'Man in a hurry' Adenan sacrificed himself for S'wak, says lecturer
Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem sacrificed himself for the state and her people, according to University Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) professor Jeniri Amir.
Jeniri said Adenan knew he was in poor health, but steeled his resolve to fight for the people.
"He was committed to place the people's interests above his own, even though he had to sacrifice his life," the academic told Malaysiakini.
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.
