Politics is notoriously brutal, filled with wildly ambitious characters jockeying for influence in a competitive world.
Twitter user @apanakdikato using the name Dr Bigger Balls/Membalak, shared a screenshot of an alleged Whatsapp conversation between Barisan Nasional’s (BN) Sg Buloh candidate Khairy Jamaluddin and an unknown individual.
The posting was captioned: ‘KJ mengamok plak guys.. Semua kena f***.’
In the screenshot, Khairy allegedly told the other individual to sabotage UMNO Deputy President Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, more popularly known as Tok Mat. Khairy had allegedly said to split the votes but not to make it obvious.
Khairy also allegedly promised the unknown individual that he would be appointed his political secretary if the deed was done and he won in Sungai Buloh.
No Such Thing
Khairy immediately refuted the conversation, saying it was nothing more than lies and slander.
He said through a post on his Twitter that a police report would be made and a report would also be lodged with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM) against the Twitter account that uploaded the screenshot.
Khairy was Rembau MP for two terms starting in 2013 until he was sent to contest in Sungai Buloh this 15th General Election. Sg Buloh is a Pakatan Harapan (PH) stronghold, and it would be an uphill battle for Khairy.
Meanwhile, Khairy also called on the public to reject slander and dirty political tactics ahead of GE15 which will take place this Saturday.
