An audio clip went viral recently which allegedly was a recorded conversation between UMNO President Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, and was reportedly first uploaded on Facebook.
It’s reported that the first half of the clip is of Zahid’s speech at the recent UMNO General Assembly before it cuts off to the alleged telephone call.
In the recording, the two individuals were having a friendly chat where the man who sounded like Anwar praised the other person for his speech.
The man also said that it’s the first time in 22 years that he watched the General Assembly.
The other person later replied that he learned it from his teacher – the man who sounded like Anwar.
Zahid denied that he was in the clip
Zahid reportedly denied that he had a phone conversation with Anwar Ibrahim and said that he will ask his officer to file a police report to find the ‘mastermind’.
On Facebook, the UMNO leader expressed his disgust on the matter and added that he was shocked to find out about the clip.
As the President of UMNO, I will not violate any decisions that have been decided by the UMNO Supreme Council and the UMNO General Assembly. I have directed my officer to immediately make a police report to investigate and identify the mastermind behind this “scheme of thing”.UMNO President Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi via Facebook
Meanwhile, the PKR President hasn’t come out with a statement on the issue.
UMNO is not happy
UMNO Supreme Council Member Datuk Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi slammed the leak and likened it to the time when US president Richard Nixon resigned over the Watergate scandal in 1972, based on reports by The Star.
Meanwhile, Padang Rengas MP Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz was more interested in Zahid stepping down as UMNO President as Nazri feels Zahid is now a serious liability to the party.
He said to Malay Mail that the party must no longer be burdened by Zahid’s unresolved criminal charges.
