PENANG Health, Welfare and Caring Society Committee chairman Phee Boon Poh has claimed that a government officer from the National Unity and Integrity Department stopped a Rukun Tetangga (RT) member from inviting him to their function.
He said the RT member was told not to invite him to the function as he was from an opposition party.

Phee said this after launching the Toastmasters International District 51’s 15th annual convention in Penang on Satur-day
