After Dr Wan Azizah’s rejection, some pundits say end is nigh for Save Malaysia group

KUALA LUMPUR, April 18 — Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail’s formal refusal to join the Save Malaysia coalition has dealt a blow to the non-partisan movement seeking a leadership change in Putrajaya, some political observers said.

Despite its frontman and former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s clout, the pundits believe the Save Malaysia campaign is unlikely to gain further support from regular Malaysians due to the conflicting stands adopted by its prominent members comprising activists and politicians from both sides of the divide.

Tahun 2016 umur saya pun sudah 75 tahun.

Saya sedih melihat perpecahan orang Kadazandusun. Pada hari ini terlalu ramai "presiden" orang Kadazandusun. Terlampau banyak parti politik.

Presiden persatuan-persatuan suku kaum Kadazandusun juga semakin ramai. Ini bukan tidak bagus, ada bagus juga tetapi itu kalau ada kesatuan dan kesepakatan.

Church body slams justification of anti-Christian seminar

PETALING JAYA: What has Christianity got to do with the Islamic State (IS) militant group?

That is the question the Council of Churches Malaysia (CCM) has put forward to Higher Education Minister Idris Jusoh, the Malay Mail Online (MMO) reported today.

This was in response to Idris earlier this week, justifying an anti-Christian seminar at the Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) last year as being held to explain the threat of among others, the IS.

Raja Petra: How could BNM miss RM2.6b?

PETALING JAYA, April 7 — Raja Petra Kamaruddin has asked why Bank Negara did not take action against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak three years ago when the RM2.6 billion was first transferred into his personal bank account.

He said Bank Negara must have known about the transfer as even a small amount like RM100,000 brought into the country would not have gone unnoticed or undetected.

“Did the prime minister smuggle the money in hard cash in containers and not declare the amount to Bank Negara? Or was the money openly transferred through regular or normal channels into Najib’s account?” he asked in a post on his blog, The Corridors Of Power.

“If it is the latter, then did Bank Negara not know about it? We are talking about RM2.6 billion. It happened three years ago and why did Bank Negara not block it or take action three years ago?

“Is it because Bank Negara was informed about it and was in the know and actually approved it three years ago? And if so, then why today pretend they were not aware and are blur and do not know what is going on?” 

The blog was hacked on Tuesday after a post on his questions was uploaded but it was up and running after about an hour when Raja Petra changed its server through another country.

“I suspect that was the article that had the anti-Najib people going after me by hacking my server so that readers cannot read it,” he said.
