1M PM6's tenure at the top is fast approaching 100 days. By right, most things should be in place by now. However 1 thing that seems to be out of place is still there, dangling precariously, will it fall and stab Najib or will it be there like the swinging axe of old? I am not talking about Najib personally here, it is about his other half, Rosmah Mansor, his wife.
They say that behind every successful man is a woman. Does Najib falls into that category? Some say that Najib have several women, behind and below him. We leave him at that. Since this posting is about Rosmah, let's start with her, shall we?
Malaysia today, the only blog consistently mentioning Rosmah Mansor through and through, in their latest postings about Rosmah mentioned of 2 not 1 videos on youtubes, courtesy of C4 production. After going through the videos, these are my views :-
- The video is done in poor taste. Nothing spectacularly new is revealed except to reinforce the statements that Rosmah is a snob. Yes, she has not returned to her kampung halaman since + 20 years ago;
- Rosmah disown her own daughter from her previous marriages (with some saying that she was twice married before hooking on Najib);
- Rosmah bullied her own younger brother (who had previously workerd in Land Rovers);
- Rosmah is claimed to use gangsters to follow her brother;
- Rosmah used gangsters to disrupt her disowned daughter's wedding;
- Rosmah is a "black magic woman", relying on black magic to charm Najib,
- Rosmah used her husband's position and influence to get things done;
- Rosmah's brother had left the country for his safety.
If she disown her own daughter, is this the Rosmah that we want to be standing beside Najib? If she can disown her own daughter, then can she represent Malaysian mothers who are known to be loving to their children? Can she represent the millions of mothers who take care of their children? Can she speak on behalf of these million over mothers? Do she has that right and priviledge to represent these women? I think not! If she did then it is the biggest mockery to the motherhood institution...
Malaysians are sentimental lots. We returned to our hometowns and birthpalces during Rayas', Chinese New Years, Thaipusms, school holidays and what nots to meet our larger families. Rosmah? If she had not returned to her hometown for the past 20 years, what is trying to prove? That she is independent? That she is a family outcast? That she is better than the rest of her family? Or is there something, a dark secret, that she is afraid of? It is her right to go wherever she wants. It is her rights too not to go anywhere she wants because this is a free country. But, in malay folklore, even Si Tanggang return to his roots. Is Rosmah worse than Si Tanggang? Is Rosmah facing amnesia problem? Has she severed her roots?
To be fair to Rosmah, it is difficult to correlate the gangster stories. For all you know, they might be there for different reasons. We are not here to speculate on the gangsters' role in Malaysian society because gangsters are multi tasked organisation. They can be peacemakers, intimidators, protectors, destroyers, friends, foes all rolled in one. And for that reason, we leave the gangsters out of this posting.
What about her brother? Or rather her only sibling? Why do she has to intimidate her own brother? What has her brother did to her? Has her brother associate himself to the powers and influence wielded by his in-law? Rosmah, if she did that to her brother ia one unlucky soul. Someone who is not grateful for what God as given her. Who is the first person that you turn to when you are in trouble? Who do we look for when , if and only if, we need kidney, spleen or anyone of those body organs donation that are only matching to our own siblings or children? All the money in the worls, the fame of husbands, the beauty of wives could not but the sacrifice of those organ donours. Maybe Rosmah did not need one now, what about the future? If Rosmah can do that to her own sibling who grew up together, then imagine what she can do to others.
Black magic? Tell me, who do not believe in the shamans? We are a society which, like it or not, are deeply entrenched and enchanted by the mystics. Malays, Indians and Chinese have their own shamans and their own approachto these mystics. Even in faraway land, Malaysians still believe in this phenomenom. But what about Rosmah? Did she use the shamans to cast away bad lucks? Did she use them to protect her family from jinns? Did she use shamans for her own gains? Rumours has it that she use an India-imported shaman to perform regular rites in her home. Surprised? Nahh...it has been known that politicians go to shamans for various reasons. One of the shaman, Mona Fandey, went to the extent of dismembering an unsuspected politician into 18 pieces. Rosmah has lots of clarifications to do. Did she or did she not engage the shaman? And for what reason?
Rosmah needs to come out from Najib's shadow. She has to prove that the accusations in the video is wrong or done with malicous intents. As 1M PM6's official wife, she could no longer claim ignorance to the video's existence because if she does that then she is making a statement that our police force is an incompetent lot. She has to take the bull by it's horns. She has to dispel the rumours and the accusations. How can she do that? Well, for starters, she can...
- She can make a trip to her hometown and meet with the accusers face to face;
- She can arrange for a photography session with the "disowned" daughter;
- She can start spinning stories on how close their relations are and confirmed by the daughter;
- She can meet with her brother and declare openly of their relationship;
- She can meet wih her forster family and introduce them to Malaysia
Najib's 100 days in office is coming up, Rosmah need to keep up. Will she? Can she? Time will not stand still for Rosmah and this is the time for her to prove her worth to stand next to Najib. 2 time widower, present day PM's wife...that's Rosmah. Who can unseat her? Who will unseat her?
Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
