Malaysia sepak takraw in disarray, national athletics coach has Covid-19, IRB moves to declare OCM's Nazifuddin a bankrupt
The Malaysian sepak takraw scene is in a mess. No I'm not talking about the performance of the team but the national body.
Terengganu is the latest to quit the Malaysia Sepak Takraw Association, as reported by Berita Harian.
The east coast state body said: "PSM juga gagal dalam mengurus tadbir di peringkat kebangsaan serta gagal memberi penjelasan sebenar mengenai situasi yang berlaku antara PSM dengan ASTAF dan ahli gabungannya."
It becomes the fifth state to distance itself from the national body after Kelantan, Johor, Selangor and Kedah.
For decades, the same faces are seen in the national body and at the regional level. One wonders what have they done for the sport.
Get well soon, Manshahar!
National athletics coach Mohd Manshahar Abdul Jalil and two of his family members have tested positive for Covid-19.
National news agency, Bernama reported:
Presiden Kesatuan Olahraga Malaysia (KOM), Datuk S M Muthu berkata, Mohd Manshahar bersama seorang anak lelakinya kini menjalani proses kuarantin di rumah selama 14 hari, selepas disahkan dijangkiti wabak itu pada Sabtu lalu.
"Saya berhubung menerusi WhatsApp dan beliau memberitahu keadaannya baik serta tidak menghadapi sebarang masalah, tahap jangkitannya juga rendah. Kita harap dan doakan beliau segera sembuh."
I'm glad Muthu had time for Bernama and didn't hang up. I hope Manshahar, his wife their son get well soon.
IRB moves to declare OCM's Nazifuddin a bankrupt
Datuk Nazifuddin Najib has been served with a bankruptcy notice following his failure to pay RM37. 6 million in taxes he owes the Inland Revenue Board (IRB), reported New Straits Times.
According to the bankruptcy notice sighted by the New Straits Times, Nazifuddin now has to pay RM37.6 million with interest at five percent a year between July 6, 2020 and Feb 4, 2021, amounting to RM1.1 million from the date of the order of a summary judgement as well as costs of RM10,000.
This brings the accumulated sum to RM38.7 million.
Before anyone gets excited, Nazifuddin is still the Olympic Council of Malaysia secretary-general and declaring one a bankrupt is a lengthy process.
