Who is Capt. Joseph Lakai?

Hakim Joe 

On the 7th of December 2012, a Captain Joseph Lakai published an article titled “1976 plane crash: The unanswered questions” on FMT News (http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/opinion/2012/12/07/1976-place-crash-the-unanswered-questions/). This article was picked up by Malaysia Today and published on the same day (http://www.malaysia-today.net/mtcolumns/special-reports/53185-1976-plane-crash-the-unanswered-questions).

On the FMT article, the online news portal stated that the article is a testament of “A test pilot offers a peak into why the fatal 1976 plane crash which killed Sabah chief minister Fuad Stephens and several state cabinet members is seen as a conspiracy by locals.” (Note the incorrect spelling of the word “peak”).

Is this the same Joseph Wilfred Lakai who is the Vice Chairman of Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP)?

On the 11th of August 2012, Malaysia Today published an article titled “13,215 days ago” (http://www.malaysia-today.net/mtcolumns/guest-columnists/51063-13215-days-ago).

Please read both articles before making any comments. However, do take special note of the uncanny similarities between the two articles (word for word). Additionally do count the days between the exact date of the crash (6th June 1976) and the publication dates.

Number of days between 6th June 1976 and 11 August 2012 is 13,215 days.

Number of days between 6th June 1976 and 7 December 2012 is 13,333 days.

Both articles stated 13,215 days.

Is Capt. Joseph Lakai using the pseudonym “Hakim Joe”? (As in Joe is the short form of Joseph). I can assure you that Hakim Joe is definitely not Capt. Joseph Lakai.

Now you can comment all you like.

(St Low [MTadmin] – agrees with Hakim Joe and have taken Captain Joseph Lakai’s name out of the article on MT and replaced it with Hakim Joe.)
