With the number of transgressions against the state of Sarawak, there is no reason why Sarawak should keep him in power.
From Free Malaysia Today:
'Pek moi' the favourite target of opposition
The first act that Pakatan Rakyat leaders should do if they win the April 16 Sarawak polls is to seize all the files in Taib Mahmud's office, says a PKR leader.
KUCHING: Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud must be having sleepless nights nowadays. Post-nomination day on April 6, one after another, Pakatan Rakyat leaders are training their guns on his allegedly corrupt ways.
They freely flag revelations of corruption, cronyism and administrative abuses as well as the businesses owned by his friends and family members.
If Taib does get to sleep its probably filled with nightmares - which even his so-called '13 bomohs' can't seem to charm away.
Every 'ceramah' (political campaign), whether at IOI Food centre, Hui Sing Garden, Third Mile, 7th Mile bazaar, King Centre, Green Road or at Stutong Market, the issues flogged by the opposition is always related to Taib.
Some describe him as "pek moi" (white hair), others say he is the king of the "two-legged crocodiles" and yet others describe him as the new "white rajah" of Sarawak, who is more cruel than the colonialists.
For instance at the Stutong Market 'ceramah' organised by PKR last night, former Perak Menteri Besar Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin alleged that 'pek moi" is the most corrupted leader in the country.
"Sarawak is rich having all the resources such as gas, oil, timber and land, yet her people are the second poorest in the country," he said.
"The people are poor because of Taib, and therefore we must change Taib and his government," he added.
He called on the people in the Batu Lintang constituency to vote for See Chee How who is a PKR candidate.
DAP national adviser Lim Kit Siang is of the view that Taib is trying to mirror famed illusionist David Copperfield.
Alluding to Taib's often quoted "I want to make Sarawak the richest state in Malaysia" Lim said: "He wants to be David Copperfield by trying to turn the poorest state into the richest state.
"In fact he is turning the richest state into the poorest state."
Batu Lintang voters, Lim said, must show to Taib that they do not want him to continue to rule Sarawak, adding that they should have enough of his 30 years of corrupted government.
"We must make sure that Sarawak is no longer BN's 'fixed deposits' or as their puppets, because we shall show them we are not stupid," he said, adding that the people of Sarawak must create a political history by ousting the Taib government.
Another speaker, the MP for Ampang and PKR women's wing chief, Zuraida Kamaruddin said that if Pakatan Rakyat wins the next election on April 16, the Pakatan leaders must immediate seize all the files before they take them away.
"We must arrest Taib and his ministers and bring them to face the law of the country as they have committed crimes against the people of Sarawak" she alleged.
Taib's alleged properties overseas are worth billions of ringgit. He has been accused of giving away to his children's companies government contracts and prime land.
His sister's timber concessions and land-grabbing of native customary rights (NCR) land are the daily and nightly topics for campaigning.
"These are the issues that the people like to hear and that will determine where their votes will go," said a pensioner who attended the 'ceramah' at Stutong.
"After hearing all these, I will sure vote for change," he said, adding that "enough is enough."
