Umno needs to reinvent

Umno must decide which road to take for it to remainthe backbone of the Barisan Nasional. It cannot be allthings to all Malays.

DATUK Shahrir Samad has always been known as a politician who speaks his mind, and who has been punished for doing so. I can’t agree with him more when he said on Monday that Umno members are no longer interested “in championing the cause of the party and country, but their own interest.”
