Umno leaders attend engagement of Najib’s son, Puad Zakarshi says ceremony ‘incomplete’ without ‘Bossku’
KUALA LUMPUR, April 30 — Several Umno leaders attended the engagement ceremony of Norashman Najib, the youngest son of convicted former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, here last night.
Umno supreme council member Datuk Puad Zarkashi who was there said on Facebook that the event felt “incomplete” without the presence of “Bossku” — a moniker used to refer to Najib.
“Ashman, who happened to be sitting next to me, remained calm and cheerful. Ashman is also excited because at 3pm he and his fiancee Nicola will visit Bossku in Kajang,” Puad posted, giving Norashman’s fiancee’s name as Nicola Mulyadi.
“Let’s pray that Ashman and Nicola’s wedding will be attended by Bossku.
“He will return to the struggle of the people. God willing,” Puad added, referring to Najib.

Najib is currently serving a 12-year jail sentence in Kajang prison after being found guilty of abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering in relation to RM42 million belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd, a former subsidiary of scandal-tainted 1MDB.
He still faces a slew of other charges related to the misappropriation of billions of dollars from the Malaysian sovereign investment fund.
