NST says - PUTRAJAYA: MACC officers seized files and documents from the Tourism Ministry today as part of its investigation into alleged money politics by a minister's aide and alleged misuse of funds in a subsidiary company.
Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said - Zoom Malaysia Icon, Tourism Minister, Member of Parliament and former Puteri Umno head … APPEARS TO BE IN DEEP TROUBLE.
She was ZOOMING very hard to take control of Wanita Umno but her backroom political maneuvers died prematurely.
When the political conspiracy “to Kill Rafidah and Shahrizat’ failed, the gutsy Minister who is a known KJ sidekick and among Abdullah Badawi’s top lackeys was pushed forward to be an Umno Supreme Council candidate.
The Fourth Floor agents were all around the country, greasing palms with Ringgit Malaysia, to ensure their preferred list of candidates qualified for the Umno Polls later this month.
The list includes Ali Rustam for the Deputy President’s post.
But their fate turned from ZOOM to DOOM when one of their key players, sitting Supreme Council member Datuk Norza Zakaria was ARRESTED by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission after his political corruption was exposed in Temerloh.
Norza’s arrest has spilled the beans, and now it’s time for the Domino Effect.
The arrest of Azalina’s aides, her Political Secretary and Personal Assistant, and the Tourism Minister’s impending DATE with the MACC is indeed a good omen for Umno.
