SPLICED & EDITED LIKE ANWAR’S SEX VIDEO? NOW ZAHID SAYS HE HAS EVIDENCE IN THE FORM OF ‘RECORDINGS’ THAT IT WAS ‘A FORMER LEADER’ WHO WANTED TO TOPPLE NAJIB – BUT DR M ALREADY PUBLICLY SAID HE WANTED NAJIB OUSTED

JERLUN— Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today revealed that a former Umno leader was the real mastermind behind a plot to topple Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Ahmad Zahid said that he had enough evidence in the form of recordings that the former leader was the one who suggested to him that the Prime Minister be brought down through a vote-of-no-confidence in Parliament at the time.

“My conversation on this with the former leader was recorded and the tape is still with me. At the time, I was just into my 10th day as Deputy Prime Minister. Does it make sense that I would want to topple Najib when I was just appointed DPM,” he said when opening Jerlun Umno delegates conference at Sekolan Menengah Sains Kubang Pasu here today.

Also present was Jerlun Umno chief Datuk Abu Hassan Sharif.

Recently, former prime minister and former Umno president Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is now leading the opposition, had claimed that Ahmad Zahid had come to see him soon after he was appointed as DPM to seek his (Dr Mahathir’s) blessings to topple Najib. Dr Mahathir at the time was still with Umno.
