PETALING JAYA: A picture making the rounds on social media, alleging that defections in the Sabah state government was an “inside job” by PKR, has been dismissed by the party as fake.
According to PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil (pic), there were no private meetings between Inanam assemblyman Kenny Chua Teck Ho and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
He said there was only a general meeting between the state MPs, assemblymen and party leaders with the PKR president.
“It was organised and attended by Sabah PKR chairman Datuk Christina Liew herself. It is not a private meeting, and it wasn’t from two weeks ago as claimed.
“PKR disagrees with any form of treachery, what more a back-door effort to bring down the Sabah state government.
"That is why Chua was sacked.
“Don’t spread slander,” said Fahmi.
The picture in question was taken on July 3 and was posted by Anwar himself on Instagram.
Chua was sacked by PKR on Thursday (July 30) after it was alleged that he was among those supporting former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman in his effort to topple the Sabah government.
