Thank goodness, UMNO Youth heads honcho has found a new hobby; he’s all-out to burn excessive body fat!

PEACE LOVING Malaysians are truly indebted to the miraculous cure prescribed by His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim King of Malaysia for the damning “boycott” word has suddenly disappeared from the feisty vocabulary of UMNO Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh.

More importantly, after having had an audience with Malaysia’s 17th Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA), there has been a 180-degree change in the Merlimau state assemblyman – there is this aura of pleasant demeanour in the 36-year-old politician as if he had shed the budak nakal (literally naughty kid) reputation so synonymous with him over the past one month.

Most interesting is the very fact that the Melaka state executive councillor in-charge of rural development, agriculture and food security has a new-found pastime (hopefully one that can last a lifetime) to divert his attention away from his one ‘favourite action’ of spewing hatred and sowing discord among multi-racial and multi-religious Malaysians.

Over the past 48 hours or so, the Russia-trained medical doctor has embarked on physical exercise by ‘running his heart out’ in the quest “to burn excessive bodily fat”.

This is certainly an invaluable hobby given Dr Akmal not only can improve his fitness level while keeping his body in shape but able to divert his attention away from being part of the toxic political culture which threatens to create a divisive Malaysian society as can be witnessed from the furore he whipped up from the KK Super Mart sock-gate controversy.

It is hoped that more politicians – both young and old – would emulate the UMNO Youth head to champion physical fitness as an antidote to spewing venomous political rhetoric that can tear the fabric of Malaysian society apart. – April 12, 2024
