Despite Zaiton's paranoia, insider dare confirmed Najib's TH revelation as true

Zakhir Mohamed in a selfie with Hizamuddin Jamalluddin of TH

The day Lembaga Tabung Haji had to admit a revelation Dato Najib made of the institution still on a sell down mode instead of making fresh new investment, Hizamuddin Jamalluddin, a blue eye boy of Dato Zaiton Hassan was seen doing a selfie with blogger Zakhir Mohamed on his FB.

Hizamuddin became a blue eye willing to "fix" his colleagues with false report, in which it actually save him instead, and was tipped as a possible CEO candidate from inside.

He questioned why a character by the name of Mao "bantai" him. It is quite a typical denial or in-denial reaction of guilt.

If not, why would he expect the Mao character has ulterior motivation? Does it occur to him, ethics, morality and comradeship remain as relevant as ever?

Halim Saad questioned why PLUS debt not paid?


If three is a crowd, four is a party.

It came to the attention of this blogger that the pioneer of PLUS, Tan Sri Halim Saad with a Dato Wong Gian Kui entered a bid for PLUS.

The offer is for Khazanah's 51% stake for RM5.3 billion and came with 25% discount on toll rates. The discount is not the interesting part of the offer. For comparison, Guan Eng announced an 18% discount during Budget 2020 and MAJU offered a higher 36% discount.

The issues raised against Khazanah in the letter of offer relate to PLUS debt status.

MUSICAL INTERLUDE: Blackbird

"You were only waiting for this moment ....
... to arise ...
... to be free ....
The Beatles (1968)          

From HPU to Kongres Maruah Melayu, Budget 2020, corporate revelations, Lim Guan Eng and DAP, lots of issues to write. Unfortunately, need a cerebral, spinal and pectoral break to observe and wait for events to unfold..

The moments are happening. Events unfolding.

Another political Malay group launched


Parti Bumiputera Perkasa Malaysia (PUTRA) held a launching ceremony at the Kelab Sultan Sulaiman fields yesterday.

There were 5,000 white chairs laid out on the field and by the look, it may have been filled up with yellow colours looking well with the city skyline.

The timing of their launch is exactly two weeks after the Himpunan Perpaduan Ummah (#HPU914), which culminated into signing of the Piagam Muafakat National between UMNO and PAS to end decades of political animosity.

Naturally, there were critics coming from UMNO and maybe PAS members, and supporters, that the launch of yet another Malay, Muslim based political party will further divide the already politically divided Malay votes.

The general belief is it will further weaken the Malay majority presence and bargaining power in government.

Appeal Court judge insulted Islam and Sultan


There was a decision made by the Court of Appeal yesterday against Selangor religious authorities in relation to the publication of Irshad Manji's book published by a company owned by Dato Zaid Ibrahim's son.

The Court of Appeal judge Umi Kalthum Abdul Majid, who chaired a three member bench with other members, Hasnah Mohamed Hashim and Suraya Othman uttered an insulting words against Islam and indirectly, state sovereign, the Sultan of Selangor.

The report by FMT mentioned:
"The appeal is allowed in part,” Umi said, adding that the conduct of the state religious authorities would lead to the “law of jungle and rule by ulama”.
According to lawyers contacted, Judges have the discretion to make any comments in court. However, are they not bound by any form of ethical code for judges, or the least, decent common courtesy in their conduct in court?

Local media "lembab" coverage of US Mail pullout plan


Though our posting "US withdrawal from global mail could cripple local logistics" two days ago did not got much hits, it may have drew out an official statement from Pos Malaysia.

That is what this blogger wish to believe since the url was messaged to a key corporate personality behind Pos. 

It took a statement by Pos to alert mainstream media and got them to report on the USPS intention to pullout yesterday. That is how hopeless local media's new hound are.

Foreign media have been reporting for months on the possibility of USPS pulling out from Universal Postal Union (UPU).

It is good that they finally responded after a blogger made a posting.

However, by the time local media covered this news with critical implication on local logistics, UPU agreed to a compromise to prevent US from pulling out.

For readers, forget the kaki bodek mainstream media.

Zeti took 26 days to deny, how many days to response on Ecotive?


The PNB announcement on the appointment of Jalil Rashid as PNB CEO was made on August 29th, 2019. Subsequently, Tun Dr Mahathir said he was not informed of the appointment. Then, it was  complete silence from PNB Chairman, Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz.

One can hear the pin drop at the Chairman office at PNB headquarter.

Finally after 26 days, Zeti issued a denial, After so long, it hardly said anything but the usual corporate communication bullshit of claiming they followed procedure. There was hardly any meat.

If they did follow procedure, why was Mahathir not in the know (video HERE) as it is not customary of him to not know of important appointments? Of all person, Zeti would be the last person not to know Mahathir expect to be kept abreast? Even any appointments to be made by Dato Paduka Mukhriz or Dato Seri Faizal Azumu within their respective state still need his prior approval!

Is Zeti confirming the rumour Mahathir is beginning to show early signs of senility or dementia to forget and as one PPBM MP said, he is on remote memory? 

So come out with it.
