Politics is a Very Lucrative Career in Malaysia

Sarawak Report had said that the treasures worth at least RM1.1 billion found at Najib Razak-linked properties are just petty cash – compared to the real hoard which is safely locked up elsewhere. 

Obviously, not in Malaysia. 

On Sunday, Sarawak Report blasted out the news that according to a source with business connections to Najib and Rosmah Mansor (right) – that to their “certain knowledge” deals they have information on amounted to considerably over RM100 billion in profits – and which had been banked abroad. 

The source said they were personally involved in stashing much of the money into mainstream accounts in Hong Kong. 

And I venture to add that it is likely to be elsewhere as well. 

This gives us much reason to try to retrieve as much of the loot as possible – here and everywhere – because it belongs to the Malaysian people.

Even UMNO president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is super wealthy beyond belief. 

Mahathir Mohamad on August 01, 2017 had claimed that Zahid himself revealed that he had RM230 million in his bank account, allegedly when declaring his assets in 1996. 

“He explained that the money came from his businesses and, although I had my doubts, I had no proof then”, said Mahathir. 

Four days later, news portal Astro Awani reported that Zahid had made an admission that he was a successful businessman and hence did not see anything wrong with having the money in his account as it was all legitimate. 

I am sure Malaysians too would like to know how is it that he could amass so much wealth. What business(es) did he dabbled in that permitted him to rake in hundreds of millions of ringgit?

More so, when he admitted at that point in time that he was just an UMNO Youth leader and had no position in the government. 

I guess if we aspire to be super rich, we should get into politics! 

And don’t forget the story that Zahid – or rather he had put the blame on his aide  as being the person who had used charity funds to pay credit card debts that he and his wife (right) had accrued that allegedly amounted to RM800,000! 

[Of course, he explained it away as “an honest mistake” because the Yayasan Akal Budi paymaster should have issued a cheque from Zahid’s personal account – rather than using the charity fund's money. 

And he added: “However, I would like to make it clear that I’ve used my personal money and paid back all the money mistakenly used from the foundation without following SOP”].

Whatever lah but for him and his wife to accumulate RM800,000 in credit card bills is really an indication that he has the capacity to pay and the fact that money is really coming out of his ears. 

Politics is a very lucrative career!
