THE GREAT UMNO IMPLOSION HAS BEGUN AND UMNO HAVE AHMAD ZAHID HAMIDI - IT'S PRESIDENT TO THANK.
Well I did predict in my last article that should BN win the next elections it may not be good news for Zahid, and for all his efforts to get Parliament dissolved it is very likely that he may well land up in prison for a long time courtesy of his good friend described as "the world's number one Kleptocrat."
His good friend had tried to get rid of him and that has been revealed by Tajuddin who said Najib was prepared to get rid of Zahid, Nazri has confirmed what Tajuddin has said.
Tajudin has revealed, "during a meeting, held in May 2020, it was agreed that Zahid should go, and they were to collect the signatures of Umno division leaders from across the country on a memorandum to be sent to the president," meaning Zahid.
According to Pasir Salak MP, among the leaders
present were former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak, Umno deputy
president Mohamad Hasan and UMNO vice-president Mohamed Khaled Nordin, Najib supported the move and later backed down when Tok Mat who was intimidated by Zahid refused to support the move, why that was so it is not really clear.
UMNO President under fireAs long as Zahid is President of UMNO he stands the best chance to become the next PM, "IF" and
only "IF" UMNO and BN should snatch victory under his Presidency. Now that goal seems to be distancing itself from UMNO thanks to its President Zahid Hamidi.
It is no secret that Najib wants the seat of the PM at all costs, why right now even in the midst of his court cases and after being found guilty and being sentenced for 12 years he is dictating terms to Ismail Sabri as though he is still the power behind the throne but Sabri stubbornly does not want an election soon he want to make sure that he will remain the candidate for that position come the next GE so he keeps Najib at Bay.
While Zahid begins washing dirty linen in public, dirty UMNO linen I mean to justify his misdeeds ( he seems to think that he can be corrupt because others are too) he is putting himself in a very precarious position, no one in UMNO will trust him and I'll say it again, "there is no honour among thieves," and Zahid seems to prove that statement. UMNO as a result is a party where the leader is running around like a "Chicken without a Nec," in desperation after all he is one of the "desperate dua".
The Khairy faction is working with Ismail Sabri to stop this court cluster from grabbing power in the next government, the Zahid faction in UMNO are against him Khairy and Tok Mat an advisor to Sabri, but how strong is the Zahid group?
According to UMNO insiders 130 UMNO divisions had signed a petition for Zahid to step down at the time Najib met with UMNO leaders for this purpose, and if it is put again more will join in and make it untenable for Zahid to continue, but Najib will not push that idea as she needs Zahid for now to pursue his own goals, that will com in handy to Najib later, but now is not the time and Najib is keeping that on hold for a more appropriate time.
Khairy and many UMNO MPs of today are in favour of forming a 'Big Tent' government without Najib and Zahid, the Najib and Zahid faction can be dispensed with and a coalition of parties may be in line to form the next government, as the majority of who should be the next PM will be decided by a vote in Parliament and not UMNO, the King must appoint someone who has the support of the majorityin Parliament.
There are already secret talks to this end, and Anwar is in serious discussion on the matter, in the next few weeks we shall see Tajuddin throwing his support behind Bersatu or Amanh , he'll quit UMNO, I am told, he is not in favour of PAS as he is vary of the relationship between Hadi and Najib and he is quite sure he will be back stabbed there. PAS call to Tajuddin is do Najib a favour, and get rid of him for good from politics.
Tajuddin has a war chest and has had ambitions to oust Zahid, but I do not think the grass roots will go for him, like Zahid he does not only look incapable but is really and truly so plus his record speaks poorly of him.
Khairy is still the best bet and had Razaleigh not come in to play spoiler in the last UMNO elections both Najib an Zahid would have been minced meat with Khairy as the President and they knew it, it was they who convinced Razaleigh to to contest knowing full well that "the man who was born to lose" would never win, but with his presence Khairy would lose a whole chunk of votes and that is exactly what happened.
UMNO is filled with "leaders" if they can be called such whose own interest comes first above nation and party, that is in fact the the very nature of UMNO it is part of the party's DNA and has been so since the days of Mahathir and that is telling among all UMNO leaders today.
Najib wants power to free himself and his wife.
Have the UMNO members forgotten their beloved Rosmah Mansor?
Mahathir has been exposed by Najib, Anwar refrains from doing so and I wonder why, he says he knows all Mahathir's secrets and I believe so too and that is why Mahathir is "Hell bent' to ensure that Anwar never becomes PM.
I doubt there is a single clean politician in UMNO past, present and looking within UMNO even the future, all have had their pockets lined and continue to do so, once they are cast away from politics like Tajuddin now has, all is gone. There is so much money in UMNO politics for leaders from Brach to division to the supreme council.
Why do you think Mahathir is so crazy on still becoming PM?
Will Ismail Sabri want to relinquish the position of PM?
Most certainly not but he has to find innovative ways to make sure he remains if he wants to remain and he is doing it right now.
If he calls and early election he is going to get fried, it will be in his best interest to run the full term if he is to give himself a real chance to continue.
Will Zahid want to become PM?
Of course, this clueless man wants that most of all, but will Najib let him?
Najib would drown hism right now if he had no sue of him in the interim, so the most likely candidate to become PM is Najib he'll try another Mahathir he's vying taking that seat again.
If Najib loses his appeal and is jailed he will seek a Royal Pardon and do you think he'll get it?
Well your guess is as good as mine.
If he does get the Royal Pardon which will be most likely to happen, then Zahid will have to give in to his demands to enjoy that pardon too and so doing will become History.
Zahid may be made High Commissioner to Pakistan, if he doesn't he'll have a full bed suite in Sungei Buloh and Najib would like that better, because Najib will then show the world that he does not interfere with the judicial process, Zahid will become Najib's kerbau Korban.
Najib would want to look like clean leader who does not interfere with the judiciary and would sacrifice even his best friend when it comes to "National" I mean Najib interests.
That is the irony of today's Malay politics, but even as I write more and more Malays are seeing the trouble brewing with today's bunch of "leaders."
Even as I write Zahid is pointing his fingers everywhere, now it is Jeli MP Mustapa Mohasmed affectionately knownas Tok Pa, and that man Tok Pa was a close confidante of Najib's following him on almost every trip abroad, though on those trips his wife being a close confidante of Rosmah travelled on the same Jet with Rosmah and Najib, he Tok Pa chose not to most of the time, as Najib was known to be fond of wine and fine cigars which he enjoyed on the Executive Jet, being a devout Muslim he did not want to be part of that, and he could not stand the smell of Cigar smoke, soe he normally flew on commercial flightts.
To date Tok Mat has not said a word about Najib although he is privy to some juicy stories from his travels with Najib.
Zahid's allegations that Kelantan UMNO which Tok Pa headed came from 1MDB could be true, there was some 30 million ringgit there but it is very likely that To Pa had no inclination of where the money came from,as did many of the other UMNO leaders and Branch leaders, as it was abundantly clear that even the Deputy Prime Minister at that time was not privy to such knowledge, to Tok Pa and probably to all the rest it was money from UMNO HQ allocated to them as election funds that is the more likely scenario.
But ask Tok Pa about what happened on Najib's trips to New York and Seoul, and he may tell you if Najib does nto put a noose on his barking doggie. Tok Pa's wife was the lady Rosmah always insisted fly with her, because his wife was fluent in English and was on the same academic level as Rosmah she has seen a lot too so Zahid had better watch his ramblings.
Tok Pa has been quiet about all this, and Najib must surely appreciate it so it will be wise for Zahid to watch what he says about Tok Pa as he was closer to Najib then Zahid has ever been though on the intellectual and professional level.
By pointing his finger to Tok Mat he is surely inviting reprisals from Najib, but not so soon, Najib is tolerating him and what he is saying, Najib would not want him to think he's not with him, Najib needs him for now.
UMNO is now under siege from its own members and ironically its President too, there are at least three factions if not four, the clarity will settle in soon and the next GE may not go UMNO's way after all, as the people especially the Malays are now reading the true UMNO better by the day.
More interesting news and exposures are in the pipeline from Perlis to Johor and the stories are going to come out strong and clear soon, it will fan the fires that could well destroy UMNO for good as the s*it continues hit the ceiling.
