I am back after a week’s off from writing. I haven’t had much time reading the blogs either; but what struck me most upon reading the Star Online this morning is the report which says that the MACC has completed its investigation on former Selangor MB Khir Toyo on the alleged misuse of public funds for trips made overseas with his family (including an Indonesian maid), amounting to more than RM 1 million.
Now, what about the multi-million ringgit home that Khir Toyo built? Let us hope the MACC has not over looked this, and to start digging deep into the source of money to built the house. I have not heard much from him these days in the mainstream media, and it is better for him to remain quiet, rather than to start another row with the PKR Selangor state government. The more he speaks, the more ‘skeletons’ appears out of his hidden closet.
I am glad that MACC has finally completed the investigation on Khir Toyo, and if the allegation proves to be true, let us hope that he gets the justice that he truly deserves.
Someone called me yesterday to say that there has been a talk that a recently retired Chief of Defence Force (CDF) is likely to take up the appointment of the Malaysian Ambassador to a European country. Who could this person be, and if this rumour is true, it does not surprise me because there has been several senior military officers who were appointed ambassadors in the past; the last being the former Chief of Army Tan Sri Gen Md. Hashim Hussein who was the nation’s ambassador to the Pakistan.
News out of Army Headquarters is that the present Chief of Army (COA) is scheduled to take his pre-retirement leave, and this would mean that army will get a new COA before September this year, and hopefully the replacement will be the incumbent Deputy COA.
I have been receiving many calls alluding to the article that I wrote regarding to my choice of the Deputy COA. I am convince with the choice of either one of the two (refer to my earlier writing of the subject), and the choice is overwhelming judging from the responses that I get.
I hope my speculation on the new line-up for the army 2010 following the retirement of the COA is correct.
