Datuk Zakaria Md Derus, 62, the former Port Klang Assemblyman who gained fame as the controversial builder of the illegal personal palatial mansion (photo) in Pandamaran, has died yesterday morning of a heart attack. Read yesterday's Malaysiakini report, here.
Read also my earlier blog about him: Rich Politician, Poor Politician, here.
I am not one to speak ill of the dead but the man has gone to meet his Maker where he may have to answer some very tough questions and I do not envy him. It also goes to show that you just cannot take it with you.
