Rasuah Busters is taking an aggressive approach in spreading its anti-corruption message to young voters in Melaka.

The response has been overwhelming.

Many, especially youngsters, have been showing support and praising the team's effort in educating the public on money politics.

The team has also been giving out free face-masks as an effort to promote public safety during the state elections amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Placards with the words "Rasuah Busters" were given to the voters to instill the spirit to fight against corruption and abuse power as the campaign period begins.

Khairunnisa Samat, 29, said the team's actions to go head on and reach the community about their message were commendable.

She said not many people were willing to engage the public and discuss about the issue, which has been a unspoken practice for so long.

"Having a casual conversation and at the same time reminding the people about the dangers of bribery is a good and effective approach especially during the election.
