PETALING JAYA: Controversial Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusoff has been working in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for the past six months, says a source.

The source told FMT that Kamarul, a political analyst, worked as a special officer to Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, advising him on policy issues.

The matter came to light after the PMO uploaded a poster today of an event that Kamarul was going to attend. In the poster, the lecturer’s designation was given as “special officer to the prime minister”.

FMT has reached out to the PMO for comment.

Last year, opposition leader Anwar Ibahim urged UUM to launch an investigation into Kamarul for allegedly stoking religious tensions in comments made about DAP MP Steven Sim.

This was related to Sim’s assistance to a Malay youth who was facing some tough times and it was “made an issue” by the academic.

YOURSAY | PM’s not-so-secret special officer

Vijay47: Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin Abdul Rahman, the special officer at the Prime Minister’s Office Kamarul Zaman Yusoff, and the Internationalising Bahasa Malaysia Symposium – three individuals and an irrelevant event that reflect the lost direction this unfortunate country is embarking upon.

The rest of the world is busy exploring fresh options and opportunities in a rapidly changing environment, and Malaysia is engaged in reconfirming its kampung mentality and acute insecurity.

After the famous Malay Dignity Congress, who is the Einstein who decided that Bahasa Malaysia is worthy of becoming an international language?

It is used by a handful of people and hardly encountered in Singapore, Beijing, New Delhi, London, Moscow, Cairo, or even Kabul and some clowns want to turn it international? Even the Chinese do not have crazy ideas of making Mandarin a language the sun never sets upon.

Yes, Ismail Sabri, you will make it to the history books. But for many unintended reasons.

Next, we come to Malaysian pillars of leadership in mediocrity, Tajuddin and Kamarul Zaman. Is this the best Ismail Sabri could dredge up to fulfil some positions?

Considering the standards they come equipped with, one would have expected the government to instead take firm measures to hide these two from public view, lest the world tars all Malaysians with the same brush.

Appointing Tajuddin as our ambassador to Indonesia may even be seen as an attempt to further insult our long-suffering neighbours. The less said about Kamarul Zaman, the University Utara Malaysia professor, the better.

Yeah, sure, when I grow up, I want to be Tajuddin or Kamarul Zaman or Ismail Sabri.
