Parents’ love know no boundary

Today, 48 hours before the XII General Elections, saw three generations of a family coming down to campaign for BN candidate for P005 Jerlun Dato’ Mukhriz Mahathir. Former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and wife, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd. Ali had separate itineraries meeting the Jerlun voters. Despite Tun Dr. Mahathir just recovered from a second coronary arterial coronary by-pass surgery done six months ago and Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah was recently admitted for orthopedic pains, they made time to help their son out.


This evening, they all converged in the Kerpan Chinese Hall to join Mukhriz for a dinner hosted by community leaders with the Chinese residents of Jerlun, organised by Jerlun MCA. Both of them were joined by Mukhriz’s wife of 14 years Datin Norzieta Zakaria and son, Misha Hakeem Mukhriz, ten. Also present were Jerlun UMNO Head and BN Chief Dato’ Abdul Rahman Ariffin, BN candidate for DUN 03 Kota Siputeh Dato’ Abu Hassan Sarif and BN candidate for DUN 04 Air Hitam Dato’ Osman Aziz.


Yesterday, Mukhriz’s campaign trail was joined by his two elder brothers, En. Mirzan Mahathir and Dato’ Mokhzani Mahathir. Mokhzani’s wife, Datin Mastissa Mohamed, joined Norzieta for meet-the-ladies session in Kampung Padang Maharaja and a ‘sukaneka’ at Padang Perahu. Norzieta brought her six year old, Serena and Mastissa brought her six year old too, Lara.


They, especially the kids had a ball of their time experienciing the kampung social gathering and making new friends, here in Jerlun. It is evidently clear that the people of Jerlun were warm and pleasantly accommodative to their present.
