MANEK URAI At last the final official result of the Manek Urai by-election – PAS won with a very slim majority of 65 votes – PAS Abe Uji got 5,340 votes against Tuan Aziz 5,283. I was rather surprised not because PAS won or UMNO-BN lost but it’s the majority. I expected the majority to be between 1000-1500 votes. Not that I being a sore loser, in this case my expectation, but with such a slim victory surely something is not right. PAS and it’s PR partners should all sit down for some serious soul-searching session on what went wrong, and what contributed to the slim victory. PAS should be blamed for the poor result as they have been over harping on the ‘unity talk’ of late. I read a comment posted by a voter from Manek Urai who was not in favor of the ‘unity talk’, that he may as well vote for BN if that is the case. In the first place these voters don’t like UMNO-BN and now PAS wants to kowtow them. What the hack!

Anakdesa says what ever the so-called ‘unity talk’ is only UMNO’s ploy of ‘divide and rule’ tactic. They are damn good with this tactic works, but then again it all depends on the other party whether they are a fool or otherwise. This tactic was applied over and over again in Sabah with all the non-muslim bumiputra and the non-bumiputra population divided into smaller fractions with so many political parties to represent them. This has made Sabah it’s way into the Guinness Book of Record for having the most political parties in Malaysia, if not in the world.

Abe Uji - PAS

Was it because the BN was clever in manipulating the situation or was it the Sabah so-called leaders who were actually damn STUPID. Or was the Sabah so-called leaders genius that they managed to convinced the central government to register and  accept their parties into BN, in return of position in the government where they can accumulate wealth?

Anakdesa has no political affiliation, so whoever had won in Manek Urai bears little significant to me. If I am a voter in Manek Urai, I’ll be choosing between the devil and the deep blue sea. However given no choice to choose as there are only UMNO-BN and PAS candidates, I would rather X-ed PAS. I’ve no lost love for UMNO-BN after what they have done to Sabah with it’s ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic and how they manipulated the PATI (pendatang asing tanpa izin), issuing them with I/Cs so that they can vote for BN. These have made the local lost their rights as Malaysian citizens in many aspects such as medical facilities, night-market business etc. Not to mention the increased in crimes – drugs, rapes, housebreaking, murder  etc. which was committed by these PATI.

As I’ve written in my earlier artical ( READ HERE ), UMNO-BN needs to change it’s leaders attitude who, many said are full of  CORRUPTIONCRONYISM, RACIST, FAVOURITISM AND ARROGANT attitudes. They need to change or will surely be changed in the next general election.

Coming back to Manek Urai by-election, PAS should understand that the ‘unity’ talk is actually a ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic of UMNO. They know very well that PR is growing each day and so the only way to break PR is by using this tactic thus creating suspicion among the members of PR. Ostensibly to unite the community, PAS members however believe Najib meant to weaken their party and to break it apart from its Pakatan partners PKR and DAP. If PAS believe this is so then why are they continuing talking about ‘unity talk’ with UMNO-BN? Is it true that Najib is willing to divide the community just for the sake of his political games and hold on to power?

Anakdesa says to PAS – don’t be a fool or being fooled!

Now lets analise the result of the by-election. Manek Urai is a really rural Malay heartland where most (99%) of it’s voters are Malays, yet the UMNO-BN was unable to capture the seat despite deploying enormous resources and promises such as bridge of votes. This is something that Datuk Seri Najib as the President of UMNO and BN should take cognizance of, he can’t win in a Malay heartland by-election, wonder what hope does he have in other mix-areas!

Or was the loses contributed by his Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin who stepped on the toes of the Manek Urai Malays when he  belittle Mohd Fauzi (PR candidate), a self-made trader with a thriving fish-wholesaling business. These might have hurt the Malays as most of these Malays voters are simple and friendly people. Then came the DPM from the urban, belittling and describing Mohd Fauzi as a mere fishmonger, a humble profession for most of Kelantanese rural folks. It is actually an insult to all fishmonger and fishermen. How could someone made a visit your house and say it is a bad habit to eat with your fingers when it is your culture. Isn’t that an insult to to your culture? Sometimes some people just don’t use their brain when they talk!

Or the promise of a bridge be built the very next day should they win the by-election. Isn’t this a very unrealistic promise. To build is of course realistic but to build it the very next day??? I just couldn’t believe this when I heard him said this in TV1. If those words were uttered by any man on the street, I might just smile and said “oh what the hell, what does he know about building a bridge” or maybe he was talking about building a wooden bridge with no proper architectural plan which needed a few months to draw. But when it came from the number 2 man-in-command, no dictionary can describe my astonishment.  Only a fool would believe that can happen. If you say to demolish Petronas Twin Tower the next day, I would incline to believe as that is possible with thousands kilos of C4 placed all round the building structure! After that with just a push of a button,  Petronas Twin Tower will vanish in the thin air.

This is the kind of empty/unrealistic promises especially made during election 0r by-election time just to buy votes and these are the kind of leaders we have in Malaysia! Ahhh… by the way, isn’t this corruption? No I presume as the words came from the people that walk the corridor of power BUT yes if it came from the mouth of the opposition.

Anyway, with a 65 majority, a win is still a win! RIGHT? SO WHAT!

PETALING JAYA: Former Selangor mentri besar Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo said he purchased his controversial mansion for RM3.5mil from a company that was facing financial difficulties.

Dr Khir said he took a RM3mil HSBC loan and spent RM600,000 on renovations.

The RM3.5mil value of the sprawling but abandoned Section 7 bungalow in Shah Alam was derived at by accredited real estate property agents Rahim and Co, he said.

Dr M: I don’t believe Khir’s mansion costs only RM3.5mil

KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is not convinced with former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo’s claim that his controversial mansion costs only RM3.5mil.

“He cannot simply say he bought the mansion for RM3.5mil. I believe it is more than that,” he said.

“I also have a home in Seri Kembangan. I have spent RM1mil on it, but this (Dr Khir’s mansion) is massive – many times bigger than mine,” he said.

Anakdesa says  why is this particular politician think that he can fool the people claiming that his mansion cost only RM3.5 million. Every man in the street can estimate the cost of houses around Shah Alam. The rakyat is not stupid if you think that they will just swallow all your words, just like the Disneyland trip. Even Tun M doesn’t believe this clown!

Well Datuk Seri PM, what are you going to do about this? Just sweep it under the carpet? Let the MACC carry out their investigation, just for show and then stamped it “No Further Action”???

Anakdesa says to Khir  Toyo, lots of scandals are being said and linked to you and as this was your very own words regarding scandals  “Malaysians were not ready to accept leaders afflicted with scandals and given this, Bukit Lanjan Assembly rep Wong should relinquish all her positions., you should step down as state opposition leader, ADUN and all that you stand on your moral high ground.

I can’t stand hypocrites! To HELL with hypocrites!

While I was driving to day, I heard our newly appointed PM Datuk Seri Najib announcing the uplifting of two banned newpapers and the released of 13 Hindrafsupporters. I started to wonder whether the action to ‘uplift and release’ got something to do with the 3 by-elections? Is the newly appointed PM trying to tell the Minister of Internal affairs, Datuk Syed Hamid Albar’s action was wrong and not a good decision?

I just hope that the action taken to ‘uplift and release’ is notjust a ploy to gain votes for the 3 by-elections. This not about Datuk Seri Najib being elected as prime minister or the president of UMNO but more on the attitude of the UMNO members who have became very arrogant and corrupted. Many so-called leaders in UMNO don’t admit  their mistake and they are beyond criticism. Just like the case of the wrongly detained reporter and MP Teresa Kok. Just like how the minister in charged reacted!

For a simple Anakdesa like me, it is just too early to write off Datuk Seri Najib as the 6th Prime Minister. The above ‘uplifting and release’ is just not my kind of measuring tape. Give him time to prove to the people that he is just not one of the arrogant and corrupted UMNO member. And that what he swear in the name of his Creator is true.

Meanwhile, may I humbly congratulate him on his appointment as the 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia

mahathir

PUTRAJAYA, Nov 12 – Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today suggested the Internal Security Act (ISA) should be used against corrupt Umno members.

He also backed Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as the best candidate in the race for the Umno deputy presidency while suggesting that the other two challengers are involved in money politics.

“That’s a good way to use ISA, not for some writer who writes nonsense,” he said of corrupt Umno members and also in an apparent reference to Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamarudin, who was released recently from ISA detention. (The Malaysian Insider)

For once Anakdesa seems to agree with what Tun Dr Mahathir said. But why only now is he singing the song? Why not while he was the Umno president? Anyway, money politics is not some thing that is new or unheard of in Umno. It has been there since day 1 of the Umno baru but has there been any concrete action taken to stop it? NO, nothing concrete except for some window dressing action by the disciplinary committee. Almost half of the delegates be it at the branch or division level are all tainted with corruption. That is how Umno is and will always will be. A corrupted party! If at party level, corruption is rampant, I wonder how it is in the government!

If Umno is to adhere the advise of their former president than my sincere condolence to Umno as I guess more then half of the Umno party leaders will be in Kamunting Camp – holidaying!

Errrr…..will Syed Hamid sign his own detention order?

Is money evil, so much so that people used to brand money as ‘the roots of all evil’? Or is it the love of money? Or is it power that is actual evil of all evils?

It is amazing how history keeps repeating itself…each time whenever party election is round the corner. It is as if or is it actually the facts that in politics and money/bribes cannot be separated. No matter how the party tend to curb and prevent such corruption, it will it never stop if the so-called leaders are greedy. It all boils up to the greediness of human beings. A true  and sincere leader, if accepted by the rakyat, need not use money nor corrupt practice to be elected.

Money may indeed be a corrupting influence in politics though some UMNO leaders have refuse to acknowledge publicly that money/bribes was passed from some candidates to delegates be it at the party’s divisional or branch election. But recently, I notice that UMNO members Capt (R) Dato Zahar Hashim, Head of UMNO South PJ was so bold to accused the two top guns in UMNO for committing the biggest political corruption. Then UMNO veteran Dato Mazlan Harun report it to the ACA based on Capt (R) Dato Zahar Hashim’s statement. Are these action being bold or stupid or ‘seppuku’ or disrespect or just being patriotic to UMNO? Will the action of these 2 members eliminate UMNO from money politics or will it create a bigger crack in the party and an advantage to the PR? 

If it is true as what  Capt (R) Dato Zahar Hashim claimed, then UMNO now is at the doorstep to doomsday. Do I really care or shed my tears if it does happen? Hemmmm… let me ponder on this fine point first or rather let me see if I still have any more tears to shed. I’ve been shedding too much tears lately. Meanwhile I just want to sing… Money..Money..Money

After the Malaysian general election on March 8, 2008, we heard people from all walks of life talking about “Political Tsunami” and it has been going on ever since.

Malaysia had a surprise election result, the Barisan Nasional dropped down from its overwhelming control of Parliament to a simple majority. Additionally, the alliance was voted out in five important states. The results have brought into the open the strong discontent among the ethnic minorities – the Chinese and Indians as well a loss of support among the Malays.

The rakyat has been asking “WHY”. A once mighty giant (BN) swept by the tsunami political wave and ended up like a limping cow.  In this election, it won just 51% of the votes; and 63% of parliamentary seats. This was its worst performance ever in Malaysia’s 50 years of independence, and crucially, for the first time since 1969, the BN lost the two-thirds majority in parliament it needs to amend the constitution.

If we care to notice, all  great empires or government in the world will have its share of time. All of them have had their great times and  as history has proven it, there will be a time that their supremcy ends.

So, is this the beginning of the end of the once mighty BN? Will there be changes in the political scenario in Malaysia after 50 years?  Is this the time? It seems that there are so many questions dangling around ever since the March 8, 2008 election.

As I have said earlier, the BN has been in power for the past 50 years and no change of government has ever taken place. So I don’t have the liberty to compare between a good government and a bad government in terms of BN governance. They are everything from good to bad. From bad to worst.

In this article, I would like to talk on all the governments in Sabah. Why Sabah? Well because I am from Sabah and I have tasted and went through all kind of government ever since Sabah got its independent from the British. And foremost because Sabah has the most number of government changed and the most numbers of Chief Ministers in the history of Malaysia. Though how much I, being a Sabahan, hated and ashamed to admit it, one can not erease the truth. It will forever be in the histroy of Sabah!

A very brief history on the changes of Sabah Government
– UNKO government was the first party to rule Sabah in 1963. At that time the late Tun Mustapha, who was the Head of State, wasn’t too happy with his limited role in the Government. So he orchestrated to remove UNKO and meanwhile had SCA to fill in the shoe as the Government. USNO took over from SCA as the Government. Meanwhile UNKO was disbanded. Unhappy with the rampant abuse of power and corruption by USNO, Berjaya party was formed to overthrow the USNO Government. Berjaya Government was then overthrown by the PBS party largely due to the iron-fist rule by the then CM and allegation of corruption by his cronies. PBS quit BN on the eve of 1994 general election, incurred the wreath by some of its ADUN becoming ‘frogs’. These ‘frogs’ joined BN and due to that BN has ruled Sabah state till today. Within the short span ( 15 years) of BN in power in Sabah, there are 7 chief ministers rotated within the BN coalition. Another history for Sabah! This rotation of chief ministers was mooted by the then Prime Minister. Personally, I would say that the rotation of CM is an insult to Sabahans and was indirectly implicating that Sabahans are crazy of power. Everyone wanted to be a CM! So give lah…each party ( UMNO, SAPP, PDS, LDP ) 2 years!

I came to this world, a ‘stage’ for actors as our real world is yet to come for all of us who are still alive now, before the Malaysia Day Sept 16, 1963. UNKO didn’t have the time to prove itself in governing the state. USNO in the first few years was good but towards the end they became ARROGANT. The CM wanted to become a sultan and fall out of favour with the federal government. With the help of the central government  Berjaya party took over. Because of  ARROGANT  CRONYISM and CORRUPTION they too were humbly shown the way out. PBS has its share of CORRUPTIONCRONYISM and of course ‘FROGS’ that brought them down. And now the BN Government though CORRUPTION and CRONYISM exist but due to the helping hand of RACIST DIVIDE AND RULE POLICY ONE-SIDED MEDIA and the infamous ‘PROJECT I/C’ they are still in power.

Generally, governments are cast out from office primarily due to  CORRUPTIONCRONYISM, RACIST, FAVOURITISM AND ARROGANT

Is there actually any good Government?  Yes all governments are good but only in the first few years in power. A good governance is the process whereby public institutions conduct public affairs, manage public resources and guarantee the realisation of human rights essentially free of abuse and corruption, and with due regard for the rule of law.
Bad government? ALL!!  There will to be  ARROGANT, RACIST, CORRUPTION,  FAVOURITISM and CRONYISM  act after being in power too long. It’s the greedy human nature that once they are in power they tend to sweep all the state riches into their bank account. Tell me of one soul in Malaysia who has been in power that is not rich??? Do you think that their salary of being a minister or MP or ADUN for just a few years can really buy them those millions ringgits bungalows? 
A party being in power too long is not healthy. The so-called leaders of the day, will forget in what they stand for in the first place – to get rid of a bad government! In time, they too joined the bandwagon of bad governments. 
I don’t believe in being patriotic to any one party in the name of my race or religion. Being patriotic to the your race, religion and country..YES. But not to certain party or individual. Especially if the party or government has diverted from its duty of being a good government. A government for all Malaysian irrespective of their colours or religions and essentially free of abuse and corruption.
Simply said – Don’t let a single government stay in power too long!
