INTELLIGENCE and education are separate matters. Intelligence is born with a person, whereas Education is knowledge acquired through learning.  Unfortunately, Education does not contribute to intelligence. This was demonstrated at the Kuala Lumpur High Court just last week during a Corruption trial.  The case between Tengku Adnan and Deputy Public Prosecutor, Cik Julia Ibrahim.  Details of the proceedings were widely published in the Daily Express – front page and Page 6 on Friday, 6th March 2020. The corruption case involved RM2 million given to Tengku Adnan by businessman Tan Sri Chai Kin Kong.

AS Pakatan Harapan scrambled with another round of new numbers, trying to convince the King to reconsider his decision about the next Prime Minister, we saw the system staying the course admirably. The most impressive part of this power struggle is the fact that it has been peaceful, even as indications swung profusely back and forth.

THE sudden political change and the surprise announcement of a new prime minister have created anxiety and concern over the future direction of the country.
