Hero came lately

Foreign Minister Anifah Aman's statement against Archbishop Marino 15 July 2013

Foreign Minister Anifah Aman’s statement against Archbishop Marino 15 July 2013

Late yesterday evening Foreign Minister Dato’ Seri Anifah Aman issued a statement pertaining to Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Joseph Marino’s interview to The Malaysian Insider which supported Christian Federation of Malaysia’s quest to use ‘Allah’ in place of God as, “Foreign interference”. Now it seems Youth and Sports Minister Khairy “KJ” Jamaluddin wants to play ‘Hero’.

In his statement which was recorded by Bernama this evening, KJ called for Wisma Putra to send a protest note to the Vatican on this Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Marino’s outrageous statement, which Minister in-charge of Islamic Affairs Maj. Gen. (Rtd) Dato’ Seri Jamil Khir Baharom already quipped as “Causing unnecessary anxiety” on Saturday.

The “Thirteen Million Plus Ringgit” question, where was KJ when The Malaysian Insider first published the interview on 11 July 2013?

It is best that KJ stop trying to be a ‘Hero’ in other people’s turf and leave the matter be handled by the professionals and diplomatic career officers in the blue-roofed-top-of-the-hill Federal Government complex in Putrajaya.

KJ’s call for Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission to take action  against ‘Facebook Sexibitionists’ duo Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee is also should be seen as trying to do a showboating after the boat actually left the wharf.  MCMC officers already completed their investigations earlier today and the case may already has been passed to Attorney General’s Chambers for further action.

It is unprofessional trying to get glory based on the perception of over people’s work, if not low. Unless parroting is his best trait.

Corrupta Potentia Praecipuus

FGV CEO-designate Emir Mavani

Incoming and designated FGV CEO Emir Mavani (p.k.a. Pradeeb Kumar) has already shown his susceptibility to make dubious business decisions and transactions on behalf of the Group.  This is not withstanding the tendency to flex and abuse his power even before he formally ascend the Group CEO-ship.

The exposure about his dubious “Ph.D in Government Reforms from Warnborough University, United Kingdom” already hit his credibility and integrity hard. Mavani who has since instructed that all correspondence pertaining to his name, title and qualifications be adjusted according, is said to be bent on ascending the top FGV job.

FGV has been organising a series of Global Strategy Blueprint briefings to internal stakeholders and middle management, region by region. On 27 June, it was held in Senai and 60 managers from the Southern Region attended.

On 1 July, it was held at Felda Sahabat near Lahad Datu, Sabah where 70 managers including Pengarah Seranta FELDA (Director of FELDA Liaisons, Prime Minister’s Office) were present.

The grossly inappropriate bit was that Mavani’s wife Fazdillah Mavani was said to attend these management and global strategy briefings. She is neither a member of the management team nor an employee of FGV. She is not even a hired consultant to FGV. In fact it was said that she raised a question and asked for clarification during one of these briefings.

Unless the appointment letter  as Group CEO FGV issued was for ‘Emir Mavani and Wife’.

Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission should look into this inappropriateness and the purported deal in Papua New Guinea. If it can be proven, then Mavani should be charged for abusing of position and power.

These are very serious matters. Even shareholders raised all these matters in the recent FGV AGM. Shareholders and many of the stakeholders already regard Mavani as a Persona Non Grata.

One cannot imagine what would happen to FGV from today onwards where Mavani is scheduled to take over from Tan Sri Sabri Ahmad as the Group CEO. FGV is supposed to take care the funding for continued development and CSR programs for the 114 FELDA settlements, adjacent communities and 112,635 FELDA settlers’ families.

All of these net-receivers of FGV’s going concern are spread over 54 Parliamentary constituencies and Malay heartland where contributed to the bigger chunk of BN’s powerbase in Semenanjung Malaysia and Sabah.

The confidence level on Mavani taking over from where Sabri left FGV and take care of these strategic stakeholders’ needs without abusing his position and clout for self interest is rather thin. Quod erat demonstratum.
