Zaki is a notable and very senior ‘Level Four’ character, who played very significant role in PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s failure as the Fifth Malaysian Prime Minister from November 2003 to April 2009.
Nastaha is someone who is a very close associate to Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak’s own ‘Level Four’, Datuk Omar Ong.
Firdaus is also a founding member of ‘libertarian think tank’ IDEAS, which recently came into flak when they worked closely with notorious former academician Aziz Bari.
How and why all of these personalities were brought into JCorp’s Kulim and Damansara Realty is a mystery. Neither any of them have relevant experience in plantations, property development nor FMCGs, which include powerful inflation-proff brands such as KFC, Pizza Hut and Ayamas.
The presence of Zaki, Natasha and Firdaus is suspiciously suggesting that ‘slicing JCorp up’ corporate maneuver. They would use ‘the market sentiments’ to justify a dislodging assets move such as that. As people who stood firmly by liberal thinking as they guidance and idealism for better Malaysia, they would not have the feeling of what Ali tried to do with JCorp, which was to develop Malay entrepreneurs. This include the entrepreneur and intra-preneur development programs, where hundreds of aspiring Malay entrepreneurs operate JCorp invested companies.
