Tok Mun starting her campaign

28 Feb

Well. This fiesty old lady never ceases to amaze me. Maimun Yusof (or Tok Mun) has started her campaign, according to The Star. RM 200 for a bilik gerakan and another RM 300 to fix the stairs to her dilapidated house is where her self-funded campaign money is going to that the moment. I wonder if she has people contributing to her campaign? My conversations with my friends about her over the last 24 hours has been a mixture of amusement and maybe bordering on the ridiculing. How is an 89 year old grandmother going to sustain herself if she gets elected? Where is her support structure? Those are indeed valid questions but maybe a little bit of simplicity and even naivety could be good for us all. Besides, the romance of the underdog against the established David versus Goliath thing has always appealed to me.
