The SICk Duo and the real reasons why Mokhzani must quit

The SIC belongs to UMNO now? That's what Azalina Othman and Ismail Sabri Yaakob, our two ministers from Umno, seem to be saying. They said since Mokhzani has quit Umno, he should also quit the Sepang International Circuit!
Blogger Apanama disagrees with the "SIC-k Duo". He said the SIC is not a subsidiary of Umno and belongs to the Rakyat.
Read his full posting h e r e. Rizal Hashim also posted on this subject earlier, here.

RM100 million annual budget, night races, and a new multi-million USD contract.
In reality, Azalina and Ismail's demand that Mokhzani quits SIC has little to do with their loyalty to Umno.

The SIC is a gold mine that's about to get a lot bigger. Mokhzani has been running the F1 races and the Grand Prixs on a budget of approximately RM100 million a year. Now, under the new contract that will come into effect in 2011 and stretches till 2015 with Bernie Ecclestone, the F1 boss, that budget is about to get a whole lot bigger.

There's more. Under that new contract, the SIC must get the Sepang Circuit ready with night facilities for night races by 2011. Naturally, you need big, big bucks to install those night facilities, ladies and gentlemen.

According to Utusan Malaysia, the contract for lighting the track alone is worth about RM40 million. I have been told it could go up to as much as US$20 million.

And that's lighting for the tracks only, mind you!

For quite a while now, a group of young guns closely linked to some Umno higher-ups has been eyeing the pie. But Mokhzani is there and he has submitted a proposal some time ago to the Youth and Sports Ministry (minister is Ismail, former minister is Azalina, get the connection?) to install the lightings by next year.

And then Mokhzani decided to quit Umno. How opportune! So last week, Mokhzani was told (by Khazanah, if I'm not mistaken) that his proposal to install the lighting by next year needs to be revised. Which means, sayonara. Which also means that someone else will be getting the project, thank you very much.

I have a feeling Azalina and Ismail know more than they are telling the reporters when they called for Mokhzani to quit as SIC chairman. But even if they didn't, we come back to Apanama's assertion: these Umno ministers should stop behaving as if SIC belongs to UMNO!

MM was suppose to run a story on it earlier this week only to be shot down by Tony Francis.

Guess he doesn't know a good story when he sees one.

I never knew you have to be an Umno member to be the chairman of a government-related sports body!

Wonder if PM, after listening to his back door defector law Minister, will use Mokzani’s “undated resignation” letter to pacify the sick duo (including giving the lucrative contracts). No reason for Mokzani to step down; PM is in his “autumn leaves”, the people will make sure that he, the duo and the law minister and several others will wither away soon enough.

If you have time to spare, take a drive to Section 12 in Shah Alam - at the foot of Istana Kayangan. You'd see a row of bungalow lots three of which seem to have been bought by the former Youth Minister. (Her name is inscribed across the main gate.)

Now, one may ask, how did she manage to buy three bungalows within one term of being a minister - all of which would have cost more than RM3 million. If I may recall, her former ministry was very much in the limelight with the Auditor-General's Office because of some wrongful claims on purchases or something...

Many of us long-time residents of Shah Alam have repeatedly applied for a plot of land for the family, but never had the luck with the previous MB. So, much as I am grateful to the UMNO-led government which has brought prosperity to the State, I wasn't that upset that Khir Toyo lost the MB post.

This ismail is typical of the breed of UMNO ministers who are bloody arrogant and just pure selfish for the money, UMNO/BN were thrashed in the election not 3 months ago, they were quite for a while all humble and what nots, and now the SIC cash register ka-ching, ka-ching sound is too hard to ignore and ismail is already salivating as we speak. Such opportunist has no place in the cabinet.

Instead of asking Mokhzani to resign, Ismail should as Sports minister look at the sorry state that Malaysian sport is in and with all the multi million budget splashed for sports where do it get us? Nowhere! we are lower than minnows in soccer, aimless in hockey probably our saving grace is squash in Ms Nicol now. Ismail! Azalina was aimless when she held the post, please improve on her performance. Please do not make a fool of yourself as sports minister further by trying to equate Mokhzani SIC post to that which belongs to UMNO.

Ismail, UMNO does not own the Government, the RAKYAT do.

Mr Rocky,

SIC aka Sepang International Circuit Sdn Bhd (SIC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airports Berhad, was incorporated in January 1998 to manage and operate the Sepang F1 Circuit, Malaysia.

If it was bought by Umno, MAB has to inform shareholders and KL Stock Exchange.

Mokhzani is not that smart afterall, knowing the consequences for leaving UMNO, the government of Malaysia. Strange isn't it that Mahathir would so readily resign as well but prefers to be sacked rather than resign from Petronas. Speaks a lot doesn't it? Money makes people sing a different song.

Look since public funds is being used, there should just be open tender for any procurement.That way "persons" come and go but procedures are there to protect public interest.
Since you are interviewing MK2, one question you should ask is how much in value of Govt procurement over the last 5 years was awarded through open tender and how much through direct negotiation.?

First of all,I agree with you guys,the SIC has nothing to do with UMNO, as such, it doesn't matter whether Mokhzani is an UMNO member or not.

With that out of the way, IMHO, Mokhzani doesn't deserve to become SIC chairman in the first place. He was the same man who ran Tongka to the ground! Until today, they still haven't settled the EPF. Not only that, some of the vendors haven't been paid.

The reason why he became the SIC chairman in the first place is because of he his Mahathir's son and not because of his capability.
Either way I dont really care if they kick him out or not.

But this lesbo Azalina is to much la. Dont know whats up her a$$!

And i also hope Mokhzani and geng stop treating and using the Sepang racetrack paid for by rakyat money as their own private racetrack...to race their supercars bought by profiting from major business dealings from daddy's rule and alleged bailouts by duit rakyat which still need to be investigated!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why are you so blind to their wrongdoings, Rocky??? They are NO DIFFERENT FROM PAK LAH'S FAMILY PROFITEERING!

intan said...

well well..who chosed Mokhzani to become the chairman of SIC to begin with..that was becasue he is Mahathir's son!!!!...very corrupt cant u see Mr. Rocky? Mokhzani became the chairman while Mahathir was in office!!! he is not qualified, no credential what so ever...since this is the era of Rakyat's voice, + we are going for equal opportunities, equalities and all those bullshits..i say he should be sacked just on that note, simply because he was handed the position by mahathir!!!! ..and shame on u rocky for trying to potray that he belongs there and owns it, that he has worked hard for that..bull..that is our money man!! rocky i know u are a mahathir and his cronies supporter...but please lah just dont try to make them look like fair players cos they are not, never been and will never be!..just a group of scums!!!...as dirty as azalina and that ner sports minister, or perhaps worse!!! peace!

Soldier of Fortune said...

Bru,

I read the SIC and Mokhzani piece in your blog. It's disturbing because MAHB is a public listed company (Plc). Yes its 60 odd per cent owned by government, but it's a public-listed company. If you want to treat it as Sdn Bhd, fine, but then please take it private.

If you recall in the current parliment session, the Government disclosed that Air Asia owes MAHB a couple of hundred million ringgit.

Why didnt MAHB take action against Air Asia?

Is it because UMNO told them not to? Perhaps because Tony Fernandes campaigned for Sharizat in Bangsar.

Hey, i thought UMNO's role is to promote Malay interest, social, political and business.

Secondly, direct government inteference as we see now on a GLC-linked Plc, merely confirms foreign funds' perspective, all that jazz abt corporate governance, GLC score card, hiring best people for jobs, were merely hogwash.

Also MAHB board members made to look like rubber stamp, and have no real say on how the company is run.

Ismail, the sport minister, is right in not attending the event. Because SIC aka Sepang International Circuit Sdn Bhd (SIC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airports Berhad, is directly under the Ministry of Finance. The Minister of Finance I or the Minister of Finance II is the best person to officiate the event.

Therefore professionally, Ismail as the Sports Minister, has no rights to ask Mokhzani to resign. The same goes to Azalina as SIC is not under her ministry too.

Unless UMNO has some shares in SIC, or MAB or Khazanah or ??????

Anonymous said...

Azalina and the other guy's statement is undoubtedly stupid. Indeed UMNO DOES NOT OWN the SIC. The statement only reaffirms general belief (knowledge!!!!!!) that top positions in government-interest corporations are RESERVED FOR UMNO BIGWIGS.

HOWEVER, for those who are attacking Azalina, the other guy and by extension Pak Lah et al, for CRONYSM, EXCLUSIVISM, NEPOTISM ETC you might want to do some homework on WHEN and HOW Mokhzani got that SIC job to begin with. The scenario and setting resembles KHAIRY JAMALUDDIN'S position as HALAL HEAD.

If you're really into this guy and SIC, go find out WHICH COMPANIES operate the F&B at the SIC during F1 as well as the F1 concerts and galas. Go find out WHO OWNS those companies and see if the dots link back to Mokhzani ET AL.

And since you all are willing to be petty, go find out how many GRAND STAND tickets are given out FREE to UMNO supporters in his family's political network EVERY YEAR.

Hi Rocky,

Looks like the "Malay War" is getting out of hand. UMNO leaders backstabbing one another, past leaders condemining present leaders, ministers' disagreeing with one another. Now even GLCs are not spared. Where are the Malays heading? Reading the papers nowadays is no longer fun, educational and informative. major dailies are becoming gossip tabloids.

Now, every other Minister wants to be a blogger. I guess, they should concentrate on their jobs as MPs and Ministers.

nstman said...

Mokhzani has been doing a good job and he has the confidence of the F1 powers-that-be. Dropping him would send the wrong message. But then we are talking about the contracts and the big bucks accompanying them. This is enough to salivate Umno big guns. In the end, money talks. Umno is a party premised on cronyism, contracts, lack of transparency. Umno is just paying lip service to calls for change. Umno is in its last legs.

hjab said...

If Mokhzani got the position at SIC on the basis of him being Mahathir's son and on the basis of his position in UMNO, then kick him out by all means. If the basis of his appoinment is wrong enough, what's so wrong with kicking him out now? Or is it it is okay to practice political-patronage and nepotism now? I can still remember quite a few eyebrows were raised when Mokhzani was appointed as SIC Chairman some years back. Melayu memang mudah lupa.

Semua sama sajalah, Azalina ka, Ismail ka, Mokhzani ka, they all belong to the same political ideology. Mokhzani quits UMNO just because he hates Pak Lah, not because he hates UMNO's policies of enriching their own selves.

If these scums can deny the rights of Terengganu people by stopping the oil royalty to Pas-led state government, then the same principle applied here, that all the money belongs to UMNO and ONLY UMNO. Then Terengganu, now SIC. What's so new?

Read the Quran, how God can sow the discords among these hypocrites, how they will disintegrate, and there's only one ending for these type of people...

Frankly, the sooner we can get the Mahathir clan's fingers out of the pie, the better.

The hypocrisy of Mahathir and his son is that they claim they have no faith in the present government, yet insist on still wanting to sit in Executive positions of GLC's and other government-related boards.

This is what we call thick-skinned tak-malu cases. And also hypocrites of the highest order.

Rocky,

You mean Mokhzani thinks he got the post because he was qualified and not because he was an UMNO member and the son of the Prime Minister?

He must be disappointed

Kinabinatangan said...

SIC is a government-linked company (see Azalina and Ismail's statements).

Mokhzani is now no more a part of the government since he has quit UMNO.

So why should he cling on to the SIC?

That is the rationale.

By the way, why are you being supportive of Mokhzani, Rocky?

As one of the comment givers here said... how did Mokhzani become SIC chairman in the first place... connection bapak la! Bukan merit, betul tak? So whats wrong getting rid of him since he didnt get in or become chairman out of merit?

The fundamental problem with malaysian politics, particularly UMNO, is nepotism and cronyism aka CORRUPTION.

This example is so obvious and why cant we just say UMNO is corrupt-ridden organization. Given any chance almost every member will grab the opportunity to be next on queue to the gravy train. This is so called NEP to help the Bumiputeras - in practice, only UMNOputreras get the first bite to the cake, crumbs passed down to other Bumiputeras. For non-Bumi not all is lost because they do get some gesture of charity - so most need to learn to be independent.

History has shown organiszations such as UMNO will face its demise and a new better world will arise. Unfortunately, many Rakyat have to pay the price, worse if our natural resources, oil & gas, run out before UMNO is cremated/reformed.

How wrong that our previous PM only think of the future of Malays. Dr. M may have many traits of Leadership, but his twisted plans to promote Ketuanan Melayu is flawed. In politics his plan using the racial issue is spot on. How can an Indian be accepted as a Malay? - at a stroke of the pen via the constitution! All this is possible because the Rakyat is educationally backwards. No wonder, the ruling Govt wants to keep our youth this way.

Once you are out you are forgotten
Casting out the ex-UM-NO
The bad guys in the party

If the able person can do a job for the company
There is no reason to find fault on him
Asking a person to resign from his company’s post
Politicians should know the separation of powers
Apparently these leaders are just cold turkey buzzards
Waiting for the kill on the desert storm

They want to get the spoils
Before the crush coming their ways
Let them have their choices
When the ground splits into
People will wave them goodbye

Like past UMNO presidents gone
Left the party when the ruling leaders forgot them
Only once a while singing praises
Yet the sincerity isn’t there in their hearts and souls

Don`t waste your time on SIC. Do a forensic audit on SIC - are they making money or losing money?

Are the figures reported on the attendance of F1 correct or fictitious figure including non paying spectators i.e Loads of School Children under the PR word of Bringing F1 To School / or Bringing School Children to fill up the empty seats at Topaz, Citrine, Tower and G Hillstand?

Night races in SIC? You must be kidding. Hillstands G, K2. E, C1, C2 & C3 are full of snakes, norturnal insects i.e Scorpions, Jenglots, Che Pon, Langsuir etc. How to watch the race in peace?

Don`t spent the money on Night racing facilities...it will be down the monsoon drain.

Katanya selalu Pak Lah dan kroni. Apa pula kisah Tun Mahathir dan kroni di sini?

"Mokhzani who has recently quit UMNO should step down as the SIC (Sepang International Circuit) because the Minister of Tourism is not in favour of him. Mokhzani insist that he does not get paid but the event organizer for all the events is organized by his wife’s company. Mokhzani’s wife’s brothers are also involved in this issue."

duelsome said...

Mokhzani SHOULD and MUST step down! Not saying that SIC belongs to umno. But it also DOES NOT belong to Mokhzani his family or even his father! The Ministers might have their own prerogative for asking him to give SIC up, but how the hell the Ministry can get to work effectively if Mokhzani is still holding on to that SIC baby of his??

onesometwo said...

It is so bloody obvious I think that Mokhzani still wants to hold on to SIC. Isn't it obvious you think? His wife and family members are the ones organizing the events related to the F1. Of course he still wants to hold on to his SIC post so he can keep his family in all the glittery F1 action!

Why not take THAT as the reason the Ministry wants to make Mokhzani quit?

snadyow said...

Hey some comments here give a totally different twist to it. Some comparing this Mokhzani issue to Pak Lah's "pakatan family". LOL. Got a point. It is in a way true also that Mokhzani is in SIC just because he is Tun M's son. After years of millions worth coming in because of the events you think it is easy for Mokhzani to let go of SIC? I don't think so. I bet the other M family members wouldnt want him too.

Bru, you have a good point that SIC does not belong to umno (the hell they think they so taiko ar??!) But Mokhzani should accpet the fact that SIC does not belong to Tun M inc.

phillix-starscreamer said...

I don't get it. Everyone keeps throwing knives at Pak Lah and all other ministers for nepotism and chronism and such but it seems okay for Mokhzani to do so. I see a lot of things going on about his wife's company including his wife's brothers etc.

LOL. Probably Mokhzani and Mahathir should also be labelled "sick duos" too for whatever they are doing under our noses all this while under "F1" and "SIC" name.

Saya di syarikat saya..saya lantik seseorang..kalau saya suruh berhenti..saya yg akan buat. Ada logik ke..bila menteri kata suruh Mohzani berhenti tetapi paklah kata dia suka jika orang berterus terang...telus dan terbuka??? Apa cakap menyimpang mcm nie?...

Dulu senang..kita kalau nak maki dr M senang ...sebab dia sendiri yg akan jawab semua tuduhan. Tengok mcm paklah..dia buat2 bagus tapi guna orang lain buat kerja kotor. Tu saya kata..pemimpin mesti berani..bukan dipimpin.

So sapa yg tak substance?...bukan susah..surat dah kasi..isi jea tarikhnya dan suruhlah pak pacak Abdullah kasi..senang!!!

Lainlah kalau dah hantar surat tapi mohzani tak nak lepaskan..itu cerita lain. Malah benda nie boleh buat tak payah keluar media..so kalau keluar media takkan mohzani nak diam...

ps: Ada berani ke paklah?..

Third world mentality in the rank of Badawi cabinet.What a silly joke they use Menteri KBS and Menteri Perlencungan as a pawn.
Based on PRU12 hipothesis result,more than half of government employee are not voting or choosing UMNOor BN.Lucky to be save by undi pos.This mean that more than half gov. employee who don't vote for UMNO need to resign with immediate effect.

As Dr.Mahathir is not an UMNO member, we are waiting for them(Azalina/Sabri) to fire Mahathir from Chairman Petronas and Proton. Dare they?

Mokhzani mesti letak jawatan! Cukup-cukuplah kumpul kekayaan. Buat malu je daddy hang beria-ia kutuk Pak Lah tak nak letak jawatan. Hang patutnya berani letak jawatan. Tak payah la nak main 'reverse psychology' suruh Pak Lah letak tarikh. Hang pun sama pengecut.
Bosan dah tengok keluarga hang anak-beranak kaya raya.

MOKHZANI MESTI LETAK JAWATAN

Dato Mokh,
Lepaskan lah jawatan tu. Bukannya engkau hard-up pada jawatan tu. Kencana Oil lagi hebat.

Lagipun, SIC banyak penyakit.
1. Spectators menurun setiap tahun.
2. Bakat2 baru tiada.
3. Selalu gaduh dengan GLC atau bijak pandai lain ( konon pandai )
4. Musium Otomobil punyalah boring.
5. Turn-Over staff terlalu tinggi.
6. Staff yang ada pun dah mula turun bukit. Lemah.
7. Kaunter tiket selalu rosak.
etc...

Dear Rocky,

The politics, and the agenda aside, mokhzani should step down as SIC chairman on one count only -- that he is ineffective. The man has done little to justify his position, ask motorsports writer arnaz. I posted something like this in rizal's blog but it didnt come out, some sports blogger he is. rizal is not as objective as he claims to be, he has his agendas too. Bro, mokhzani is useless and he should go, and it has nothing to do with him quitting umno, both ismail sabri and azalina were silly to call for his resignation based on such a shallow reason.

since all of you nak Dato Mokhzani letak jawatan, who do think will take over his place? you think the new person will not tarik org org dia sekali?.

Nak cakap pasal SIC tu banyak duit, you all dah semak account SIC? are you all aware that SIC do not have much money? Please check your facts dulu before you open your mouth. Live & Lound Concert tu siapa punya company yang buat? Pak Lah punya family yang buat. Nak tahu...duit Tourism habis di sebat. Why you all tak buka mulut? Berapa puluh juta habis. selidik dulu sebelum nak cakap. Azalina tu...tak ada hormat kan agong pun. Dia tu biadap. Tak masuk ajar. She is full of shit!!!. Azalina didnt do anything for sports masa dia jadi menteri sukan. dia sombong,bongkak,angkur.

Nak suruh orang berhenti, cermin muka awak tu dulu. sama dgn si sabri tu. Azalina & Sabri, stop suruh orang berhenti...buat kerja awak tu elok elok. What goes around comes around.
