Kemudi Pays Homage To Former Media Practitioners

KOTA BAHARU, July 17 (Bernama) -- The Kelantan Darul Naim Media Club (Kemudi) Thursday organised a visit to the homes of former media practitioners in appreciation of their contributions to the industry.

Among the homes visited by the club, led by its deputy president, Zabidi Ishar, was that of former Kelantan RTM journalist, Shamsudin Mohamad, 57, at Kampung Baung Bayam here.

Shamsuddin, who became paralysed since four years ago following a high blood pressure, was visibly touched by the visit from Kemudi members, a few of them were his former colleagues.

The club also went to Kampung Tebing Tinggi, Kemumin here to visit the family of former Sinar Harian photographer, Abd Latiff Zakaria, who died three years ago following a heart problem.

The club presented food hamper and cash to Shamsudin and Abd Latiff's family. Meanwhile, Zabidi said the visit was made under the club's "Kembara Ramadan Kemudi" programme.

For this year, we received sponsorship from DiGi Telecommunication, he said, adding that the club planned to organise the programme on a bigger scale next year.
