Tun Ghafar Baba Passes On

Former Deputy Prime Minister Tun Ghafar Baba has passed away this morning of heart, lung and kidney complications at the Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre in Jalan Ampang at the age of 81. His remains will be taken to the National Mosque after Zohor prayers for the leaders and the public to pay their last respects from 2pm to 3pm. Tun Ghafar will be accorded a state funeral in appreciation of his immense contributions to the nation and the people.

As a sign of respect, there will be no more posts for today. My condolences to the family. Malaysians will mourn the lost of a true grassroots statesman.
