Tengku Zafrul : Futbol Y Rumba

was a massive hit two years ago in the Spanish speaking part of the world.  The song is from two of the biggest names in Latin pop ; Enrique Iglesias & Anuel AA.

Champagne and football and party (Woo)
And the reggaetón is booming
The party doesn't stop and we spend the fund
There's just one life and there isn't a second

It looks like,  Tengku Zafrul has had enough 

and will take nomore  being the favorite football of his cabinet colleagues. 

As I have written before,  the plan to kill off Digital Nasional Bhd,  has a lot to do with Ericsson winning the bid to supply,  deliver and manage the entire 5G  universe in  Malaysia..  READ : DNB: Ericsson's RM11b 5G bid is RM700m lower than nearest competitor 

Huawei, a secretive  Chinac based entity accused of Cyber Security,  Intellectual property and  human rights almost secured an indirect mandate to build the 5G network here in 2020 but the Government  READ :  Malaysia revokes an order awarding contracts for the 5Gtelecommunications spectrum to five companies, including two linked to Chinese tech giant Huawei

Huawei or perhaps it should be H  for  HARANGUE,  on  the back of the criticism rightfully,  wrongfully or even ignorantly  leveled at Huawei.

Who is is to be blamed  here?   Consider this. Huawei's founder, in the company's own words READ : Our founder, Ren Zhengfei, owns a 1.14% stake in the company. Huawei is owned by our employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP)

Opaque,  red flags all over ,  or merely misunderstood. Any which way you see it,  the bottomline is the same.   

Maxis,  Digi and Celcom have all signed up with Huawei for their 5G network,  but those plans have been put to waste with Tengku Zafrul' s  Digital Nasional Bhd, and it's chosen partner Ericsson

This has caused great anger ,  not so much from the telcos,  or  even Huawei but from a nexus  from a Northern state in  Malaysia, where the very powerful and the very rich reside.
