Now Malaysians are wondering what is there to resign from on April 8 since by law, she would automatically no longer be able to continue being a minister once her senatorship ends anyway?
'I want to do the right thing," she was quoted by the Star to have said.
Many Malaysians had thought that the right honourable thing she should have done was to have resigned when first the scandal emerged and not to have stood defiant and insistent that she had nothing to do with the scandal since it was her family that was involved in running the National Feedlot Project to develop a bovine industry for Malaysia.
The whole sordid affair is so sordid that I have no stomach to rehash the tales and would like simply to refer readers to the Cow Gate Scandal Time-Line instead to get an idea what all the ho-ha is about.
Note: The husband of Datuk Shahrizat has now been charged with committing criminal breach of trust.
