Who is Zahid? Do we have a criminal as home minister?

MP SPEAKS I thank Malaysians who have expressed their outrage at the arrogance and  cockiness of the new Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who was shown on television on Tuesday questioning: “Who is Lim Kit Siang? I don’t know who he is.”

What is important is not ‘Who is Lim Kit Siang’ but ‘Who is Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’ who has become the new home minister.

This has become particularly important following the call by the chairperson of the DAP legal bureau and MP for Puchong, Gobind Singh Deo, to Prime Minister Najib Razak to suspend Zahid from the cabinet to prove the prime minister is serious about government reform.
