|Is it more important for Amokh to please Tun Dol than Najib?|
The business papers reported yesterday that Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad (MAHB) announced the appointment of brother to Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar, Dato Syed Faisal Albar to be an Independent Director of MAHB.
This is fueling speculation that Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad will end his one year extension as Managing Dirrefctor and will be replaced by Syed Faisal.
The name Syed Faisal is sickening to the stomach. It reminded us of his arrogant and incompetence Arab tak sedar diri brother, Syed Hamid during the reign of terror of Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. He lost Batu Putih island to Singapore and interfere to apply ISA on a reporter.
Syed Feisal is himself of questionable integrity and capability.
Doesn't Khazanah Nasional CEO, Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar realised that he is not working for Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi any more?
Thus, why is he still bringing people that was part of the evil triumvirate of Kalimullah-Kamaluddin-Khary into important position? Or is this Tan Sri Nor Mohamad Yakcop in his elements?
|An incompetent legacy from the "Cemerlang, Gemilang dan ... Temberang" era|
Since Tun Dol resigned, this is not the first time Amokh is sticking to the cronies of the old regime that wrecked havoc to the Malaysian aviation industry. It is now left to Najib to put the pieces together and attempt a turnaround of MAS.
Amokh had engineered a heavily lop-sided "merger" between MAS and Air Asia that favour of Tony Fernandez-led Air Asia.
Air Asia was a beneficiary of crony capitalism involving Khairy and Dato Zaki Zahid who together with Tony F redid the cabinet-approved National Airline Rationalisation plan. By the following Monday, Tun Dol announced a different plan on the instruction of Khairy and Zaki.
Despite that move resulted in Air Asia taking over MAS routes and Amokh claimed he fought tooth and nail with Tony F for constantly "sailang" MAS, the MAS-Air Asia "merger" only indicate Amokh have a problem realising that the Prime Minister is no more Tun Dol but Dato Najib.
The fact that Dato Najib has set the precedent at IMDB to only bring in professionals and capable people on the Board of Directors and management, it raises issue on Amokh's tendency to bring in his cronies, particularly incompetent ones.
In the MAS-Air Asia "merger" he gave his partner in their firm Bina Fikir, Danny Yusof that failed in the WAU exercise of MAS, a leading role.
Amokh kept his failed MCKK classmate, Dato Harun Johari who repeated his failure at Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) to Khazanah new start-up involving agriculture. Even in area of logistic which is supposed to be his core competency at Shell, Harun failed also.
There are also failures retained as Executives Directors Amokh One is Tengku Dato Azmil who failed at MAS. Then there is Hisham Hamdan, the former Sime Darby's executive who bombed in the privatisation of IJN and Qatar deal.
|Syed Feisal and the evil Kalimullah in their heydays under Tun Dol regime|
With regard to the new appointment at MAHB, Syed Faisal is not politically and capability wise appropriate. He still remain within Kalimullah's circle of evil.
Despite New Straits Times withdrawing their lawsuit against blogger and former Malay Mail editor, Dato Ahiruddin Attan@ Rockybru, Syed Faisal remain with opposition backing The Malaysian Insider (TMI) owner, Kalimullah in their lawsuit against Rocky.
For an opposition backing portal, TMI still provide space for Tun Dol, Khairy and those within the Kalimullah-Kamaluddin-Khairy triumvirate.
Najib is quite aware and Raja Petra's Wikileak expose that reported Singapore believed Najib and Rosmah involvement in the murder of Altantunya and it can only speculated their intelligence operative, Kalimullah fed them with such information.
There are sources believing that Kalimullah was not merely feeding Singapore's intel but was instrumental in masterminding the frameup of Najib and Rosmah together with political personalities in the opposition and in UMNO.
|Many things ain't right about him|
"It is a mystery why Khazanah Holdngs Bhd appointed a corporate has-been like Syed Faisal into Malaysia Airports. He did fairly when he was the CEO of NTSP Bhd. Then he joined Pos Malaysia Bhd. However, when DRB-Hicom took over Pos Malaysia, Syed Faisal was not retained.
Its a demonstration that Syed Faisal is not recognized as a corporate-wizard by Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al Bukhary.
The Sun Biz story is right. Why would Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar appoint a corporate has been like Syed Faisal, who has no relevant experience in airport operations or airlines into Malaysia Airports?
Unless, there is something non kosher in the play."
|Claiming to be at odd with Tony F, but wants to be in same bed|
There are several suspicions that Amokh wants to oust Bashir out for several reasons.
One, Amokh is still in co-hort with Tony F, who has been having a war of words with Bashir on Airport tax and other issues. The mother fucker cannot get his way with other airports in the region so there is no reason why MAHB should succumb to his ranting.
Two, Amokh could be subtly collaborating to sabotage a Najib-endorsed initiative, Malindo Airways that serve to counter Tony F's threat and sabotage attempt on KLIA2 and is a win-win partnership between Malaysian and Indonesian interests.
Thirdly, placing Syed Faisal as CEO would help Tony F fulfill his dream of building and managing his own dream Airport complex and "steal" revenue away from MAHB.
Fourth, if not, Syed Feisal would oblige to allow Tony F to build his Sepang headquarter taller than the airport control tower so that Air Asia can stand out their brand and a safety hazard.
Fifth, it is no secret that Azman wants Khazanah to be in the same bed with Tony F.By this appointment, Amokh is ignoring the PM's wishes to move up in the learning curve in the area of corporate governance as set at IMDB.
He continues with his cronyism practises by appointing those with personal links to himself, particularly his MCKK Alma Mater or those linked to the Tun Dol regime.
Not only that, he maintain a closed guarded secret fraternity of management, incompetents from outside Khazanah and con-sultans in the same manner as the "skull and dagger" fraternity of George Bushs' Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Yale University.
Is Amokh sabotaging the Government to help Pakatan Rakyat takeover?
If he is, then Amokh should be swiftly removed even before general election is over and sent back to UBS to do dog shit analysis of stocks.
