KOTA KINABALU: PKR supremo in Sabah Jeffrey Kitingan has all but lost trust and hope in PKR adviser Anwar Ibrahim.
This is the view of Jeffrey supporters since the issue against the 12 Sabah PKR leaders emerged publicly.
PKR suspended the 12 -- Daniel John Jambun, Awang Ahmad Sah Awang Sahari, Mozes Iking, Paul Kerangkas, Sylvester Balon, Innocent Makajil, Guandee Kohoi, Harry Manisit, Dr Nicholas Guntobon, Rubbin Guribah, Gonsubin Yosundang and Nasir Samie -- for initiating a PKR break-away party last year.
FMT contacted several of Jeffrey's key men and women last night, but none wanted to be quoted directly.
They said their boss, who returned here from Kuala Lumpur on Monday, is disappointed that Anwar did not respect a peace deal they had agreed upon last December.
"He is very upset with Anwar..." an aide to Jeffrey said.
"Jeffrey is saying like 'enough is enough'... But he is calm and cool. He also told us to remain calm...” said another aide via an SMS.
Jeffrey, when met on arrival at the Kota Kinabalu airport on Monday night, and later at the Tambunan Golf Clubhouse here (where he had supper with some of his closest supporters), did answer some questions, but they were all off the record.
He refused to talk about his encounter with Anwar and others in the PKR supreme council meeting on Sunday.
On the confusion over the suspension of the 12, Jeffrey said he respected the peace deal and would stick by it.
He added that he and many other PKR members had expected Anwar to respect it too, but the latter didn't for reasons best known to him.
