cakap cakap…for Najib the talking is done
11.45 pm Monday 27th July 2020.
In London in 1961, a brief sex romp between the Secretary of State for War John Profumo and a 19 years aspiring model Christine Keeler contributed to the defeat of the Conservative Party in the 1946 general election. After expressing his deep remorse for his misdeeds, John Profumo quietly continued with his charitable work which was recognized when he was appointed a Companion of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1975. He was later described by Margaret Thatcher as a national hero and was a guest at her 80th birthday celebrations in 2005. His marriage to Valerie Hobson lasted until her death on 13 November 1998, aged 81. Profumo died, aged 91, on 9 March 2006.
I do not see redemption for Najib Razak for what he has done in the name of the government. Tales of misdeeds by men in high public office and then deserved redemption after many years of quietly toiling to redeem themselves are rare and far between. Almost never in Malaysia where money and politics have served to allow corrupt politicians to continue with their misdeeds.
I have waited for this day for over a decade. A day when Najib Razak is totally stripped of all the trappings of high public office when he is denied all the entitlements and privileges that an illustrious lineage had afforded him in life and in office and when even the ill-gotten wealth that he has gathered at our expense will have failed him.
Now all the talking and posturing are done. God help you Najib Razak for nothing else will.
