Mahathir’s legacy in tatters

by | Aug 14, 2023 | NATIONAL, NEWS, Opinions | 0 comments


Former Malaysian prime minister, Mahathir Mohammad, now finds that his legacy is in tatters as a growing number of Malaysians are placing the blame squarely on his shoulders for the nation’s problems.

Most Malaysians feel that Mahathir should not have overstayed his welcome and should have left politics while the going was good but his defiance at wanting to cling on to power has proved to be his own undoing.

In the process, whatever good or gains that he made for the people have become negated and Malaysians now think of him more as a burden than an asset to them and many feel strongly that he has only served for self gain.

While in power, he enriched himself, his family, cronies and sycophants that Malaysians want to see only the back of him and they want him to stop thinking of himself as indispensable as there are now many leaders who have proven themselves.

Some critics contend that Mahathir is actually working hard to save his legacy and keep it intact but what he has done so far goes to show that he has not changed his ways and resorts to evil and selfish schemes in a lust and hunger for power.

It is high time for Malaysians to show him the exit door and to say that they had enough of his antics and ploys which were merely selfish, self seeking and self serving and did not profit or gain the rakyat in any way.
