What if I told you that Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim wasn’t behind the sex videos featuring Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali and Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz?
Let’s cut the crap.
Everyone knows that the person in the videos was Azmin, not his clone or lookalike. For the purpose of this article, we’re simply going to go with such terms as “Sodomy 2019” or the “Azmin-Haziq clips” and forget about the political correctness and all. So once again, what if I told you that the person who fixed Azmin up was none other than the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad?
Actually, I’ve already hinted of this a couple of times. In previous articles (see links below), I spoke of a plan to ‘weaken’ Azmin to ensure that when he’s made Prime Minister, he would swear off all allegiance with Anwar and keep Mahathir’s men by his side at all times.

Mahathir does not believe for one minute that when the time comes, Azmin will hand over the country’s premiership to his (Mahathir’s) son, Dato’ Seri Mukhriz Mahathir. So he needs to ensure that Azmin will forever be bedevilled by a sex scandal and would need Mukhriz, Tan Sri Rais Yatim and Tun Daim Zainuddin around him to back him up.
Under the circumstances, should Azmin actually become Prime Minister and one day backstab Mukhriz, a plan would be hatched to implicate him of Sodomy 2019 with the help of Home-Minister-designate, Rais Yatim. Yes, as much as you believe that Sodomy 2019 was an Anwar job, the PKR president was just as shocked as Rafizi Ramli was but did precisely what Mahathir knew he would do.
Jump onto the bandwagon.
The thing is, many are saying that Anwar had enough time in prison to figure out a grand plan to take over the country’s premiership from Mahathir. But many forget, that by the time the old man came into the picture, plans were already afoot to grant Anwar a pardon in the event Pakatan Harapan took over government from Barisan Nasional.
So you see, Anwar did not really have that much time in isolation to plan a neat strategy to go for Mahathir’s jugular. Everyone in Pakatan Harapan was too busy entering deals with one another to properly iron out a scheme to kill Mahathir off.
Anyway, Mahathir knows Anwar all too well. He knows, that his former deputy does not have the capacity to put on a believable poker face, gets overexcited at the slightest hint of success and isn’t able to make effective decisions when he’s overconfident.
And that’s precisely what Mahathir sought to do – make Anwar overconfident. He did the one thing he knew Anwar would never believe he was capable of doing – ‘kill’ Azmin. Mahathir knew that Azmin was Anwar’s enemy, that in Anwar’s books, jumping onto the enemy’s bandwagon to kill off the common enemy was a wise strategy.
So a plan was hatched to paint Azmin up to be the common enemy. Mahathir got his cronies to pay off 15 PKR Members of Parliament (MPs) from team Anwar, 10 MPs from Sabah and Sarawak and 40 others from UMNO, the DAP and AMANAH.
Coupled with the 25 PKR MPs aligned with Azmin – who, just so that you know, have long been paid off – the Prime Minister is said to have secured written commitments from a total of 105 MPs (including 15 from PPBM), all of whom were given permission to attend Anwar functions at will and flash smiles in front of cameras.
The plan, as I said, was to give Anwar the impression that he had the upper hand.
And seeing that the majority of MPs were ‘supportive’ of him and willing to smile in front of cameras while by his side, the PKR president did not feel it necessary to pay the MPs off and merely got some billionaires to pledge some funds.
The pledge, I’m told, was USD5 million per MP from Sabah and Sarawak. Mahathir, on the other hand, is said to have paid off 65 MPs a total of RM1.5 billion to secure undated agreements, all of which are signed, witnessed and legally stamped.
The stage was set.
The only thing left for Mahathir to do was to hurt Azmin in such a way that Anwar would get overexcited and believe that the time was rife to trigger a coup. Mahathir had long known of a fetish Azmin was into. Accordingly, it was put to him that his handpicked successor loved to record his sexcpades without the knowledge of the people he had sex with.
As the story goes, a PKR guy close to camp Mahathir got a hold of one of the videos and informed members of the camp that Azmin was in it. A plan was quickly hatched to leak the videos and to leak news of the impending leak to Anwar’s men.
Needless to say, the minute these men got word of the clips, they began communicating with each other and planned ways to bring Haziq to their side. They wanted to do the release their way but were too late – the videos were made public even before they could begin negotiations. It is unclear at this point if Haziq took Anwar’s men for a ride, though many of the MPs Mahathir paid off were instructed to do just that.
What’s clear, though, is that the back and forth between Anwar and his men extended also to several leaders from UMNO, the DAP and PPBM. Intel of the communications that took place between them reached Mahathir but did not surprise him one bit. On the contrary, everything was planned in such a way that the Prime Minister would get to know who in UMNO was with team Anwar and who wasn’t.
Everything worked to his favour.
The plan had all along been to trigger excitement in camp Anwar so that everyone would jump onto the “Azmin” bandwagon, communicate plans with each other and leave trails of evidence that pointed to Anwar. Even those claiming to be Mahathir’s closest ‘confidantes’ are convinced, based on the intel they received, that Anwar architected the whole affair.
So, with the Chief Justice, the MACC Chief and the Inspector General of Police at his ‘disposal’, and with 123 MPs (including those from PAS) on his side, Mahathir is sitting with arms folded, waiting. The minute Anwar springs on him, you can bet your last dollar that the two weeks thereafter would be the most interesting two weeks of your lifetime.
That having been said, remember – in politics, 24 hours can be a very long time. There is no telling who will strike what deal, when and where after reading this article. As it is, Mahathir is already considering the possibility of forgoing Azmin and may consider someone else as the country’s eighth Prime Minister.
