The Problems Surrounding ePemula

Frustrated students have taken to social media to complain about ePemula, an initiative under Budget 2022 that aims to ease the financial burden of youths. First, we discuss the complaints that have plagued the launch of ePemula, and what could have been done better. Then, since this was meant as a way to offer financial support to young Malaysians, we dissect what this group actually needs right now.
