“Is M’sia lacking midwives?”: Netizens on Najib’s daughter for giving birth in S’pore

(Focus Malaysia) – In most households, the arrival of a new family member is always welcomed by friends and family with greetings of joy and wellbeing.

However, when former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak daughter gave birth to a baby, netizens took to social media to criticise him and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

The reason being his daughter’s decision to give birth in a hospital in Singapore instead of a local establishment.

“The expertise of Malaysian midwives is frowned upon due to their 90% mortality rate. So that is why his daughter will deliver her baby in a Singaporean hospital.

They have more confidence in the republic’s doctors then ours. It is a playground for the rich,” user Adlyshaz scoffed in a jest.

User Azlan Selamat added: “There must be hundreds of good hospitals in Malaysia. Why go to Singapore?”

Yesterday, Rosmah, who is facing graft charges in court, was allowed by the High Court to attend to her daughter Nooryana Najwa Najib in Singapore for childbirth.

High Court judge Datuk Mohamed Zaini Mazlan allowed her application to temporarily use her international passport.

Zaini, in his ruling, said the accused needs to return the document back to the court before Dec 6.

On that note, user Rafeet Capero said that with the “court cluster” receiving more privileges, he opined it would not be long before they get off the hook.

“With more of the court cluster people being treated with kids’ gloves, I won’t be surprised if they get released soon.”

However, user Rafael Cecirro said benefit of the doubt must be given to Najib’s daughter, as Nooryana might be a resident in the city state.
