Ibrahim Mat Zin, the self-styled Raja Bomoh (Kelapa) who shot to infamy last year with his theatrics in KLIA following the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, has come out today saying the discovery of plane wreckage in the Indian Ocean’s Reunion Island has vindicated his prophecies.
In a video posted to Suara.TV‘s YouTube account yesterday, Ibrahim lashed out at detractors from around the world and within Malaysia who had ridiculed him and his decidedly “unorthodox” methods of tracking down the MAS aircraft which vanished from radar screens in the early hours of March 8, 2014.
Claiming that his mystical methods had accurately predicted that Flight MH370 would crash near an island (somewhere), Ibrahim exulted in being vindicated after having had his name dragged through the mud after all these months.
He also called on his naysayers, including officials from Malaysia’s various state religious agencies, to have a care in the future before putting down someone of his rare and unique talents.
This guy, we tell you.
And why did he have to use coconuts?
