But since their parting of ways following the Asian financial crisis of the late 1980s, Anwar has been the the subject of one sex allegation after another.
First, following their parting of ways, the Mahathir administration had Anwar charged for allegedly sodomising his wife's driver.
Thus began the unsavoury spectacle of a mattress allegedly stained with Anwar's semen being brought in and out of the court daily, in a trial few believed in.
Even the alleged sodomy victim told the court that Anwar did not sodomise him or he wasn't certain on which occasions.The prosecution had to eventually amend the charge to one of abuse of power.
Then just before the Sarawak state election last year, a video allegedly showing Anwar caught having a roam with an unknown woman conveniently surfaced. The cloak and dagger manner the video was brought to the public's attention only aroused suspicion and made Malaysians more skeptical.
The whole affair turned out be a fiasco and the trio who revealed the video were eventually charged for a minor offence and got off with a mere slap on their wrists.
But that was not the end of the matter as far as Anwar was concerned. Anwar was eventually slapped with another sodomy charge by the Najib administration ala the Mahathir era.
This time the charge was one of sodomising his one-time aide, a strapping six-footer. Anwar was recently acquitted by the court of the charge but the prosecution has appealed and the case is pending.
Now it seems that a one-time friend of Anwar, whom Anwar is suing for defamation, has revealed that he has a secret video of Anwar that he will reveal in court later.
What this "secret video" is, nobody knows yet. We Malaysians just hope that it won't turn out to be yet another alleged sex video of Anwar.
We are just fed up of all this allegation of Anwar's sex peccadilloes.
I really pity Anwar, but I pity his enemies more.
