Koleksi Lawak MP Malaysia di Dewan Rakyat:



1MDB CEO Mohd Hazem Abdul Rahman is resigning from his job today and will be replaced by Abu Dhabi-based Malaysian banker Arul Kanda Kandasamy.

Something brewing?

It would be great if you could cover topics on human trafficking and the corrupt practices that is common among our local enforcement agencies that allow vice activities to thrive in our country.
