So now, Raja Petra Kamarudin, will be held in Kamunting for 2 years. This is also subject to the government's decision whether to release him on that time or simply extending his stay there.
So whatever RPK has ever forecasted , turned out to be mostly true. He did say, mere days before his detention, that he would soon be arrested and also would be held indefinitely for a very long time. Yesterday's newspaper headlines confirmed all that. He was right. At both counts. Read 'High-Stakes Poker Game Or Gunfight At The OK Coral?'
However he also mentioned in the same article that he believes Anwar Ibrahim can actually take control of government. Heck, many of us believed that but sadly, it wasn't meant to happened. Instead we get to watch Anwar creating headline after headline of which, is now sowing seeds of doubt and slowly distrust. RPK wrote in his pre-ISA posting (High-Stakes...), that if in the event September 16 doesn't see Anwar taking power as the next Prime Miniser, his credibility will then be largely affected. In my own opinion, Anwar Ibrahim, is at risk of being regarded a charlatan.
Yesterday was September 23rd. We were supposed to see Anwar and Pakatan Rakyat to already moving the vote for a motion of no confidence against the Barisan Nasional government. Read 'Opposition Momentum Slows'
I just received MalaysiaKini's SMS just a few moments ago. Anwar's sodomy case will be reconvening today.
What we are witnessing now is the BN government's backlash against its opposition.
What is going to happen from now onwards?
I don't know, we just have to wait and see then.
I'm out of popcorn. Anybody else want seconds?
