Hello everyone…its been a while since we wrote to this blog.
Since the last article, the nation has just celebrated our 60th independence day as well as our own Malaysia day. Looking back at all the struggles we have gone through, it is a proud moment for all Malaysians to come this far and see how we have moved on from the shackles of the British empire to becoming a develop nation. Lets be proud of that, at least looking back at what is happening to our country situation as we speak right now.
Looking around the country, it sure looks like not everyone has moved on with the nation…some still looks like they are still stuck in the time era where we still bow to the colonial powers that used to rule the country…wondering who?? Come on folks…. Who else but Axiata Group Berhad and their local operating company, Celcom Axiata Berhad.
You must be wondering why …well what’s new.
To begin with, just look at their senior leadership team. I mean are they all Malaysians run by Malaysians or hmmmm? This seems to be one of the few GLC, apart from MAS, which believes that they still need to rely on foreigners to run Khazanah owned company.
Just for everyone’s benefit, Axiata has 5 foreigners holding very strategic positions. From their Group Chief Financial Officer, Group Chief Strategy Officer, Group Chief Technology Officer.. just to name a few. Google them folks….
Celcom is even worse. Out of the so called M8 (previously M7), only 3 are true Malaysian.. The other four are Germans, Indian and New Zealander. The deputy CEO is a nasi campur/chap fan but behaves like a mat salleh as he is not bothered to respect the laws of the Islamic religion. Just check out our coverage on him in the previous article where he is drinking alcohol openly! Apparently he doesn’t treat the staff well, he screams, lambast them in email, acts smartly and maneuver things in his schedule just because he is afraid of his own wife/shadow…..hang on!!!! Did I said wife……..?
60 years have gone by since independence but Axiata and Celcom seem to be behind time.. Is this Tan Sri Jamal’s doing where he is known to be a person who loves mat sallehs compared to Malaysians?
Come on Jamal.. You looked composed in all your antics but are you a real gentleman or a man who hides behind….. Anyway since he removed Dato Sri Shazalli Ramly, a highly dynamic and successful CEO who drove Celcom to 11 years of consecutive growth with a retired 64 year old German , Michael Kuehner. I’m not saying Shazalli is a great guy but the transit has gone worst off with this German chap who is dragging the company down the gutter. We have been told that moral of the employees are at an all time low and there is a general hatred towards the German CEO. Worse still, the German seems to be on a path to retrench the Malaysians who are working for Celcom!!!
Why do we still do this despite 60 years of independence?? Have the nation not developed enough talented Malaysians to take on these key roles?? Or is it because Tan Sri Jamal just loves these mat salleh kissing his behind?? Does the Khazanah folks really know what’s happening? I mean with Jamal helming such a huge organisations run by this mat sallehs, then what’s the point it is run by Khazanah in first place?
Sell it to Maxis or Digi or whoever out there cause even Digi is run by Malaysians. Their senior management are mostly Malaysians as well. Why is that we have foreigners running the show? Why would these foreigners be interested in growing these companies? They are not Malaysians, all they would care about is their fat salaries. Living a luxurious life etc etc. The long term future of these companies is not their concern!! Hit and run once they get their money! I don’t know… anybody care to comment?
I know there would be certain quarters that are not happy about this write up but rightfully to begin with is this right? Secondly is the morale of the staff high? We went to blue cube in pavilion the other day, oh my gosh the que was long and the staff was generally down with no concern or empathy on their display of interest to help the customers. Thus I presume there was a long que outside. We feel remorse and pity with the staff.
The government has to take action as this is a GLC, owned by Khazanah!! This is truly embarrassing to the nation and its people, Malaysians in particular.
Hopefully, the real GLC will finally stand up!!
With the recent case of several dignity and kids who were perished in the fire, Malaysia would like to wish every individual of them Your Majesty King, and to the beautiful kids out there our condolences to each and everyone of you. God bless
Selamat Hari Merdeka dan Selamat Hari Malaysia!!
