Incompetent treacherous Azumu apes Mahathir
After Azmin Ali’s gay sex video, which Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad tried to cover-up using some ridiculous and laughable excuses, another video clip has emerged that would need the intervention of the 94-year-old premier again. Unlike Azmin’s sex scandal, however, the new video clip involving Mahathir’s own party could trigger a serious leadership crisis in the state of Perak.
A video clip of Perak Menteri Besar (Chief Minister) Ahmad Faizal Azumu bitching to a group of people how he is fighting a “lone battle” against DAP has gone viral. He was caught saying – “I am fighting alone with the DAP clans. I want to defend the Malay land and to fight for our religion. Thankfully, some friends in UMNO don’t scold me. They are good with me.”
The 2-minute-47-second video clip has indeed raised eyebrows considering DAP is one of four major components making up Pakatan Harapan, the coalition that had stunningly defeated the old government of Barisan Nasional, a coalition controlled and dominated by the corrupt and racist UMNO party for the last 61 years since independence in 1957.
The video is believed to have been recorded during the Tanjung Piai by-election campaign as Pakatan Harapan’s candidate Karmaine Sardini is also seen in the footage. And since both Ahmad Faizal and Karmaine Sardini are members of Mahathir’s party – PPBM (Bersatu) – the video naturally creates a bigger mistrust, doubt and suspicion about the hidden agenda of the party.
It screams treacherous that as the chief minister of Perak, Faizal didn’t think twice about condemning ally DAP but rained praises on opposition UMNO, as if his own party had joined the wrong coalition. Clearly, his heart is still with the corrupt UMNO, never mind its former president Najib Razak faces 42 charges of criminal breach of trust (CBT), money laundering and abuse of power.
The best part was when Ahmad Faizal said to the crowd, presumably his trusted circle, that he had UMNO “blood” and would not mind helping “his people”. That statement alone suggests that behind the scenes, the chief executive of Perak could have helped – even conspired – to ensure projects and contracts were given to UMNO people in the state.
