It appears that Lim Kit Siang has a new mantra; show me the money; and it’s a RM 1Billion mantra that raises questions that needs to be addressed.
After all, if he and his ilk can raise questions about money Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is supposed to have then it is only fare that he be subjected the same scrutiny.
Malaysia Today blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) has written a post titled “Mahathir Bribed Kit Siang RM 1 Billion To Become Pakatan’s Chairman.”
It is a very juicy read that now only covers Tun Mahathir wanting Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan Harapan’s chairmanship post; but that he also wanted a safe seat for Mukhriz to contest in the upcoming general election.
The things RM 1Billion will buy you these days.
Tun Mahathir knows that Mukhriz does not have what it takes to win a seat on his own merit so Mahathir wants one gift wrapped. Now Mahathir wanting a safe seat for Mukhriz should not come as a surprise as he always wanted and still wants Mukhriz to have an easy path to Putrajaya.
What the story of the RM 1 Billion bribe tells us is that squeaky clean Pakatan Harapan is not as squeaky clean as Lim Guan Eng tries to portray; case in point; Lim Guan Eng and his bungalow scandal.
Now that the Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir’s deal has been leaked; what will they do?
At some point both Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir have to address allegation or even sue, if what was written about the bribe is not true.
And there is another problem. If Lim Kit Siang contests in Penang due to his son’s imprisonment and Mukhriz ends up contesting Gelang Patah, then everyone will know that it is not a coincidence. In fact, any safe seat Lim Kit Siang gives Mukhriz for all of his hard work for DAP-led Pakatan will be viewed as part of that RM1 Billion bribe.
Lim Kit Siang had better prepare to answer an avalanche of questions; where the burden of proof will be on him to prove whether the allegation about him accepting a RM1 Billion bribe is false.
Now it is becoming clearer why Lim Kit Siang has changed his stance on Tun Mahathir; he has adopted a ‘mantra’ found in the movie Jerry Maguire; ‘Show Me The Money’!
