Is TM speeding back to the days of “Speedy Gonzales”?

After a lull in the wrong doings in Tourism Malaysia (TM), another bombshell is in the works.

The “Abang – Adik” Shows. .   Left: YB Menteri Datuk Mohammadin Bin Hj Ketapi Right: Datuk Musa Yusuf, the DG of TM

 

The newly minted DG, Datuk Musa Yusuf, who was in the centre of the Speedy Gonzales scandal, is again implicated in another controversy related to the politics within MOTAC/TM.

When Datuk MusaYusuf was first appointed the DG of TM, his appointment could not be confirmed by the TM’s Board because at that material time he was didn’t have a letter of clearance from MACC. Quite rightly so! Yours truly has been informed that within a short span of two weeks or so after his non-confirmation, Datuk Musa managed to obtain a letter of good character or clearance from MACC!  We can only  hope that Puan Latheefa Koya, the new DG of MACC, will investigate how could Datuk Musa be given a clean bill of health when he was at least appeared to have been involved in the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 million Geeko Deal.

Please read the next paragraph to learn about Datuk Musa’s involvement in the said scandalous deal.

For the benefits of new readers, in November 2017 Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (Geeko) was incorporated with Koperasi Kakitanggan MOTAC (KOPEMA) as one of its shareholders.  Datuk Musa Yusuf is the President of KOPEMA!

On 19 January 2018 Datuk Musa Yusuf had cleverly devised a scheme known as “Promosi Bersama Tencent/Geeko Tech Bagi  Promosi Pemasaran Digital (Smart Tourism)” (“Promosi Bersama”),  which was actually to appoint Geeko to do a so-called “study” to appoint Geeko for the so-called ‘Digital Marketing’.  Datuk Musa’s clever scheme or the so-called “Promosi Bersama” cost TM a whopping RM1,167,900.00.  Please read Is Tourism Malaysian is Everyone ATM?“.

The Players in the Scandalous Speedy Gonzales Deal

You will note that on 9 January 2019 the corporate genius and the former Chairman of Tourism Malaysia, Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei, and Ms Elizabeth  Ken, the media specialist of Redberry Media Group, were arrested and detained by MACC for four days in connection with the scandalous Speedy Gonzales Geeko. Six months have elapsed and there is no sign of both of them being charged. Despite Datuk Musa, was in the centre of the scandalous Speedy Gonzales deal, he has been awarded with a clean bill of health by MACC!

Dato’ Dr Siew is the current Chairman of Ancom Bhd.

Despite the arrest and detention of Dato’ Siew and Ms Elizabeth Ken, the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 millions has yet to be terminated. Why?

Puan Latheefa Koya should also investigate into this scandal!

Just now yours truly has received this comment from a reader:

… there is an anonymous letter circulating among the Civil Service claiming some interference involving the Motac M … members towards procurements in the Ministry. The letter also stated a pact between a group of officer aka Little Napoleons to out the current KSU incited by the … to an extent to try and put in place the ex-KSU who retired back into service. As the letter was dated 15 Jun 2019 and a visit by the Minister to KSN does suggests a certain degree of truth in the letter. …”

We can only hope that the above comment was not true.  Yg Bhg Datuk KSN please take note of the above.  We also hope that Datuk KSN will not confirm Datuk Musa Yusuf as the DG of TM.

  1. The 7 page anonymous letter to YAB Tun M is very interesting. The nonsense of the Minister and his little napoleons are exposed. Instead of SPRM investigate Musa the musang, SPRM gave him a clearance letter. Let us all hope that SPRM headed by Lateefa Koya will take the necessary actions against Musang up for coming with the devious scheme known as the Joint Promotion and Geeko was paid more than RM1 million just to do a BS study to appoint itself. What a joke!

  2. YB if you have a copy of the letter of 15 June to the PM, please publish for everyone to read about the “tin kosong” MOTAC minister and his nonsense. I heard the little Napoleon like Musa has not been spared.

  3. I would not assume Latheefa Koya knows the full background to Speedy Gonzales deal. She’s too new.

    I hope someone gives her a detailed written explanation and the charges are followed up on.

  4. The 7 page letter going around MOAC like wild fire. The Minister’s shit is hitting the fan. We hope that SPRM will also get the letter. I agree that YB should publish it here for all to read about the brainless Minister.

  5. With the Mr Blur as Minister you will get endless bombshells in MOTAC & TM! Musa is so tainted with the scandalous Geeko deal and yet the Minister saw it fit to appoint Musa as DG of TM. MOTAC will be going down the drain under this Ketapi.
