(Versi BM)

There are five reasons why Zahid Hamidi should step down as UMNO President.

First, all political parties in the next 15th General Election should condemn the RM50 billion 1MDB financial scandal and make the saving of Malaysia from becoming a kleptocracy a main plank of their election pledges. Read the rest of this entry »

Zahid Hamidi should step down as UMNO President as he is unable for a month to clear himself of major responsibility for the RM9 billion littoral combatant ships (LCS) scandal and, even worse, clear Najib Razak as the biggest “shark’ in the scandal

(Versi BM)

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi should step down as UMNO President as he is unable for a month to clear himself of major responsibility for the RM9 billion littoral combatant ships (LCS) scandal, and even worse, clear Najib Razak as the biggest “shark” in the scandal.

A month ago, Zahid was foolish to deny that he was responsible for the RM9 billion LCS scandal. Read the rest of this entry »

Zahid’s failure to be a witness in Najib Razak’s SRC International trial to testify that he had met the Arab family who donated cash into Najib’s accounts supports the stand of nine judges that Najib’s Arab donation defence was “untenable” and “unsustainable”

(Versi BM)

UMNO President Zahid Hamidi’s failure to be a witness in former Prime Minister Najib Razak’s SRC International trial to testify that he had met the Arab family who donated cash into Najib’s accounts supports the stand of nine Malaysian judges that Najib’s Arab donation defence was “untenable” and “unsustainable”.

So far, apart from Zahid, nobody has met physically the mysterious Arab donor as even the delegation the then Attorney-General, Apandi Ali sent to Riyadh in 2015 had failed to meet the mysterious and fabled Arab donor.

Can Zahid give a single instance that Najib’s SRC International case is cited in Commonwealth nations as an unfair trial as it is more than one week since Najib was sent to jail

(Versi BM)

Can the UMNO President, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, give a single instance that Najib Razak’s SRC International case is cited in the Commonwealth nations as an unfair trial as it is more than one week since Najib was sent to jail to begin his 12-year imprisonment sentence.

Zahid made this reference in his special address to UMNO delegates last Saturday. Read the rest of this entry »

A new chance for a national reset to return to the original nation-building principles and policies in the Constitution and Rukun Negara to make Malaysia a world-class great nation

(Versi BM)

Malaysia is 65 years old – at a critical point whether we continue to regress and lose out to more and more countries or we bestir ourselves in a national reset to become a world-class great nation.

The jailing of a former Prime Minister is heart-breaking, but it a clear sign that Malaysia can move forward to a national reset and return to the original nation-building principles and policies in the Constitution and Rukun Negara to become a world-class great nation.

Zahid should explain why he has not told the full story to UMNO leaders and members the main role played by him and Najib in the RM9 billion LCS scandal?

(Versi BM)

The UMNO President, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi should explain why he has not told the full story to UMNO leaders and members the main role played by him and Najib Razak in the RM9 billion littoral combatant ships (LCS) scandal – the new 1MDB scandal of Malaysia?

I agree with the DAP National Publicity Secretary and MP for Kulai, Teo Nie Ching, that former Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Najib Razak and Zahid, as the Defence Minister at the time, cannot deny responsibility for the LCS scandal. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Najib prepared to take an oath that he has nothing to do with the RM9 billion littoral combatant ship (LCS) scandal?

(Versi BM)

Former Prime Minister Najib Razak has lapsed into silence on the RM9 billion littoral combatant ship (LCS) scandal after he realised that he had made a strategic mistake by being in the forefront in the first week the Public Accounts Committee report on the LCS scandal was tabled in Parliament on August 4, 2022.

He was even more outspoken than the current Defence Minister, Hishammuddin Hussein and the Defence Minister when the disastrous RM9 billion LCS procurement was decided upon in 2011 – Ahmad Zahid Hamidi the current UMNO President. Read the rest of this entry »

Why are UMNO and BN leaders completely unconcerned about the RM9 billion LCS scandal, which turned a “dream project” into a national nightmare?

(Versi BM)

UMNO has urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AG) to respond to a document purported to be the leaked MACC investigation paper on the judge who had convicted former Prime Minister Najib Razak.

According to the UMNO Secretary-General Ahmad Maslan, the document had been circulating online and is an offence under Section 220 of the Penal Code.

Thanks to Najib, Malaysia is even losing out to Egypt which has two Gowind LCS in operation although Egypt was later than Malaysia in contracting for the Gowind LCS

(Versi BM)

Thanks to Najib Razak, the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia who caused national infamy for Malaysia to be regarded worldwide as a kleptocracy, Malaysia is even losing out to Egypt which has two Gowind LCS in operation although Egypt was later than Malaysia in deciding to buy the Gowind LCS.

Malaysia’s decision to buy the six Gowind LCS was made as far back as 2011 although the contract was delayed and signed only in 2014, but Egypt, which signed a one billion Euro contract to buy four Gowind LCS in 2014, has now two Gowind LCS in operation. Read the rest of this entry »

Was Najib the “hidden hand” behind the RM9 billion LCS scandal?

(Versi BM)

There is one question swirling in the minds of thinking Malaysians in the past week since the tabling of the explosive report of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on the RM9 billion Littoral Combatant Ship (LCS) Scandal: – whether Najib Razak was the “hidden hand” behind the mega scandal.

Without reading and understanding the PAC report, which is a horror story of corruption, fraud, abuse of power, mismanagement and criminality in the public service, Najib had been very active on his Facebook in the past week to defend the RM9 billion LCS scandal and even to blame the Pakatan Harapan for the scandal. – which only reinforced the question.

Zahid should not deny the undeniable and should explain why as Defence Minister in July 2011, he overturned the decision as recommended by the Navy to contract the six Dutch-made Sigma LCS and chose the Scorpene manufacturer’s six French-made Gowind LCS within three days without consulting the Navy, the end-user?

(Versi BM)

UMNO President Ahmad Zahid Hamidi should not deny the undeniable but should explain why as Defence Minister in July 2011, he overturned the decision as recommended by the Navy to contract six Dutch-made Sigma Littoral Combatant Shiupt (LCS) and chose the Scorpene manufacturer’s six French-made Gowind LCS within three days without consulting the Navy, the end-user.

It is as clear as daylight that Zahid is responsible for the RM9 billion LCS scandal, and he should explain instead why he took three days on July 11, 2011 to overturn the Ministry of Defence decision of May 26, 2011 to contract the Sigma LCS and to go instead for the Gowind LCS, without first referring the matter to the Navy.

Is Zahid nuts?

The question everyone is asking after the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi’s speech at the Ipoh Barat UMNO Division yesterday is: “Is Zahid nuts?”

Zahid was very macho and exclaimed that UMNO’s opponents will have to cross the dead bodies of its party members if they want to try and dissolve the party.

In my 53 years in politics, which involved two imprisonment under the Internal Security Act, dragged to court for a variety of charges including under the Official Secrets Acts, and being the victim of the worst and longest, and continuing, demonization campaign against any politician in the nation’s history, the thought of the dissolution of UMNO had never crossed my mind.

In fact, the thought of dissolution of other political parties, like MCA, MIC and Gerakan, had never entered my mind.

If I had never entertained the thought of the dissolution of marginal parties like MCA, MIC or Gerakan, why should I have thought about the dissolution of UMNO?

Why am I saying these things?

Very simple. Zahid and other proponents of klepto-theocracy had accused Mahathir of being my stooge and that I am the puppet-master. Read the rest of this entry »

Is UMNO under Zahid prepared to declare that klepto-theocracy or the misuse of Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehood is totally against the Malaysian Dream to unite Malaysians to build a top world-class nation respected and admired by the world?

UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi has become a classic case of a political leader whose statements frequently boomerang on him, raising the question posed by Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad about UMNO leaders becoming “dumb and dumber” over the years.

His latest and second smacking of PKR President, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim again had this boomerang effect on himself.

Zahid said UMNO rejects any offer to co-operate with Anwar as long as he is in “cahoots” with DAP.

Zahid may suffer from short memory.

It was only a week ago that Zahid insinuated that the Prime Minister and Bersatu President Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was a stooge of DAP in saying that UMNO practised a culture of becoming “dumb and dumber”.

I must be a Master Machiavelli to be pulling the strings on two stooges, Mahahthir and Anwar, and going by this logic, Zahid must refuse to have anything to do with both of them.

However, PAS President, Haji Hadi Awang said yesterday that his party will work to keep Mahathir as Prime Minister for the full term, denying any handover of power to Anwar as agreed by the Pakatan Harapan consensus in January 2018. Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks again to Zahid for latest proof of the meaning of “klepto-theocracy” – the political alliance based on misuse of Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods

I must thank the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi for the latest proof of the meaning of “klepto-theocracy” – the political alliance based on misuse of Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods.

After the UMNO Supreme Council meeting yesterday, Zahid said that UMNO will not “open the door” of negotiation and co-operation with any party that has a relationship with DAP.

He said: “There will be no negotiation any party in the Pakatan Harapan coalition as long as they share the power with DAP.”

The question Zahid should ask is who will co-operate with a party which is headed by a President who is making history in having a total of 87 criminal charges related to corruption?

Or the further question, who will co-operate with a political coalition whose advisor was the person who had brought infamy, ignominy and iniquity to Malaysia because of the international 1MDB scandal, condemned in an international conference by the US Attorney-General as “kleptocracy at its worst” and who is on trial for 42 criminal charges relating to corruption, abuse of power and money-laundering?

Thanks to Zahid for latest proof of the toxic politics of lies, falsehoods, race and religion to incite fear, suspicion, distrust and hatred among Malaysians in the script of klepto-theocracy, even resorting to the most stupidest of lies and falsehoods

I thank the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi for providing the latest proof of the toxic politics of lies, falsehoods, race and religion to incite fear, suspicion, distrust and hatred among Malaysians in the script of klepto-theocracy, even resorting to the most stupidest of lies and falsehoods.

I must confess that I was taken aback by Zahid’s rejoinder to Bersatu Chairman Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s claim that UMNO practised a culture of becoming “dumb and dumber”, with Zahid’s assertion that Mahathir was being “fooled”: by the DAP.

Was Zahid suggesting that Mahathir was obeying a DAP directive when addressing 1,215 delegates of Bersatu’s Extraordinary Gneeral Meeting on Saturday, when Mahathir advised Bersatu to avoid being caught in a cycle of self-serving leaders who will prevent others with more capability to rise and succeed them as happened to UMNOI?

Was Zahid saying that Mahathir’s reason for UMNO’s eventual downfall when the people moved to reject self-serving leaders was the invention and creation of DAP, and that Mahathir did not have the IQ to think and analyse things on his own?

Mahathir had said: “In order to preserve his position, an Umno branch chief is not keen to allow others who are more capable to be members. The only ones who can join are those dumber than him. Read the rest of this entry »

Why the tape recording of the Mahathir-Zahid meeting in 2015 has yet to be publicly played?

With the velocity of the Mahathir-Zahid spat showing no let-up, but increasing in intensity with each passing day in the past week since it was triggered by the Deputy Prime Minister and Acting UMNO Deputy President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi, an UMNO Johore State Assemblyman, Tengku Putra Haron Aminurrashid Jumat has warned against playing “strip poker” with Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

I do not know what is this UMNO “strip poker” but as is customary wont in UMNO politics nowadays, the DAP is always accused of either masterminding or capitalizing from these UMNO-related political gymnastics or acrobatics. Read the rest of this entry »

14th General Election is around the corner and UMNO faces the possibility of historic triple losses in next polls

The 14th General Election is around the corner.

Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi, let slip this possibility when he spoke at the Merbok UMNO AGM in Sungai Petani last night and continued the Zahid-Mahathir spat started by the Deputy Prime Minister striking the first blow by taking a dig at the 92-year-old’s Indian heritage.

Zahid told.Umno Merbok to hold on to the Merbok parliamentary and Tanjung Dawai state seats and reclaim the Bukit Selambau state seat if they wished to enjoy rewards.

He said: “I have heard requests for allocations for a hostel, canteen and water pipe upgrade here. I promise to return in six months with gifts if you can retain Merbok and Tanjung Dawai and take back Bukit Selambau.

“In GE11, we made a clean sweep of all three but in GE12, we lost all three seats and the state of Kedah along with that. Don’t let it happen again.”

This would mean that the 14th General Election would be all over in six months’ time, pointing to general polls this year rather than next year. Read the rest of this entry »
