The move by Yong Teck Lee and his party, SAPP to express the vote of no confidence to the leadership is nerve racking and throbbing.
Even though the party has only 2 representatives in the House of Parliament, the move can be contagious as the weaknesses in the leadership is continuously defective in all turfs and levels.
Even though there were shouting and wailing within UMNO top leadership and the reluctant expressions of support from the various BN components, the scratch done to Abdullah and Najib is irretrievable.
The credibility of Abdullah and Najib has vanished and no one can guess what the subsequent happenings to be are.
SAPP has been very cross with the federal leadership as the party feels that Sabah has been treated like an orphanage state despite of being the savior for BN in the last General Elections (GE).
Whatever the reasons are, the incident is the worst whipping on UMNO leadership whilst the party is looming to their annual General Assembly on December where party election at top level is in the offing.
Sabahans in reality are not too content with the representation in the federal government and other agencies in Kuala Lumpur and claim that they are not given what should be due to them.
Sabah leaders, whether SAPP, UPKO, LDP and UMNO are in discontent after the GE and have not been addressed amicably by the federal leaders in Kuala Lumpur as they do not have the necessary guts and wisdom to solve the untidy political environment over there.
We don’t have that kind of good leaders like those during the leadership of Tunku, Razak and Husein when animosities of this nature could have been solved almost instantaneously.
It takes a strong charactered leader coupled with wisdom to attend to this kind of quandary but most leaders of these days are too defective in every territory in leadership.
So far, Tengku Razaleigh (TR) is the only living leader with good attributes found during the leadership of Tunku, Razak and Husein, whom many feel can mend all fences and embark on changes for a better Malaysia.
Even though Razak and Husein left behind their biological sons in the current UMNO lineup, they desolately fail even to get near to their aptitude.
Other than TR, there is nobody whom we can think of: Perhaps we have to wait for the birth of another TR, maybe in one decade or so.
Meanwhile, every fretful citizen should be playing fine role in assisting UMNO to make up new respectable lineup in the party once and for all, to address the present hiccups in the Malay struggle.
