  • I also wonder why an elected representative found guilty of corruption is still free roaming around the country, the Segamat law maker can still performed his duties as long as he is connected ie WFH but the najis who question Segamat where about is even worst as he was sleeping while at work and has to be pull his ears by his wife on how to do his work which is stealing the nation wealth.
