Damansara, 29 July: I am sure the current shortage of passports is not the reason why the Immigration Department director-general Sakib Kusmi is being replaced by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's deputy chief commissioner, but people will make their own conclusions. Just as they will have their own assumptions about the appointment of Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad from the Attorney-General's Chamber as the new MACC chief replacing Abu Kassim. I would prefer someone from MACC itself to move up and take the position as the top anti-graft fighter but sometimes an "outsider" can provide a fresh perspective to help an organisation forge ahead. Wallahualam.
As for the shortage of passports, I do hope the new D-G is not as patient as his predecessor. A six-month wait for anything is too long.
