Man hopes son will get MyKad soon


A widower in Ulu Tiram, Johor, urged the authorities to reconsider his son’s citizenship status so that it does not affect his education, Makkal Osai reported.

The father, who was identified as Anbarasu, said he and his late wife were both Malaysian citizens. His wife died shortly after their son was born 12 years ago.

Despite numerous applications submitted to the National Registration Department, he said they were asked to wait for a decision by the Home Ministry.

In the meantime, the family had to pay RM120 a year for the boy to attend primary school and will need to pay RM240 per year for the secondary school term from next year.

The father said he was worried about his son’s future if he is unable to obtain a MyKad.
