So we waited till the cows came home and they did!

Today (March 12), Woman Minister Sharizat Abdul Jalil’s hubby is facing four charges of criminal breach of trust (Malaysiakini.com).

People are saying this IS still a sandiwara, as the case would take its time, though hearing is set for April 13. RM500k was set for bail…sap-sap-sui, as in no sweats, coz 1/4billion ringgit of the people’s money has been thrown out with the cowdang.

Yesterday, in a much expected move, Sharizat “tendered” her resignation as a cabinet minister…next month, in April. While quietly writing her obituary, from rising star to fallen mama, we shall also shout praises of her courage and her willingness to take responsibility for her failures.

Bull!  The truth is, this is NO resignation. When one leaves a post when one’s work term expires, in Sharizat’s case, her senatorship ends in April, it is called, “not being renewed”. In other words, she is being “kick-out”.  In other words, one is condemned, or rendered too obsolete to contribute anymore.

Najib does not view her in this manner, however, because she still retains her posts in Wanita BN and Umno. Politically, she is still there. How Wanita Umno fares after this is another story.

I guess you can’t fault her for this. With a chief like Najib in Umno and Chua Soi Lek in MCA (I do not have to go at great lengths to explain what I mean), Sharizat’s “sins” are no more than a “childish prank”.

It is appropriate ( for her to leave), as Prime Minister Najib Razak says, I agree, but she is certainly no sacrificial cow. If this is not election year (should be called by May 2013, why the delay?), would we see this great performance by Sharizat and Najib? It is anyone’s guess.

The deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin is awfully silent on this, and what is his stake, being the Agriculture Minister at that point of time, to oversee the issue when it happened?

So the real question remains, and we should not allow ourselves to be distracted by all the cowing and bulling over this ‘Bollywood drama” (as deemed by certain quarters), for we must continue to ask: how do we recover the RM250 million wasted in the “cow-in-condos” scandal?

As social activist – Organic/Electronic and now Election Ong Boon Keong says in my facebook post on Kak Jat:

“The real issue is, if there were corruption involved-thus the settlement should be on getting back the corrupted money! Her resignation is merely a PR damage control, no substitute for a proper, legal settlement of the original issue. If people forget the issue after this it is an indictment of how politicised the atmosphere in Malaysia had become!!!

    “Najib does not view her in this manner…”

    He views nothing in a sane manner. That’s why he’s sold entirely onto “Image”(Appearance) thing and never substance. He thinks he can have the cake and eat it too, and we’re too stupid and blind.

  2. So the back door minister , who lost her parliamentary seat, is finally going or shall I shall going ?
    Know why she is the chief of Umno wanita ? This is because Najib still needs her support in Umno, to remain as Umno president, thus as P.M. of Malaysia. Poor Najib is now in need of every single supporter in Umno in doing so, a desperate man he is.
    He apologizes to the people for Umno’s past mistakes but typical of Najib he did not apologize for his future atrocities. Just like when he first promised to award all top students, regardless of their races but at the end only the Malay students were sent abroad and that the non Malay top students were sent to the end lowly rated local at the end. These are his kind of promises !

    She should have been fired! Not leave, resign etc she is not a martyr. What is misused must be confiscated. The entire networking system should be checked. People should be compensated. We are not goldfishes to forgive and forget.

    In M’siakini pic she has to be so clearly contrived in seeking public sympathy as to make her announcement while holding to a small boy(her grandson?).

    What I really would like to know is what inspired the then Agriculture Minister and the Finance Minister to approve such a big sum (RM250 million is not a paltry amount) to a novice cow businessman. What was the incentive for releasing the whole sum even before the business kicked off. Normally loans for such a long term business venture are dished out incrementally as it progresses. All the guys/gals involved irrespective of their high offices should be investigated and punished accordingly.

    Proper and impartial investigations can only happen in a clean, transparent and accountable country. Those qualities are sorely lacking inthe present UMNO/BN government..

    The evil Mamakthir a/l Mohamad Kutty saw to it that all the institutions of good governance are tainted, corrupted and beyond redemption, That is the legacy this evil man leaves for present and future generations.

    Poor Datuk Seri Sharizat Jahil. It is not her fault that BN people are stupid and Malaysians even more stupid than the lembu lembu her family have been slaughtering .. sorry, I mean feeding.

    Stop bullying her. Her whole family (but not the family cat) has been busy working in the National Feed-a-Lot Corp. Her kids were only paid $25,000-$35,000 per month each! That is chickenfeed really! If you are not happy with the Cowgate don’t vote for the BN. But I guarantee you, that mst Malaysians will still vote for BN, cowgate or no cowgate. And that’s no bull!

    kfc oops…nfc is supposed to pay back by instalments from jan/02 : ilek !

    In my opinion, Sharizat’a face must be as thick as the cow-hyde. She still insists that she does not know anything about or having any connection with the KFC.

    She has forgotten that she is the spouse and the mother of the KFC’s Chairman and Directors respectively.

    At first I thought that she was a woman of word when she announced that she would resign from her ministership and chairmanman of UMNO Wanita. Later as time went by she was pursuaded to stay on as the Chairman of UMNO Wanita. She is hoping that the UMNO leadership would condone her and nominate her once again to stand against Nurul in the Pantai Constituency.

    If she is condoned, the only logical reason behind this ridiculous decision of the UMNO supereme leadership is that perhaps he prefers to work with a tainted servile cow than one that is unblemished and wild.
