Take care, we still need you to fight for us, Dr M told

The Star Malaysia - - Nation -

PETAL­ING JAYA: He’s 93 years old and is up and about al­most 24/7. And, it isn’t just his wife who is con­cerned about his well-be­ing.

“Please take care Tun. You’re the pil­lar of Malaysia now. Stay healthy and we will be wait­ing pa­tiently. We know Rome is not built in a day,” Face­book user Jean Sien wrote.

The post­ing was in ref­er­ence to Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad, who has been hav­ing hec­tic sched­ules dur­ing the weeks lead­ing up to GE14. And, even more so af­ter he was sworn in as Prime Min­is­ter last week.

His wife Tun Dr Siti Has­mah Ali re­vealed via the Ke­lab Che Det Face­book page how Dr Ma­hathir went through about 200 doc­u­ments one night alone un­til about 5am and was back in of­fice 7am.

“We know you hold the rakyat (Malaysians) close to your heart but please take care of your­self be­cause we still need you to fight for us,” said an­other Face­book post­ing by Weng Kong Chow.

Sasien­theran Vik­neswaran wrote: “You won our hearts Tun. Please do take care of your health, I plead.”

Yet an­other Face­book user Azwan Ai­man said he was wor­ried that Dr Ma­hathir might not be get­ting enough sleep.

“I am wor­ried to see Tun Dr Ma­hathir not get­ting enough rest and sleep. I hope he will be healthy al­ways,” he wrote.

As for Irene Low, she wrote of her sup­port for both the Prime Min­is­ter and his wife.

“We are all very wor­ried about his health too. We could only pray for his well-be­ing. God bless both of you,” said Low.
