Who is Zairil?

Who is Zairil?

Several blogs has sparked the issue of Zairil Khir Johari’s real identity.

Many have known that he is a Political Secretary to the Penang Chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng.

Zairil was recently declared to have won a CEC seat in what was claim as the mistake in vote counting at the earlier round that saw him fail to reach the threshold to get a seat in the highest decision making body.

He is the sole Malay candidate ‘elected’ to sit in the CEC.

Many have been questioning why the DAP especially Guan Eng, is so obsessed in projecting Zairil. But Awang has no answer for that.

The damning question is, who is this Zairil? There are many versions of explanation over his backgrounds.

There are those who said that he is the biological son of the late Tan Sri Khir Johari. There are those who said that he is a step-son, adopted son and so on.

It is suggested that Zairil call for a press conference to explain the issue.

Zairil should be given the opportunity to explain the puzzle and get clean.

This is to avoid the media from committing any mistake with regard to his name because some had even written his name as Zairil Khir Johari bin Abdullah.
