Why? Why? Why?
Why must people share information of public concern and interest, more so matters that have grave implication for country with us?
When they share, we are obligated to God and country to expose, if not pose the necessary questions for the respective party to respond intelligently in public view.
Why must such responsibility keep falling on our lap?
While our contemporaries are comfortably retiring, we are still burdened with such conscience.
Last week at an after dinner drink near Bangsar-Damansara area, we were told of Singapore authority freezing the account of the spouse of a former Bank Negara Malaysia Governor.
No names were mentioned, no reasons were given, and no details were shared. Only you should find out first...
Damn, it kills our curiosity. However, maybe the person do not know and only shared the little he or she knows.
Sharing anything uncertain and only without specifics could be slandering and god forbid, fitnah.
One cannot be blind not to see and acknowledge the country is facing the wrath of God and now falling apart for succumbing to fitnah.
Then we tried testing the information with a renown personality of immense resourcefulness.
He confirmed hearing the same rumour.
Yesterday, we spoke to a Singaporean related to a relevent industry and she too admitted hearing the same.
There was some bit of detailing, but not considered confirmation.
The rumour has spread and it seriously needed for the public to be alerted of a former BNM Governor is compromised.
Usually former Governors are given positions in Government or PLCs and even special task of critical importance to the country. Their integrity should be without question.
The public need to be in the know and we are sharing it WYSIWIG or more appropriately, What You Hear Is What You Get. No tokok tambah.
After the first Mat Salleh Governor balik negeri, Malaysia had 8 BNM Governors.
|Tun Ismail Ali|

Hoping someone out there could arrange the opportunity to meet him.
Their spouse is unlikely to have raise suspicions to anything criminal. They are too old and may have passed on.
Jaafar was a gentleman who took responsibility to resign for the BNM forex loss fiasco, which was the doing of higher hands and Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop.
It is unlike Tan Sri Dr Zeti, who lied to say not aware of money allegedly linked to 1MDB and SRC being deposited into Dato Najib's personal account, but court testimonies revealed she was aware.
So does current Governor, Dato Norshamsiah.
|Tan Sri Ahmad Don|
The current Chairman of Alliance Bank Berhad may have made money from stock market tips, but doing anything legally suspicious and compromising his integrity he will not do.
Ahmad was at loggerhead with Mahathir and he had the integrity to resign.
Kak Normah now is with the kids in Australia. No reason to do anything suspicious and in Singapore.
Not much known of his wife from second marriage, but heard is a housewife.
Subsequent ex-Governors are not easy to vouch for their integrity.
|Tan Sri Ali Abul Hasan|
|Tan Sri Dr Zeti Aziz|
Social media claimed her husband made money from contracts to build new BNM wing.
There have been no denial from Zeti or husband, Dato Taufiq Aiman.
In the thick of the Panama Paper expose, her husband and children names surfaced for having off-shore accounts.
But Taufiq name was not mentioned by the initial source at near Bangsar-Damansara area or renown personality of immense resourcefulness or Singaporean.
Be fair to him.
Pengarah of CIDB or Pusat Khidmat Kontraktor Melayu could be entice using golf to accept bribery, but not Central Bank Governor.
Least is known of his spouce.
Who could the Governor be?
Curiosity kills a cat. Oh Lord, spare our six lovely cats and two kittens at home.
