WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THE COUNTRY WAS BEING ROBBED ANWAR?

Press statement by Kua Kia Soong, SUARAM Adviser 28 October 2019

The ‘PM-indeterminate’ Anwar Ibrahim seems to have picked the wrong example to try to be on the right side of the ever-determined Prime Minister.

MAKE THE FIRST MOVE KAK WAN!

Press statement by Kua Kia Soong, SUARAM Adviser 16 June 2019

Given the way Dr Mahathir is playing games over the exact moment when Anwar is to take over the Prime Ministership, I would call upon Kak Wan to make a strategic chess move by resigning her post of Deputy PM as soon as possible since she has already said she would do so if her husband becomes PM and she does not condone nepotism in her party.
