Mahathir – get out, you’ve failed the rakyat

KTemoc Konsiders

So, the granddaughter of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad produces a film about her long-in-the-tooth grandfather, and mixes it up with the futile struggle of hopeful Malaysians in this long-suffering country.

While her intentions are to be lauded, the ‘M’ in the story has now come to stand for the manipulation and mischief-making the old man is once again known for.

The appointments of his Bersatu gofers like the ‘black shoe’ Education Minister Maszlee Malik, the ‘dinner host’ Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, and the ‘yet to stir’ Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, to wreck the hopes and aspirations of Pakatan Harapan voters are once again brought into sharp focus.

So what does ‘M’ mean to you? It means more misery under Mahathir as he continues to manipulate Malaysians with his khat, the Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik, and other ‘toxic’ wastes. His exit in every sense will not be too soon.
