"Nasi kangkang" way to CEO-ship
Earlier this year, an agency under the Ministry of Communication and Multimedia (MCM) undergone a change at the top post.
Many speculations arise as to why the previous Executive Chairman was removed. Prior to his removal, a certain blogger friend accused him of dishing contracts to wrong people, However, the facts are all screwed up thus making it more a set-up than a credible allegation. It turns out there were questionable appointments on the advisory "board".
There was complains against him for being light in his enforcement. But, JPA had no allocation to their request for additional staff and training to increase surveliance, investigation and prosecution.
It is not Malaysia without some politics in the background. One of his previous officer rose up the rank in politics. This opens up to various conspiracies.
These are all water under the bridge. He left and much effort was needed to hold him down in Malaysia. Otherwise, he could have left abroad and get paid in the millions.
The new appointee had an assignment in the "... decoupling the role of the chief executive officer (CEO) from the role of chairman...". It was to solve a previous problem that could open up opportunity for upward mobility, but create a new problem for the organisation.
A "nasi kangkang" one ...
The mere mention of "nasi kangkang" conjures up the image of an ambitous woman willing to do anything to get what she wants to the extent of using black magic on her own husband.
The methodology applied is not black magic but the prospect to the organisation will get as dark.
The woman is no Sofia Jane as in the actress that did the squat on rice scene in U Wei's 1993 movie "Perempuan, Isteri dan Jalang". That was how the word nasi kangkang got into the public conscience. Since no name is to be mentioned but lets just.refer her as "Sofia Jane".
How "Sofia Jane" will make her way up is none of anybody's freakin' business. It does not matter in the sense that most of the bitchings in office politics tend to be hearsay, speculative, and laced with envy.
What matters is the organisation and industry when she move up without any credentials and in such devious ways.
For the past 15 years, she was stuck to a single position of no significance in the organisation. It is all public relation without any exposure to policy formulation, regulatory work, industry development, and in the like Xavier Justo, the expectation of time to monitor and enforce.
Rather harsh to describe her as doing merely GRO work with the organisation's international contacts. It is not the appropriate thing to say in the month of Ramadhan despite the talk at the water cooler to described the modus operandi of this mamak lady with a chinese surname closely resemble one.
Public or international relation requires personal touch and soft skills which cannot be taught and requires some natural gift and talent. It can be done effectively in a professional manner but not as described in Malay as "mengeceh", "merenget", "mengada-ngada" and "menggedik-gedik". The English description could be just flirt.
With her limited skill and knowledge in the industry, she did manage to get herself promoted to some "strategy"-titled officer position. After 15 years, she cannot be left in the same minor role in support and services.
However, that promotion gave her access to apply her skill on the new Chairman and Minister.
The Chairman is a regular masjid goer in his neighbourhood in Damansara Utama so not gullible to "nasi kangkang". One brilliant Malay professor in regional studies used to fall to "nasi kangkang cina" and was black magic by layers of seven dragons, mind you.
The returned former Chairman and former Ministry Secretary General is capable of holding his own. Could he resist the flirtation of "Sofia Jane"?
"Sofia Jane" waits for him daily at office doorstep at 7 am, accompany him to office, and carry his bag up on the pretext of briefing him. Not that he will succumb to this woman's flirt, but it is the time spent casually that is most potent in winning the heart and trust of a man.
As it is, all the Chairman email get CC-ed to her. It would seem none of Chairman's work is confidential from her.
That takes care of one side of the power equation. By 9 AM, she waits for the Menteri. Same routine.
Dato Seri Shabery is quite steady a bloke. A simple man with no hiccup for any worldly trappings. Lives modestly in a Desa Pandan apartment. Hope he could keep it that way.
The talk in the organisation is that he has become so casual with her that "Sofia Jane" made some verile selfie pictures that could be dangerous when viraled. Simple fun that could be dangerous to any politicians with a rural constituent. There are still many Xavier Justos out there.
"Sofia Jane" has got her strangle on the power sources to near completion. Now it is for her to close in on the ultimate power when the CEO role is decouple from the Execitive Chairman position. That "strategy"-titled officer position has brought her close enough.
That will be access to power in the area of regulation, licensing, and criminalising offenses. It is a gold digger's dream to the pot of gold hounded by many past and current politicians and civil servants with corrupt tendency - the RM1.4 billion Annual Universal Services Provider fund.
Shabery just spoke about cost for building telecommunication insfrastructure is more than the allocation [read MI here]. Burp ....
There is a saying, "People who feel the need to control others, don't have control over themselves." That makes her dangerous.
This is the month of Ramadhan so someone will say it not appropriate to bitch on someone without a concern. The concern is significant. Without the complete power, she has proven to be abusive.
At only Jusa B rank, she managed to wiggle her way for first class overseas air travel. It does not end there. She get received at airport by chaffeaur driven car.
Edmund Burke said, "The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse." What will happen to the organisation?
"Controllers, abusers and manipulative people don't question themselves. They don't ask themselves if the problem is them. They always say the problem is someone else."
With a leadership without knowledge, experiance, skill and creativity to lead, such a senario is likely to happen. It has happened before and still happening in organisation like MAS. The organisation will begin to breakdown. Office politics and backstabbing among staff and managers on the rise.
The beginning of the end for the work of decades.
