Born Loser?

Hantu Laut

Jeffery Kitingan has always wanted to be number one.He has roamed the political wilderness and has 'takoran bangkad' (change shirts) many times in search of his elusive dream, to be 'first among equals'

Since the ouster of PBS as government of the state of Sabah in 1994 where he played the role of the grand master of political connivance and convenience he has joined not less than four other political parties. Every political party that he joined he mounted a challenge to the leadership for the number one post. He failed in his every attempts and got himself kicked out of the party.

History repeats itself, now, the very same man who kicked his brother, him and his party out of the government in 1994 has kicked his ass again.

Now, Jeffery can go back to his people and say never trust the West Malaysians whether they come from UMNO or PKR, they are all the same.We, Sabahans, are screwed either way.What we need is a Sabah party to take back the government.

SAPP might just open its doors for him.Would Yong Teck Lee takes the risk? For political expediency Yong might consider the parochial grassroots that Jeffery could bring into his party from the support of the hillbillies.

Alternatively, the doors to PBS would be opened to him to enter with ease, probably, much to the consternation of others in the party and for those who feared his passion for displacing the incumbents. He says he is keeping his option open.

This leaping, jumping and croaking frog has only himself to blame for his political chicanery and greed for power.

Is Jeffery Kitingan a doggone loser? Brutus Thornapple would have jumped with joy if he knew there exists someone worse than him.His erudition for deceit is his own failing and the castings of his public contempt and obloquy.

After the fall of PBS and his failed bid with other political parties he applied for membership in UMNO but was rejected.As cunning as the proverbial fox he deceivingly used his indigenous name Gapari to fool the UMNO headquarters and was accepted.Sabah UMNO eventually revoked his membership when they found out the humiliating mistake.

Is the road to hell paved with good intentions?

Jeffery Kitingan may have the answer.

Where next, Mr Kitingan?

I am pleased that Jeffery is out of PKR. His history and character is tainted. You are right, he cannot be number 2 when number 1 is his aim.

However, Christina Liew's resignation from the Centre Committee is regretted indeed. As you say she has no skeleton in her cupboard.

Will PKR survive in Sabah is a good question.

Yes, Jeffrey Kitingan is a born loser. Anyway, for those who are sounding the death knell for PKR because of his departure, this is premature: it's not even dead in Sabah, let alone the whole of Malaysia.

Jeffrey's departure may very well be a blessing for the party. In a posting to the previous blog entry, SM was right in saying that Anwar did the right thing by not giving way to the power-hungry Jeffery Kitingan. I agree with Hantulaut that Christina Liew is a big loss for PKR.

But not all is over yet. Anwar Ibrahim is the master of turning bad fortune around. Let's see what he does here. I am still 50-50 about his chance of success in Sabah though. Anyway, Whatever you want to say about PKR, its control in West Malaysia is secure, and it won't be easy to dislodge it from Selangor -- so long as that stupid UMNO dentist is around, making all the wrong moves. Sabah PKR, of course, is very far from what the party is in Selangor, and it's not even anywhere near what it has achieved in Sabah's southwestern neighbour -- yes, be prepared for some surprises there.

To conclude, it's delicious irony ain't it, that many of the problems that Anwar now faces in Sabah were created when he tried and "succeeded" in manipulating the political situation in the state when he was Deputy PM? The problems he created here continue to haunt him and his present party today.

HL,

A good rundown on Jeffrey like this certainly has made Anwar righteous in his decision to dislodge a bad oil into the already polluted sea of Sabah's politics.

Anwar has made a bold move in picking an unknown angel instead of a known devil.

Thanks HL, you made my mind easy about Anwar by your good paintwork on Jeffrey. You are not really a hantu HL, aren't you.

Dear HL,

Been a while since I left a comment in your blog.

Well, he did it again and not unexpected. Anyway, nothing about him has been the same after that stint in Kamunting.

FMZam,

I don't think Anwar is being righteous,he is just a poor judge of character and arrogant.If he is righteous, he wouldn't replaced Christina Liew.This lady has spent almost 10 years screaming her guts out for PKR and look how she was repaid.

THe success of the last GE has got into the heads of PKR leaders, they have become arrogantly stupid.Take the stupid move by Khalid Ibrahim publicly asking Badrul Hisham to resign. He forgets that Badrul was elected by the people not him.Our parliamentary system does not recognise political party as elected holder of the constituency, it only recognises individual.Out of his stupidity, now, they have lost one assemblyman to UMNO.

The last I met Jeffrey was at the Keamaatan at Flamingo Hotel 2007, using a crutch after his 4wd overturn. Joseph call out to him 'my brother' but he replied with a weak smile.

I personally feel that no matter which party we are aligned to, family is still family, we cant let anything to go between us, furthermore is KD festival, a celebration among the KD community and politics must not be brought in.

HL,

Yes you bring up a good point! Badrul was elected by the people. However, Badrul was not doing his job & as Badrul's "boss" Khalid had a right to ask him to resign (however, he should have done so "internally").
As for losing Badrul to UMNO...well...good riddance to bad rubbish...UMNO can keep Badrul...after all that's the type of MP they have anyway! Just watch there will be more characters like Badrul leaving PKR for UMNO.
It's good that the "losers" are slowly getting out of the PKR...it will be much better for the PKR in the next GE to field "worthy" candidates.
