-- was the assurance by Sime Darby chairman Tun Musa Hitam when asked whether more heads would roll over the group's cost overruns in four projects in its energy and utilities division.
These projects are in Qatar and the Bakun hydro-electric dam.
On Thursday (May 13), Musa told a media conference that, as a result, the group would take a hit of almost RM1billion in its second half earnings from the losses.
Last night Musa met with some bloggers at the Sime Darby convention centre, and spoke candidly about the issue, explaining about the Bakun project and how the group landed with the Qatar projects; how everything that shouldn't happened, happened. And so on.
(In the news : Sime Darby's group chief executive officer Ahmad Zubir Murshid has been asked to go on paid leave until his contract ends in November.)
Responding further, he said he was not going to "chop" people's heads because "people want me to".
"I want to have basis. I am of the view that we cannot let things rot. We have to cure it. I assure you. We will be leaner and better after this."
He reiterated , that long-term structural problems that have been identified will be rectified.
There will be changes.
Musa said as the group CEO, Zubir had taken responsibility for what happened.
When a blogger, pressed further on the role and responsibility of Sime Darby's board of directors, focusing on him as chairman, a smiling and good-natured Musa responded: " You want me to resign?"
He said he was prepared to resign. But it (any demand for him to do so) has to come from the shareholders, and of course - as Sime Darby is a GLC - the Prime Minister.
Asked whether the group had found a candidate to succeed Zubir, Musa said the group would need time to look for a suitable candidate.
He quipped that if he had his way, he'd prefer a foreigner, but the decision was not his alone.

With Musa at the meeting with bloggers were acting group CEO (executive vice-president of the plantation division) Azhar Abdul Hamid and group CFO, Tong Poh Keow who offered details and further explanations to points raised.
The last time Musa met with bloggers was more than a year ago. Zubir was with him.
