PRC journalist: Ma Chi is a son of Ma Kai, a senior communist official in China

The dead Ferrari driver Ma Chi (马驰) responsible for causing a fatal accident in Bugis which cost the lives of two innocent victims may be a son of a senior communist official in China which may explain the ‘preferential’ treatment dished out to him by the Singapore media.
Despite his heinous act, Ma Chi was glorified unashamedly as a ‘tall and young, rich and successful’ tycoon by the tabloids which have been harping on his immense ‘wealth’ ad nausem.
According to one PRC journalist Cao Guoxing (曹国星), Ma Chi is a son of Ma Kai (马凯), a high-ranking Chinese official.
Ma Kai holds the following positions in the PRC government:
“State Councilor and State Council Secretary-General, the President of the National School of Administration, Western Region Development of the State Council Leading Group Office.” (Source: Xinhua)
Cao initially made the stunning claim on his Chinese microblog ‘Weibo’, but the post was quickly deleted five minutes later, though not before it was circulated widely by PRC netizens elsewhere.
In the post, Cao published three photos showing uncanny similarities in physical features between Ma Kai’s wife and Ma Chi’s mother:
He also asked why Ma Chi became a ‘Sichuanese’ suddenly:
Ma Chi came to Singapore a few years ago and had applied for Singapore PR before the accident. He reportedly made his immense wealth estimated at a few million dollars from ‘investments’. Till today, his family has yet to apologize to the victims on his behalf or offer any sort of compensation to their families.
