KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 4 – Datuk Seri Nazir Razak today took to social media again to express his concerns over the state of the country, claiming that Malaysia is facing its “darkest” of times.
The brother of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak posted a collage of three pictures on photo sharing site Instagram, depicting current issues that appear to imply that the country is at an all-time low.
“I don’t remember a time when just absolutely everything seems to be going badly for Malaysia. I pray that this is the darkest before dawn,” read the caption on the CIMB group chairman’s post earlier today.
The first picture showed a man with a face mask standing in front of a hazy Petronas Twin Towers which highlighted the worsening haze situation this week.
The second picture showed a graph depicting the ringgit’s downwards trajectory against the US dollar, while the third picture highlighted the 10-nil drubbing of Malaysia’s national football team by the United Arab Emirates last night in a World Cup qualifying match.
Nazir had previously used Instagram to take subtle jabs at current issues including the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) crisis and the abrupt transfers of Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) officers over their investigation on the state-owned investment fund.
