An Umno angel wears Prada but the devil is in the details


Umno has been trying to save its body – but what has happened to its soul, wonders Maznah Mohamad as she reflects on the exit of Shahrizat Jalil.

The exit of Shahrizat Jalil was a divine performance equal to the best in sandiwara.

In court accompanying her husband for his CBT charge, she was in white. From baju kurung to head veil (not her usual diaphanous shawl loosely draped around a coiffured hairdo) to designer handbag, the leader of Umno’s women was awash in angelic hues. Was all this orchestrated to subliminally convey the air of virginal innocence?

Yes, she was toting a Prada handbag. So even the angel wears Prada.

Like Shahrizat, Umno is projecting a purity of mission, such as its latest fight to ‘save’ Muslims from ‘proselytising’ Christians and from an ‘evil’ Chinese DAP contaminating the Islamic Pas. It is a mission which belies the decadent giveaways of party leaders’ penchant for the extravagant, from Hermes bags to Wagyu beef. Through thick and thin, even unforgiveable sins, Umno will be counting on the Malays to support them.

AMMO, Barang Naik and Nacheat are beyond redemption. The more we continue with this tainted shirt the more we will go the way of Zimbabwe and Myanmar. We need to change into a new shirt for a new hope and that is PR.

ROTTEN truly beyond redemption and corrupted virus also spread to ‘brother’ component mca. in true words below so pls no more denying :- Quote from local mainstram media Malay Mail Former Port Klang Authority (PKA) chairman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng : My party has become rotten.
