The Orang Asli live in poverty in Sarawak for decades, no clean water no electricity and the Penan girls were (allegedly) raped..

Wow!!! Look at the properties he (or his family) owns, richer than Dr M and many more BN politicians???

(Is he) the richest politician in this … Boleh land(?)

We just have too many (of these) type of politicians no wonder the people suffer !!!
