Former Cabinet Minister Megat Junid Megat Ayub passed away after "subuh" today. He was 65.
He had been battling prostrate cancer for some two years.

Megat Junid was the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister between 1997 and 1999 and Deputy Home Affairs Minister for 11 years before that.

He was also Umno information chief.

He was also active in sports associations and headed the Malaysian contingent for the Jakarta South-East Asian Games in 1997.

He leaves behind two wives, Faizah Shuaib and Ziela Jalil, as well as five children -- three sons and two daughters.

My condolences to his family.



According to Bernama, Arwah was buried at the Bukit Kiara Muslim cemetery after Zuhr prayers.
Here's the Bernama story.

i remember many run-ins with the arwah when he was deputy minister. but after he retired, we could sit down at functions and just chat. he was quite open with reporters. if i'm not mistaken, he was in charge of the country's legal affairs (what we know as defective defacto law minister in the pak lah era) and was massively popular with the lawyers, also because of his openness.

megat was a great source of news for journalists.

my condolences to his family.

Happened to be at ss7 ,Kelana Jaya , Nurul Yaqin mesjid for zohor.Met with a horde of police personnel outside,some making ablution and some standing in line . The mesjid is packed to almost like Jumaat prayers.Obviuosly those who come to ziarah Arwah outnumbered the local residence.Among them are VIPs and UMNO stalwarts.
Right in front in the 1st saf was Tan Sri Khalil Yaacob.There was Dato Aziz Samsudin, Dato Mukhriz, Dato Nor Mohamed and KJ was also there with Dato Azeez always very close beside him. And there are many other familiar faces whom I could not name.
Nevertheless lets hope with the large crowd who made the 'Solat Jenazah' ..ALLAH will bestow Rahmat upon the Arwah...Amin..
