Sheih in Kelantan
Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz, otherwise known as blogger Sheih Kickdefella has joined the Kelantan government as corporate communications officer.
Sheih has resigned as lecturer in broadcasting and filming from a local university.
In his 12 years in the film and media industry, Sheih has worked as director, producer and script writer for films and television.
Kelantan is Parti Islam (Pas)-ruled.
As we undersand it, Sheih's work will be encompassing of the state government's publicity activities, which are, of course, Pas activities.
Pas is certainly having a broad outlook of things. Must be the "new " Pas today.
When you want to reach out, you'll just have to think out of the box! And get serious!
I'd say that having a blogger on board is THE thing to do. I know, some would say, is a brave thing to do.
We will certainly be looking out for Sheih's handiwork in the next general election.
It is interesting to note that Sheih is NOT a Pas member. He is in fact a card-carrying Umno member. He was a two-term Youth leader for Umno Sri Hartamas and now sits on its exco.
Well, There you are. Certainly a coup for Pas.
