We, especially the youth, joined KITA for its fearless stand against authoritarianism, and I believe this is the same reason for those who left PKR for KITA. It is a party that promotes grass root democracy, where decisions are made from the bottoms – up.In a democratic organization like KITA, dissents must be heard, and be brought to attention. It must be discussed and debated, not being shut. No leader is infallible. Not Najib, not Anwar, and not Zaid.
We in KITA believe in building criticism, and we strongly advocate the freedom of speech. I am very sure Zaid Ibrahim has no problem swallowing this medicine with a pinch of salt. I would like to remind Zaid Ibrahim, that he might have started KITA, but we gave spirit to it. He does not own KITA, and KITA is not Zaid Ibrahim. KITA was built upon the same spirit which Zaid walked out with from PKR, a smack on their face and a fine reminder for us.
When the old gets senile (nyanyuk or nyanyu, whichever floats your boat), it is only morally right for the young to take the lead. KITA was build upon the principles of social justice, and we take it to be a sacred value. KITA aims to be the number one opposition party in Malaysia. We will stick to that goal, and hence it is my obligation to strongly oppose Zaid Ibrahim’s recent actions which was a clear violation of the party principle. If at all, he is the one that should be fired for acting against party principles.
I call upon young Malaysian to lend me your support, lets show these old hard headed politicians how things should be done the right way. We shall start with Zaid. I am urging for an EGM to be held, and Zaid Ibrahim to step down as Party chief as he no longer enjoys our confidence. We are very proud of Zaid and we respect him very much for the same qualities that Dr Mahathir used to charm us with, fearless outspokenness, but when the old has got to go, it has to go. Zaid should step down with style like Pak Lah.
To all the young spirits in KITA, gear up people we are taking the lead. We have a nation to build, lend me your support and we shall see our party through these trying times. Lets form the best opposition Malaysia has ever seen, and it seems pretty obvious to me that, apart from opposing the UMNO regime, we might just be opposing Anwar Ibrahim and his cartel next. We can’t expect contractor-minded politicians whom are backed by big fat companies to be credible opposition, they would be too busy eating, playing, and drinking. It is our future, let’s take charge.
