Is the propensity to be corrupt a prerequisite for appointment as UMNO Menteri Besars?
The Malacca one got off scot free and is now Chairman of Felcra.
The Seremban one was rapped on the knuckles and is now Chairman of Felda.
One Johor MB was not given the post again because he is alleged to own so much land in JB except some private plots in the cemetery.
One Selangor MB was imprisoned for graft, another one for smuggling money out of the country but got off because of poor comprehension of English…..and he was HM of a sekolah.
The former Selangor MB is now found guilty and faces imprisonment.
One across the South China Sea was alleged to have transferred money to Hong Kong and owns a string of hotels.
Another, also across the South China Sea aka Taib’s acquisition of wealth is now legendary, at home and abroad.
To my knowledge, the choice of an MB is the PM’s and the appointment is from the King/Sultan upon advisement of the PM.
Should this process be questioned?
We have been questioning UMNO appointing their chief as Prime Minister of our country.
How about the winning party in a state election put up as many candidates for MB and let the rakyat, opposition supporters included, in the state vote for their MB. The candidates can “kill” each other in the process and can thus be eliminated. Probably that way we can get a CLEAN Menteri Besar for a change.
Let’s have some DECENT men or is there a shortage of such in UMNO. I would not want to believe this as I have some friends in UMNO who are beyond reproach in words, deeds and action!
We are currently a joke in the region. The common dig is:
In Bolehland, got money boleh lah!
