Mission accomplished: His yardstick in life and work has always revolved around national interest. Abu Zahar is seen here talking about the wig his predecessors in the Dewan Negara had to put on in the early years. Inset: A young Abu Zahar (second from right) was assigned as the chief security officer to Queen Elizabeth when she visited Malaysia in 1972.

Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang who concludes his journey as Dewan Negara president tomorrow is not a news-maker like his Dewan Rakyat counterpart, but he owns something that not many politicians have these days and that is integrity and a clean image.
