IN an article published by Malaysiakini here on 30th Oct, 2017 titled “Najib launches into lengthy broadside against Dr M at dinner event” the PM made remarks which most believe is directed at me. I am reproducing Malaysiakini’s article below and my responses in bold. Malaysiakini reports Najib’s lengthiest broadsides against me though not by name.

He did this in a keynote address, titled “Governance in a Developing Democracy”, at a dinner organised by the United Nations Association Malaysia (UNAM) in Kuala Lumpur. The Prime Minister in his speech lamented what he termed to be the “epidemic of fake news”.

Dr M: What fake news! If they are fake prove that the Dept of Justice, America’s report about purchases of residence in UK and US, Wolf of Wall Street film, purchases of paintings, pink diamonds did not happen, that USD 3.5 billion of Riza’s money came from his family, that 1MDB money did not pass through Singapore banks as reported by officials, that USD 681 million was not in his account at AmBank, that Jho Low is not the recipient of 1MDB money.” Don’t just deny. Don’t ignore. Give prove. All money transactions are documented. Show us the documents on all the transaction involving 1MDB money. Sue the Dept. of Justice of America, the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Let Jho Low answer questions by American authorities.


Najib said: “From time to time, some Western media outlets have been featuring interviews with one of our former leaders and presenting his allegations about the country as facts.
“They are not. This former leader has been on a nearly three-year mission to illegitimately topple the democratically elected government of Malaysia in between election cycles.”

Dr M: What is illegitimate about toppling a democratically elected Government? It happens in Brazil, in South Korea and in many democratic countries in the past, between elections. The evidences against the overthrown leaders were not even clear. Already they were overthrown. Here the evidence is overwhelming – but hidden by the Attorney General. If the A.G. charges him in court, he would be overthrown today.

This former leader, Najib added, has tried “every method at his disposal and failed each time”.

Dr M: The attempts failed because there is no rule of law in Malaysia. Reports against Najib result in arrest and jailing of the man reporting. Reports by institutions are made official secrets. Judgement is passed by the A.G., not a court of law. Have a proper hearing and I will accept the verdict. If guilty step down.

As a result, Najib said, the leader was making himself available to any media organisation that was willing to listen so that he could “spread fake news and tell lies about his country for selfish political gains”.

Dr M: The print and electronic media in Malaysia is controlled by Government. Even Parliament cannot discuss 1MDB and the 2.6 billion Ringgit in Najib’s account. UMNO General Assembly was instructed to be silent on these. Am I supposed to censor myself when asked by foreigners. I have been talking to foreigners throughout my life. Prove that what I say is fake. Let’s have “Nothing to hide 3”.

Najib said: “He seems to think that if he tells a lie often enough, people will begin to believe it is true. And unfortunately, that may be the case as no one would expect a former leader to tell outright untruths.”

For instance, Najib cited the former leader’s oft-repeated claim that Malaysia was among the top 10 most corrupt countries in the world.
“When challenged to produce evidence for this, he is unable to do so. That is because it is nonsense.”

Dr M: It is the foreign media which repeatedly and extensively published Malaysia as among the 10 most corrupt country here , here , here , here and here to name a few. During by-elections money was openly paid to voters, kitchen appliances were given. The 2018 budget is offering money to people prior to an election. I don’t have to repeat my accusations. The people are already repeating them and telling me.

Citing Transparency International’s latest ranking, Najib pointed out how Malaysia was listed among the top third least corrupt countries, at 55th place out of 176.

Dr M: What about Transparency International (TI) Chief, Jose Ugaz’s speech on 2nd Sept. 2015 at the opening of the 16th IACC in Malaysia. Among other things Ugaz said;

“….What does that mean for Malaysia? The government has taken measures and initiatives to tackle corruption. We will surely hear that from the minister. We want to see more progress but that cannot happen while there are unanswered questions about the $700m that made its way into the Prime Minister’s personal bank account. In recent weeks we have seen the Attorney-General who was critical of the government suddenly replaced, the 1MDB taskforce suspended, investigators at the Anti-Corruption Commission arrested or transferred, and newspapers suspended for reporting on the matter. These are not the actions of a government that is fighting corruption. We may well hear promises of reform. That is not what is needed at this time. And promises alone will not restore confidence and trust. There are two questions that need to be answered: Who paid the money and why? Where did it go? One man could answer those questions. If that does not happen then only a fully independent investigation, free from political interference, can uncover the truth.
Until that happens, no claim from the government on anti-corruption will be credible.

You can read the whole speech here or watch the video clip at the end of this posting

On the former leader’s claim that the country was going bankrupt, Najib refuted this by quoting the World Bank, which stated that the “Malaysian economy is progressing from a position of strength”.

Dr M: The Malaysian Government total debt is almost one trillion Ringgit. Show how you are going to pay this. Let independent auditors audit KWSP, Tabung Haji, KWAP, FGV and PNB.

Najib said: “Another, which is laughable, is that Malaysia is in danger of sliding into dictatorship.”

Dr M: There already is a dictatorship in Malaysia now. There is no rule of law. A.G. prevents Najib’s case from going to court. Opposition figures are hounded and detained. Possible supporters of opposition are accused by MACC of corruption and money laundering without proof.

Ignoring the 2.6 billion in Najib’s account, the MACC is instead accusing, detaining and questioning a former minister on unfounded suspicion of corruption.

Najib insisted that elections are fiercely fought in the country, while the opposition has significant representation in Parliament and also controls three states.

Dr M: Elections were free before. Now there is a lot of cheating especially postal votes. In Pekan, Najib’s margin of 250 in 1999 increased to 25,000 in 2004 while the electorate increased from 35,000 to 80,000. There is no way for these increases to happen .Obviously the additional voters were created out of nothing. Financing of the opposition is actively blocked by Najib. All banks, even private one are closed to the opposition.

Najib said: “We have allowed demonstrations against the government in Kuala Lumpur. These are not the markers of a dictatorship. The claim is ridiculous. The irony is that this former leader has admitted that he himself was a dictator when in office. And this is his words, not mine,” said Najib to laughter from the audience.”

Dr M: If I can call myself a dictator, Najib should call himself a tyrant. I respected the law and I resigned of my own free will. Let’s see Najib do the same. Najib abuses the law with the help of the IGP and A.G. Or he should consider calling himself a crook. After all he had attained that acclaim in the Newsweek report during his Trump visit.

Despite all these, Najib noted that many things have changed since the former leader’s time.
“We have made it clear that there will be no more crony capitalism. We have invested in the infrastructure and public transport Malaysia needs and in opposition states as well as BN states, unlike his time.”

Dr M: I had no Jho Low or Riza Aziz

Apart from his veiled attack against Mahathir, Najib in his speech outlined initiatives he had undertaken, which he claimed, were essential to good governance in the country.
“Firstly, the concept of 1Malaysia, People First, Performance Now, secondly, the Government Transformation Programme and thirdly, the Economic Transformation Programme.”

Dr M: This concept is great. People are the first to bail out Government through G.S.T. The only performance we see is the corruption of senior Government servants, hospitals without medicine, low-cost housing not built, additional taxes based on nothing, and raids to oppress people and deter them from supporting the opposition. Registration of the opposition coalition has not been given. 1 Malaysia is about BN first. The only transformation is the new security laws being tightened and more power to the PM to detain people.

He also cited his brainchild – National Transformation 2050 (TN50) – which he said was launched to further strengthen the country.

Dr M: TN50 is launched. By 2050 the debt will bankrupt the country. The 1 trillion national debt will increase to 3 trillion. The Ringgit will depreciate further.

The government’s bottom-up approach in TN50, he said, was a clear example of the government practising good governance in response to the changing needs of a young population.

Dr M: Bottom up means the people must pay GST, endure high cost of living, no scholarship for their children while Najib enjoy the billions stolen from 1MDB, KWAP, KWSP etc.

“The economic performance I have outlined and the acclaim we have received from international organisations should be conclusive proof of the good governance this government has practised in Malaysia,” Najib said.

Dr M: What acclaim! Is being called a kleptocratic country an acclaim?

    Dear Tun

    Reading this in retrospect , I’m in awe on how you have brought this country to independence again at the age of 93. I’m in awe that true democracy is possible is this country. I’m in awe that every single broadside against you were answered perfectly on point. I’m in awe that Najib is now facing the consequences of his own actions. I’m in awe that I can have you again as my Prime Minister again after 15 years. ( I was 17 years old back then and still remembered feeling sad and a great sense of loss. Yes, I was born in 1986 under your premiership and you were the only PM that I knew since my cradle days )

    I left Malaysia in 2013 to Singapore because I felt the country I called Home is regressing in every aspect. I lost pride or rather ashamed being a Malaysian. I stop to care and read about politics simply because I loss hope for our country.

    I’m immensely proud that all Malaysians came together to make their voice heard and change indeed happened on 9th May 2018. I’m honour to have contributed to this victory, simply by exercising my right to vote.

    Thank you Tun for taking the lead to heal this country. Thank you for working around the clock despite your age, it’s not easy for a 39 let alone 93. For whatever timeline it is, I will be forever grateful for what you have done to this dear country which I can proudly call home again. I pray for your good health and may god bless you.

    A proud Malaysian under the premiership of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    Assalam Tun.

    We are still fortunate the world seems to joke and laugh only at Najib and his cahoots and not Malaysia. But this situation is fast changing, especially when overgrown kiddos are showing no remorse to tell everyone of their status, in similar manner Najib is excitedly and continually telling lies to us.

    More than 1 year has passed, and the Copier kid is still a kiddo!

    Dear Tun,

    Najib is the worst head of a country the world can ever have. He steals from the people, he abuses his position and power and makes use of his political party UMNO for his own benefits. He controls and manipulates thinking that this people and this country belong to him and his family. He thinks he is so smart showing his broadside attacking a senior who far exceeds his intellectuality and capability to head a country.

    Najib is a failure who will lead our nation to ruins. He uses the people as his shield and savior for crimes he committed. He uses the Malay people and Islam as his umbrella. He sure is one hideous fake caretaker of this country. He is a wolf in sheep clothing.

    No decent prime minister would use words he uttered from his mouth. He is really one foul mouthed head of Malaysian people. I’m so ashamed to have this kind of prime minister… he isn’t prime in any way, he is a total rot who will spoil everything within his touch.

    Good job Tun Mahathir, you have just struck the not so prime minister in his face. Show the world his real backside.

    Take care Tun.

  4. sc Nov 9,2017 12:09 AM

    Are Malaysians afraid that if the DAP win ,Malaysia would turn into Singapore? Is that really something to fear? Really? Having clean government? Having world class education and infrastructure? Having a GDP per capita of USD53,000 per year? Top 4 economies in the world? Clean open urban planning? Efficient developed world services? Developed human capital?

    Really? Being the next Singapore is something to fear?

    Nothing but bran for brains…. Third world fools…NEP did its job by retaining the thinkers didn’t it? You have villagers running the country now…

  5. z2z Nov 8,2017 8:34 PM

    The facts and evidences are mountain high and Najib thinks he can twist them into fake news. He may have absolute control over the local media but not international media.

    I am dismayed by the actions of the Sultan of Selangor who seems to take sides and ignore the elephant in the room to make a issue of Bugis ancestry, and to misinterpret Tun’s statement out of context. Why did he not raise an issue when Tun’s Indian ancestry was being ridiculed? The upright people of Malaysia will not forget every words and actions coming out from the leaders. We may not yet have the power to overthrow the corrupt Najib and UMNO today but the truth always prevails. History books will record the legacy of these leaders. Do they want to be known by the next generation as just and morally upright leaders or despots, oppressors, pirates, embezzlers, crooks, criminals and despised by their grandchildren and great-grandchildren?

    What happened to the ruler council’s call to investigate and provide the public with a clear and comprehensive report on 1MDB?

  6. sibotak Nov 6,2017 2:53 PM

    I am touch by Tun remarks on his latest video Cerpen
    Saya suka erti kata Tun Mahathir

    “Aku akan Pergi ”

    ” Untuk mendapat kesenangan tanpa usaha ”
    Ini ucapan yg amat tepat & tajam
    Memang TEPAT kelihatan Kerajaan Najib juga Sultan yg berkenaan
    HANYA ambil senang tanpa usaha
    Lebih Lagak dari Buat macam Tin Kosong
    Cakap Champion tapi sayang tak dapat masuk Final

    Memang Tanah di jual tidak bolih bawa kemana
    Memang Tanah di Tambak terjejas juga nelayan anak bumi


    Kalau Tanah , Bangunan sudah jadi milik dan hak orang lain
    Manalah kita anak bumi bolih suka suka masuk

    Najib berbual macam Mad Rempit…Tak punya Otak
    Kalau Tidak Security yg Tahan tidak benarkan masuk
    Anjing mereka akan gong gong tidak benarkan kita masuk juga

    Belajar usahalah tanam benih
    Macam Tun tubuhkan Proton sudah nampak bunga bunganya
    Di ambil ringkas si Najib pergi jual pula ikut emosi beliau
    Nampak sangat Najib pemalas , sifat pemboros
    Takut nak usaha untuk dapatkan kesenangan

    Dengan Tanahlah kita perlu hasilkan sesuatu yg berpanjangan
    Bukan menjual tanah untuk dapat hasil yg sementara

    Ini sifat dan alasan orang Pemalas & Tidak Bertanggung Jawab
    Walau alasan Tanah ini tidak bolih dibawa kemana
    Jangan asik nak gadai Tanah
    Tanah hilang nak jual apa pula ?
    Maruah ? Anak Bini kita ?
    Nak Mengankang ?

    Memang dari zaman dahulu
    Orang Cina dari China
    Tidak bawa 1 sudu Tanah pun ke Tanah Malaysia
    Tetapi Anak Cucu Cicit mereka sudah mempunyai Hak milik di kesemua Tanah Malaysia, dari Johor hingga Kelantan dan Keseluruhannya

    Baru kini Lim Guan Eng , menanggis merasa sedih & terharu
    Pulau Pinang di tengelami Banjir hingga ke paras yg kritikal
    Maka beliau memohon pada Zahid bantuan Kecemasan
    Zahid perlu Bantu…ini satu coabaan

    Apabila Lim Guan Eng menjual Tanah Melayu dengan seluasnya di Pulau Pinang
    Tak pun beliau menangis atau minta bantuan Zahid

    Fikir fikirkan….Renung renungkan
    Wahai Anak Muda
    Wahai Kerabat di Raja
    Wahai Anak Bumi Malaysia

    It is now or never

  7. anti rasuah Nov 6,2017 2:08 PM



    Teruskan perjuangan. Kami melihat Najis Razak semakin PANIK dan TERDESAK. Baru-baru ini tersebut “kepala bapak kau”, ha ha ha PM kita ini sudah semakin tenat dan kalut. Dia sudah melatah Tun. Mana ada PM berucap bicara seperti itu Tun lebih-lebih lagi di platform yang tidak sepatutnya. Kalau dia mencarut atau bercakap kurang enak berdepan dengan Rosmah atas katil, dah tentu Rosmah mengamuk.

    Kami melihat Najis ini semakin sakit jiwa. Menyebabkan dia hilang kawalan, Tun.

    Teruskan perjuangan Tun. Kami sentiasa mendoakan kesejahteraan hidup Tun di dunia mahupun di akhirat.


  8. Dave Copper Nov 6,2017 1:11 PM

    Ingat Akhirat,
    You were the one who is willingly read my posts, and read all the way to April 2017…any beyond I suppose?
    Anyway, I already instructed you not to read my post.
    Choo, choo, go away.

  9. Ingat Akhirat Nov 6,2017 12:15 PM

    Dear Readers,
    Dumb, Dungu Dave (Dave Copper)
    Doctor Mahathir wrote in abundance about “Najib the Criminal”, a proven Malaysian’s public enemy No.1.
    But this dumb, dungu Dave was in contrary. Denying the concrete facts.
    I am not a doctor to prescribe him anything except his favourite banana.
    As soon as I saw his writing, I skip…. I know it’s worthless and rubbish.
    I hope you readers do the same. Don’t read this m@nkey’s writing.
    It will make your day cheerful as it did to mine.

    Thank You Tun.

    Ingat Akhirat

  10. Sri Sense Nov 6,2017 11:38 AM

    Salam Tun

    I think penggunaan ‘Kepala bapak kau’ oleh seorang PM Malaysia adalah tidak wajar dan manis didengar.

    Bayangkan dalam whatsapp group keluarga pun ada yang muda mula menegur yang tua bila yang tua sebut betapa tidak wajar perkataan ini diguna oleh MO1. MO1 telah membiakkan sikap kurang ajar dikalangan rakyat Malaysia.

    Oh ya saya sempat tonton budget dibentang oleh MB Selangor. Cara penyampaian budget begitu professional sesuai untuk budget sebuah negara.

  11. RD. Nov 6,2017 8:57 AM

    Kalau nak baca mengapa ada yang terasa bila Tun sebut Lanun Bugis… tapi yang peliknya, kita sangat suka pada Jack Sparrow… baca disini;-

  12. zz Nov 6,2017 8:55 AM

    Salam Tun,

    Kenyataan2 Najib tak lebih berupa kangkong, batang lembik akar menjulur ke dalam air longkang.

    Adalah kumpulan2 keturunan Bugis Johor yg seperti monyet2 memungut aisa2 sampah menuntut kononnya seperti keturunan yg agung. Termasuk lah golongan ‘bangsawan’ pula, juga kononnya menhasut.

    Hebat lah bangsa ini! Sepi bila dikalangan mereka menipu & membuat jenayah!!!

    Hebatkah itu? Pd fikiran saya lah, apa lah yg dicipta org bugis? Butang baju, zip pun tak dicipta org Bugis aka org melayu amnya. Bertempik macam yg seorang tu yg memanggil diri pahlawan, modal air liur menuduh fitnah aje…

  13. mattahir Nov 6,2017 12:17 AM

    MO1 dakwa Forest City adalah reclaimed land, jadi bukan kawasan/isu sekuriti negara? Jadi sesiapa selepas ini boleh buat apa apa pulau di perairan negara dan cakap kawasan reclaim itu harta bapak dia sendiri yang punya.. hakmilik kekal sampai kiamat. Perairan negara adalah hak negara, bukan hak peribadi sesiapa. Ini mengesahkan mentaliti lanun dalam kepala MO1. Hanya orang bodoh lagi buta undang-undang yang cakap reclaimed land di perairan negara tiada kesan sekuriti.

    Lagi pulak mana boleh negara jual tanah kepada orang luar dengan hakmilik kekal? Orang yang mata duitan sahaja yang akan jual macam itu, jual negara demi keuntungan sendiri. Malang sungguh rakyat Malaysia. Orang seperti MO1 merupakan ancaman amat jelas ke atas keselamatan dan kedaulatan negara.

  14. musato Nov 5,2017 12:33 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Najib adalah lanun Bugis.

    Amat memalukan bagi seorang Melayu menggelarkan dirinya sebagai pahlawan Bugis tetapi bertindak macam perangai lanun Bugis.

    Najib memalukan keturunan pahlawan Bugis keseluruhannya.

    Tidak bertindak menjawab apa yang ditanya oleh Tun Mahathir. Malah menggunakan saluran yang tidak sepatutnya bagi mendiamkan Tun Mahathir.

    Menarik khidmat tukang masak, outrider dan UTK bagi melemahkan Tun kononnya.

    Saya pun tak ada bodyguard. Biasalah tu. Tak ada apa nak hairan sangat Najib oi.

    #NajiblanunBugis #NajiblanunBugis

    Saya tak kisah pun kalau lanun nak melanun.

    Tetapi sekarang Najib berjawatan PM Malaysia dan bertindak seperti lanun. Itu patut dihentikan.

    Ini negara saya. Tempat tinggal saya. Di mana bumi dipijak, di situ langit dijunjung.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Assalamualaikum tun,

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun.

    Let him believe what he need to believe…but I don’t believe him at all. Najib and his gang of bandits are the clear and present danger to the nation.

    I have 3 simple questions (facts)

    1. Najib received USD 681 million (RM 2.6 billion) in own oersonal account at AmBank.
    2. AG Pandi confirmed this and further said that USD 600 million was returned to sender.
    3. AG Pandi further confirmed that Najib received RM 42 million but Najib is not aware of this money…yet he spent the money…without knowing?

    Najib never disputed the “accusations”…but he simply denied without a shred of evidence….and yet the gang of bandits accepted his denial.

    Do you still want to believe him?

    I just wish him a long life…so that he will face real justice when all his Kings is no more…not only him…but his gang of bandits as well.

    If you want this to happen…it is so easy…no more vote for BN…simple as that.

    We deserved the truth.

  18. sudin Nov 4,2017 1:23 PM

    Assalam Tun.

    Najib tries hard to create jokes hoping his forced smile clearly noticeable by all will help diffuse his worries. Instead he entrenched his growing reputation as also a jester, and the reluctant audience will needless clap for this modern day jester.

  19. musato Nov 4,2017 8:43 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Rasanya agak lewat sudah untuk Najib membersihkan diri.

    Seperti duit klepet meninggalkan jejak. Begitu juga tindakan Najib sekarang meninggalkan jejak dokumentasi/sejarah.

    Jika Najib menang kali ini, mungkin Najib akan menjadi seperti raja. Raja sementara di dunia. Tapi jika Najib kalah, saya terbaca bahawa ia akan memberi kesan sepertimana ia dilakukan.

    Menarik untuk dinantikan apakah penyudahannya.

    Tapi berhati hatilah Najib. Setakat ini saya belum kalah lagi. InsyaAllah.

    Terima kasih Tun.
