You Are Here: Home - political concern - Taib Mahmud has bred insensitivity and arrogance of the highest level

In Act II Hamlet refers to Polonius as a “tedious old fool. Taib Mahmud has become that, after 30 years of unchallenged rule that has bred insensitivity and arrogance of the highest level.

Even after 30 years of rule, the majority of the people in Sarawak must be wondering, where has the state’s wealth gone to? The answer, it has gone mostly to Taib and his gang. Sarawak has become a byword of unbridled corruption. This is the main issue in Sarawak.
People of Sarawak must now read through Taib’s promises of better development and better welfare as not inspired by a desire to really improve the welfare of the people; people of Sarawak must now know that Taib Mahmud is driven by a desire to perpetuate his hold on to power and that of a dynasty he intends to leave behind.
Why doesn’t he quit now before the elections? Because he wants to put in place his grand plan. Who is to succeed him? He wants to fish out his sons to become his successor or an outsider, so deep with him who can be counted on to look after his vast interests.
We don’t have to come out with the list of pillage and plunder. The people simply know, it’s happening at a grand scale. The telltale signs of corruption, pillage, theft and larceny of the state’s wealth have been extensively documented. The expose about Taib Mahmud family’s fabulous wealth, tales of lavish parties, palatial homes all over the world, monopolistic business practices, decadent living and so forth.

While the majority languished in rudimentary appointed long houses and hovels, the elite and the rich entertained themselves in the most decadent of lifestyles. None more tasteless and insensitive than the marriage of Taib Mahmud’s niece on a luxury yacht. I think, the people of Sarawak do no have to think twice in kicking out these modern day Marie Antoinettes and the freeloaders on board the luxury yacht on that day.
The people of Sarawak have no other choice but to kick out all the corrupt politicians. Don’t bother even if the party is backed by UMNO or the BN. we simply can’t allow a corrupt regime to prolong. If UMNO continues to support Taib Mahmud’s administration, it places itself on the side of the corrupt, the pillagers and the plunderers of the state’s wealth. It simply stands on the side of the people’s enemy.
I am writing this article for the people of Sarawak in mind. I believe there will many changes this time around. Taib Mahmud and his coalition will lose a majority of the urban seats. These seats will be won mainly by the DAP. I think the BN leadership has underestimated the will of the dayaks whom they think are easily taken in by the usual talk of development. From what I hear, the dayaks on the whole are resolute in wanting to kick out Taib Mahmud.
If the Najib administration is serious in wanting to bolster its credibility with the people of Sarawak and show it is one with them, Najib as the BN leader must ask Taib Mahmud, Alfred Jabu and George Chan to leave. All have chosen themselves to stand for re-election.
George Chan announced he was leaving politics during the last state elections and he didn’t. Taib Mahmud has promised to leave, but as soon as the PM and DPM left Sarawak, announced that he will leave on his own time and terms. The people of Sarawak must help him decide then by kicking him out.
Bring in new faces, winnable, clean and uncorrupted. Forget the fallacy of thinking Sarawak can’t be governed without people like Taib Mahmud. It’s not like Sarawak is going to die if Taib Mahmud is not CM. and I think, its time Sarawak has a dayak as CM.
