BAKRI, May 7 — Pakatan Harapan (PH) president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has today rapped Perak DAP chief Nga Kor Ming for a recent speech that went viral, which the latter has since apologised for.

Dr Wan Azizah said that the pact does not appreciate such harsh language being used against its chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“We don’t condone such acts. We shouldn’t say things like that and we are in this together.

“Tun Mahathir even made a video stating that he wants to correct his past mistakes. I think that is very noble,” she told the press here.

Nga, who is also the Teluk Intan parliamentary candidate, became the subject of controversy after a video posted on the Facebook page called “Gerak Perak” purportedly showed him speaking sarcastically at a ceramah about Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad being at death’s door.

He also suggested that the late Singapore prime minister Lee Kuan Yew was tired of playing mahjong alone in the afterlife, and wanted Dr Mahathir to join him.

When asked whether PH would take action against Nga, Dr Wan Azizah said she will leave that to its component party DAP.

Nga had since apologised for his blunt language and promised to take a softer approach in his future ceramah.
