Bung’s “advice” does not go down well with most (video)

MAYBE his intentions were good, but it certainly did not go down well with most Malaysians.

A recent video of Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Moktar Radin urging the public to heed the movement control order (MCO) and stay at home, while lounging in his swimming pool was not well received by many.

Unlike Bung Moktar who lives in a huge mansion with a swimming pool, most Malaysians are finding it very difficult coping with the MCO.

Especially those living with huge families in low cost flats where up to eight people have to stay crammed in a single-room unit.

The situation is much worse for those with little children.

Bung had posted the video on his Twitter account yesterday where he could be seen wearing black swimming pants in a swimming pool, likely at his residence.

For many Malaysians Bung’s “advice” felt more like a thorn in our side as many of us do not have the means to sustain for two weeks and are mostly suffering.

Perhaps our so-called leaders should have a little more brains in future and be careful of when and where they say something.
