Corruption had been cultivated decades ago under a different name and leadership. It won’t be right to turn the other cheek and fast forward to the current issue and put the entire blame on the current government.
With the current fiasco happening in the country one would think that the man who held the longest-serving position as the Prime Minister of Malaysia would’ve been the first to stand up and defend the country from any sort of attacks. Instead, his having a field day by ranting and claiming that Malaysia still owes it all to him.
After weeks of being silent, Mahathir returned with a vengeance with his stale opinions running the country down to the ground, by abusing his freedom of speech with daily doses of rants and slamming the government that he used to lead. One of recent was that Najib is currently undermining the democracy of the country.
Mind you, this is the same person who dismissed the Lord President and suspended the Supreme Court judges due to a complaint of noisy renovation.
Remember what happened when people wanted to bring Mahathir down? Major newspapers were forced to shut down and more than 100 people from the opposition and the same party was thrown into prison without trial. Startling how now it is okay to have a street demonstration to oust Najib Razak as the last resort.
In 2013, Mahathir insulted Ambiga by making a rude statement to have the federal constitution revoke Ambiga’s citizenship due to the Bersih, fast forward 2015 Mahathir is currently working hand in hand with people he has so openly despised.
Is this really the last resort? Or is there something darker and much more sinister that Mahathir is trying to hide?
