Some years ago Najib was invited by Ismail Sabri who was a cabinet minister (cannot remember which one may be somebody can help me here) to officiate the Hari Belia Malaysia.
At the time both Najib and Rosmah were "implicated" in the death of a foreign national who was murdered by explosive in a series of horrible rumours being spread of their involvement.
We know now that both Najib and Rosmah were no where near the crime scene and that Najib never knew this foreign national who was murdered, and they were never involved.
Now, back to the Hari Belia Malaysia opening ceremony Najib, instead of letting off doves or pigeons from a cage or even striking the gong, as a Malay tradition always warranted, Najib was asked by Ismail Sabri to push an explosive plunger to officially open the youth extravaganza. Now serioisly Ismail!
Najib and Rosmah were clearly not amused but as a leader Najib had no choice but to officiate the occasion with an explosive plunger. I can still hear glee and laughter of people who even said of Najib "Ha padan muka!" I clearly saw Ismail Sabri smiled, I believe he smiled because he had done his job as I suspect upon instruction.
Again he pretended to have a botched up event at Bukit Jalil where I found out he was "fuming mad" over a not a poorly attended event. Read here Knowing his track record, I think he planned it in such a way to make the prime minister look bad.
But threatening to sack official will even make Najib look even bad-der. His is a case of a more than one way to skin a cat.
Najib, you do know what to do right, just drop him from your cabinet line-up. Be brutal sir, people like Ismail Sabri are clearly not your loyal supporter!
