I had heard this song months ago as Anwar sang it almost everytime he gives one of his political talks.
Tanya sama Najib
Apa sebab goyang
Nanti jawab Najib
Sabah nak HILANG!
Back then, I was baffled by the point of the song. Of all the states, why Sabah? Is Sabah the only state Pakatan Rakyat felt hopeful for? If so, I would have thought that they should not advertise that fact; as Sabah alone cannot help them reach Putrajaya.
After all, Pakatan Rakyat won 5 states during the last general elections without singing such songs. Why are they gloating over one specific achievement? And by the way, what is that ‘achievement’?
Surprisingly, it was the Phillipines government who hit the nail on the head. They had discovered the connection between the Malaysian opposition party and the sultanate of Sulu as reported by the The Phillipines Inquirer on their article: ‘Gov’t intel eyes 3 groups abetting Sulu sultan’s claim’ (click here to read)
Whether the heirs of the sultanate of Sulu acted on their own to reclaim Sabah or were instigated by an external force to do so, one thing is certain, according to government intelligence sources: It was a business that proved too big for the heirs to handle on their own.
But apparently “some people” want to push it forward now. And why now, at this time, is one of the questions government intelligence is looking into.
“These are groups that wanted to ride on the Kirams’ pursuit with their own interests in mind,” one of the sources said.
Another source added: “There are a lot who can gain from this, not just in the Philippines but in Malaysia as well.”
The third group is allegedly the Malaysian political opposition, which is gearing up for general elections that may be called before June.
The intelligence officer said that one member of the Malaysian political opposition allied with Anwar Ibrahim was running for a post in Sabah.
“Apparently, this politician was one of those who spoke with the Kirams. He supposedly gave the opposition’s support to the Kirams’ claim to Sabah,” the source said. (The Phillipines Inquirer)
Needless to say, our medias quickly picked up the news and it spread like wildfire. Of course, Anwar sued TV3 and Utusan Malaysia for linking him to the Lahad Datu incident and not the real source of the news; infact he even denied the existence of such claims in The Phillipines Inquirer.
Like father, like daughter
This had happened before when Nurul Izzah blamed Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia for ‘twisting her statements’ when it was the opposition-linked news portal, Malaysia Kini who first reported the news and both Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia only ‘picked up’ the news from Malaysia Kini.
Ironically, the article does not mention Najib AT ALL as Anwar had claimed. Apparently, what he accused UMNO of “incapable of thinking of anything else” might be a subconcious confession of his own.
Can this Lahad Datu incident be the achievement Anwar was gloating about? Can Anwar be among the heartless and selfless plotters behind this violence? Is that why the first person who claimed that the Lahad Datu incident as a conspiracy was the vice-president of PKR, Tian Chua?
Anyway, a popular blogger Husin Lempoyang wrote that Anwar did not finish the song; so he continued the song for Anwar:
Tanya pada Sabah, apa sebab hilang
Nanti jawab Sabah, Sulu nak serang
Tanya pada Sulu, apa sebab serang
Nanti jawab Sulu, Anwar yang rancang.
Tanya pada Anwar, apa sebab rancang
Nanti jawab Anwar, inilah kerja Pakatan..
Saya sudah bilang, jangan ulang ulang
Kalau ulang ulang, I saman you …
