Former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad has confessed to having repented in response to those who advised the 92-year-old politician to atone.
He said this during a live session he had on his Facebook page.
“It is because I have repented that I am forced to focus on problems plaguing the country.
“I cannot ignore it. I am witnessing various wrongdoings and with many people having asked me to do something,” he said.
In the same breath, the former strong man of Malaysia said he has seen the light that he embarked on a quest against wrongdoings.
During the Facebook live session, Mahathir, who is now chairperson of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), urged youths to keep abreast with current developments so they do not inherit a nation in ruins.
He said before the country is destroyed, they must know what to do and decide that these culprits will not be able to continue destroying the country after the general election.
In another comment, he said he might consider returning as Prime Minister if his friends in the opposition wishes him to do so.
“I cannot ignore my friends in the Pakatan Harapan coalition. If they have such a plan and it is agreed upon, I may be forced to consider,” he said.
However, he stressed that he does not agree to become the prime minister again.
