Are Johari Ghani and Syed Mokhtar just friends?

Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani has always been a grapevine favourite: He was second finance minister (2016-2018). He is still an Umno baron. And he is making headway in Corporate Malaysia. The latest story comes by way of The Edge in its Dec 16-22 issue. Here, the business weekly asked Johari to clarify so-called “market talk” speculating he was a substantial shareholder of Tradewinds Corporation Bhd and a proxy for Umno’s shares in Media Prima Holdings Bhd.
