Khairy Jamaluddin Has Qualities Of A Leader, Says His Mother

"My son has all the qualities of a leader," said Datuk Rahmah Abdul Hamid, mother of Khairy Jamaluddin who is contesting the Rembau parliamentary seat in the March 8 polls.

"Many people can be managers but not leaders. He (Khairy) has shown outstanding leadership qualities since he was small," she told Bernama outside the Merdeka Hall of the Rembau distric council, the nomination centre for the constituency.

Dressed in a baju kurung with a white scarf and a Barisan Nasional (BN) vest with the letters "KJ" (Khairy's initials), Rahmah, 72, initially declined to be interviewed but later relented.

Khairy, 32, who is also BN Youth and Umno Youth deputy chairman, is engaged in a straight with Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) supreme council member Badrul Hisham Shaharin, 30, for the seat.

Asked whether Khairy was capable of championing the lot of the people of Rembau, Rahmah said her son could do it because he was always committed in whatever he did.

"He is dedicated to the race, religion and country. Since his return to Malaysia nine years ago, that has been his mission. He is fully committed to everything that he does, no half-measures," she said.

Khairy received his Masters in Legal and Political Theory from University College London in September 1998 and holds a BA (Hons) in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from St Hugh College, Oxford University.

Asked for her message to her son, Rahmah said: "My message to him is only that we live in a world where people will remember our kind deeds and contributions and good behaviour."

Besides Rahmah, Khairy's wife, Nori Abdullah, who was also present, said she was very proud of her husband and was willing to shoulder the responsibilities of an elected representative's wife if Khairy was elected.

"I used to follow my father (Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) but now I follow my husband," she said, adding that she believed that Khairy would make a good elected representative.

"He is sincere in helping the people," said Nori, who left their five-month-old son, Jibreil Ali Jamaluddin Abu Bakar, at home in Gadong, near here. (Bernama)

***** Frankly I do not wish to take issue with an elderly lady who is justifiably proud of her son. However alarm bells did ring when she said, "
he is dedicated to the race, religion and country." Now where does that leave the other half of this country's population if God forbid, KJ becomes the Prime Minister? Is he going to be a pemimpin solely for the Malays to the exclusion of everyone else? The thought is frightening indeed.

Well he proved himself capable of leading his father-in-law, the PM, to a certain extent. As for leading the country, I am not too sure!

At the end of the day, all that he has said and done are a show of sandiwara. He lives and fights for himself and himself alone.

Khairy has qualities of leader? Pttuuuiii!!!! Leading what ? A bloody herd of kerbau to the nearby pond for drink? All he has proven is that he is nothing but a hot air balloon with nothing substantial to back himself up. More likely he's Mama's little boy and Father In Laws golden haired son at home. So that's why doting old Mama is so proud of him. I suppose she's very proud of him when he makes stupid comments and statements on TV. Oops sorry madam, you don't watch TV much now, do you? Oh well...that's a Mother's love.

Yes, the first thing that hit me when I read her comments was "he is dedicated to the race, religion & Country"! Not he is dedicated to King & Country! She should know, she's his mother.
The Race meaning Malays & religion meaning Islam. I think that says it all.
He has alreday shown these qualities I think.
The Rembau Voters have a duty to do to Malaysia!

Malaysian politics is lame. That's why he'll go far. Many idiots support him. What's with the bandana head gear? He thinks he looks cool? Dogshit!

I'm surprise the mom says ' dedicate to race...' I can imagine that he is either being brought up with that mind set or he is just the plain ambitious politician.

Not critising what the mom said, but it's annoying to my ears 'he is a leader when most people only knows how to be a manager'.

Frankly if you do not know how to manage how would you be a good leader.

I would say he is smart in making his ways in politics. He knows how to impress the head of Malaysia (PM) and influence him. He might be a leader as his mother claim but he doesn't qualified to be a leader in a multiracial malaysia. All his speeches and interviews proves that he is extremly racist. In a nutshell He is a rising troublemaker.

Let's lay-off slagging KJ's mum and focus on the arrogant, cocksure person that has expressed his intentions of being Prime-Minister one day. The mainstream newspapers reporting on post-election 2008 results had cited race & economic issues as cause of BN's losses. None of the mainstream press dare say that one of the reasons for BN's deteriorating image was due to Malaysian public over the last few years growing tired at seeing KJ (and his close-buddies in Umno) gallavanting about the country like they own it; what with their growing ARROGANCE and blatant exploitation of his Father-In-Law's position in the Govt for personal political/financial gains. Malaysians want humble, hardworking and honest politicians, and had made this known at the recent polls. I know for a fact that many young Malaysian professionals find KJ and his cronies a major turn-off. If Pak Lah wants to rejuvenate his career, kicking this profiteering son-in-law is a good first step.
But we all know that ain't going to happen, and maybe Pak Lah will learn a bitter lesson one day when he gets kicked out of Umno presidency due to his beloved son-in-law: who we can bet has stepped on the toes of many people within the Umno party itself.
