GARDENING LEAVE: In an ingenious effort to restore his battered reputation, 1MDB’s only employee Arul Kanda Kandasamy, deftly avoided further ridicule today by deploying Homer Simpson’s infallible ‘it was like that when I got here’ logic.
“After his inability to answer the Finance Minister’s questions yesterday, I’m sure there will be a huge demand for Arul in the corporate world once his contract at 1MDB ends,” said post-election everything’s fine roadshow U-turn analyst, Abdullah bin Bakar,
“The word is Arul’s now on gardening leave, and who wouldn’t want a chief executive with his integrity and skillset? His phone must be ringing off the hook!”
It is understood part of ‘new Malaysia’ involves tackling the bills left behind by ‘old Malaysia.’
