The Man Who Said F*** Off to Mahafiraun, the Late Ani Arope

Then prime minister Mahafiraun was the man who “engineered” the rise of IPPs.

“There was no negotiation; absolutely none. Instead of talking directly with the IPPs, TNB was sitting down with the EPU. And we were harassed, humiliated and talked down every time we went there.

“After that, my team was disappointed. The EPU just gave us the terms and asked us to agree. I said no way I would,” Ani reveals in his recently released memoirs.

Ani, who was under a lot of pressure to sign the agreements, felt the deal was morally wrong and lopsided.

“If it is legal and not fair, I will not do it. If it is fair and illegal, I still won’t do it. It has to be legal and fair,” he says.

Sharp hike in power tariffs

According to Ani, TNB at that point was producing electricity at 8 sen a unit (kWh) and this could be delivered at 17 sen per unit.

However, the IPPs were producing electricity at 23 sen per unit, therefore TNB would need to charge consumers no less than 30 sen per unit.

  1. Mahathir, ko tanggunglah dosa kpd rakyat yg berjuta tu. tak lama lg ko ikut allahyarham tp ko ikut jln lain. ingatlah! kesengsaraan rakyat bersama2 ko disana nanti.

  2. We remember you Tan Sri Ani who gave us the scroll on our graduation day. You did the right thing by objecting mahathir agenda on IPP policy. May Allah bless your soul. As for Mahathir, damage was already done and you'll shoulder the sin for the rest of your life. The agreement were absolutely unfair, though legal by force.
