Hishammuddin….The Journey.

Contributors:- Angus & Natassha continues on Series 3

Born on 5 August 1961, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has all the hallmarks of a potential Prime Minister.

That he has successfully steered away from the current controversies and is safe (at least for now) from darts, arrows and missiles and has not been embroiled in ongoing raging issues shows he has truly come of age as a Malaysian politician.

His portfolios have been nothing but impressive and all have given him the edge over other contenders to take over the helm of government should there be a change of leadership.

His journey to the top (or almost at the top) has been marked by an astounding record of achievement.

Currently, he is Minister of Defence of Malaysia, a portfolio he has been holding since 16 May 2013.

Datuk Seri Hishammuddin was Minister of Home Affairs from 2009 to 2013.

For five years, he was the Minister of Education  from 2004–2009.

Prior to that position, he served as Minister of Youth and Sport (1999–2004).

As acting Minister of Transport (2013–2014), Datuk Seri Hishamuddin achieved international prominence in March 2014, as the minister responsible for investigating the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

His eloquence when contending with questions from international press, his composure when all else seemed to be falling apart, his compassion when dealing with bereaved families left a lasting imprint in the hearts of all who the brilliant manner in which he handled the challenging post-MH 370 scenario.

In terms of organizational structure, as one of the party’s three vice-presidents and former chief of the party’s youth wing from 1998 to 2009, Datuk Seri Hishamuddin is definitely a man of substance within UMNO.

Notwithstanding, he is also the son of Malaysia’s third prime minister, Hussein Onn, and the cousin of the sixth and current prime minister, Najib Razak. His mother, Suhaila Noah, was from an illustrious family and his great-grandmother (mother of Hussein Onn), was a Circassian from Turkey.

With such an impressive background in bloodline and experience, there seems to be only one spot in his record book – the kris waving incident at the 2005 UMNO convention. Through time, it appears this has not been a setback in his political career as he has come forth stronger than before.

When Mahathir made the announcement of his retirement Hishammuddin was pacifying Tun with Rafidah n others. Does this not show he is a favoured one?

angusHe even visited Taib Mahmud and when he went back to peninsular he was down with heart problems. Does this also mean that he is not destined?

Najib does not want Hishammuddin to be in front yet or else he too will be brought down.

Yet, the question remains. Why is Najib keeping Hishamuddin in the shadows?

As a dark horse, given the experience and breeding he has, Hishamuddin may just race to the
front and overtake all other contenders to the PM’s position.

We will have to wait and see.

“Correct,Correct.Correct..!!”

On one side of the coin the people are blaming the ruling BN Government for the price increases on the petrol,diesel,Liquified petroleum Gas(LPG) and sugar. On the flip side some are also finding fault at the whole world economy which has spiral down and has affected the country. It is so easy to pinpoint faults at BN/Pakatan but the reality does sink in especially for the people on the street and working for the daily earnings.

Has overpolitiking affected both political divide until they drive each other up the wall..??  Both coalition  are so afraid of each others shadows and it needed a “Saint” Idris Jala now to inform the public of the true picture.

He is not even a politician belonging to any political party but a Corporate Man ropped in by the Government and he has no qualms but to blast it out that Malaysia may go bankrupt by 2019 if things are not checked.

Paul the Octopus a media darling now is overused and he might be stressed/burnt  out sooner than expected. We have turned to PETER the Electric Octopus to WAKE UP THE WHOLE COUNTRY TO THE REALITIES WHICH MALAYSIA NEEDS TO FACE.

Both sides of the divide needs to find a solution and deliberate it in Parliament and get to the bottom of it all. Believe it or not an EMPTY GAS CYLINDER 5 years ago costs $40 as deposit. Now for new house owners/shops/vendors the price for deposit for a similar cylnder is at M$120. Even your favourite coffee with sugar will soon see an increase of at least 10cents to 20 cents.

“DOMINO EFFECT…SURELY…NO..!!”

Lingam would have told you that its correct,correct,correct especially for too much sugar,sugar,sugar will have detrimental effect on your health.

AFTER ALL IT’S JUST GAS….PLEASE BE SERIOUS .. IT’S NOT A JOKE..??

PETER.. ELECTRIFIED US..!!

We were just a few metres away from the Incident at No.10A Crookshank Road. Miraculous escape from the Uncle standing to open the door for his grandson and the two ladies who were in the Perodua Myvi. The driver of the Wira said to audie61..It was just like the movies’ Tornado- seeing a car flung into the sky and on top of my car. The lady driver said she cannot recall how it happened and also,” I was not on the handphone. I hit some loose stones on the road and also the fire hydrant and thats why the car flew..”

Wow! Im lucky and so are all of us. No one is hurt and THANK  GOD. Just has to happen at 10-A after the MCA EGM dramatic result..hmmmm

Cute..M$720 Million Refund

HellOooo..Am I Missing Somethinggggg..?? Would you just believe this? We made a mistake we are overcharged and now we need a refund. WHAT TYPE OF ADMINISTRATION IS THIS…?? Do you honestly think that the people are FOOLS. Even if they are they cannot be cheated over and over again and again. A fool today might just wake up to make you the GREATEST FOOL that ever lived. Please be more realistic. You made the mistake you pay for it. Get the Drift..Or am I telling it to a BLOCKHEAD…

The Port Klang Authority (PKA) today sued Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) for RM720 million, a sum which the contractor allegedly overcharged for the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) project.

The suit was filed at the Shah Alam High Court this morning by PKA chairperson Lee Hwa Beng, who is the plaintiff on behalf of PKA.

lee hwa beng pkfz pc 210509 02In a statement today, Lee said PKA is seeking a declaration that interest charged on the balance purchase price of the land purchase was wrongly imposed.

He said KDSB had sold the land to PKA at RM1.088 billion at the rate of RM25 per square foot on a “special value” basis in addition to interest being charged.

“Interest ought not to have been charged separately and/or in addition to the said RM25 per square foot”, said Lee.

PKA is also seeking the court’s intervention and rectification of its schedule of payment to KDSB, as well as a refund of the interest payments made thus far.

Lee added that PKA’s decision to sue KDSB was made even before the establishment of the ‘super’ task force established by the Cabinet to probe the PKFZ scandal.

Lee warns that other suits would be filed for fraudulent, wrongful or irregular claims but did not name the parties concerned.

KDSB is the turnkey developer of the PKA owned multi-billion ringgit PKFZ flop, prompting the government to engage PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to perform an audit on the project.

Following the publication of PwC’s report in May, KDSB filed a defamation suit against PKA and the auditor for defamatory comments found in the report.

Amongst others, the PwC report claims that KDSB ‘may have’ overcharged PKA in the land purchase and overpriced the value of its works. WHO IS TO BE BLAMED..Have You Made up YOUR MIND..???

What the Hell is Wrong with Our Mentality,Blind Spot and T-A-T??

The last few days we have been receiving e-mails from various sources telling us to blog on a number of local issues. What we are about to reveal will need immediate swift reaction and solutions as this involves government departments. Sad to say even an Asst. Minister in the CM’s office was quoted and reminded the civil servants also not to act as “Little Napoleans“. The tax payers money in keeping those who are nesting in these departments will be futile and wasted if procedures and turn around time(TAT) is above normal.

Incident No.1 on MPP gets tough with “slow contactors”. The full report can be read in Borneo Posts page 4. What we are saying is that ,”How come the Engineer in question only informed in the full council meeting?” Doesn’t this make a mockery of the system of tender and distribution of works? Who actually monitors which,how and who the contactors are reliable? Bad news and this must not happen in both Pakatan or BN led governments. The people expect development funds and projects to be carried out in the specified time and not dilly-dally.

This is the 21st century and if the mentality of our professionals in government departments remains lacklustre where are we heading? Are we too afraid to make complains ? If we do are we singled out as not government friendly? A lame excuse by the MPP Chairman in respect of blaming the contactor as reported should never ever be used. There are so many training and programmes the government servants attend and do they need to be tutored this,” Implementation Process…??””

Incident No.2 Ever since Sesco changed its name to Sarawak Energy the Ooomph pah pah seems to have disappeared into thin air. A number of complains especially with regards to street lightings will have now to take 48 hours to implement from the time of complain. 

Procedurely this is what actually happens,” The operator will ask,”Where is the place.? Who is complaining? Whats your telephone number and at the end “I’ll file the complain with the contractor.” A complaint was lodged by a houseowner at Taman Riveria at 20.48 and he waited and waited for action to arrive.

Unfortunatedly, nothing was done. What irked him was he needed to switch all his lights on as a deterrent for would be burglars. He said,Am I not paying for the street lights too?” He called again the next day,” We are looking into it was the answer until he fumed and they say 48 hours” He told audie61 Sarawak’s crime index is not actually very low is it with a bit of sarcasm added? He even said why not the CEO try this to find out whether his man are doing their job.

To make matters worse a houseowner in the area thought he found the solution to the problem. He said he knows so and so and called him at 3.00pm. Guess what the answer was? Mr.So and So has gone for TEABREAK at 3.00pm sharp. Hahaha is this how to get the boss in trouble? Certainly the face of SHOCKED was apparent and he was of course very very happy hik hik hik. This is not a JOKE and it reflects what the mentality of our governement system and the TAT is now. The PM’s department or the CM’s department should serioulsy look into these woes faced byt the TAXPayers and a lot of them out there are suffering SILENTLY with these attitudes of our LITTLE  NAPOLEANS.

By tthe way this above incident was also related to the relevant political parties involved in BN and Pakatan group. The YB’s P.A of the constituency was informed,DAP assembly man for Batu Lintang and also PKR information chief .This is not only a political issue and if the CRIME INDEX are to be lowered all relevant authorities needs to work as a TEAM and not push the monkey around to the delight of the would be BURGLARS.

We would have thought that the MBKS cutting tree incident which we covered a couple of months ago was bad enough but this by another Asst.Minister of Infraatructure Development who was shocked that eventhough contracts are awarded they are yet to be implemented. Quoting him,”The contract works awarded is two months and with only a mont left,there is still no sigh of any work being done.” He pointed out that any works awarded it was the responsibility of the contactors to ensure that any project is carried out according to specifications and completed within schedule.”

What is going on? If the contactors have too many projects there are others who are more than willing to take over if they are awarded? Whose fault is this? This goes to show the implementation process is not adhered to and there is a flaw in the system. It needs to be corrected and quickly before the ROOTS ARE TOO DEEP

It should not be the I’m paid by the government how much and Im only doing this much. The politicians knows what needs to be done and how to push it and this few incidents are not too kind on a few people but we are not a charitable blog. We are with the people,by the people and for the people blog and we will get to the bottom of the TRUTH.

ACTIONS speaks louder than words. I remember one incident many years back when AnAsst.Minister true to his words had the Kuching Mayor immediatedly down to Tabuan Laru to see a problem with the grasscutters dumpng the cut grass in the drain. The reaction from the houseowners in that area was overwhelming for the Asst.Minister. Of course its not his area of constituency but being an Asst Minister is not only for that ministry but its a Sarawak Ministerial Appointment. Is this one BLIND SPOT that needs to be addressed…?

The thing with mosts of our Ministers is that they are too afraid to step outside of their jurisdiction and also are afriad of incuring the wrath of the YBs in the constituencies. Need I elaborate here.?? Better not as the Ministers/Asst.Ministers might get offended but  they know themselves.

We say as always,”Let’s see some actions shall we..?????

We Told You So…..

Yesterday we posted the article RM$ 1Billion goodies  we mentioned Sarawakians are really peeved with having to pay 40 per cent more for petrol and are anticipating a spike in the price of goods and services. Whats more…? We went on to say that Sarawak’s Land size is so huge and it will not be easy to penalise the offenders by the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs.

Guess What happened..? Hasbi Ali ( BKPB’s officer-in-charge ), led a group of seven officers in a 10am raid from Bahagian Kawal Selia Padi Dan Beras (BKPB) and the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (DTCA) made a lightning swoop at a supermarket in Sibu.  The culprit who committed the offence would eventually be charged for deceiving the consumers by selling rice at marked up prices. Is this a call by Malaysiakini’s report on your say on, ”PM we’ll do everything to ease the Rakyats burden.” 

The Charge…..Offenders would be charged under the Control of Padi and Price 1884,Act 522. A first time individual offender, if guilty, could be fined not exceeding RM15,000 and two years’ imprisonment while a repeat offender may be fined the maximum RM25,000 and five years’ imprisonment.For companies, the first time offenders may be fined up to the maximum RM25,000 while repeat offenders may be fined up to RM50,000.

So it’s Your CHOICE. We Have ……….”WARNED YOU and DO NOT OVERCHARGED THE RAKYAT”. Hasbi said there will be more raids against this unethical practice and the officers will not only concentrate in the main towns and cities of Kuching,Sibu,Sri Aman,Miri,Limbang but also cover places like Sarikei, Mukah,Kanowit,Song,Niah and even as far as Lawas. The public just needs to inform us…..and “WE WILL DO IT………………..!!!”
