The motherly and caring quality of interim Prime Minister’s wife Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali stands out as she stopped by and distributed a bucket of chocolates to members of the media flocking outside the Perdana Putra in Putrajaya today.
Siti Hasmah was believed to be heading to the Prime Minister’s Office at about 10am when she stopped by the entrance of the protocol route and greeted about 30 media personnel there.
“Come… take it,” she said while handing out a bucket of chocolates with a smile.
When asked about her health, Siti Hasmah replied: “Alhamdulillah, I’m fine.
“Take care of yourself!” she added.
Her husband Dr Mahathir Mohamad had arrived at the Prime Minister’s Office at 8.30am.
On Monday, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah consented to the appointment of Mahathir as interim prime minister.
