It was a good thing Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib’s wife Puan Sri Asbi Rohani Asnan, just voted because others did so. At least she is honest. She did not know what the heck went on, and not wanting to be left out in the cold all alone, joined the crowd, as we would say, sheep lead to slaughter. Only sheep, like Asbi Rohani can not know why Balkis was dissolved, but vote without being aware what it is for. She would make a good politician.
Ex-MB’s wife: I voted with the others for dissolution
SHAH ALAM: Selangor Umno liaison chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib’s wife Puan Sri Asbi Rohani Asnan told an inquiry that she did not know why the Wives of Selangor Assemblymen and MPs Welfare and Charity Organisation (Balkis) was dissolved but voted for the dissolution because everyone else at the meeting did so.
She also told the Selangor state government’s Special Select Committee on Competence, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) that it was agreed at the meeting that the association’s monies totalling RM9.9mil would be transferred to another organisation with a similar agenda.
(The money was eventually given to the Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti) after Balkis was dissolved.)
Asbi Rohani was Balkis president until 1997, while at the time of the dissolution former mentri besar Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo’s wife Datin Seri Zaharah Kechik was the president.
