Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak who’s call to those who are not proud of Malaysia to leave the country drew massive flack from netizens, specially on Twitter, right after an Australian newspaper revealed juicy details of a corruption scandal said to involve people close the Malaysian leader.
The netizens did not hold bars, openly attacking the Malaysian official with banters, cynicism and calls for him to return stolen ‘monies’ to the people.
Just days after an Australian newspaper, the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) – read article here on TISG – revealed how a former Mara Inc chairman planned the entire operations of the sale of a Melbourne property at a marked-up value to the Malaysian fund, Najib’s comment was strewn with the now all too familiar backlash and rude comments.
The paper said some AUD18.3 million of Malaysian taxpayers money were distributed among conspirators after the property a 280-room city apartment building, called the UniLodge, which mostly houses overseas students on Swanston Street, near Melbourne University became the centre of the scandal in Australia.
Malaysians asked Najib to leave the country instead, adding that they are not proud of Malaysia with his leadership which is rigged with unending scandals.
At the time of writing, the twitter thread started by Fahmi Fadzil @fahmi_fadzil received more than 5000 retweets and 2980 likes. It also got 50 comments, some as juicy as it gets.
Some of the comments are rude, but some are seriously hilarious. This one from @moneyads4u simple asked: “knape BN takut dengan orang tua macam Tun hah… opps depa tak gentelman keh keh keh”. translated from Malay, it is asking “why does the BN (Barisan Nasional which is the ruling coalition in Malaysia) is afraid of an old man like Tun (referring to Mahathir Mohamad former PM of Malaysia who is now the main opposition leader). It continues saying: “He is not a gentleman,” in reference to Najib.
And AKMAR FARWIZ @farwiz79 who said “Aiya.. Don’t asked him to leave without serving his terms in prison.”
