catalogue named ‘Insaf’ by the Prisons Department were launched, along with a demonstration by the FRD on rescuing a man trying to commit suicide and a rescue mission by the Bukit Saeh crew involving an injured hiker.

The open day is also an opportunity for the ministry to disseminate the latest information such as new developments in delivering services, initiatives including the use of information technology, and enforced acts and regulations.

In addition, the public can also submit suggestions and questions related to the services provided, including the roles and responsibilities at the grassroots level. Talks are held throughout the three-day event. – Azlan Othman
