The charismatic leader of UMNO's Youth Wing Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein came out to apologise to both Malays and non-Malays for his most contentious wielding of Malay keris in the past three years during the annual general assemblies of the Youth Wing.
Despite all the loud public outcry and the overwhelming protests by MCA and DAP, Hishammuddin yielded to no pressure. Pak Lah also kept mum over the highly sensitive raising of sword.
Alas, it was none other than the mighty political tsunami on March 8 that cooled off the overheated heads of the UMNO leaders and woke them up to the reality.
The votes on March 8 spoke a lot louder than words.
Little wonder that more voters in Sibu now wish their votes to speak for them in the next State election on the burning issues!
