Mahathir Mohamad Mobbed at Dataran Merdeka

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute |

Wild scenes in Malaysia last night when Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his wife Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali made a surprise visit to Dataran Merdeka, where some 15,000 people had gathered as part of the the Bersih 4.0 protest against corruption in the Malaysian government.

As the couple tried to make their way back to their vehicle organisers had extreme difficulty in keeping a path open through Bersih 4.0 participants and the media. None of it though seemed to phase the 90-year-old former prime minister, or his 89-year-old wife of 59 years.
