“Khidmat Hospital” project - the real motive
Dr Chong Eng Leong (pic left) was certainly right for questioning whether Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Hj Aman’s adamant decision and rush to convert the shabby Wisma Khidmat into a private hopital is really for the benefit of the people of Sabah at large, or for the privileged few.
I also fully concur with Dr Chong for saying that if the State government really cares for the people’s welfare like what it always claimed, it should perhaps get the Sabah Credit Corporation (SCC), a Government-linked Company (GLC) which owns the Wisma Khidmat, to provide loan to the Ministry of Health (MoH) to construct more government hospitals in Sabah.
Minister of Health,Datuk Liow Tiong Lai (pic below left),during his recent visit to Sabah to oversee the seriousness on the status of Queen Elizabeth Hospital,was also brief by Musa Aman (pic right)(who appears to portray himself as a medical expert)on the conversation of Wisma Khidmat into a private medical facility.The Health Minister had clearly indicated that the Federal Government has no interest in his plan,to convert the abandon Wisma Khidmat into a hospital.
Dr.Chong was therefore absolutely right for saying that questions are abound surrounding this private hospital project, in particular over its real motive. Many of whom I’ve spoken to, including those from the medical fraternity, over the issue in the last few weeks were skeptical and scornful of Musa's decision to rush to complete the project within one year.
A majority of them were of the opinion that the real motive behind the project is the RM100 million and probably more that would come once the project is implemented.
“Aiya bro! Project means money lah. Without project how to make money? And knowing Musa Aman well, he just wants to sapu whatever projects there are when he is still in power lah. It doesn’t matter whether it is a private hospital or a cemetery, as long as there’s money to make, he will sure sapu one. He is not known as the “super vacuum” for nothing lah, bro!” said a local contractor who undertakes many government projects.
He even suggested that I should probably do some research on a Sabah-based Architect, Melvin Kiandee who is said to be one of Musa’s proxies who is also the Architect behind the “Khidmat Hospital” project. Melvin who is a brother of the Deputy Parliament Speaker, Datuk Ronald Kiandee (pic left), is also said to be the Main Contractor for the Sabah UMNO Building. He is also believed to own another multi-million private hospital project at the Sutera Harbour which construction has been much delayed due to unknown reason.
However, it was not known whether Musa’s adamant decision to proceed with the “Khidmat Hospital” project has got anything to do with the now stalled private hospital project at Sutera Harbour.
The other popular notion was that Musa and his cronies failed to get anything out of the Sabah Medical Centre (SMC) acquisition by the Ministry of Health (MoH) as the deal was between the Ministry and SMC. Therefore, by hook or by crook, Musa and his cronies are determined to implement the "Khidmat Hospital" (pic right) project.
There was also this cheeky comment by one of the readers of this blog who quipped that Musa’s desperation to establish “Khidmat Hospital” was probably for his own use to treat his brain tumor, if the recent rumor about it was true.
But, whatever it is, Musa's claimed intention behind the project is unconvincing unless he could satisfactorily answer all the questions raised by Dr Chong in his latest statement.
And he (Musa) should stop making use of such dubious characters like PBS Information Chief cum Deputy Sabah State Speaker, Johnny Mositun aka Johnny Boy (pic left) and Datuk Clarence Bongkos Malakun, who is currently the IDS Chairman cum President of Council of Justices of Peace Sabah (Majaps), to insult the intelligence of Sabah people.
