KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's self-styled Bomoh King of the World plans to contest in the upcoming general election, the Harian Metro tabloid reported on Monday (April 16). He conducted two rituals at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport to supposedly locate the missing flight, to no avail. A viral video showed him and three assistants ankle-deep in water with two coconuts, a pair of sticks used as binoculars, five bamboo cannons, a carpet, and a bowl of seawater. The plan to contest the elections won't be the first time that Ibrahim had dipped his toes into politics. In April 2013, before the May 5 polling day, a video showed him predicting that the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition would lose to the opposition alliance Pakatan Rakyat.
