For all the hype that Mahathir’s done in support of his friends at BERSIH, the fossil will not be attending the rally on Saturday. Instead, he will be flying off to Sweden. And it won’t be the first time that he leaves the country after causing something bad.
19th November will also be the 31st anniversary of the Memali tragedy. Mahathir left the country a few days after that while his then-deputy Musa Hitam took all the flak for the mishandling of the event.
