KUALA LUMPUR — May 28, 2020: The situation surrounding the dismissal of five senior members of Pribumi Bersatu is slowly but surely turning into a circus, with the man who claims to be still its secretary-general removing the man appointed as executive secretary.
According to Datuk Marzuki Yahya, who insists he is till the party’s secretary-general, executive secretary Suhaimi Yahya, the man who issued the dismissal letters to the five, has himself been sacked.
Those who disagree with Marzuki’s decision refer to his removal by party president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to be replaced by Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin.
Marzuki’s letter which was circulated via WhatsApp said Suhami was sacked because he had gone against party ethics and the constitution by issuing the termination letters without referring to Marzuki.
It is Marzuki’s contention that Suhaimi was removed in line with Clauses 10 and 16.6 of the Pribumi Bersatu constitution.
Letters from Suhaimi were sent earlier today to inform Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, Dr. Maszlee Malik and Amiruddin Hamzah that they had been sacked from the party, a decision the five are rejecting and disputing.
