I commend Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s daughter, Najwa Mahjaddin for her filial piety for her song “After the Rain” to give support to her father in his political travails after being sacked as Deputy Prime Minister.
This is the lyrics of her song:
We may all fall down, but we all get up.
Hold your head up, Malaysia.. after the rain comes the sun.
When life gets cold and skies aren’t blue, you’re not alone, I’m here for you.
My brothers and sisters, we’ll see you through.
These are the times we must get through, courage and wisdom must live in you.
The way of our future lies in you.
From the rising of the sun, together
we are one, we are stronger forever.
Most touching, especially the part pledging the solidarity and loyalty of the siblings to Muhyiddin’s trials and tribulations.
My only comment is that while it is most commendable for Najwa to pledge solidarity and loyalty of her siblings to their father in whatever temporary tests and troubles he has to go through, the time has come for a vaster canvas of life and nation, to go beyond giving heart and courage to one person but to think of what can be done by every patriotic Malaysian to go beyond individual self or party and to save Malaysia and her people from unjust, inequitable and oppressive policies.
Malaysians are facing, not just the rain, but an approaching storm which may be more devastating than previous storms which the country has gone through in the past 58 years of nation-building.
How great if Najwa could compose and sing a song dedicated to all Malaysians to prepare them for the approaching storm.
The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak will come to JB on Sunday to officiate the UMNO Pasir Gudang division meeting.
Johor Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin, has pledged to be “a good host’ when Najib officiates his Pasir Gudang UMNO divisional meeting but declared that he would nonetheless raise issues which party grassroots wanted UMNO leaders to be accountable and responsible for, the most conspicuous case being the turns and twists by Ministers and top government officials to escape liability for the scandals of 1MDB and RM2.6 billion in Najib’s bank accounts.
This morning there is another headline “We’re not targetting MACC”, says the police.
The Bukit Aman claims has little credibility, for Malaysians are very concerned by the developments of the past few days with police arrests of MACC officials – producing a spectre of a full-scale “war in a very fractured government.
What Malaysians want is to get to the bottom of the RM42 billon 1MDB scandal and the other scandal of RM2.6 billion deposited into the personal accounts of the Prime Minister before the 13th General Election, and not a “war” within a fractured government over the scandals involving the higher levels of government.
Public confidence in the government will be irreparably damaged if this “war” inside a very fractured government is not stopped immediately, and I would like to ask Najib why is he doing nothing to restore a unity of purpose concerning all governments machineries.
