Prior to his death, in an emotional outpouring, the first Prime Minister of the nation, Tunku Abdul Rahman, disclosed that if ever there was a man who could single handedly destroy Malaysia, that man would be Mahathir Mohammad.

Malaysians now acknowledge and believe that the Tunku’s prophecy was accurate and has been fulfilled by Mahathir as he has enriched himself, his family, his cronies and sycophants at the expense of the rakyat.

If the rakyat are ‘menderita’ (suffering) right now the cause and root of the problem or crisis is the doing and deeds of Mahathir while he was prime minister for 22 years during his first tenure and also during his second tenure.

By way of corruption, collusion, cronyism and nepotism, Mahathir became above the law and dispensed with checks and balances as he rode roughshod as a dictator and silenced dissent and clamped down on those who opposed him.

Though the Tunku has long departed, his words resonate even till today as Mahathir seeks to dictate terms and conditions in the country to consolidate and strengthen the corrupt elite who own and control the wealth of the nation.

While the common man languishes for having believed and trusted Mahathir, the lessons does not seem to have been learnt as he continues to use race and religion to divide and rule according to his whims and fancies.
