The reports are the former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin wants to travel along the highways and byways with PKR cohorts to explain 1MDB to the people in simpler terms. (here)
Wait; isn’t this the same the Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who not so long ago was completely blur when it came to 1MDB? Apparently the former deputy Prime Minister found time to read when he was put out of Umno. This begs the question; why didn’t he familiarize himself with the issue when he was still in office. Could it be that he had his mind, eyes and hands caught up in other matters?
Now that Tun Mahathir has effectively dropped the baton on 1MDB, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin believes that he can pick it up and run the last leg of the race toward the GE 14 finish or beginning line; depending on your party affiliation.
Since Muhyiddin Yassin was forced to come out of the political closet, he had no option, but to reveal what many suspected all along; he was working both sides of the fence so that no matter who came out on top he would be the go to guy.
Muhyiddin was no different than the Rothschild family which secretly backs both sides of a geopolitical conflict so that their family can be in an advantaged position no matter which side came out on top in the conflict.
The problem for Muhyiddin Yassin is that he is a babe when it comes to a game that the Rothschild and similar families have been playing for years. And that is why insiders knew what Muhyiddin was up too. He was trying tactic for which he was not equipped to take on. As such, he was discovered and first removed from his position as deputy Prime Minister. Then at the appropriate time he was then put out of the political party which elevated him to where he was before greed and disloyalty became his bedfellows.
Muhyiddin was too pre-occupied with ‘other matters’ to inquire about 1MDB and thus could not articulate anything on the matter other than what he read from news sources.
What is particularly strange is the former deputy Prime Minister has aspirations of becoming Prime Minister and for him to not know who can provide him with information on 1MDB proves that he is not suitable for the position.
If Muhyiddin had said something to the nature of Arul Kanda Kandasamy as the person most familiar with 1MDB would respond to questions in due time; that at least would have shown more leadership than his reliance on what written in newspapers. He could have also said; ‘Let the investigative process run its course’, again that would also shown that he had the best outcome at heart; but he did none of those things. The outcome he foresaw was a successful coup d’état against Prime Minister Najib Razak and him (Muhyiddin Yassin) taking the post of Prime Minister. Upon gaining the Prime Minister’s post, he was to then find a way (following Tun Mahathir’s orders) to get Mukhriz in as one of the Umno vice presidents so that he would be eligible to be Prime Minister around 2020.
Of course Mukhriz would not accept the position because he said that he does not want to be Prime Minister.
Mukhriz can always use the quote from William Tecumseh “If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve” as a way to prove that he does not covet the role of Prime Minister.
Why then would he take a senior position in his father’s new party you ask. That is a question that Mukhriz may soon have to answer. As for now he and Muhyiddin Yassin have their marching orders and Muhyiddin orders are to march up and down Malaysia’s highways and byways hand in hand with PKR speaking on an issue that he was completely blur on when he was deputy Prime Minister.
