And we wonder why he was fighting so hard, claiming that he had the majority to form the government. What goes around always comes around.@Insanity_is_ via Twitter
Moreover, according to reports by The Star, as the former Prime Minister left the Shah Alam court, his supporters gave their support by chanting “Hidup Tan Sri”.
The Star also reported that in a brief press conference after hearing the charge against him, Muhyiddin said that the court has agreed to move his cases to the Kuala Lumpur court.

What your family is feeling is nothing compared to the thousands of families, and lives, you ruined during your utterly inept premiership. I hope they continue to feel this way.@tweetingdoubts via Twitter

That’s what the citizens of Malaysia felt the last time when we were locked up. What do you want to eat tomorrow, how do you want to pay the rent, there is no work, no savings. Do you feel us now?@KyaryHime via Twitter
