IT'S EVE of Hari Raya Korban and I can't help but recall our kedai kopi chit-chat at Seri Pacific hotel last night. Only two other big groups were at the coffee house - one that included a former Minister of Tourism and another consisting of veteran Malay artists. We kept to ourselves and to our corner, speaking freely but sometimes in hushed tones with our host whose job is to try and know all things that concern the security of this country.
We chatted about who will likely go in Najib Razak's major Cabinet overhaul, which is eagerly anticipated to happen before year end. Our host thinks the PM will sacrifice THREE ministers. All males. All have served at least 3 PMs and must have served them well but it's time to go. Our host's 3 names do not correspondent with my 3 names but I take comfort in the fact that at least we both have one name in common.
I'm NOT saying that Najib will drop 3 ministers. It's me wishing that he would. For his own good. For the good of this country.
So let's see ...
In the meantime, I wish all Selamat Hari Raya Korban. May our sacrifices not be in vain and have the Almighty's redha. Selamat menunaikan fardhu Haji to all Muslims, especially to para haji from Malaysia including our Attorney-General, Abdul Gani Patail and my two room-mates from ITM.
