Malaysia’s Rosmah Mansor, Singapore’s Ho Ching: BFFs? You must be kidding!
Satirical skit by actors Ivan Heng and Siti Khalijah Zainal underlines the fall from grace of the wife of Malaysia’s former leader Najib Razak – someone whom, just months ago, few would have dared to lampoon
Rosmah Mansor, the wife of the disgraced former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak, and Ho Ching, the wife of the Singaporean leader Lee Hsien Loong, may no longer be so close in real life, but that has not stopped satirists in the Lion City from imagining them to be the best of friends.
Tickling Singaporeans’ funny bone on Sunday was a video clip circulating online of a skit by popular local actors Ivan Heng and Siti Khalijah Zainal assuming the role of the two political spouses.
The skit underlined once again Rosmah’s fall from grace since the May 9 general election that dethroned her husband.
