Social media has been unforgiving recently over an apparent act of threatening done by several SAF commanders in army camps, forcing NS personnel to download the government’s (actually Ministry of Home Affairs’s) app called SG Secure, available on the Apple and Android platforms.
The app’s said purpose was to disseminate timely information with regards to national security and/or terrorism in Singapore. However, from the reviews (mostly 1-star, given by the ‘forced’ NS personnel), it seems the app has been misused as some kind of alternative propaganda channel, alerting users to frequent non-emergency updates from Channel NewsAsia.
Lengths the PAP government can go to to extend their ‘outreach’.
Some Singaporeans have even called the country ‘a f**king joke’, which is difficult to deny.
