'Kings of Tennis' a royal letdown
It was supposed to be a ‘clash of titans’, a chance for local tennis fans to watch legends of the game battle it out live. Instead of being a feather in the cap of the new Pakatan Rakyat state government, the ‘Kings of Tennis’ tournament has instead become an embarrassing debacle.
The cancellation of the event has also dealt a big blow to the new Penang government, which prides itself as the country’s first ‘CAT’ administration based on competency, accountability and transparency.
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/opposition 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.
