Old Warrior Salleh Smells More Opportunities For Some Change

Malaysian Mirror - Ex-Sarawak strongman Salleh set to join the fray

Sarawak Headhunter's comments:

Salleh was one of the multi-millionaires created by Rahman in the 70's, reputed to have cash assets of RM60 million at that time, which he declared as RM6 million when he was made Deputy Education Minister (earning him the sobriquet "The 6 Million Dollar Man").

A gambler by nature, he reportedly lost 1 million GBP in a London casino in 1 night in the mid 70's. He is well known to be very stingy, calculative and cunning amongst his own relatives, let alone with outsiders, notwithstanding "blood being thicker than water". In his case it is probably money being thicker than blood.

Sarawakians who know him better will take anything he says with more than a pinch of salt. He is really more for the politics of self-interest than change. Hopefully he can change himself before trying to change others, but Sarawak Headhunter doesn't put too much hope in that.

This old fart wants to make a comeback because he cannot stand the fact that Taib is now the king of thrives and his 60 millions stolen from us is just a pittance. Or perhaps he has gambled away most of it and is now coming back for more helpings? Let's not be stupid enough to welcome such human trash.
