Penang, May 7 – Former Gerakan president Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon derided DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang and his son who is the party’s secretary-general Lim Guan Eng for slapping their own face by harping on the “Malay tsunami” which seemed to be just a “Malay joke.”
Koh Tsu Koon is also former Penang chief minister, he said this on a video with the title “Koh Tsu Koon TALK 07: Malay Tsunami (2)” posted on his personal Facebook “Dr Koh Tsu Koon” this morning.
“Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng have been preaching incessantly that there will be Malay tsunami; they have been trying to convince voters that the tsunami is here, there will be a change of government, but based on what Lim Kit Siang has said I am sure there will be no Malay Tsunami.”
Koh Tsu Koon pointed out that not long after the nomination day Lim Kit Siang had denied the notion of the outsiders that he was sure to win in the Iskandar Puteri parliamentary constituency which was formerly known as Gelang Patah. Lim Kit Siang also had reservations about his chances of winning the election; he had even said the constituency had become dangerous as there was an increase of 3% Malay electorates.
“If at all there is Malay tsunami, the 3% increase in Malay voters should favour him, but why did he say the increase is against him, he is really slapping his own face.”
He was also puzzled by the recent claims of Lim Guan Eng that the Pakatan Harapan’s situation in the Penang state was critical. He asked Lim Guan Eng if many Chinese voters were supporting Pakatan Harapan, coupled with the Malay tsunami, how could the situation become critical for Pakatan Harapan? Lim Guan Eng again was slapping his own face.
“From this point, we can see that the ‘Malay tsunami’ that they mentioned about is actually a ‘Malay joke’.”
