Datuk Seri Tengku Sarifuddin Tengku Ahmad said in recent months, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been making “embarrassing” about-turns on many issues he once insisted were correct. — Picture by Yusof Mat IsaHailed as an “Asian tiger” in his prime, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should now do himself and the country a favour by embracing retirement quietly in his old age, the press secretary to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today.

Datuk Seri Tengku Sarifuddin Tengku Ahmad chided the former leader for running down his own country for personal gain in his latest blog post when the latter wrongly claimed Malaysia to be among the top 10 most corrupt countries in the world.

“In fact, in Transparency International’s latest list, Malaysia is the 55th LEAST corrupt country in the world,” Tengku Sarifuddin pointed out in a statement.

“So Mahathir is either lying, or he can no longer understand what is fact and what is fabricated,” he added.

Tengku Sarifuddin noted that this was not the first time Dr Mahathir had been caught making unfounded statements.

He pointed out that in recent months, Dr Mahathir has been making “embarrassing” about-turns on many issues he once insisted were correct, to the point that Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar of Johor was moved to suggest the 91-year-old was senile.

Tengku Sarifuddin cited Dr Mahathir’s close association with federal Opposition leaders like DAP’s Lim Kit Siang and PKR’s Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to bring down the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition he once led as examples of such U-turns.

“The reality is that Malaysians cannot believe anything U-turn Mahathir says anymore. His words have become embarrassing for all to hear.

“The old tiger would serve himself and his nation better by retiring quietly,” he added.

  4. The aide to the PM and aide to Rosmah Mansor are now official spokesmen for Umno Baru controlled BN government? So the rest of Umno Baru controlled lawmakers are deaf, dumb and blind?

  6. In reality and on the contrary to what the crooks and thieves in Umno Baru wanted us to believe, Dr Mahathir is now a repented leader who is sincere and committed to reversing the harms he had caused and for not getting rids of greedy and corrupted leaders within Umno Baru during his reign. His active participation in PPBM and Pakatan Harapan is to ensure Najib is accountable for the biggest fraud and financial scandals in Malaysia ‘s history and a change in government will lay the foundation for a systemic reforms of our nation and a better Malaysia for all races.
