Ooh, pandai nya Zaid. Join parti nyamuk di Kelantan, lepas tu terus jadi presiden!
He became AKIM president without so much as a flutter... at its annual general meeting at Tropicana Golf and Country Club (in Zaid's neighbourhood) today.
Ordinarily, the media would give the event a pass, you know, AKIM is not on people's radar.
But since everyone had got to know that Zaid had become a member and was going to be its president, it's something that you've gotta see.
Zaid easily took over from incumbent Zakaria Salleh who did not contest the seat.
How Zaid got Zakaria to move aside, well, I ain't telling. Your guess is as good as mine. And Zakaria is a very happy man.
But, I hear, there's a leadership problem there between Zakaria and Hanafi Mamat who still claims to have legitimate right over the party's presidency.
Now, it's Zaid's problem. But I hear Zaid's got it all under control. He thinks Hanafi has no case at all.
Still, I wish Zaid -- good luck!
