Najib Razak Slams Remark Malays are Untrustworthy

Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad (left) is known to not mince his words. 

He can be blardy blunt and regally righteous in his views on everything and anything. And many people can sometimes be put off by him. 

Still, if that’s the truth, you just have to swallow it lah. 

Mahathir had commented on the achievements of the New Economic Policy, which he described as “minimal and unsatisfactory” – and pointing out that among the failings of the Malays are their unwillingness to work hard and having a lackadaisical attitude to their own responsibilities. 

“We accuse others. We accuse the government, accuse other races. When we fail, they are at fault. We are never wrong”, he said on Saturday. 

“I dare to say that we are lazy. We like to hand over our jobs to other people”, he added. 

Mahathir had proclaimed the Malays as being not trustworthy as they do not have a sense of responsibility when they are trusted with something. 

Of course, disgraced former prime minister Najib Razak was quick to slam Mahathir for citing Malays as untrustworthy. 

Najib (left) is right because we should not paint ALL Malays with the same brush. 

Just because Najib is a crook – does not make all Malays to be crooks! 

Anyway, Mahathir used the issue of non-repayment of National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN) student loans as an example of Malays being irresponsible. 

“Whatever excuses we give, the fact is we don’t pay our debts. To us, it’s a small matter. But to other races, it erodes their trust in us”, he maintained. 

And as he highlighted, PTPTN debtors owe RM36 billion, almost the same as the stolen 1MDB funds!

At the WSF Women's World Team Championship 2018 (September 11-16), Team Malaysia sets out to reclaim their status as the best Asian team. 

They had a good start in Dalian, China when they cruised to an easy 3-0 win over South Africa in their opening Group D tie on Tuesday.
