‘Losing Umno chief leaves the office bare’

AN UMNO divisional leader left a bare office for his successor after losing the post in the party’s recent elections, says party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Zahid did not disclose the identity of the former division leader, but said he was informed of the issue by the new division chief who had been elected to the post.

Zahid added that he will reveal further details at a more “suitable” event.

“The person who was entrusted with the divisional office felt that everything in the office belonged to him. So when the new leader came in to take over the post, what was left was just an empty office,” he said during a visit to the Seri Semarak public housing in Kuala Lumpur project here.
