Caring Melaka folk offer jobs and accommodation to homeless former guard

MELAKA: Dozens of offers for jobs and accommodation have come pouring in for former security guard Mohd Zahari Rahman after his plight of having to beg to make ends meet was highlighted in The Star.

The offers came from both state agencies and private companies on Tuesday (June 15).

A logistics company from Taman Angkasa Nuri here offered Mohd Zahari a position as logistics assistant.

The company's managing director G. Sivarajan said he will take care of Mohd Zahari's accommodation as well as his meals.

Melaka Socso was also among the earliest to offer help.

Kota Laksamana assemblyman Low Chee Leong, who went to look for Mohd Zahari in the morning, was told he was no longer at his usual spot.

"Locals told me that someone had offered him a job and took him along with them this (Tuesday) morning," he said.

Mohd Zahari was spotted sitting on a pavement and begging for money along Jalan Tun Ali here recently.

The 33-year-old claimed he had no choice but to do so after losing his job as a security guard when his company wound up due to the pandemic.

Mohd Zahari, a bachelor, said he was a slow learner and lived at a hostel in his workplace until he lost his job.
