Bung Moktar weds actress Zizie

(Bernama) – A close friend of Kinabatangan Member of Parliament Bung Moktar Radin confirmed the rumour that he had married actress Zizie Ezette.

“It’s settled. I pray that he will be happy. A friend’s happiness is ours too,” said Sri Gading MP Mohamad Aziz, adding that he had also advised Bung Moktar to not keep the marriage a secret anymore.

The couple’s wedding reception was said to be held at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday night.

Bung Moktar, who is the Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club deputy chairman, has repeatedly denied he was marrying the actress.

However, contacted by reporters yesterday, he declined to confirm the marriage.

“This is not the best time. I have to consider the feelings of many people and I don’t want to hurt anyone,” he said.
Bung Moktar, 50, is married and has four children.

Zizie, 31, a popular actress in a number of television dramas, won the best aspiring actress award at the Malaysian Film Festival 2003.

Asked for his reason in not attending yesterday’s Parliament sitting, Bung Moktar said he was in Kinabatangan, Sabah.

“I have obtained permission from the chief (Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz),” he added.
