Today marks the end of an era of tyranny that many have prayed for. I grew up looking up to these two individuals, loving them, respecting them. There was a time when i would have walked through the fires of hell and back for them.
As i grew older, i saw the selfishness and greed of one above all else. I experienced firsthand emotional, physical and mental abuse at the hands of the one on the left. I witnessed firsthand the same abuse she caused onto the one on the right. I witnessed many trespasses, deals and handshakes these two made for the benefit of power and to fuel their appetite for greed. I witnessed the side deals made behind the back of the one on the right.
The amount of money in briefcases exchanging hands and being spent like water not for the benefit of the rakyat but to be spent like water on jewels, bribery of officials and used in the pursuit of gaining more power. Shamans, witch doctors, aesthetic doctors and the like walking the pathways of my home for one reason or another but mostly to bring to heel and gain dominion over their peers and over their family members, even to cause harm on those who were audacious enough to cross them.
The numerous offshore accounts opened to launder money out of the country for their personal spending. The steel safes full of jewels, precious stones and cash amassed. Being made a cash mule or even crystal shoes mule carrying these quietly into and out of the country was no fun either, let me tell you. The countless attempts to sell me into marriage to the highest bidder or even persons with the highest position that will be able to help them gain political and social advantage.
The greed, avarice and pride that grew with each step that was gained closer to the top position. Nothing could stop their reign of terror and yet i stayed out of loyalty and duty. When this terror was then focused on me and became too unbearable a burden to carry, i decided to leave. Thus began my self imposed exile from this unfortunate family.
Azrene Ahman, the step-daughter of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, published a social media post condemning his own brother Riza Aziz and the Najib family for allegedly stealing from 1MDB.
In a poem titled “The Aziz Children’s Door”, referring to the different paths her brother Riza and she herself had taken, she suggested that Riza’s greed had corrupted him, while Azrene herself took a wholly different path, focusing on peace and justice.
One day a boy slept, someone came knocking at his door
He opened it a tad bit and a voice called out from the great outdoors.
It asked him what he wanted in exchange for some shelter and succour
His mind warned him as did his body- do not take what is offered
But his traitorous heart heard what was laid out by the door and it rocked him to the core.
It was all he had ever wanted and so much more.
His hand reached out and he let it in and that was the end of his solace
Because he took the offering laid at his door.
One day a little girl slept and a knock pounded on the door
A voice asked if there was anything in the world she wanted more
She answered peace, justice and all things right
For her children to sleep safe at night
She reached out and let it in, widening the door but never shutting it tight.
Both got what they wanted, but paid so much more.
Because God has determined
You reap what you sow-
You get what is yours and not a penny more.
So… Thank you to all my friends and family for your concern this morning. For those who have been asking how i feel about all that is going on at the moment, here is my official statement:
Riza was and still is someone we all love very much. Unfortunately, our love was not enough for him and those he chose to surround himself with. He chose, like many others before him, to have fame, wealth and adulation. He is now paying the price for it. If Malaysia is not willing to give the justice that the Malaysian people have prayed for and the justice my family have each night prayed for then the US has- in its own way that only they can justify.
Those who know me know that i am the black sheep of the family- but that does not mean i do not love my family. People can call me heartless for what i write today but i have always stood for and done what is right, for truth and for justice even if there is a high price to pay and if it means doing the unpopular thing. I have always maintained that if Riza did indeed use and profit from stolen funds he needs to pay for what he has done. If he stood as proxy or as a trustee for what does not belong to him or any individual who asked him to be the “dutiful son”, he needs to pay for it. Nevermind the reasons justified for doing it, if it hurts the country and the people then it is wrong. A wrong must be righted.
I am not a politician and i hope never to have anything to do with politics. If the USAG and the US have decided to cop out by leaving the term “corrupt government officials and 1MDB officials” as an open ended thing, i hope and pray for the sake of this country and what is right that the right individuals be brought to justice.
To his mother, you have forsaken one child at great cost and detriment. You have utilised and mobilised government resources to wreak terror to harass us over the last ten years for standing up for what we believe to be right. Please do not forsake another just so that you and your husband can get off scott-free. It is time for YOU to step to the plate and do what is right. Be. A. Mother.
To the different “officials” who have had a hand in harassing my family to this day because you were ordered to do so at the threat of job safety and the safety of your family members, one day a knock will come at your doorstep asking to collect your soul and debts. Make sure you are prepared to pay them.
To everyone who thinks me heartless on this day, please remember this. My prayers for truth and justice- just like any other Malaysian, has been answered this day and will continue to be answered. If Riza signed his soul to the devil to own what does not rightly belong to him, consider his debt with the devil collected and more due for collection. Similarly, all family members who have signed their soul to the devil… Your time will come. My price to pay to watch the house of cards come tumbling down and to be the voice of encouragement to everyone to never be afraid to stand up for what is right so that my husband, in laws and children can sleep soundly at night in peace and safety is to painfully watch my other family members that i left behind 10 years ago pay the price for their wrongdoings.
Consider their debt as continuing to be paid. Ask yourselves: What about your debts? Have you ALL done the necessary debt payments due to yourselves, your country and its people? I will continue to pay mine so that we can all sleep soundly from tonight.
She went on to express that while she and her family loved Riza very much, it was not enough for him who also wanted wealth and fortune – now he has to pay the price for it. She also suggested that even if he is only used as a proxy for his parents, that he needs to be punished simply because it was a wrong that needs to be righted.
She also called on to her mother Rosmah Mansor not to forsake Riza just because he got into trouble, just what she did to her. She alleges that because of her public criticism of them, Rosmah had utilised and mobilised government resources to wreak terror to harass her over the last ten years.
She asked her to play her role as a mother this time, and not only think of herself.
ROSMAH SON IN LAW – Dato’ Fazley Yaakob melalui Instagram turut memuat naik status untuk menyampaikan mesej yang hampir sama kepada rakyat
“Syukur Alhamdulilah, Allah Maha Besar, tak sia sia akhirnya perjuangan arwah ayah saya dari hari pertama, bersama2 Tun Mahathir dan barisan pemimpin kanan beliau, untuk membuat perubahan demi negara tercinta. Kepada rakyat malaysia, tahniah kerana kita sama2 melaksanakan perubahan ini
“Arwah ayah saya Datuk Hj Yaakob Mohammad adalah antara pelopor utama memulakan perubahan ini bersama YABhg Tun Mahathir Mohammad, Namun sayangnya beliau pergi lebih awal di kala beliau sedang sibuk turun naik bersama saya ke office Tun Mahathir. Pemergian arwah begitu mengejut tanpa sebarang masalah kesihatan dan amat misterius buat kami sekeluarga, juga sahabat handai. ‘Si Polan’ mencuba pelbagai cara untuk memastikan arwah ayah saya tidak dapat melaksanakan perjuangan beliau bersama Tun
“Pelbagai halangan dan gangguan di laksanakan agar arwah ayah saya tak mampu melaksanakan tugasan2 penting beliau berjuang demi perubahan. Malahan saya dan isteri sering menjadi mangsa kekejaman si polan tanpa ada belas kasihan, namun kami sekeluarga terus tabah memperjuangkan kebenaran. Arwah ayah saya sentiasa memberi kata2 semangat, “ Fazley & Azrene, Yakinlah, Allah akan sentiasa berlaku adil, masanya akan tiba, Perjuangan kita belum selesai, perubahan harus di laksanakan
“Teringat kisah arwah ayah saya di panggil Tun Mahathir ketika arwah ayah masih lagi menjadi Pengarah JPJ Wilayah perseketuan, “Kob, can you help me manage this issue since the system that you implement in JPJ works so well?” Parti UMNO telah ‘deregister’ dan menjadi parti Haram kerana senarai ahli tidak dikemas kini dengan strategik
“Dalam tempoh 24 jam arwah ayah saya meninggalkan tugasnya sebagai PTD officer dan bertugas sebagai Setiausaha Kerja UMNO Malaysia. Mulai saat itu setiapkali pilihanraya, saya sentiasa bersama arwah ayah membantu melaksanakan tugas2 pentadbiran dan perlaksanaan sistem keahlian. Pada ketika itu, setiap kali melihat kelibat si polan, ada juga timbul rasa kagum, namun sayangnya rasa kagum itu tidak bertahan
“Nak tahu kenapa?”
