Too Old and Forgetful? – Taib Forgets his Own Businesses!

Too Old and Forgetful? – Taib Forgets his Own Businesses!

This post is also available in: Iban, Malay

Losing his memory and forgetting his businesses?

Taib Mahmud has been forced onto the defensive throughout the first first week of his election campaign, as he has fought to shake off allegations of landgrabs, corruption, nepotism and the siphoning out Sarawak’s wealth into foreign banks, businesses and property companies.

His advisers had insisted that he face up and address these issues to restore his credibility with outraged voters.  A strategy was devised with a series of staged video interviews answering pre-prepared questions by friendly reporters (including one hired by a foreign PR company).  The edited answers were then put onto Taib’s flock of new websites in an attempt to win back ground in the ‘cyber-war’

Better to have kept silent?

Facing up to the criticism - or just digging in deeper?

However, the old boy is clearly uncomfortable in the unfamiliar role of answering ‘tough’ questions on subjects he would far rather ignore like deforestation, his own wealth and the problems of native land owners – and the result has been a series of calamitous mistakes!

In the latest clanger Taib once again tried to put to rest allegations that his children and family have benefited from his money and political patronage.  However, his extraordinary excuses raised suspicions of impending senility and forgetfulness:

“My children are well-educated, they have gone to do business outside.  I had to do business outside more than 30 years ago.  Simple reason is I don’t want conflict of interest to haunt me all the time.  [if] I do business inside the country, people will say I use my influence to enrich myself, so we did it outside the country”

What the old man seems to have forgotten, but the rest of Sarawak will definitely have not, is that his family and in particular his own children, DO own huge amounts of business in Sarawak.  What’s more, most of that business was ‘privatised’ from the State of Sarawak into the hands of those family concerns by Taib himself and these businesses mainly benefit from the huge government contracts Taib makes sure always come the way of his family businesses!

Starting with CMS and moving on to Titanium Management! 

 

No business in Sarawak? - The old boy forgot about the largest firm in the state, CMS, which belongs to his own family!

The tame interviewer, brought all the way over from the UK, was not being paid to do follow-up questions, otherwise he would have asked “But what about CMS and Titanium Management?!”.

Cahya Mata Sarawak is now Sarawak’s largest company and a major player in Malaysia – involved in businesses ranging from building to banking. 

So who are its largest shareholders?   They are, of course, the members of Taib’s own immediate family.  In fact, according to the company’s latest on-line Annual Report for 2009 the biggest shareholder of all is dead – it is Taib’s own late wife Laila!  She owned a massive 11.23% of the company’s shares worth RM 94 million.

 

"If I do business inside the country people will say I use my influence to enrich myself" - Taib obviously discounted his own wife and children from this principle.

The other top shareholders are his two sons Abu Bekir and Sulaiman, followed by his two daughters Jamilah and Hanifah, who jointly own the company Majaharta.  So what on earth did Taib mean when he claimed that he and his children have taken so much care to do business only abroad ?  And what fiction does he expect the voters to believe about his ex-wife being the top shareholder of the company?!

From the latest CMS Annual Report - The new DUN building, contracted from CMS

Taib ‘privatised’ business after business from the state into the hands of his own company CMS from the moment he took power. 

Likewise, he privatised the crucial monopoly over shipping licences into the hands of another family company Achi Jaya (run by his brother and business partner Onn Mahmud).  These abuses of power have lain at the foundation of his family’s wealth alongside all the money he has taken from businessmen looking for timber and plantation concessions. 

Voters will therefore be left wondering whether Taib is now bordering on senile to forget such things as this when he proclaimed in his interview that “I had to do business outside” [the country].

Taib abuses his decision-making role to enrich CMS

Far from avoiding conflict of interest, readers need only glance at the on-line CMS Annual Report 2009 to gain an understanding of how Taib has indeed thoroughly exploited his various key positions as Chief Minister, Finance Minister and Resources and Planning Minister to make sure that state money pours into his own family company. 

 

Conflict of Interest - another huge contract given by Taib to his family company, the Borneo Convention Centre

Taib had the cheek to entitle his on-line cyber-movie “Financial Transparency in Sarawak”, but in fact all the key contracts are ‘negotiated’ behind closed doors and in secret.  Time and again this is because, as the CMS Annual Report 2009 clearly illustrates, Taib has ended up negotiating with himself!

In one year alone State mega-contracts handed to CMS have included the new State Parliament Building, worth RM 296.5 million; the new Borneo Convention Centre, worth RM 195 million; the new Sarawak Energy Head Quarters, worth RM 232 million and a bridge over the Batang Strap Waterway, worth RM 20 million.

How could Taib have forgotten all these when he claimed to the foreign newsman that he had so carefully avoided conflict of interest in Sarawak?!

Son is a top Sarawak businessman !

Until Taib decided to put up his son Abu Bekir for a seat at this coming State Election, he had always maintained that his oldest son was too interested in business to get into politics.  But where is this business conducted? 

Keep open your copy of the on-line CMS Annual Report for 2009 to find out.  Abu Bekir may also have activities outside of Sarawak, but the extent of his interests within Sarawak are jaw-dropping.  Not only is he on the Board of Directors of CMS, but he has numerous other businesses, which all benefit from the patronage of Taib in his role of Chief Minister.

CMS 2009 Annual Report. Taib's son, Abu Bekir Taib, is a major Sarawak Businessman - so what does Taib mean that his children went to do business abroad to avoid being 'haunted' by accusations of conflict of interest?

Not only is Abu Bekir Deputy Group Chairman of CMS (the Chairman is his brother in law, sister Hanifah’s husband), he is also Chairman and major shareholder of Sarawak Cable.  He is also the Director and major shareholder of the private company Titanium Management, a company that has caused outrage because of the vast contracts it received from Taib Mahmud soon after incorporation, without any appropriate track record.

Yet another mega-project handed to CMS in 2009

The biggest scandal was the state-funded contract to build 384 bridges for RM 551 million.  Not only did Titanium fail to deliver all the bridges, but it ran into a 76% cost over-run totalling RM 947.8 million, which Daddy Taib generously agreed the State should pay out on! 

Land Grabs too

Titanium Management and its subsidiary companies have also been one of the main benefactors of the land-grabs carried out by Taib Mahmud’s BN government.  Abu Bekir has recieved lands (many of them in Native Customary Land areas) totalling an area greater than Singapore, according to our researches of the land records.

The decisions to hand the land to Abu Bekir’s companies were made behind doors and not through any form of transparent open tender and they were made by Taib Mahmud.  Little Abu Bekir was not forced to pay either for these lands, because he received them as ‘Payment in Kind’. 

So, what can the old man have been thinking, when he claimed there has been no conflict of interest with his family doing business in Sarawak?  Everyone in the whole state knows otherwise!

Hangers on, like Awang Tengah

 

Awang Tengah - Taib's favourite No 2 in Resources and Planning

Meanwhile, of course there is the continuing scandal of Taib’s Plantation pay-offs to keep ministers and cronies supportive.  The latest conflict of interest involving political partners of Taib Mahmud to emerge from our research of the land records (which we have now placed online for all to see) is the vast holding he has handed to his favoured 2nd Minister in the State Planning and Resource Ministery, Awang Tengah.

Tengah, who has issued many stern statements concerning the right of the State Government to ‘alienate’ Native Customary Rights Lands in past weeks, has been the fortunate beneficiary of over 6,000 hectares of land in Balai Ringin.  The person registered as the recipient of the land in the land register is his known assistant, Awang Matusin Awang Drahman. 

Awang Tengah's share of the action - half of the ownership goes to Naroden Majais

Locals in Balai Ringin have been contacting Sarawak Report asking desperately for help to protect these lands from the rapacious YB, so once again Taib’s ‘policies of development’ are bringing misery and anger, not the prosperity he claims in his set piece interviews. 

The shareholder of United Teamtrade Sdn Bhd, turns out again to be Awang’s assistant (Awang Matusin) and a company we exposed yesterday, called WFM Development.  WFM Development is in turn owned by the assistant of another wealthy YB, whom we exposed yesterday as another major landgrabber, Naroden Majais.

More land grabs by Ministers - United Teamtrade is owned by the assistants of Awang Tengah and Naroden Majais - could they be holding the land for their own boss Taib Mahmud?

It seems the more Taib says the more he exposes his own corruption.  Better keep quiet Taib!

    The more Taib opens his mouth, the more he reveals – I mean revealing his dark side.

    Keep talking, Taib. We'll uncover more discrepancies and expose them. Thanks for voluntarily helping us out.

      But what MACC failed to do is to investigate TAIB MAHMUD with his cronies,having fat bank accounts abroad and big beautiful bungalow which is way beyond their means if they are to rely on the Salaries.

  • Proud Sarawakian

    fellow sarawakians … anyone familiar with our constitution/law about FIRING politician from their elected position? it's ridiculous that he hasn't done one of the following:

    1) resign in disgrace

    2) run away and hide in some far away land

    3) impeached by us

    in a land with REAL law and order, he would have been subjected to independent scrutiny and explain himself to a neutral committee. why on earth is he still allowed to run for the next election?

    • http://sarawakreport JBJ Sabah

      to: proud sarawakian and all concerned: many Sabahans are 100% behind you all, I've these suggestions…no time to waste, there are 2 things you all 'must do' immediately, its NOW or NEVER:(1)get all the proof written above by hook or by crook, make police report and then report to MACC(sprm), all of the above are enough to have a solid case. (2) with the 2 reports + the stories above about Taib's evil deeds, arrange quickly to go to the voters in remote places, must cover all, even to Taib's strongholds and you all could tell them that tsunamis are about to destroy the Taib's regime and those who are with him would be in trouble!

      You all must sacrifice, have a fighting chance, be brave bcos of TRUTH, bcos these pariahs dont own Sarawak and they think they can do anything as they like to enrich themselves, how can thieves, crooks and liars be ur leaders?? Teach them and the BN/dUMbNO a lesson!! gd luck!

      • Proud Sarawakian

        Thanks Sabah for the suggestions but I believe reports have been launched against him in numerous ways and by numerous people (Sarawak Report, can you guys investigate into this and share with readers what have been reported and to which govt agencies … MACC, police, etc.).

        I hope one day, Sarawak and Sabah will leave Malaysia. No point sacrificing our forest and soil to pay for their evil deeds.

        • Anonymous

          @Proud Sarawakian: Leave Malaysia?

          Sarawakians have been voting for Taib and gang for 30 years!

          Why do you think it will make a difference whether Sarawak leaves Malaysia or not, if S

          arawakians keep voting for Taib for the next 30 years?

          Yes us in the peninsular are partly to blame (since we have reelected BN for decades too), but Sarawak is in the hands of Sarawak voters, who have kept reelecting Taib.

          If you have not realized already, BN did lose some states in Peninsular Malaysia, but they kept Sarawak BECAUSE OF SARAWAK VOTERS. If BN had lost Sarawak (or Sabah), BN would likely have lost the majority in Parliament.

          So stop implying that the rest of Malaysia is mainly to blame for the problems in Sarawak.

        • Proud Sarawakian

          Reasons to leave Malaysia:

          1) Look at Singapore who realized since the beginning the fallacy of some fundamental values that Malaysia was founded on. Now, that tiny island enjoys racial harmony, religious pluralism, efficiency in all sectors, skilled workers and globally respected. Does Singapore have natural resources of any substantial value to depend on? Common, they even have to import water!

          2) Sarawak has been plundered for decades. During the course of BN/UMNO rule ALL THIS WHILE, don't tell me no one in federal government knew about our plight. Blame Sarawak voters for it? How about blaming the systematic abuse of power to suppress transparency and freedom to oppose peacefully? How about blaiming the cooperation between the corrupt leaders from both sides? Yes, ordinary Sarawakians share the blame … no doubt. Please! Some of us don't even have access to electricity and water. Some kids walk for hours (one-way) to school. They can only concern themselves with subsitence. Where were our fellow-countrymen to help give us do a fair fight? But now that the general masses have awaken, there's no benefit to be a part of Malaysia right? Maybe someone can kindly name a few reasons why Sarawak should remain in Malaysia? Where are the police, MACC and other agencies that were established to protect the rakyat?

          3) 1Malaysia is an empty promise benefiting none. Ordinary Malays, Dayaks, Chinese,Indian, and other races don't feel they are better off under this 1Malaysia banner. Sarawakians do not need a banner to live in harmony because we already have it. It comes naturally to us. We don't have teacher that tells Chinese to go back to China do we? No thanks, keep your racism in Semenanjung.

          4) The issues relating to religious injustice (bible detention, the use of certain word, etc.). Again, no thanks and please keep your religious-singularity bias there.

          5) We don't wish to continue funding mega structures in Semenanjung. How long more do we expect villagers and natives in Sarawak to sacrifice their land, hence their livelihood, in order to build useless malls and structures? You want it, you finance 100% of it yourself. I am sure Semenanjung can afford it. Definitely not with our land and our natural resources.

          I am sure other pissed-off Sarawakians can add to my list above. Counter-arguments welcomed.

    Don't be fooled by Taib. He maybe old but I doubt he's suffering from "senility syndrome". He's cunning as an old dog. Old dogs may look placid but when comes to push and shove, they will fight back and bite!

    Taib can't tell the differences between truths and lies now because he's been lying all these time as CM!

  • tsunami final asshol

    Taib @ Taik Mammoth. The more he open his mouth, the more shit came out. The more he open his mouth, the more senile he became. Why? Simply because he is suffering from greed and corrupt syndrome which mean he realized that he is suffering from slow but sure death. Looking at his photo, there is a clear sign that he will die one day……. and leaving behind a rather young wife…hahahahaha… than his wife will become JANDA ….

    “It is no good at all to conjure all sorts of reasons to explain away truth:

    One could subscribe to truth only when one has self-respect in the first place;

    When a man tells untruths, he has no respect for himself and little would he do better for others except for his own gain;

    And when a man tells lies, he has a tendency to forget:

    With one lie after the other, eventually he would be caught in his own tangled web”

    But will he want to step down?? Obviously NO.

    • Cirrus Cumullus

      Yes big Bro,

      That's the beautiful part, if we have the choice of having a good alternative to the usual path that we are used to or something that we usually have known. If only SR can be reached by those who didn't have any internet access, the bigger wiser population we can be, the better future we can crave. Those who only digests to the one side of stories, have only got themselves to blame for their naivety and shallowed minds, apart from having their own piece of share. These group of people (BN hardcore supporters) have nowhere to turn to once they learned on what they have been believing in all those while were nothing but all lies and distortions in promoting and protecting the devilish power to its ultimate prowess.

      On this War of Words, we, the rakyats have nothing to loose, no worries about that. What each of us needs is a piece of a critical and mindful thinking. Sure, all SR supporters does.

      On the other hand, this people in power will have so much to loose, especially if they only have a single track of mind. The more they talks, the more they will expose of their weaknesses and guilts. And again, if they didn't respond to the allegations against them, than it's all true and appropriate actions should be taken against them.

  • CWS

    Mr. Taib, it's easy really. If you think SR has libeled or slandered you and your family, file a police report and hire the best lawyers you can afford and sue SR for ga-zillions of RM. After all, your honesty and integrity is at risk. You don't want the rakyat to think you're a crook, right? The police and MACC will then do a THOROUGH investigation into the said libels and slanders and if found to be fake, then you can take appropriate action against SR.

    Unfortunately, the fact that you haven't taken such action even though the reports have been out for months leaves much to be desired and is highly suspicious.

    Sawarak elections are just a couple of weeks away and I do hope you will do something to clear your name if you don't want to lose voters. Take the first step, Mr. Taib and file a police report.

      40 years ago, S$1.00= M$0.99. 40 years later, S$1.00= RM2.45. No matter how many times you change the design of the RM, it remains less & less in value.

      Singaporean told Malaysian: "Brother, our money never increase the value, only that your money decrease in value". Why? Because we have invested too much in foreigh countries and the "We" suddenly changed to "He" meaning that "our money" has been changed to "His money" and never come back again.

  • Yes Sir

    As a government servant, Pehin should not use his office hours to do other business which has nothing to do with Sarawak.

    How to use his limited remuneration to do investment in mega projects in Canada is a very big question mark. CAD$1.00= RM3.10 is not easy to make a personal savings to do investment in Canada.

    I am quite interest to know how Pehin Taib could do such a business magic by earning few billion Canadian dollars in just a short period.

    Anyone can give me the right answer?

      That is if your are willing to sell your soul to his family..you are in it.

    TAIB MAHMUD ini lebih teruk daripada Syaitan!

  • Ah Khoo & Juwat

    From the smallest government tenders for class 'E' contractors to the mega millions tenders for class 'A' contractors, all being brokered and 'bolot' by Taib's related companies especially CMS as if they are the state government GLCs. In Peninsular, only government GLCs were given such an exclusive precedence.

    1. If they were the GLCs, they should contribute at least 43 % of their profits to the rakyats. Shares ownership should be of at least 43 % to the government and not wholly owned by Taib's family members.

    2. He said '' Tenders were opened and awarded to highly capable bidders base on meritocracy ground'' If so, why even less high tech maintenance works such as Grass cutting, garbage collecting, small village projects and etcs still being brokered and 'bolot' by CMS, PPES and other Taib's related companies?

    Common people, lets us wake up our poor and naive fellows from their deep slumber. Start with distributing these exclusive exposures to them.

          Tuai Rumah, I would always buy the genuine and honest cause of struggle for the people of Sarawak. We have tried to believe and understand what SNAP really afford to do for us. It's sad but true that only SNAP is the party that represent the origins the roots of Sarawak in the PR. But it's also not the time for any PR's parties to show that they are more hero than the others. It's also an open secret that ROS had continuously ignored the registration of Sarawak base parties especially the dayak base opposition parties as in the case of Malaysian Dayak Congress (MDC) to keep the Dayaks scattered and leaving them with little choices, but mostly subjected to being the so called 'fixed Deposit' One of the situations systematically designed by BN.

          It's good to argue, since we didn't have the common understanding, especially with SNAP tainted past.

          But somehow keep up an open mind. Respond to all the doubts hurled at you honestly, precisely and amicably. It's time for us to rendezvous and not scattered. My solution on PKR/SNAP tug of war are:

          1. Both parties be given equal number of seats (just in case, we just don't know)

          2. Candidates from both PKR and SNAP to be nominated to stand for the 10 th SE, Should sign an agreement, that the seat that they have won (if it's as such) should be left vacant, to enable by- election, if the particular candidate cross-party, except maybe if amongst opposition. They also should be made liable of being charge in the court of law.

          Wishes All the best to PR – Whatever it is, ALWAYS VOTE FOR DAP, SNAP, PKR and PAS.

      dear Tuai rumah,

      SNAP has lost its credibility to fight for the Sarawakians, not because SNAP is bad and has lost its original visions when it was first founded. Its likened to a racing boat whose paddlers are "nyunyok" greedy nincompoops whose lust for money brings out crab mentality that produces too many captains.There is nothing wrong with SNAP per see. Ethnic and race based political parties in Malaysia will be things of the past.Racial and ethnic politics has failed and will not work in Malaysia, but instead has created so much divisions in the nation.Its time that you smart Dayaks to think and change your political mind set.to be contd.

      • Apai

        Sarawak at the moment have no race base party. All stand for multiracial background. Different in semananjung as they are base on racial politics since day one the formation of the federation of malaya. Here, we got SNAP, PKR, DAP, PAS, SPDP, PRS, PBB, SUPP, are all multi racial base which is good for Malaysia and Sarawak. Truely 1 Malaysia right!

        So here, we are talking about dayak's should not circum to race base politics? I do agree at some point but dismiss some because we are weak socially and time and time again we are easy lunch by others as history tells. We are easy to believe what other people say but brush aside what our own people say even if that's the best option of the day. Are we brave just to confront our own kind and shy away when confronting others? We can curse our own kind dawn to dawn for what we feel was wrongly done by them even if they have some exceptable reason but never curse others for what they have done equally wrong.

        Here we are again shouting for change given this is the best opportunity for change. Are we shouting from the correct spot or the wrong spot? Good news for now we finally realise we are being marginalise. The fact that we need to know here is we should UNITE UNDER ONE UMBRELLA. It's very frustrating to know that we are still supporting other party lead by other people. Are we being make use off by others for their own agenda? Are we being trick by others because they are smarter than us, form a multiracial party and dupe us to support them in the name of brushing aside racism?

        To me if we are smart and UNITED under our own identity, we can equally do the same to attract others to join our fight. Why follow others when we know that chances is, they might betray us along the way.

(2) with the 2 reports + the stories above about Taib's evil deeds, arrange quickly to go to the voters in remote places, must cover all, even to Taib's strongholds and you all could tell them that tsunamis are about to destroy the Taib's regime and those who are with him would be in trouble!

    You all must sacrifice, have a fighting chance, be brave bcos of TRUTH, bcos these pariahs dont own Sarawak and they think they can do anything as they like to enrich themselves, how can thieves, crooks and liars be ur leaders?? Teach them and the BN/dUMbNO a lesson!! gd luck!

    Vote Out Taib & his ministers.

    Let all of them die in prison.If BN lose, then the PR government will take all their wealth inside & outside Malaysia & use that money todevelop Sarawakians.

    If all their wealth were to be taken back to Sarawakians, then we Sarawakians will be as rich as Singaporeans or Bruneians.and sarawak will be more developed that some states in West Malaysia.

    Taib & BN ministers wre making a full of their own rakyat by telling that Sarawak is well developed & the rate of poverty had decreased. What a Lair.You Taib & your ministers have lied to Sarawakian & BN leaders in West malaysia. In actual fact Sarawak is the poorest state in Malaysia BUT with the richest ministers in Malaysia or some are one of the richest in the world.

    SO. BEWARE OF THIS BLOOD SUCKERS LEAD BY TAIB MAHMUD.

    One thing I like about Awang Tengah, he is a true leader of his tribe. It seems most of his assets being registered under his assistant @ cronies, particularly those that carries the title AWANG! I bet you all that when this guy finally take over the leadership, more AWANGs will pop-up like mushroom. Be it amongst the cabinet members or Head of Department and of course not forgetting, the newly established Malay tycoon. Since that is the case, I guess I better change my name to Awang as well. After all this so called tribe is the real master of Sarawak, or do they?

    • http://none Watch Dog

      We have had enough of foreigner becoming our leader and dictating us. Isn't he from Brunei??

      Where are the Malays in Sarawak? Where are you 'ABANG' group? Are you all still alive or just scared to be the leader and just be the followers too?

      Where are the natives like Jabu,Masing,Manyin and Mawan?? What a former CIVIC teacher becoming another Thief Minisyter of Sarawak? By teaching civic in school ,he should know what is right and wrong or morally wrong but now he does NOT know. I do NOT want Awang Tanah to become another Thief Minister.

      We need a new CHIEF MINISTER.

      • http://google cucuk.belian

        I dont think ABANG group could survive Taib onslaught. See what happened to Dato' Abang Abu previously? Remember what happened to Dato' Abang Jo right after he won the battle against Dato' Adenan Satem few years back?

        The same incident happened to Tun Jugah descendent, I believe! His son and cucuk suppose to be influential and should command leadership by now, but see how Taib handle all these group?

        That was their game plan right from the start, from Tun Rahman time and continued by Taib.

        If the original Malay of Sarawak plus the real descendent of Dayak leader failed to realise all these simple plan, we will never go anywhere! Why? Coz kita urang Sarawak masih taksub dengan wilayah, Melayu Kuching lah, Melayu Simannggang lah, Iban Batang Rajang lah, Iban Batang Lupar lah and so on. End of the day, we all end up macam penumpang di negeri dirik empun. If ever datuk moyang kita nampak apa kejadian kita hari tok, nyesal endak sudah cdaknya. They will ask themselves what went wrong, after all they were the one who fought for this land, not our current leader!!!! That's the fact and history can never be changed

    • http://google.com Nelson Mandela Janti

      In Brunei "Awang" does not denote a particular tribe.It is used to refer to ordinary male citizens of non royals .The title "Pengiran" in Brunei refers to people who are of royal family.The title "Dayang" is nused for ordinary female citizens of non royals. The title "Dayangku" is used to denote females of royal stock. You may be right that Awang Tengah may have originated from Brunei but Lawas district was once part of Brunei and "awang" is a common name in Northern Sarawak. In Brunei an Iban like me is called Awang Mandela ..in MALAYSIA "Encik Mandela"

      Certain prefix''Awang" or "Abang" are just ordinary names.

      So if Awang Tengah is allegelya thief minister in waiting until the old fox is kaput does not matter to me. What matters is for true Sarawakians to terminate these termites who , in the last 47 years have stolen our natural resources;;vote for PKR and shit on BN…

    Sarawakians – Wake up and vote and only YOU can make the change and claw back all that is rightfully yours, that must happen at all cost. You have a thief amongst you whom you thought you cannot get rid of but I am telling you you can. IT IS THAT SIMPLE. We have much more capable people to run the Govt machinery and let's hope it is the start of a new dawn and prove it to every Malaysian.

    With so much talent and resources Sarawak has can make it the most transparent state. What Sarawak holds is so special in Borneo island knowing that Borneo's natural resources are gradually being stripped bare. Lets it be managed properly. A good start is Sarawak.

    googled on SPRM coz i NEVER know why are they even existed, and here are their mission n vision. Is vomiting to the max for all those crap coz how i observed it until now is that, the SPRM is nothing near professional. They are wasting our (yes not theirs, ours) money on investigating Penang and Selangor much, but what the hole, we are facing Gadaffi's clan here, and they are wayyy too "busy" on far less nonsense? We are having problems tooo. How I wish I can say straight to their face on how much I wanna know what they really are.

    Just so u know, these are their Visi & Misi (well at least they think it is one). blargh.

    Visi

    1. Mewujudkan masyarakat Malaysia bebas daripada rasuah berlandaskan nilai-nilai kerohanian

    dan moral yang tinggi.

    2. Menjadikan SPRM agensi pembanterasan rasuah yang professional dan unggul.

    Misi

    1. Menghapuskan jenayah rasuah, penyalahgunaan kuasa dan penyelewengan di Malaysia.

    2. Mengukuhkan integriti dan memantapkan kepakaran melalui program pembangunan sumber

    manusia secara terancang dan berterusan.

    Objektif

    1. Membanteras segala bentuk rasuah, penyalahgunaan kuasa dan penyelewengan secara

    berterusan.

    Not just Taib that need to step down, but the changing of guards – Jabu, Goerge and Taib will need to go at the same time.

    taib might step down faster due to pressure but not sure about Jabu and Goerge. This might upset the transition, maybe Jabu want to stay on? Goerge will fight until SUPP name is better only then he step down. I still think BN will win but with deep bruising. I have concern about PKR. I still dont trust them.I would bet on DAP and SNAP. But definately not PKR. Sorry, i cannot trust Anwar.

    • aborium

      Dean, we share the same sentiments. When you keep old guards in the new Cabinet, they'd in all likelihood fall back to habits of yesterdays. The new Cabinet would then have extra baggages to carry instead of giving their full weight on pressing social, economic and environmental issues facing towns, communities, and villages.

      If they're ever given the chance to corrupt the new, then Fair Land Sarawak would go for another round of bashing, and if they keep on with their callous ways, Sarawak's fate may be sealed forever. So too would be ours and our children.

      Imagine being a forest that's eerily silent….life as we know it doesn't only belong to us. And we're only here on transit. Others, our children, plants and animals too have their rights and can lay claim of us for senseless plundering, raping, burning and undertaking irresponsible acts of ecological destruction.

      We need sustainable solutions for a sustainable future. We don't seem to have much choice in this matter. Doing it otherwise will put too much at stake for our future generations.

    One way is to preach against evil. Surely all religions do not agree with evil. MACC got other vested interests. Certainly not yours! Proven many times in West Malaysia.

    Start with sermons in churches or the Masjids and the Heads of Communities. Expose the truth and tell them what evil has done to West Malaysia and the same will if not has happened in the East.

    I am from the West. Its simply disgusting politics practiced here. Good that the East has begun to wake up to the realities. You must team up with the West to change the damned Govt.

    But first, you must learn that the goodies and sweeteners offered by the BN is only a small fraction of the wealth they have raped from you. I feel sorry for the East that despite the vast amount of natural resources taken, but so little given back. And this will continue under the BN Govt.

    Reach out to those in rural and semi urban areas who might not know the truth. Act fast!!! No point just talking , start to communicate with your other communities and convince them of the need for change.

    Remember that Sarawak holds the key to reformation, with the high number of seats. It will trigger chain reaction in Sabah and the West. Otherwise, you'd have to wait for GE14.

    Vote for other than BN! Be careful with SNAP!!!

    Good Luck. And I hope to hear good news from the Sarawak soon.

    we love sarawak,but we do not love taib and all his loyal servant,the government is not to blame,blame the one that in it…taib so step down ASAP before we bring you down

    Taib says,

    “My children are well-educated, they have gone to do business outside. I had to do business outside more than 30 years ago. Simple reason is I don’t want conflict of interest to haunt me all the time. [if] I do business inside the country, people will say I use my influence to enrich myself, so we did it outside the country”

    Come on Taib, no need to do business if you still want to become CM.Why you still use Sarawak state money to run your business?Really crook are you and using your men to cover up your act all this years!

    No matter how much we expose and talk about this man's corruptions, no matter how many libraries it can fill up, he will still be around – unless we vote him and his cronies out and set up a NEW STATE GOVERNMENT UNDER THE PR, after which we can go on the offensive to recover ALL, EVERYTHING, that he has stolen from the people of Sarawak ! Apply to the UN, Interpol,US,Canadian,British,Australian,NewZealand, anywhere at all, to freeze and confiscate all his ill-gotten gains and assets ! After which, send him and ALL his families and cronies to the worst jail in Sarawak – right in the middle of Sarawak jungle, to be guarded by the very people he stole from !

      Amin. Old, nyanguk and having hearing problem and simply accuse people wrongly. What's so great about government office ? Also plenty of politics in the office. Who go up and who go down. So many fishy businesses going on in government office, do you know that ? So many wicked hearts. May Allah finds them out.

    Even BN loss in sarawak ,taib will still be safe cause if u look at the x-CM of selangor until now no action was taken on him. History will repeat itself in sarawak so dont have high hope that Taib will be punished .The old fox knew that he is the Untouchable.

    Sekarang dah tau dah. Election to kame mahu undi PKR atau DAP kalau ada PAS pun boleh. Undi aja opposition dah. Dengar aja Radio free Sarawak " Papa orangutan " klik dengar papa orangutan interview YB Datuk Entili dan lain-lain.

    Asfia Awang Nasser will NOT stand in this election as he is now Acting Governor of Sarawak awaiting Taib to take over.

    If Taib wins the election,he will serve for 6 months and then step down and a BY-Election will take place and the candidate is noe other than the present STIDC GM Len Latif.

    If Len Latif wins..he will take over as the new Thief Minister and Taib will be the new Governor while Asfia will be the Speaker of DUN..On standby is Encik Sarudu Hock Lai and he will be groomed to take over from Len later on.In this way, the Melanau will control and remain in power..the dayaks are being marginalised and so too are the Malays..

    The Malays will have NO chance at all becoming the Chief Minister.So please beware and DON'T VOTE FOR BN..

  • arian
