Politics these days are very tiring game especially with Najib as well as his detractors and enemies. The tide changes every second from and for the warring parties.
Just two days ago everyone among the anti-Najib group was joyously celebrating as they thought that the Special Task Force which was set up comprising of the Attorney General, MACC boss, The Inspector General of the Police as well as the BNM Governor would confirm that the money amounting to US700 million actually flowed into personal account of the Prime Minister as alleged by the WSJ.
I didn't rejoice the mood as I was too suspicious of the motives of the Special Task Force and I felt that the verdict was predictable. It was hard to believe in the members of that special task force as they were the ones who usually defend Najib to their last breath. Thus the finding by the Special Task Force that the accounts mentioned by the WSJ wasn't Najib's and the anti-Najib's group was caught by unexpected surprise.
Many are waiting for Mahathir’s response to the finding of the Special Task Force as the judgment of the special task force is truly injuring him quite severely. The actual truth about PM Najib is the weapon used by Mahathir in his struggle to oust Najib but the power and the authority that is wrongly used by the Najib saves the ailing PM momentarily before he can find means to have the long-lasting cover for all his misdeeds if he can.
Does Najib sits in a save sanctuary at present? Some say yes but others say no. However Najib’s group confesses that they learn a lot of valuable lessons right now. They realize that the closest to him (Najib) is the toughest to handle. Some even say by having a friend like Muhyiddin, Najib does not need any enemy anymore. Muhyiddin is in a fixed right now. He can’t move forward but only can move backward and retire with Najib unceremoniously. Muhyiddin was not decisive to the eyes of many and his undecisiveness lent him to political retardation.
For Najib he has learned another valuable lesson. Najib should admit that telling lies to cover numerous other lies would not end that easy. He should realize that he has to find every chance to cover the previous lies and usually the lies can be seen brightly through his face. Najib should realize too by now the problems with everybody when dealing with him is with his habitual lies and mendacities.
Now Najib is suspecting everybody even to those who are close to him in the party and the government. He has to suspect everybody and trusts nobody. He should submit to the fact that all his evil deeds are working against him. He may be protected by the ‘tutup lubang’ special task force but how long can that lasts?
It’s not going to last.
