Covid-19 cases spike: Muhyiddin failed to show leadership

Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin‘s latest speech on 6 October failed to show even an ounce of leadership. A leadership, that is sorely needed in this critical moment for our nation.

Liew Chin Tong, DAP Senator in the Dewan Negara iterated that the rapid increase in Covid-19 cases require solutions, not awkward inappropriate humour.

“And yet the PM saw fit to joke about ‘abah’s rotan’; when he in fact should have been cracking the whip on VIPs like Minister Khairuddin Aman Razali who failed to adhere to SOPs.”

For the record, Khairuddin was reported to have failed to follow mandatory 14 days quarantine ruling after coming back from a trip overseas to Turkey.

According to Chin Tong, Muhyiddin’s speech also courted the rakyat’s fury as during the same day, a one-year-old baby was reported to be the latest victim to the pandemic in our country.

“What is sorely lacking from the PM’s address is an apology. We are not here to find fault, but an apology for launching the coup would at least soothe public sentiments, aside from an apology for his ministers who flaunted SOPs.”

In his televised speech from his home, Muhyiddin conceded that the increase in Covid-19 cases was due to the recently held Sabah State Election.

In case you missed it, the 16th Sabah State Election was held because there was an attempt at a coup from the Minister of Home Affairs, Hamzah Zainuddin along with former Sabah Chief Minsiter, Musa Aman.
