He calls himself a devoted Christian. To perpetuate that religious and holier than thou myth, every single sentence of his is punctuated with verses from the Bible. More incredibly, he would often pray by placing his hand on the shoulder or even the head of his listeners, as if he is the priest or pastor.
That’s Chua Jui Meng for you. One of the greatest hypocrites to walk on this earth. For decades, this smooth talking lawyer-politician enjoyed the benefits of being a Barisan Nasional minister but when he lost in his party elections, and realising there was no political future left, he crossed over to Pakatan Rakyat and sang a different political tune.
It was not a question of political belief but simply a matter of political gain. The husband of two wives, who sings loudly about Christianity, has now found himself in a direct clash with Johor DAP leader Dr Boo Cheng Hau, who has called Chua Jui Meng, a black hand.
It has taken Dr Boo a while to realise what a bastard Jui Meng has been but it’s better late than never, as they said. In his pursuit of selfish ambition, Jui Meng has stabbed his Pakatan Rakyat colleagues and has bad-mouthed them, but then told the press that he had always been patient to his PR counterparts.
As Health Minister, it is open knowledge, within the pharmaceutical industry, that he blocked the entry of Viagra into Malaysia. His demand was millions in ringgit for his signature. We do not know how much was he eventually paid by the distributor, Pfizer, but we can be sure it was a hefty sum.
If Chua Jui Meng gets a seat in the general election, he will be one of the oldest candidates at the age of 70 years old. Don’t be fooled by his dyed black jet hair. He should be spending his time with his grandchildren instead of still crossing swords with his political foes. He should be enjoying his ill-gotten loot and be on his knees, seeking forgiveness from God, for all the sins he has committed as he enter his twilight years.
We offer the same advice to Anwar Ibrahim, the serial adulterer. Spend time with your wife, Wan Azizah, who has openly demonstrated her disgust by staying away from all PKR political events. She has tolerated so much abuses simply because of the family honour. We feel sad for her because she has kept all these to herself.
But Chua Jui Meng does not want to give up. He wants the fame, recognition and power that he once had. He wants all that back.
