|Bad drivers are not better than bad politicians - Anon|
I don't have a driver and I sometimes envy those who have. Only people with spare change or those who are senior enough in a corporation or government are chauffeur-driven. Most drivers these days are Malays and Indians, though many years ago Dr Mahathir Mohamad did have a Chinese neighbor to be his driver. I knew of a senior flamboyant diplomat who briefly had a female driver.
Malaysia's most famous driver is probably Azizan Abu Bakar, the man who was allegedly sodomized by a politician in the 90s. Since Azizan, drivers have been viewed suspiciously. But they have not been making headlines, until this week when two personal drivers linked to two well-known politicians lodged fantastic police reports:
Driver No 1: Abdullah Sani Said
(Personal Driver: There is attempt to assassinate Anwar)
Driver No 2: Nor Azman Azemi
(Artiste's driver tells on minister who pays RM100 thousand for each mating)
Both articles are courtesy of Keadilan Daily, the official website of Anwar Ibrahinm's PKR party, unfortunately. Driver no 2's police report was also highlighted by a PKR MP during a press conference yesterday.
Confirmed lah, Malaysia has the worst drivers in the world!
