Seven years ago back in 2010 I revealed that there is corruption in Selangor and they called me a liar. Today they finally admit there is corruption. Even Faekah who challenged me to prove it now says that the Selangor Government is corrupt. In the end I am proven right.

Allegations of abuse of power and corruption in the Pakatan Rakyat Selangor Government were first raised seven years ago back in 2010. That, in fact, was one of the grouses I brought up in my meeting with Anwar Ibrahim in London that same year. My breakfast meeting with Anwar was arranged by Yolanda Augustin who played the role of ‘middleman’ to try to patch up the failing relationship between Anwar and me.

I had many complaints about Pakatan Rakyat in general and PKR in particular. And most of it involved abuse of power and corruption in Selangor. I told Anwar if we went to all that trouble of throwing out Umno and Barisan Nasional just to replace it with another corrupt government then what have we been fighting for over the last 30 years?
The argument that Pakatan is less corrupt than Barisan is not acceptable. It is like arguing that Hitler killed only six million Jews compared to Mao who killed 20 million Chinese. Does that make Hitler acceptable?
When nothing happened (and instead Anwar whacked me in his talk in Australia) I published documents to prove that corruption was rampant in Selangor. I did not just accuse. I published the evidence to support the allegation.
Faekah challenged me to return to Malaysia with the evidence and even offered to pay my air fare
Faekah Hussin then challenged me to return to Malaysia with that evidence. She said the Selangor Government is even prepared to pay for my air fare if I do not have money to return to Malaysia. I should hand the evidence to the MACC for them to investigate, they said.
What Faekah did not know is that all those documents I published actually came from the MACC. My deep throat in the MACC gave them to me. So why do I need to return to Malaysia to hand the MACC all that evidence when my source for those documents is the MACC?
Instead of investigating my allegations, they called me a liar and said I was bought off. They declared war on me and I responded to that declaration of war. From that day on my mission was to see Pakatan Harapan brought down.
Millions are going into the pockets of Selangor politicians for sand mining alone
Some ask why I am focused on Selangor and am so upset about what is happening in Selangor. Simple! Selangor is my state. My family rules Selangor. I campaigned for Pakatan in Selangor. And I met my cousins and those in the Selangor Palace to convince them that the Selangor Royal Family must support change and must throw their weight behind Pakatan Rakyat.
But then it took only two years of a Pakatan Rakyat Selangor State Government to become just like the government we replaced. And my family and those in the Selangor Royal Family started looking at me ‘funny’. They looked at me like I was a stupid fool.
DAP Selangor has been scamming land in Selangor for almost ten years
It began to get very personal. I had staked my entire reputation endorsing Pakatan. So it became a personal insult and my personal failure. Pakatan is no different from Barisan after all. And here was Raja Petra Bin Raja Kamarudin — who for ten years from 1998 to 2008 quarrelled with His Majesty the Agong, HRH the Sultan, members of the Selangor Royal Family, telling them that they were wrong about supporting Barisan and that they should be supporting Pakatan instead — being made a fool.
Rafizi admits there is corruption in Selangor but says it is confined to PAS people or ex-PAS people
Today, Faekah and all those others who condemned me are admitting that there is a serious problem of corruption in Selangor. Even Rafizi Ramli said that Adam Rosly joined PKR in 2010 and that was when the problem started.
Well, it may have taken seven years but finally they all confirm what I said back in 2010. Today they are admitting the problem. But it is too late. I am no longer with them. I want to see them destroyed. Because of them I clashed with the Agong and the Sultan and members of the Selangor Royal Family. And they will have to pay for that even if it is the last thing I do.
