Raja Petra Kamarudin mentions Mumtaz Jaafar as being Saiful Bukhari’s “God Mother” in two of his No Holds Barred posts.
The first was The Malay Unity Sodomy Conspiracy posted on July 26th, 2008 where he wrote the following.
Actually, Saiful hardly knows his father. His father abandoned his mother soon after he was born and the mother remarried. When his mother died, his stepfather also disappeared and Saiful was subsequently brought up by his uncle (or was it his auntie?). And one important aspect in this whole episode is that Saiful’s ‘God Mother’ is Mumtaz Jaafar — who is Rosmah Mansor’s nominee and ‘bag lady’ in all their clandestine business deals.
And RPK mentions Mumtaz Jaafar again today in his Killing Two Birds with One Stone No Holds Barred post, rather cleverly putting forward possible questions (with regard to her connection to the Deputy Prime Minister’s wife) that might be raised in court should Anwar be formally charged.
During the course of Anwar’s impending trial, Malaysians will be told of the link Saiful has with Mumtaz Jaafar. Malaysians will also be told who Mumtaz Jaafar is and what her ‘special’ links with Rosmah are. Further to that, Malaysians will be told about the relationship between Najib’s Special Officer, Khairul Anas, and Saiful — and the less than manly reputation these two buggers had while still in school. Yes, the excitement and kinky sex that is going to spill over from this trial will cause Astro to lose a lot of business.
So who is this Mumtaz Jaafar? I only know of one possibility and that is the former sprint queen of Malaysia.
Datuk Mumtaz Jaafar
Status : Part-time Coach
Race : Malay
Date of Birth : 30/6/62
Job : Sports Development Officer
Age : 46 (current)
Sex : Female
Achievements : Gold – 1981 SEA Games in Manila (100m)
Woman Athlete for 1981 & Selangor Sportswoman for 1981.
Malaysia’s top sprinter Watson Nyambek will be gunning for his first sprint gold medal in the SEA Games at his own turf. But unlike many other sprinters or even male athletes who train under another male coach, the “Flying Dayak” is being coached byMumtaz Jaafar, the former sprint queen in the region.
Born on Jan 30, 1962 in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan, Mumtaz rose to become one of the top women athletes ever produced by the country. At one time, she jointly held the national 100m record of 11.9 second with another former great, Marina Chin.
Her biggest achievement was winning the 100m gold medal in the 1981 SEA Games in Manila. She was named the Woman Athlete of the Year for 1981 and Selangor Sportswoman for 1981.
But in 1982 she had a despair outing in the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi.
Her disappointment continued a year later when she failed to defend her 100m sprint gold in the SEA Games in Singapore. In the same year, she announced her temporary retirement from athletics due to thigh injury and subsequently to have a baby. She got married to Dom Amy Hussein in April, 1982.
But her love for sports remained and she made a comeback in November, 1984. Mumtaz went to West Germany for a two month training stint in July, 1985.
Despite her courage and overseas stint, Mumtaz failed to make a strong comeback in the 1985 SEA Games in Bangkok but reigned supremacy on the local front.
She retired in April, 1986 after eight years of competition.
Off the track, Mumtaz who is employed by the Selangor Sports Council, remained active and was appointed as coach to Watson in November, 1997.
In July, 1999, she was retained as vice-president of the Malaysian Amateur Athletic Union (MAAU) and was the Woman Sub-committee chairwoman of MAAU.
The mother of four, who is also active in politics, lost her MAAU vice-presidency post in the election last year (not sure what year it was, because I got the bio data from this link and no one has bothered to update it).
Could it be THE Mumtaz Jaafar, the former sprint queen whom RPK says is Saiful Bukhari’s “God Mother” and a close Rosmah Mansor (bag lady) associate?
Gee, I dunno. Check out the photo below and you decide. Pay special attention to ladies marked as “MJ” and “RM” Photo link here.
Meanwhile, check out this MalaysiaKini link where Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan has claimed that he accompanied PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim to three overseas trip this year alone.
