KOTA BARU - Umno information chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa who had chest pain was probably overcome by fatigue, his wife Puan Sri Rosniah Abdul Rahman said.

“He is okay and is resting now,” she said when contacted yesterday.

Asked whether he had any heart-related ailments, she said, “no”.

Annuar was warded at the Coronary Care Unit of Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia in Kubang Kerian after complaining of chest pain, nausea, and dizziness on Saturday morning.

Annuar, 61, had been keeping a punishing schedule in recent weeks, especially in the run up to the Football Association of Malaysia election. However, he pulled out of the FAM presidential election at the eleventh hour. Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim won the post uncontested last Saturday.

Annuar was busy making early preparations for the next general election and was probably under stress following an investigation into an alleged RM700,000 sponsorship in favour of Kelantan Football Association (KFA).

Annuar was suspended as Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) chairman on Jan 31 pending internal investigations into alleged coercion of Universiti Kuala Lumpur and Pelaburan Mara Bhd into sponsoring KFA.
