The New Straits Times has, most unusually, published exposures of the alleged involvement of:
(1) 2 close associates of former Finance Minister Daim Zainuddin in the Metramac case, and
(2) the scion of a senior official in the Home Ministry in the illegal detention of a Paki-Malaysian citizen by Immigration authorities.
As the New Straits Times is a known organ of the UMNO-led government, its revelation of such alleged scandals could indicate that manoeuvrings for ministerial positions by certain UMNO personalities have begun, perhaps in anticipation of the rumoured Cabinet reshuffle.
Let the games begin, but sang kancils better stay out of the way as powerful elephants battle!
