Posted by temasektimes on August 8, 2012
Contrary to rumors spreading like wildfire online and in the HDB heartlands, Singapore’s supreme leader Lee Kuan Yew is ‘alive and kicking’, wrote SPH political journalist Tessa Wong.
In a post on her Twitter, Tessa Wong revealed that Lee has a meeting with her colleague today:
“People. LKY not dead. Okay? My colleague is seeing him tomorrow. And not in a mortuary.”
A former Prime Minister for 25 years, Lee was widely regarded as the founding father of Singapore.
At a ripe 88 years of age, Lee is still serving as a Member of Parliament at his constituency of Tanjong Pagar.
