And because it is getting serious, there really is a need for them, especially since they hold some public office or position of responsibility or authority, to first engage their brain, no matter how small, to take deep breaths, to bite their tongues or, indeed, to do all of the above, before they open their rather big mouths to speak.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
