Tales of two PMs: Building legacy, destroying legacy

Letter to editor

IT’S a sheer waste that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad built his legacy for 22 years and 22 months but only to see it destroyed towards the tail-end of his life.

While his nemesis Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been building his own legacy as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia (PMX), Dr Mahathir’s own legacy is now in tatters largely due to his own doings.

Rather than being respected as a statesman, the former twice premier has hurled insults on the Malay rulers and pitted one race against another.

He should realise that he is no longer in power like before and he too can be subject to sedition charges like any other ordinary citizens. What he did recently cannot be easily excused.

If he had been wiser for his age, the now chief advocate of Proklamasi Melayu should have lived a quiet life. He should at least take the cue from former inspector-general of police (IGP) Tan Sri Rahim Noor who despite being instrumental in bashing up Anwar, is spared the rod.
