My top five favorite Umno leaders

Much had been said about bad Umno people. The Pakatan gang have been going all out to highlight them. To a certain extent, they have been successful in running down Umno in that manner, especially among those who never really know much about the real Umno leaders.

I have to admit that there were indeed quite a number of these bad Umno people. The selfish, greedy and even out right evil. Nonetheless, I have also met many more Umno people who are sincere, humble and good. Based on that, I have concluded that it is not the party which is bad, but individuals.

Umno as a party has good ideals. It had done good for the country for more than half a century. The bumiputera have improved their lot from being almost 70 per cent living in poverty at the start of 1970s. Despite being still the poorest ethnic group, they are now much better off than before. The non-bumiputera, especially the Chinese, despite complaints from some, are doing even much better.

If Umno people are all as rotten as accussed, I don't think this country could even reached its current level of development. Yes, Umno is not perfect, but as far as I'm concerned, the party do have more good than bad people.

In conjunction with the Umno general assembly which starts tomorrow, I would like to introduce five Umno leaders whom I had personally met and found to be good guys. I present them here as according to whom I like most -

5. Datuk Sufian Awang. A lawyer by training and is the number one exco member of Umno Youth. The guy is as straight as an arrow and works hard not just for the party but also the ordinary folks living in the area where he lives in Kuantan. One of the best hope of Umno's future.


4. Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed. The man in charge of Kelantan Umno. I first met him almost 15 years ago. A bureaucrat who prefers to work hard rather than wasting too much time and energy on politicking. He should be a role model for Umno's second liners.


3. Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir. Another unassuming Umno man. I first met him before he became active in politics. At that first meeting I didn't even know that he is a son of the then PM DS Dr Mahathir Mohamad. We talked about scuba diving at that time. A soft spoken and very pleasant man. He may be deemed to be silver spooned but I found him to be sincere and works hard to do good for all. Another best hope for Umno's future.


2. Datuk Seri Najib Razak. He is the only one among my top five favorite Umno leaders whom I never had a personal conversation with. But I had the privilege of closely observing his work as a wakil rakyat. I actually did not have a very good impression of Najib before that. Only after I had personally observed how he connects with his constituents in Pekan that I realized how sincere he is when dealing with the ordinary folks.


1. Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman. I had written so much about Ghani that I don't think I need to write here again on why I think so highly of him. Actually, the real reason I put him as my number one favorite Umno leader is because I know him more than the other leaders. Not unlike any other man, he has his faults but as an Umno leader, he embodies the best the party could offer. Sincere, sensible, honest, selfless, incorruptible, works hard and almost devoid of nonsense. As a Johorean, I am glad that my home state has him as a leader.


There are many more good Umno leaders other than these five men. Some of the women leaders are equally good. I wish I could put more of them here, but this posting may get too long if I do that.

Note: For this posting, I will not allow unsubstantiated personal attacks against these five Umno leaders featured here. So, for those who want to use this posting  as a platform to attack them, please forget it as I will spike off such comments. If anyone feels so strongly against any of these leaders and want to badmouth them, please set up your own blog and do it there. Thank you.

    2. UMNO tak jaga kepentingan hak Melayu16 December 2012 at 20:04

      Majlis Raja-Raja Melayu perlu bubarkan SKMM

      Raja-Raja Melayu mempunyai kuasa keatas tanah jajahanya dan segala sumber alam
      yang ada.

      Sumber alam selain dari air dan tanah adalah gelombang mikro yang terhad
      di sesuatu negeri.

      Oleh demikian pemberian gelombang mikro yang dibuat baru-baru ini untuk 2.6GHz
      dan Wimax sebelum ini adalah mencabul hak negeri-negeri Melayu.

      Seperti tanah dan air, negeri-negeri berhak mendapat cukai atau royalti ke atas penggunaan
      sumber alam.

      Perbuatan Suruhan Jaya Komunikasi Malaysia memberi secara percuma tanpa
      timbal balas kepada negeri-negeri adalah satu tindakan yang tidak berasas.

      Kedua, tindakan SKMM memberi gelombang mikero ini kepada syarikat-syarikat bukan Melayu mencabul
      perlembagaan yang memberi hak istimewa kepada orang Melayu.

      Bagi 2.6 GHz ini syarikat-syarikat Cina Redtont, Yeoh Tiong Lay, Vincet Tan
      (judi Toto) Syed Mokhtar (India Muslim) Digi (Cina), Maxis India adalah satu rompakan
      ke atas hak Melayu yang ditetapkan oleh Perlembagaan.

      Negeri Melayu berhak menerima royalti atau cukai keatas sumber alam Gelombang Mikero ini.

      Jika SKMM dan UMNO gagal memperbaiki keadaan ini maka perlulah Majlis Raja-Raja
      Melayu membubarkan SKMM satu badan persekutuan.

  4. Dear Big Cat, i concur with your statement - there are MANY good peoples in UMNO. Even at the Bahagian and Pemuda level. The problem is that these peoples will not win in UMNO's own election. UMNO has come to a stage whereby the giving of monies become 'white' and expected. The environment in UMNO breeds the other 'type' of leaders upward. That is the issue. It is a fact that had UMNO been winning in Kelantan, even Tok Pa will not last long.

    1. giving of monies started with Anwar Ibrahim, his rising in UMNO hierarchy is tremendous with the bribing to delegates, the bribing is apparent when he challenge Tun Ghafar Baba, it is no secret every division nominated him "awarded" 1M.

    2. You must be very sure. Abim under Anwar gives bride as a Islamic state?? Then go and proclaim more.

    How come a certain Khairy J didn't make your list?

    Maybe an English-style "Ivy League" type education doesn't impress you?

    Or, maybe, it's because Khairy talks commonsense at times, when most of Umno's leaders are in denial about globalisation and Malaysia's place in a region where China, the US and India are going to call the shots.

    1. Stupid statement. If Mahathir had wanted his sons to help his sons in politics, he would have done it when he was the UMNO president and the prime minister. He did not even allow his sons to be active in politics when he was the president of UMNO and had the political power. So, do you think Mahathir can help Mukhriz when he don't have poltical power? Mukhriz has to show his own political abilities unlike Anwar's daughter, Lim Kit Siang's son, Karpal Singh's son and Nik Aziz's son whose fathers are still in charge of their parties and have influences.

    Have no complain about No 5-2, but almost shoot of my chair about No 1! Have I been wrong about guys like Shahrir?

  13. I liked your article, BC. I do support the opposition generally, but for my own constituency I'd rather have a smart, honest and tolerant BN rep than a stupid/dishonest/intolerant opposition rep if that's who was on offer at the ballot box. I know your list is limited to people that you have met but a couple of other good UMNO leaders, in my view, include Shahrir Samad and Ku Li (based on the qualities mentioned above). It would be great to see a BC rating for national and state reps based on the qualities that you find important - 10 paws for a great rep, 1 for a lousy one - just an idea.

  15. Rich girl rides a limousine
    Poor girl rides a truck
    And the only ride that BigCat gets
    Is when she gets a fxxk

    All her heroes drive Bentleys and Ferraris. UMNO supporters get to drive Protons, and they are sooooo satisfied. The rest of the rakyat depend on public transport.

    1. I think you were right about Tok Pa.
      There was an event not too long ago where a group of cabinet ministers walked right in front of us. I can't recall what the event was. I was standing like in second or third row from the passage they'd walked. While some of the cabinet ministers just nod and smile as they passed through, and some even had a tunnel vision and walking straight to their cars but when it came to Tok Pa, he shook almost everyone's hands along the way.
      And then, out of the blue, he made eye contact with me, which was quite far from the place where he walked. He then reached out his hand long towards me and offer a hand shake. It put me off guard and sheepishly grabbed his hand.
      To be honest, I wasn't that thrilled to meet them and even had low opinion on some of them, but that episode taught me something about humility.

Why? you dont like malaysians to be rich? you think everyone who drives a bentley is corrupt? you still want malaysians to live in poverty up in the trees? you envy rich people? you think nobody works hard? it is only people like you who sit in front of the computer whacking the gomen who cannot move up. if you look for business opportunities ( created by the gomen ) you too can be rich and have a couple of rolls in your driveway. stop bashing the gomen.

    4. Work hard at stealing from rakyat..21 December 2012 at 18:35

      Bro dont be so egoistic. Where is the source of wealth creation?

      Factories and products. Tell me which china man made his billions from his iphone? No it is from gambling, raping rainforests etc.

      None. These billionaires made their money by corrupting UMNO gomen ministers. UMNo President by giving shares to their sons.

      Monopolies and concessions unnecessaryily given to these cronies. bro.

      Don t talk lah. Rainforests are stripped of balak by chinese and BN politicians who must approve the licenses.

      The easy money is in oil, Petronas these are the real wealth distributed to cronies through projects.
      100m walk away from Pavilion to KLCC.

      how many houses can built one?

      I agree with the commentator these buggers work hard at stealing from the rakyat. Pity the soldiers, policemen who really give their lives to the nation but remain poor.
