Hamzah Zainuddin. AWOL.
KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 12): Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin has tested positive for Covid-19 after he underwent a Covid-19 screening yesterday. According to the Home Ministry statement, the result was confirmed by the Ministry of Health (MOH) this morning. The ministry said Hamzah would undergo the recommended treatment and quarantine period and would be closely monitored by the MOH. During the treatment and quarantine period, Hamzah will continue to ensure that all ministry affairs run smoothly from time to time,” read the statement.
Covid 19 save TSMY from an ignominious political end when it gifted him, through a pliant King, with an EMERGENCY. Will Covid19 now fail him?
This morning doctors confirmed that the 64 year old Hamzah Zainuddin’s kidney has failed him.Hamzah Zainuddin is arguably TSMY most senior and trusted confidant. Or, as some hack has uncharitably insisted, Hamzah Zainuddin is TSMY’s Svengali.
These are the latest Covid 19 stats.
What remains to be seen is what the absence of Hamzah Zainuddin physical presence from TSMY’s side, and his inability to manage the political shennanigans that has defined TSMY time in office, will do to the health of TSMY’s Back Door Government!
Will the out of favor Semburit now try to win back the “Senior Minister” mantle that he has deservedly lost to Hamzah Zainuddin? Or Will there be other political pariahs in the BDG who think themselves ready to assume Hamzah’s mantle?
Any which way you want to call it, it is obvious that TSMY is increasingly being isolated by events that have been beyond his ability to control. Events that only ALLAH can determine!
