Mohd Arif Of Rodent Fees Fame Is New Selangor Financial Officer

Subang Jaya Municipal Council (SJMC) President Datuk Mohd Arif Abdul Rahman, the man directly responsible for the now notorious rodent fee scandal has been appointed as the new Selangor financial officer from Wednesday, replacing Datuk Ramli Mansor who has retired.

His appointment was announced Wednesday by Menteri Besar Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo. (Oh Oh!) At first the name didn't ring a bell, but when I read that the former MPSJ president has been chosen as financial officer, alarm bells and sirens hit me! Could it be true? The man who is still embroiled in a financial scandal appointed to a post involving big money? Then when I realised who chose him, everything sort of fell into place.

Ironically in the same press announcement Khir Toyo also said that the state government revoked the order confining rodent control to the councils 'panel' of companies, Mohd Arif's baby. He said only pest control companies registered with the National Pesticides Board would be allowed to conduct fumigation at eateries in the state and not panel companies.

The list of the registered companies would be posted on the local councils' websites, he said, adding that the operators of the premises were compelled to acquire certification that they were pest-free. So out went one monopoly cum money making scheme, and in came Mohd Arif to the heart of Selangor's khazanah. Lower level MPSJ staff who expected some 'good things' to come their way with the panel company monopoly would I'm sure be disappointed. That cannot be said of Mohd Arif. He has moved from the periphery of fiscal misdealings to become a major player in the centre of the 'Selangor Empire.'

Ha ha ha, our chief rodent transfer & appoint the former M*SJ rodent to the khazanah. They are working hand-in-hand. So, expect more pilferage in the future!

The Malaysian, please help keep an eye on them & expose more misdeeds in your blog.

Is the Selangor Sultan not embarrased about this? Should he not give some advice and counsel those involved? Sad really sad.

I hope Selangor Sultan will take severe action against the Menteri Besar and exco people who are corrupt. They have ruined the good name of my beloved state.
